rity of your experiences on eBay have been positive", but you have left negative feedback for 20% of them. How do you explain that?
Do you regularly toss $100 at an auction you know nothing about? Seems rather idiotic to me. Erin provided an accurate description of what she was selling and was fully transparent. The fact that you chose not to read the details is not her problem, its yours.
What kind of GemLite do you think you can get for $76 Binksy? Does the $76 price point not seem odd?

Jim, I call it as I see it. I did not have an itchy finger to leave the feedback. I thought about it after the lamp arrived. Probably would have let it slide like I did with the Wave Machine and not post anything until I came to oozing goo to look up glitter refills and lo and behold are Erin's LOVE NOTES about the transaction of course EDITED to make her appear a victim. I had not posted anything. Then I thought about it some more. I mean I'm the one out almost $100. And I'm not the one who conveniently left out a lot of facts and I'm not the one who posted Lava GEMLITE MYSTIQUE GLITTER for the title of a lamp with NOT ONE SPARKLE OF GLITTER IN IT!!!
It would have been so easy for Erin to be more complete in information she knew (like I really don't know if it will still work as a lava lamp because I didn't try it after it melted) Also, WHY put a picture of the lamp functioning when it won't like that anymore and an actual glitter Gemlite lamp in the listing at all? Because that's the picture that shows up in the search list, a lamp you don't get and a lamp that won't work like it did in the picture! Regarding this transaction, the seller left A LOT OF INFO SHE KNEW out of the description. With all that Erin purports to know about these lava lamps, she sure didn't impart a lot of her knowledge to the bidders. Again, refer to the description:
The metal top and bottom are in good condition. The glass bottle is in good condition. THIS LAMP WILL WORK.
The lamp has been refilled with US Lava Lite formula - blue/purple. I did not refill it, it came that way when I bought it.
Well, an awful a lot was left out like, the metal top where she used JB Weld (not in the description, by the way but its mentioned on her thread on Oozing Goo ) did not hold and the lamp does NOT WORK AS PICTURED. Erin could easily have included current picture, added these tidbits of knowledge to the description, showed the top of the bottle with the masking tape removed and the which is how it arrived) among other things. She chose what to include and and she chose what not to include. I bid. I paid. I did my part.
A seller is not ENTITLED to positive feedback, they EARN it. Erin gets a F on all fronts.
I am not wading too deeply into this mess, but I do have to point out one observation.
Binsky - why do you have such an itchy trigger finger to leave seller's negative feedback? I see that you have left feedback on 90 occasions and close to 20% of the time it has been negative. That percentage is absolutely staggering to me. At some point you need to take a step back and ask yourself a simply question...
Do you gravitate towards horrid sellers or does the problem reside with you? I take one look at your feedback record and you know what conclusion I reach? Pain in the ass, not worth my time and will likely leave me negative feedback.
d me a PM. If we're not Friends yet, send me a Friend request.UPDATE: Does anybody want a Cosmic Window case? No top. No base pad. No globe. No electricals. Scratches and surface rust in a few places. It was sad and lonely when I grabbed it from a junk shop, and it's spent over 20 years sitting in storage.
