    He wrote me back saying he would replace the broken jars free of charge. I suppose I can't expect more than that.

    He offered to replace mine too. The only thing is he told me that mine is an isolated incident which I know not to be true. Anyway, I said that he needed to improve the packaging. Otherwise, it is definitely going to happen again. Well, let's wait and see.

    Yeah - I had 8 jars in a box with one plastic grocery store bag and a thin sheet of bubble wrap. :(

    I bought two and they came in two layers of bubble wrap. The big bubble wrap stuff.

    My jars showed up fine somehow - wrapped in the small bubble wrap. However, after the wax part of the order was shipped I got a refund for one wax plus shipping as he found out after the fact from his supplier that one of them was sold out. Not a huge deal, but the offer was just to repurchase the one he couldn't ship initially with full boat shipping vs. at the combined shipping rate. Again, not a huge deal, but a little annoying.

    BTW, how would you recommend I leave feedback as I'm happy except for the one that wasn't sent? 5 star for all but one of them and 3-4 star for the one I bought he couldn't deliver? Or should I just be a good guy and give him 5 star across the board? Leaning toward the latter.

    5 stars. I only give less if the customer service is bad

    Agreed. Low star ratings really hurt the seller disproportionally. I lost my top rated status which cost me an extra 20% on all my fees. At the very least give the person the opportunity to make it right first.

    My jars arrived unbroken but the packing wasn't adequate. Just luck that they were intact.

    Carmina Split Toes. 9.5 Wide - $75 start.

    '
    This is not correct. These aren't Carminas. They are Yankos. They are 2 different companies that only share that were created by the same person and that both are in Mallorca. Yanko retails in Spain for around EUR 180-220 for Goodyear while Carmina does it for over EUR 300.

    Sorry. It said "Yanko by Carmina" so I thought it was a Polo by C&J situation. Good to know.
