Ebay sellers, packing and history destruction
Sep 11th, 2008 at 1:07pm
On the WAGS member side of the forum, there has been a lot of talk/discussion about the way Ebay sellers don't listen to others in the shipping and packing of items.  The result is that the items are coming broken and the loss is tragic.  Now this is not the result of poor handling by the various shipping companies out there, but due to the poor packing of Cast Iron items by the sellers,  SELLERS that believe cast iron is steel and unbreakable.

Cast iron is VERY VERY fragile and breaks very easily.  Not only are collectors upset that their items have been destroyed but because, you can't go back and fix these items, you can
replace these items and more, if not most importantly, this destroys a piece of history FOREVER.

I know that many Ebay sellers read this FORUM, so please listen to the buyers, as we know what we are doing when we give you instructions on packing cast iron.  We know, as we have vast experience in shipping ourselves OR from the poor examples of receiving items shipped.

Please help preserve our national treasures, our national art, our history and our collections by packing well.
