First, just let me say that I enjoy ebay and have had some lovely finds on there. Usually they are from people that do not have a permanent store but just want to sell a few things. I did that for a couple of weeks once. However...now and then...this happens. More than it should but..
Anyway...I spotted this adorable little bunny basket dish...LOVED the color and wanted it for Easter. So..I jumped in the bidding. No..that isn't true. I "lurked" for a bit...and then snapped it up. Anyway...I thought it was so cute!
I was delighted when it finally arrived..late..but it was finally here and when I opened it...box was full of peanuts..and reach down through it all...this is what I found. NO bubble wrap, not even paper..which is bad..but nothing..just peanuts..and it was BROKEN!! Well..sh..I mean shoot!! All this waiting and it is broken..
Now..I know from past experience it is going to cost me to return it..so..I write and tell the seller..it arrived broken..and that he must pack things in bubble wrap and even two boxes if necessary with peanuts on the outside..as the post office beats the holy heck out of things! Within an hour after I informed him that it arrived broken..he had refunded my money. I was so happy, I mean, what a sweetheart. I sent him pictures but I also told him I would keep it and try to repair it, that the piece was there..except for a couple of tiny chips.
Yes..I feel bad..but..it's a dish for heavens sake!!! Sooo...
I glued it. And though not as good as new...
I think he looks sweet and I think I like him even more. Like me...he isn't perfect! ~BIG smile~
Love and hugs..have a wonderful Wednesday..
