Elizabeth, I understand what you mean about the principle of the 
thing.  The piece that I mentioned which came to me broken was only 
$5.  Actually, it was 4 McCoy planters in one "lot/box" for $20.00.  The 
seller did a poor packing job.  All of them being in one box wasn't really 
the problem because she put packing material between each one - on the 
inside, that is.  The problem was that she "packed" one of them right next 
to the edge/side of the box with nothing between it and the box itself.  It 
arrived damaged, of course ... broken "clean in two," as they say.  As I 
said, I paid the extra for the insurance, so when I found out that she 
didn't buy the insurance for me, I didn't appreciate it.

There's more to this whole story than I've told here, like ... how long it 
took me to get her to respond --- then, how many times we emailed each 
other  --- her accusing me of "being mixed up with another seller" --- then 
of being a liar to "get it for $5.00 cheaper" --- then me finally proving 
it by borrowing a digital camera (before I had one of my own) and emailing 
pictures to her, etc., etc., etc.  *SIGH*  ..... a very, very frustrating 
thing to have happen over $5.00.  But as you say, Elizabeth, the money's 
not the real issue.
