Etiquette about buying used?

Recommended Posts

I bought some parasols from another bride on a different site. However, when I got them home and opened them up, I noticed that the majority of them had tears in the paper fabric or they had been "repaired" but the repairs were very noticable.

Now, these are my first parasols, so I don't know if they all are like that. I am now hesitant on using them for my wedding [they are coloured so I'm fearful the rips might be very noticable against the bright sand].

However, I don't want to send them back to her because she is a very nice person and I know that she bought them used too, so it might just be standard wear and tear.

Am I being too picky about this? Is it normal for the parasols to have rips and such in them?

 

**When I found the only one that didn't have a rip in it I turned around to show Francis and I promply punctured a whole through it with the corner of the kitchen table. Opps. Haha.... So I know they are fragile.

 

Thanks Ladies.

mine came from luna bazaar in completely perfect condition, zero holes, rips, tears. but they are very delicate paper, so i would assume that by time they had been toted around a couple times they could be quite thrashed. i dont think it was very nice to not disclose that info to you first tho sad.gif

That definitely should have been disclosed before you agreed to buy them from her.

 

I would contact her to ask iof she was aware of the tears, and let her know that you would not have bought them from her had you known, based on your concerns w/ the pictures.

 

I am giving away the extra parasols from my wedding ... but only the ones that were never used and are still in their original packaging. Hopefully you didn't pay too much for the used ones.

I agree with the others she should have told you the condition they were in. I would call her on it regardless of what you paid.

Well at the very least you could start the ball rolling but sending her an email simply saying that you received them and are noticing small tears in them and are unsure if you will be able to use them due to the damage. You can wait and see what she says.

Honestly, if she is as nice as she lets on she will refund your money or work something out. If she won't, can she really be considered "nice" if she sends you crappy stuff?

Good point.

I think $4/each sounds a bit steep for used parasols.

I am giving away my un-used ones for free b/c they were only like $10 for a dozen from Oriental Trading (I can't remember the exact price but it was a totally reasonable price).

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
