Local trade

A mama wants to purchase some diapers I posted, but turns out she's local so she wants to save shipping and meet. I said that was okay

We talked ona Tuesday and she said she couldn't meet until the weekend. Weekend comes and she tells me she's busy for her husbands birthday but might be able to meet - I said not to worry bc I came down w a cold. Now it's a week later and I try to arrange meeting and she says she has to run errands. She's known what city I'm in and I find out she's in the next city over (so 15mins maybe). I'm annoyed.

I want to be respectful that I said I'd do the sale but next weekend I'm booked.

How long do I wait?

I don't mess around with crap like that. Either pick a time and stick to it or don't waste my time. One change is okay since i understand things come up. I wouldn't wait any longer. that is crazy. If she really wants them she should make the time. I would offer to ship and if she says no then move on.

I agree, you've given her enough time, I'd offer 1 more time to meet, then ask if she'd like to ship, then move on. I would not be saving them for her anymore.

I'd email her a day you can meet and tell her if she still wants to trade, you guys need to make the trade that day. If she doesn't, you need to go ahead and try to trade them or sell them.

Re: Local trade

id offer once more to meet up and if she still has some excuse id move on. I wont hold things for people anymore (local or not) Youre time is worth more than that, if she really wanted the stuff i think she would have made time to come meet you

Re: Local trade

Tell her that you are going to go ahead and relist your items. You gave enough time. Don't sweat it.
