a couple weeks ago I came across an add posted online of some bottles for sale , mix of different stuff . only 1 item that jumped out at me , an unusual soda bottle from northern Ontario . sellers ad said they'd sell separately so I sent a message and didn't get a reply and had to send a second message to get a reply

there message only said " sorry I'd rather not send them thru the mail "

so I sent another message clearly saying I'd be willing to pay for shipping

but all I got as a reply was " no shipping only pick up or meet " and nothing since

but they live several hours away and with covid it wouldn't be possible to travel that far just to pickup 1 small 7 oz bottle , it make more sense to have it shipped

they also refuse to show me a picture of the entire bottle , I asked for a pic of the front but they won't send one , but pic of back was enough for me to id it and year it was used

so I have been unable to make a formal offer as I cannot verify the condition of the entire bottle

so left entirely frustrated with this one
Run away from this seller. Back in the early days of ebay some of the sellers were ripping off buyers left and right. Ebay has it's problems, but they did put an end to that. As a result the fraud scum has to to elsewhere, and that is where you found this.

I get the feeling this seller is more lazy and uninterested in shipping 1 bottle

they've never asked me for money and never even said what they wanted for the bottle

I found a diamond harlequin coke bottle acl a while back. Low price but never accepted any offers i threw at him. It was frustrating and I gave up on it. I don't play games. I remember now it was on that site offer-up.

That is the worst site for people posting but never responding back. I've given up on it pretty much.

Seems suspicious to post and add to sell online but refuses to ship. As long as there packed well they will be fine I’ve had probably 30 bottles shipped to me from all over North America and only ever had one get cracked and that was because there were 3 bottles in one box tell him use bubble wrap and newspaper and he bares no responsibility if you don’t mind he shouldn’t. The box should be twice the size of the bottle wrapped twice in bubble wrap placed in the middle with crumpled newspaper on each side.
