Broke My Own Rule

In my last post, I adamantly wrote that I don’t buy from online sellers who don’t allow returns…and I encouraged you to follow suit. And then what do I do?  Yup…bought from an all-sales-final seller. And if that wasn’t bad enough the item details had spelling and grammar mistakes that drove me a bit crazy:

ALL SALES ARE SOLD AS IS AND ALL SALES ARE FINALE … IF YOU BID YOU ARE EXCEPTING NO RETURN POLICY IF THEIR IS A PROBLEM PLEASE CONTACT ME ,I WILL DO MY BEST TO WORK WITH YOU.

So, why did I do it? I had some eBay Bucks to use before they expired so I starting looking for well-priced, interesting items. And I found this little box with semi-precious stones.

Sweet right? In a slightly garish, blingy, handcrafty way!

I’m a sucker for little boxes and I could see this on someone’s bedroom dresser or even on a coffee table. And I thought if I can get it for the opening bid, with the discount of my eBay Bucks, it will be a super price and worth the gamble of buying from this seller. She thought the box might be silver plated. I’m thinking not. Just some base metal and was probably made in India or Thailand. Okay, it’s not a high-end piece, but still worth it. Hoping the stones really are stones. 🙂

Moral of the story: Some rules are made to be broken! At least that’s what I’m saying this week!!

Happy 4th of July and happy hunting.
