Glad you shared your story. Hopefully someone will read it and 'do the right thing'
I am always looking for glasses in their original boxes, and you either get the people who stuff the over-wrapped glasses back into the box (breaking the box) or who assume the original cardboard separators will be enough to survive shipping. There are also many good sellers out there!
: Hi ...saw you board and decided to add my story....saw an ad for beautiful shot glasses, set of 6, pastel colored with clear glass inserts for $5 for all....texted the woman who had them asked if she could ship, I agreed to a $15 ship fee. I was so excited to have purchased this set...I didn't even open the box for 2 days because I had to clean a shelf for them. Shelf cleaned I sat and slowly cut through the well taped box...once opened I stared in horror at the tiny shards of glass piercing through Wal-Mart bags...I couldn't believe the woman had not wrapped the inserts separately, she wrapped the delicate pastel glasses with the inserts together in plastic Wal-Mart bags...the only 2 pastel glasses that survived were the shades of green, 4 inserts...I am an eBay seller and know how to pack glass items...didn't think I had to explain the obvious but....lesson learned...sadly..
