:hi: Rose: I absolutely agree with 'Life will throw you a lemon -- but make Lemonade' and 'With Sunny days, some rain must fall too'. That's a pretty good philosophy to live by. Your bowl is very, very pretty, whatever the reason for its 'peculiarities'. Beauty, as it's said, is in the eye of the beholder and THAT is its true value. It's also true with buying AND selling that some you win, some you lose. You just have to make certain that you mostly, if not virtually always, win!!! BUT I hope you made sure to get a part refund .... we're not fools!!!! :X:
They did offer my my money back and I could return the item. BUT I am thinking that they are going to try to *resell* the item to another
. So I told them that is not right. [ I think they will try to resell as I know they had others interested in it besides me ]
So I said that I would not return it to be re-sold .....but was asking for half my money back.
They would not go for that.....so whatever.
Their words -- One moment they thought that was normal pontil mark on the bottom (2 of them
) and start telling me all about Pontil marks and Murano glass. So I sent them a email saying "Gee, why suddenly you know so much about Glass, pontil marks in your defense -- but then do not mention it." I honestly thought it was a *reflection* in the photos, as we see those all the times.
Guess I should have asked IF it was a reflection? Stupid me.
Anyways, I will not return the item to be re-sold to another......and it looks like they will not give me half my money back. So be it. I let them know what I thought of them, and told them I had a conscience that "this item should not be re-sold at all."
IF I have to suck up the cost of this item --- to save another glass person from buying this item if they try to re-sell --- So Be it. I will suck it up to save another Glassie from buying this item!!
At least I have a conscience.....
Yes in Life -- Some Rain must fall ( ... but I gave them some *thunderous Words* ..... )
