Re: Help quick! Spots question
Oaky, I have never before ughed at a transaction issue...
Until now. Oh.My.Word (and in my defense, I didn't laugh until later postings )
It is obvious from the title what the price was supposed to have been.
I actually will buy something when I know it has to have been a mistake and then email the mama and let her know it seemed like a crazy good deal (like crankypants for $0 so I bought it to let her know so she could re-list and not have to deal with someone who would create an issue. I've been thanked multiple times and once, the mama even offered me the item for what she had listed it mistakenly at!

I messed up on a listing price once too - it was supposed to be $90 and it came out $0.
It was bought in like seconds - I had another mama email me to let me know that she thought I made a mistake. Which was really nice. I had another mama buy it.
I sent an email explaining what happened and apologized. I didn't hear back either way.
I don't know what the "official" policy is.
Just wanted to let you know you aren't alone.

i also think you can contact hyenacart about feedback and save correspondence just incase
Okay, I'm pregnant and hormonal too so I feel your pain but this is where I just busted out laughing.

Seriously?!?! Don't people have better stuff to do with their time?!?! Sure, harrass a hormonal pregnant lady.
I think she is being snarky. Hope so anyway! If not being snarky, she is a loon
I'd totally email her the bolded back as a response.Only because I am preggo and hormonal though

Tell her you refunded right away so that she may go pick up a skein of acrylic for $4 at Joann's as the cat won't know the difference.
I can see it now:
Dear buyer, I am sorry that your cat will not go to his final resting place in a sweater knit from this incredibly lovely yarn dyed by Morwenna. He must have been an incredible cat in order for you to take the time to properly store his remains while you searched for the perfect yarn to lovingly knit him a sweater.
The fact that you would search out such fine yarn and lovingly knit dear kitty a sweater,says a lot about your devotion to him.He must have been a wonderful companion during his time here on earth. I'm sure he is being missed.
I would like to recommend that you check out some of the colorways at your local craft shop. While not nearly as lovely as my MM wool yarn, I'm sure there will be something there that will appeal to you and your dearest dead kitty.
I would then think (or hope!) that after a time of mourning, you should seek the help you may need to recover from what has obviously effected you quite deeply on what many would think is a mentally unhealthy level.
All the best,
your MM yarn seller turned refunder due to pricing mistake
Ohhhhhhhh... don't go there
