Busy day! [Jul. 26th, 2003|12:04 am]

I've finished two paintings today - I'll post them tomorrow and put them up on eBay then too =) I'm too beat to scan them in tonight.

Attn: eBay sellers - I've got a dilemma!! I shipped a painting out a week or two ago, and the winner left some positive feeback a few days ago, said she loved the painting, etc. I assumed it arrived safely. But then, day before yesterday, the exact same painting was returned to me by the postman, apparently unopened and stamped "undeliverable address" or something like that. I've tried emailing the bidder, trying to figure out what on earth is going on, but there has been no response - how weird is that? Any suggestions?

I'm off to answer some mounds of email! Hopefully I'll get through the older ones tonight. So - if anybody gets some week-late LJ responses to their posts, don't be surprised!!!

Okay - that is a freaky thing! Any chance it was one of your trippier paintings, like the little lady in the Lousiana cemetary.......?

YEAH! And how BIZARRE is that? I think someone's messin' w/youuuuuuuuuu (eerie haunting noises)

Okay, a freaky painting with a freaky store - COOL!

Hubby just asked - did somehow a print get mixed up with the painting...? You got paid already, yes? This is so weird!

Yep! She paid instantly with paypal, and left positive feedback already. There is no way I accidentally sent her the wrong package, or anything like that! It arrived back to me unopened....

That is weird?? I would request the bidders contact info and give her a call. If you can't get in touch with her I'll gladly buy it from you for the same price ;)

I think I'll do that if she doesn't email me back soon. I'm worried!

Hehe - I'll keep that in mind.... I'm half tempted to keep her for myself though (mwah haha!)

I would be too! She hasn't bid on anything else lately either.

Ok :) She got that painting at a bargain! Doesn't she realize that! I sure do. Where was I when that auction ended!!

Hmmmmm

I had that happen once. She never paid me for the piece even though I tried to contact her numerous times. She left positive feedback though raving about how lovely the painting was.....CRAZY I TELL YOU!!!!

Sorry to chime in so late, but I was sleeping.

Jasmine that is really eerie. Especially due to the subject of the painting =\ Have you tried calling her?

I'm going to email her one more time, and then I'll get her number from eBay. I mean, she's already paid me - I want it to get to her!

Did she send you any reply after she won it? Or was it just an auto reply with pay pal. Also, has she ever purchased anything from you before? I've never had anything like that happen with addresses of buyers, but then again I don't do nearly HALF the amount of business that you do. I'd be a bit worried though =\

Keep us posted. It really does sound a bit strange. Has this ever happened to you before in all your years of selling on eBay? I mean, why would she pay for it and then give you the wrong address? Was it a confirmed address?

Wow. That is strange. Hmmm...mystery. Guess all you really can do is wait and see if she gets back to you. If she doesn't, you should keep the painting for yourself since you never get too. ;)

????? Is it a possibility that she left feedback before recieving it? One of my customers left positive feedback right after winning the painting. Other than that I have no idea!

She must have, since it appears unopen, and the post office says that it was undeliverable. I hope she writes back soon!

try the usps shipper's assistant, free software you download from usps.com and you can enter the address and click "standardize" so that the address is a valid one, you then don't have to go through with the transaction and print the priority mail label if it's not priority mail, but if it is priority or express mail, you can print the label with the delivery confirmation already included on it.

hope this helps. i think this is weird too tho.
