If anyone has ever COD-ed with the seller of this certain blogshop, you'd agree with me that she's quite a nutty person. I wouldnt call her a psycho, she's a nice and friendly girl, but quirky and somewhat weird.
I happen to buy a lot from her and hence we had a lot of dealings via COD. To top it off, she stays just 5 minutes away from me.
One day, she asked if I could meet at her place for COD instead of the Shell station we usually meet at because her car was not around. So I thought, why not, it's just 5 minutes away.
When I got to her place, she told me to 'come in'. It was a nice gesture, but unnecessary, really. But I complied anyways because she seems nice despite her quirky ways.
I went in and she showed me around (ive no idea why) and showed me all her new clothing stocks which were not posted onto her blog yet. She asked if I would like to purchase some on the spot, I am even allowed to try on. Obviously I was glad, like wow, I have the privileges of trying and buying firsthand. I picked out a few additional pieces which I liked, and paid her. (I even got super discounts)
Then she showed me a scrapbook of hers.
A burn book to be exact (remember Mean Girls, the movie?) Except that its not pink and have photos of people in it.
It's a whole collection of blogshops' printed logos and some of their photos in it.
At first I thought it was some sort of fashion lookbook but then, I saw some nasty things scribbled below some of them. For example:
- lousy photos with bad lighting
- ugly shoe collection
- quite a few hot sellers
- shouldn't show face, not pretty at all
Those were some of the things I happened to read, but they were all about different blogshops. That book was like over 200 pages thick, more or less about Twilight's Eclipse thickness.
If you're a seller, you're definitely in there, I promise you. It was like a whole blogshop directory, printed and pasted in one book.
She just flipped through the book as she showed me, telling me that this blogshop needs to improve her services and this needs that and so on. I just made an excuse saying I was late for something and dashed.
That was weird. I mean it's okay to keep tabs on your competitors, but not like a whole burn book about each and every one of them! That's crazy!
Although I'll still shop with her, Im never ever doing COD with her at her house again, no matter what privileges I get. :s
