Some people are just mean & do things to hurt others. I don't understand it either. Have you thought about posting on craigslist? Sure there may be other people out there who do that too, but if you have really good pics, you never know--one person can buy from you, tell another about your awesome bows & then you may get a whole bunch of new people as clients.
That's pretty lame that the other lady was complaining about you, since she doesn't even sell bows!!! Some people are just MEAN just like you said. Sorry to hear about your car, too!! That sure stinks!! <<hugs>> Hope that your week goes better.
