I got so screwed by this woman. I wanted this dress so badly on ebay, and would have paid a lot for it, but somehow this woman wound up with it. I don't remember the specifics but I had spoken with the auction seller and she was going to sell it to me direct, something went wrong and this woman wound up with it. I begged her for the dress, I told her it was for the designer's family, that all we were going to do was photograph it, put it in a show and then donate it to a museum. I offered her triple what she paid for it, a pretty speedy profit, but she said no. She told me she was going to wear it to her wedding and just couldn't part with it. She was so mean and selfish about the whole thing.
Now today, someone has kindly written to me to tell me that they saw this dress for sale on a website. The woman wants over a thousand dollars for it! I can't possibly afford that. What's worse she makes mention of me as if I was helpful to her in supplying her with information about my grandmother. I'm so pissed, what a monster. I just don't understand how some people can be so greedy and cruel.
