1 out of 5 stars

I've worked in customer service for over 20 years. From that, I've seen that there are two types of business owners: Those who are out for their bottom line and those who put the customer first. Someone special close to me fell in love with the look of this wallet so I decided to gift it to them for Christmas. When she was finally able to test it out, she put her cards and stuff in it once and realized they couldn't leave the home with it because it was too heavy for them considering they have a chronic illness that results in joint and muscle tenderness. Considering I work two jobs and sleep no more than two hours a day, I reached out to the seller ASAP to see what can be done. I was denied a refund or even an exchange for ridiculous reasons. Overall: TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Nothing satisfactory came from this purchase.

This buyer purchased on Dec 19, 2016 and asked for it to be delivered by Christmas, even though as stated in my shop announcement orders made after Dec 3rd were not guaranteed for Christmas delivery. At that point I offered the buyer a refund to which she did not accept. I created and shipped the wallet, it was delivered on Jan 3, 2017. I did not hear anything from this buyer until Feb 10, 2017, stating that her friend used the wallet and found that it was too heavy, could she get a refund or exchange the wallet. I informed the buyer that I could not accept her wallet back as it was well over a month since delivery and this was the first time I'd heard anything, and the wallet was now considered used and I cannot resell it in my shop. This made the buyer unhappy which she expressed in this review.

We started 2611Art in 2011 on a whim because of the response we received when wearing our gear out in public. We are inspired by everyday life, living, and experiencing. We believe in what we do, and love doing it!

    My passion is creating sustainable pieces of art that are used in everyday life. I am drawn to clean lines and unique textiles which I why I use cork in my creations. I am currently obsessed with kitty cats, unicorns, and slightly off-kilter humor.
