The bottom line is this:
I paid for lamps that were described as "excellent" condition. They arrived damaged due to the fact that the seller packaged them poorly, thus they were NOT in excellent condition as promised.
The exterior of the box was undamaged, so the post office was obviously not responsible for her grossly inadequate packing job.
I contacted the seller as soon as I opened the box to notify her of the damage. She said told me it was too bad, they had deposited my check & she was adamant that she would not refund my money.
She did not hold her end of the bargain, to deliver "excellent" condition lights for the price paid. The goods were damaged due to her actions. She is liable & I will be pursing this further.
Like I said before, be warned. She touts herself as honest, but her actions speak louder than words.
