Hi all. I'm Molli Vomit, aka Jade, aka Mallory T. I disappeared from the fandom for a while but now I'm back and selling art for the first time.

One customer, a Clifford Nelson (bonhomme on FurBuy) bought a picture from me off FurBuy once. He paid promptly and I had the picture in the mail within two days. He bids on a second auction, which I state in the description I will color either digitally or with Prismacolor Pencil if the price exceeds a certain amount. I recieve an email from him stating he wants it colored in markers. I reply that I do not own markers, but can gladly color it with either color pencil or I can simulate the look of markers by coloring it in SAI. This was two weeks ago, and I have yet to recieve any payment or further word from him.

My question is, does anybody know if two weeks is good enough time without contact before I re-list the auction? I've tried contacting him two or three times since then, as I have art piling up that needs to be colored/finished for customers who have already paid and I want to get this started ASAP, but no response at all.

Any advice?

Just wanted to give people a heads up. The USPS starting to do really underhanded things.

I don't understand any mail service not knocking on the door, but I can let that pass.

I cannot let pass the fact that despite signature conformation (I really wish I had screen caped the tracking page) a package was left outside on my porch in the rain. The signature conformation sticker no where to be found.

When I went to check the tracking it no longer said signature conformation. I believe the shipper when she says it WAS on there, because I saw it online before the change.

I was lucking she wrapped the petticoat (for my wedding dress) in plastic or it would have been ruined.

I've also had them shove a signature conformation inside the mailbox once, and it got bent up...but that's a different story.

It may just be the USPS in my area, but I thought I'd give out a warning.

Wrap EVERYTHING you send in plastic, and keep an eye on the tracking to make sure it stays signature conformation if that is how it is sent.

I've cross posted this to the Fursuit community, however I figured other artist would want to know this as well.

Sorry if this doesn't belong here.
