Feeling a bit SCREW-ed

So I have contemplated writing this for a while now.. I just need to get it off of my chest..Because the picture above depicts how I feel about this situation...  A WELL KNOWN Blogger/Crafter was selling some of their supplies as they were moving.. Said person stated each box would have a retail value of $250 and were sold for $110.00 (includes shipping)  now that is ALOT of money to part with at one time for any person.. I gave in and purchased one of these random Grab Bag boxes GUARANTEED to have a value of $250 (this was in August).. The box arrived and it DID not have $250 value in it.. I photographed the box, emailed the seller of the box said person apologized stated someone else had packed the box and they would give me $75 credit to their store.. After numerous emails, checking on the credit I finally was able to get a response from the seller and seller stated send in your order.. Well I sent my order in several times it is NOW December and I frequently every couple of weeks email seller about the store credit which seller has just stated never given a code for or anything, emailed an order on 2 different occasions never received a response back from seller.

Now the thing is if and when I publish said sellers name I KNOW there will be backlash on me because of this persons standing in the Crafting Community, HOWEVER I HAVE ALL of the EMAILS I sent and all of the Correspondence the seller sent to me as well.. Nothing has been resolved and of course too much time has passed to issue a paypal complaint, which I should have done for the amount of store credit that was offered and then I would be done with this.. But alas, here I am, yes I received product not to the value of what was stated...

The original email sent, and I still have the contents of the box that I received untouched...  I have left sellers name out on purpose... (I was mistaken it should have been $250 in product value)

Im a bit disappointed in your grab bag box it arrived quickly I highly doubt though the contents of said box average out to 200-300$ worth of quality of product … only 4 of the stamps were not $1.00 bin stamps..
2 small paper punches 3 dies 3 stamping up pads (used) distress ink a roll of trim 2 small maya road packages (one of alphas one of flowers) and some tim holtz twine a roll of prima ribbon does not in my opinion
make a $200-300 Grab bag box.. i purchased from you because of your standing and popularity in the crafting community.. a little disappointed that is all

Sellers Response (again names removed)

 Omg, I just chatted with me xxxx and she filled that one! I'm going to give you a $75 credit at my online store. Would that be ok? I'm so sorry about that and I don't think she filled it like I did. xxx finished them that next morning because my train left early, I'm so so so sorry about this

  1. Wow & Yikes!! Heather I'm so sorry your having to go through this. And yes that is too much money to loss out on and not get what you paid for. I wish I know who it was I wouldn't order from them. This makes me so upset when these things happen. I pray you get your order soon. HUGS AND LOTS OF LOVE AJ-

  2. I am so sorry! I would be super angry. That is not right. I hope it gets taken care of
