Speaking of Evilbay…we were, weren’t we? Or was it just me?
ANYWAY – have 2 babies on the Bay at the moment, one is Gabriel and the other is Gemma. Neither have any bids. I plan to keep relisting them till the cows come home, whenever that is.
So, I get a message last night on Ebay from someone telling me that she bought a custom baby boy from me 3 yrs. ago and that she loved it sooooo much, looked just like a real baby.
Then she says her home was broken in to and her reborn was STOLEN! OH NO!!!
Now she wants me to make her another one just like it and give her a layaway and oh gosh, isn’t that all just too bad, so sad???
The problems are this:
A) I do not do custom orders, not in 2011 and not now – I do NOT do them
B) Her house was robbed & they took A DOLL??? SERIOUSLY!!! How many robbers do you think know the value of a DOLL??? Or CARE!!! Now, I happen to think I do “okay” work, but worthy of breaking in and stealing??? NO…not in a million years.
C) My dolls are priced very reasonably and I don’t offer layaway…not in 2011 and not now.
D) Even if I wanted to make another doll EXACTLY like one I’ve made before, I could not and would not. We are artists, not copy machines. No two babies will ever look EXACTLY alike. Gee. I hope in 3 years’ time I’ve improved my technique, even if just a little bit.
Just another example of who’s out there, trying to bag a deal. Thought it might bring a smile to your face this afternoon.
p.s. The cows haven’t come home yet
