Comment: I finally received this swap. Yes, the mail is slow but this was postmarked as being mailed 8 days late. I do thank you for the wrapped gifts. The little gel pens are very cute and I can put the tiny clothes pins to good use. Thank you
Comment: Contacted member about the swap requirements not being met, but never received anything as discussed. I will change if I receive a replacement for the swap.
Response: I have sat with this rating for a long time. She rated me a 3 because she didn't like what I sent not that I didn't follow the "swap requirements". She was displeased with 1 specific line item. One of the items listed was: "Item from an indie/local brand you'd love to support". I am a small business owner and sent some items from my shop as I am an independent business....she didn't like what I sent and then asked me to resend something that better suited her taste. Once I did that she would fix my rating. Yes at first I said I would resend because I wanted to please her and get my rating fixed but after sitting with this I feel that is is unfair. Yes it did take me a long time to respond to this rating publicly and it has negatively affected the swaps and groups I can participate in, which hurts as I truly love this site.
