Weirdest eBay Occurrence...

Postby jillrose » Thu Nov 30, 2017 3:34 pm

Hi collecting friends! I've been quiet lately due to work, but I had some kinda bummed-out experiences this month with collecting and thought it might help me to share.

First - my beautiful display all had to come down in October! :cry: It was for good reason: my husband and I needed to have a new carpet installed in our bedroom (where my collection shelves are) and therefore all the furniture had to be moved. It was obviously much safer for me to box up LPS world than to attempt moving the cabinets with all the displays inside (DISASTER waiting to happen). I'm disappointed that I haven't had time yet to put all the display shelves back in order. So the cabinets have my collection inside..all boxed up!! AAAAARGH.

Second - I had a very odd situation on eBay. I paid for two rather pricey Baby Buddies MIB auctions. They were from a power seller, over 1000+ feedback, dozens of items for sale - mostly other vintage toys. I saw an update go in that a tracking number had been assigned, but then, nothing ever shipped! I messaged the seller a few times, but then finally opened a case with eBay. eBay was quick to refund me, but the seller never answered...and I've watched as all of their auctions have ended in droves, with nothing getting re-posted. No feedback has been received, and no activity from them since the day they input the tracking #s. Obviously something unplanned happened, but it's just...weird. And obviously, I'm bummed to have never received these rare MIB sets!! AAAAAAAAAARGH again!

I can't help but wonder what happened :shock:

Ugh thats so annoying. Sorry to hear that. I recently had a seller cancel a sale after I won the auction too. "Lost item". :cry:

I thought you already had the Baby Buddies complete. Maybe they will magically turn up!
