Re: Washer and dryers

The new washing machines come with all these presets for different types of wash loads and determine by sensor how much water your load needs. I will never again buy one of these. I cannot manually set my water temp or the amount of water I want to use. the predetermined settings do it all for you. Sounds great and works well most of the time but there are times I want to control the water temp and water levels. Continue Reading

You need to dispute the charge with the Credit card issuer not the website where the purchase took place. the credit card issuer will issue a temporary credit to the card while they investigate the problem. GO to,the website for the card issuer and there will be instructions there about how to fill out the dispute form. Continue Reading

 

Re: Interesting-Q brands my consignment shop will not accept

In Fashion Talk 1432485171.93

there are certain items I do not take in to consign because no matter what the label they just do not stand up to heavy use and still look good enough to sell. For example my Pima cotton Talbot's Tees while nice quality cotton are worn often and after a couple of years of wearing and washing on a regular basis they just are not in good enough shape for someone to want to buy them. Things like that I take directly to the thrift shop that supports our local hospice assuming they have no stains or tears. Continue Reading

KathyPet, how much do you typically get for your Dooney's ? I have a few older AWL bags I don't use anymore, they are in excellent condition and I could use the c... Continue Reading

In the past Inhave had some bad experiences with consignment shops. One time a shop closed their doors with no notice and I never got any money I had coming or my items returned. With another shop several of my more expensive items just disappeared. The shop I consign with now Imhave used for 6 years. They know me and the type of items I bring to them. I fill out the consignment forms ahead of time all items listed. As many clothing items as possible are on hangers washed or dry cleaned. Anything with stains or spots doesn't go. I just drop my things with the them and I leave. if there is any... Continue Reading

I have not donated something I wanted back but I,have taken things into the consignment store I use and then changed my mind about consigning them. I called and they were still there so they let me reclaim them. Continue Reading
