Irritated!!
 
I am so beyond irritated right now. I gave a mama a fantastic deal on 14 brand new, prepped prefolds in exchange for 2 "EUC" BG 4.0s (with inserts) and $5 PayPal, only for her to turn around and sell them for a hefty profit. The BGs I received were definitely seconds quality: the inner fabric is not suedecloth, and the PUL is so sticky, it's impossible to stuff the pocket. Also, the inserts were so heavily used that you couldn't even make out "Bumgenius" on the tag. I'm out $10 in shipping costs for two crappy pockets. Lesson learned. Never trading again. Just had to vent. Grrrr!

Eww, I'm irritated for you. You should be able to return them or something because they definitely weren't as described.

That sucks :( I would be annoyed too and maybe ask for a partial refund. I have almost stopped buying used because I was so sick of the condition crap shoot. Don't get me wrong, I have gotten some awesome deals in great transactions, but 10% of the time I am disappointed. I don't know...it makes me wonder if some people just haven't seen new so they don't realize how worn things are, especially wool?

Aww, can you contact the mama? I wish to do trades lately since I'm broke and hate to see people not wanting to do them because someone else messed it up. :(

Partial suede cloth, partial fleece! On the same diaper! So strange.

That's what I'm wondering..if they're not suedcloth, I bet it's the limited edition fleece, and those are actually pretty rare and people might really be ISO of those. Sticky PUL doesn't necessarily mean they're in bad condition either..but ya, the inserts sound kind of iffy.
So I don't get it, what is she selling the prefolds for? Prefolds are heavy to ship..so she's probably just trying to re-coup funds, it's pretty impossible to make $ of off prefolds.

Yes, I can in the AM. The insert flap piece is fleece, and the actual lining is suede cloth. And the PUL is shot. Leaked straight through.
