I was wondering, does the tone of the transaction ever affect your enjoyment of your pins? So I'm not talking about bad sellers or scammers, just when something is a little off and you feel kind of weird, but the trade or sale goes through safely. If the seller was snobby or the trader was a little cold, do you think of that when you see your pin, or LE doll, or other knick knack? It happened to me once with a 2011 Designer Aurora doll. The eBay seller didn't give tracking, so when the doll didn't come some time after the estimated date I used eBay's "where's my item?" feature. The seller sent me a nasty message, "Why didn't you just message me I need that money for rent and now PayPal put a hold on me!" While, I used that feature because it was what was listed under the "contact seller" button... and using eBay myself for years I have never had a hold put on my account even when USPS lost an item and the buyer was super angry (I got them the insurance $ and refunded them, but it took some time). So it makes me think this seller had issues before. After that she miraculously had a tracking number to send me that showed the doll was delayed. If it had just been uploaded in the first place I could have kept an eye on the shipping myself and never had to bother her. All that being said, I eventually sold the doll. It just reminded me how upset the seller was and how mortified I was that sending the wrong type of message through eBay could freeze someone's PayPal funds. For pins, I've mostly had good transactions, but I was wondering if the same type of thing happened if I would keep the pin, and it made me wonder what other collectors think.
