Sorry but I need to vent. I have a Damier Saleya MM for sale on eBay and I just received a message from an ebayer saying that she has bought many LV items before and has never seen a piece of cardboard inside. "Sorry," she says. "I'm just very skeptical." I have a picture of inside of the Saleya in my auction. The inside still has the original packaging because it has never been used. The more structured items like the Saleya and the Alma DO come with cardboard inside. I was so frustrated. The thing about eBay that really gets under my skin are emails like this. Its like the person wants me to write a essay to them about why I think they should buy my item. As a seller I often have really long descriptive auctions and always answer questions as soon as i can. But when I get someone like this who thinks they are a know it all and are SO wrong--I get really frustrated. I answered the email and told her that the item did in fact come that way and to please look at my feedback and she can see my history of buying and selling authentic items. And also to check with her local LV and they could confirm that the Saleya is packaged that way. I ended the email and told her that if she was still skeptical then she should not bid. Was that mean? I want to sell my bag but if someone is so reluctant it scares me a bit. What if she tried to do a bait and switch later or something. I dunnno. It seems like too much trouble. Sometimes eBay can be really frustrating. I don't want to come off as a B**chy seller but I hate to be lumped into the same category as counterfits by getting those type of emails. I guess its just me. But if I see an eBay auction that I'm not sure about I contact the seller, ask for more info and make my decision from there. I don't harrass the seller by saying "are you sure? are you sure its real? how do i know? are you sure? how do I know?" I just don't bid It just seems dumb. Now i kind of understand why some sellers put in their auctions to not ask about authenticity because its guaranteed. Getting those kinds of emails from inexperienced LV buyers all day could run you crazy. Sorry this was so long. Thanks for letting me vent.
