A couple of weeks ago, I won an item on Ebay that I was so excited to get. It was a Betty Crocker acrylic cupcake stand. I saw it on a fellow Fiesta fan's website. She used it to hold her Fiesta salt and pepper shakers. It looked pretty awesome, and it was a fun way to display the shakers. I did an auto search on Ebay and watched them for a few months and finally one popped up with a great price and I jumped on it!
When it got here, the package was a little smooshed, so I took pictures before I opened it, just in case it was damaged. It wasn't damaged. It was worse! 3 little parts were missing! Even though they were little parts, they were crucial to the design.
I sent the seller an email immediately, just in case she forgot to include them in the box. She didn't have them,and told me she'd give me some sort of a refund. I informed her that it didn't work at all without them and she gave me a full refund.
So, now I have some parts to a tiered cupcake stand that can't be put together, but at least I'm not out any money. I should probably just throw the parts out, but I hate to throw perfectly good things away!
I'm so bummed! I was so looking forward to it! Back to the drawing board and searching for another one in my el-cheap-o price range!
