I'm a bit at my wit's end right now. I ordered a Pyrite artist's doll from Blythedolly on October 8, sending most of the money then. We agreed that I would send the rest when the doll was finished (which I did). I also told this person at the very beginning that I would like the doll by Thanksgiving, since I would have a break then-I said when Thanksgiving is, and how long my break would be, since she (?) is in France and wouldn't know otherwise. This person agreed on that date, saying it would be no problem. The biggest issue I have had is with communication. There were long communication gaps, and I didn't get a reply unless I sent anywhere from one to three PMs. I also didn't get updates when I was told I would-I was told the doll was done but had to prod repeatedly for pictures, as I really didn't want to give the 'OK' unless I saw them. Now I had asked about the doll being shipped-Blythedolly said all along that as soon as the doll was done and I'd finished payment, it would be shipped. Well, it was done about a week ago, according to the PMs I have. I asked when the doll would be shipped, and all of the sudden the person is telling me that it will be ON Thanksgiving, at the soonest. I asked why, and she (again, ??) told me that the money had to get into her (?) account, and that was the way it was in France, that money went into their accounts at the end of the month. I asked why the money for shipping wasn't put aside, then, if I'd made my feelings clear early on-and also why I wasn't informed earlier that the doll wouldn't get here. Her (?) reply today was: So she is threatening to leave me bad feedback when I had said that I would leave neutral, for the communication gaps and her poor planning, while also not telling me that it would be later than we had agreed on. She (?) lead me to believe that my doll was about to go in the mail when the deadline we'd agreed on would not be met. I just want my doll at this point, and will likely never do business with this person again. If the mods want me to include screencaps I will be glad to. I'd had to prod to even see if my money had been received and for pictures, but Blythedolly was more than happy to tell me how much money I owed instead of sending me the pictures that had been promised. PMs were quick when this started and they wanted me to commit to buying, but now there hasn't even been an apology, just accusations.
