Firstly, Hello and Welcome to my 2 new followers Lisa May and Compost Woman. Thanks so much for visiting and taking the time to comment.
2 Ebay Auctions ended recently.
I sold a pair of shoes on Thursday and yesterday one of the Yves Saint Laurent make up palettes went too. The combined cash received should have been £43.74.
Note the “should have been”.
The lady who bought the shoes has not paid and despite repeated emails never responded, so today after warning her yesterday I referred the matter to the Ebay Resolution Centre. A few hours later I received an email from her stating her account had been hacked and she had not meant to buy them.
I do not think I believe her as she only has 3 feedbacks and 1 of them was bad saying she never paid. So I am stuck, I do not know what to do. Any ideas?
The make up palette buyer paid within a couple of hours and I will post it tomorrow.
It is all good news as it is money from my debt, and after checking my buyer is happy I have decided to knock it from Credit Card 2.
Still 2 items left which finish later today the Madonna catsuit and another YSL lip gloss palette. Both seem to be attracting little attention, but most of the bids seem to be in the last few minutes. Yesterday’s auction was at £7.50 until the last 30 seconds.
Once these are done I am going to have another rummage and see if anything else can be auctioned.
On a final note, I seem to have caused much debate with yesterday’s Egg Post. So many readers made very valid points and I do feel guilty at buying cheap eggs. No one local to me sells their own eggs from “back garden chickens” but I will keep a look out.
I would point out that until about 2 years ago when money really started drying up I always bought happy eggs.
I think it comes down the following decision, I will switch back to buying happy eggs, but in all honesty if it is the end of the month and money is very tight I probably will buy cheap eggs again if desperate.
Debbie, you made a very good point. When / where does ethical shopping end? I would happily always buy organic chicken and fair-trade but it so much more expensive.
Well, I can only do my bit I suppose when I can.
