I am done! buying on FSOT

I bought some Blueberry pockets off of FSOT and received them a few days ago. They were listed as VGUC and I believe they are definitely well loved condition. Both the inserts and fleece on the diapers are very worn and super thin. The fleece isn't even soft anymore and I don't think they will be absorbent at all. You can feel fabric balled up inside the inserts. I donít believe the price reflects what I got, and I donít think they would be worth over $10. I paid $13 ea. and feel ripped off.

The other person has a lot of posts and has clearly been cloth diapering long enough to know what is garbage. Her response when I contacted her was "I am so sorry that you feel these are in poor condition. ..." I am SO disappointed.

That's a bummer . I feel like many people will list anything as VGUC or GUC as long as it doesn't have a visible defect.

Re: I am done! buying on FSOT

That would be why i do not use ratings. i always just describe the condition in detail and anything that may be wrong with it like pilly fleece etc. other than EEUC i always second guess my assumptions on other ratings. that has happened to me before on FSOT though

Honestly mama, you haven't even used them. I can totally understand, but I think until you try them and see if they do or do not work, you can't really call them garbage, kwim? I would tell the mama you are going to wash them and try them and see if they work, if not, then you'd like to return them and get a refund. I hope it works out!

It's pretty accepted IME that once you wash and wear, there is no returning.

This suggestion seems reasonable.
