This blog is a question to all of my followers. How many of you ladies participated in these swap and sale pages from websites such as specktra.net, makeupalley, etc?
Some of the makeup products I've been looking for as of late have been hard-to-find items that have been discontinued. After I do indeed find some of these items in the swap n' sale sections. I find it quite irritating to get my hopes up, only to be later disappointed because the other person goes *poof* and isn't around to complete the sale.
In fact, the last person I tried to purchase from wrote a VERY LONG story about how she had to sell off most of her collection in order to help pay her student loans. I figured that this would be a person much more willing to follow thru on selling/trading. But I was wrong and now she suddenly is nowhere to be found either. And it's not like I said anything to turn her off. All the conversation really consisted of was me asking if the item was still for sale, her saying yes, and then offering to pay for the price she was offering. That was 3 days ago... and haven't heard anything back.
Anyways it may sound like I'm ranting over nothing but this has been going on for about a week now. It's especially frustrating when it comes to rare items that I've discovered.
If you're somebody posting your items up for sale, then suddenly change your mind about wanting to sell. At least have the courtesy to tell the person know because letting a person hang like that is very rude in my opinion.
So is this how it usually goes in the swap/sale sections? Or am I just having some really bad luck?
