Advice: Being ignored

A few days into January I asked someone about trading a pre-designed fursuit partial in exchange for a resin base. The persons agreed and at that point, before anything was sent out, I asked if it would be okay to have them buy me more supplies to make the trade equal (as the partial is worth $800 and it was brand new). They agreed to it, I made a list of things I'd like and they agreed to that as well. They said they'd ship their half that following Saturday and I agreed to do the same.

Saturday comes, I ship out my half and give them the tracking number. No response, messages aren't seen. I get a message from them on Tuesday that my half has arrived and they're more than happy with it. That's great, but I haven't received my half so I asked if they shipped it out too. They say they haven't had the time so they would run to the post office.

I receive no messages but the base arrives in the mail, to my dismay it's cracked but at least I received it. I tell them I got it but it was broken and ask when they'll buy the supplies. They give me the same response as they did when the trade first initiated, which sums up to "I'm not paid much but I'll buy it this weekend on Friday or Saturday."

The last time I asked, with my messages not looked at, was January 26th. I haven't heard back from them and they appear to be somewhat active.

Should I wait a little longer or send another message, maybe cut off ties with them and take my loss? Is maybe an A_B post needed?

Thanks much.
