Relax. Monsterslayer is wonderful, and I've never had a bad experience with
them. Never heard of anyone else having a bad experience with them, either.
Their prices are great, and every item I've ordered from them is even nicer
than it appeared on the web site. Last time, I ordered their faux turquoise
beads, and the order taker person made a special point of letting me know
that "faux" means fake, and that the beads weren't as nice as real
turquoise. Actually, the beads looked great, and the price couldn't be
beat. Still, I appreciated their honesty.
At about the same time, I had ordered some faux turquoise beads from FMG.
These were worlds apart from the ones from Monsterslayer -- they look like
they were stamped from recycled dog toys. The kids liked them, but they
didn't think that these things looked like turquoise either, they thought I
had made them from Fimo.
Let us know when your stuff from Monsterslayer arrives. I bet you're going
to be thrilled. The only downsides from ordering online are that it isn't
instant gratification, and that such a ***y package represents so much
"If you're going through hell... keep going."
