Thank you all so much for your comments and feedback! I really needed to get that off my chest. So Paypal ruled in my favour because the merchant did not respond to the claim within 10 days. However, she did not have sufficient funds in her account, so I was refunded $2.26 of the $38 I paid in total ($30 for the necklace and $8 for international shipping). I'm not sure what to do next. It's gotten to a point where I am sick of sending emails and leaving random comments. It's her responsibility to get back to me - not mine.
So I've decided to reveal the merchant on my blog as a public service to all of the crafty gals/guys out there. I'm sure people have had fine experiences with her, but mine was not.
Here's the necklace I was to receive, but never did. BTW, she's upped the prices of her necklaces to $40, so beware.
So apart from this negative blight, my weekend was great even though the weather was crappy. On Saturday Pinn and I went to the Hobby Show in Odaiba (photos to come) and on Sunday Darin and I went to America....well actually we just made a trip out to Costco but the size and price of the pizza slices and the free soda refills led us to believe we were really in the US!! Photos to come!
