The Many Other Lilith's Lair And Reviews

For months now I have been getting emails from clients, about other sellers with the same name as mine.  There seems to be other "Lilith's", one is called Lilith's Treasure, and one is a man.  I want to be very clear, they are not connected in any way with my store, called Lilith's Lair.  I have two shops one on artfire and one on bonanza.  If my picture is not in the shop banner, it is not me.   It has come to my attention that many on Creepy Hollows forums seem to be mixing us up.  Thinking I am one of the other Lilith's, or they are me.  Please be sure its me you are buying from, or posting about.  If my picture is not on the store, its someone else.  My banner is unique, and its the same on this blog, my website, my artfire and bonanza store.   

Now a little about the forum at Creepy Hollows.  I do not normally read or go to the forum, I have very little time and don't spend it reading forums.  But it has also come to my attention, that there is a section for clients to give reviews about sellers.  I was not even aware of this until recently.  If you have a question or concern, I am asking that you contact me directly.  I have spoken to Magnolia, and she thinks the forums are a good way for sellers and clients to work out problems.  In the review section of the forums on Creepy Hollows.   I cannot tell you how bad a idea I think that is.  I know its been there for a long time, but allowing clients and sellers to post and argue on a public forum of any kind is unprofessional.  Arguments about policies, what a seller or buyer did or did not do, is no way helpful to anyone on a open forum. 

 So this is one time I disagree, with Creepy Hollows.   What goes on between me and anyone I help is confidential, and I do not want to discuss things and "work things out" on a public forum.   It is my feeling this is not the place to discuss things about personal details of my clients, in the open so anyone can see it.  I am sorry to disagree with Magnolia, but, its just not right.   So, I do plan to monitor the form posts about me, in case there is something I don't know about.  If I don't know theres a problem I can't help you.  But I will not engage in postings with you on the forum, I will just encourage you to email me directly.  

So,  I would suggest anyone please contact me directly.  You can do that through my artfire website,by way of the contact seller button.  I normally answer all emails within 24 hours, but if you have not heard from me within 24 hours, please double check your email address, and send me another email.  Sometimes, something as simple as you typing in youremail@yahoo.   (con)  can cause a problem.  This has happened a lot in recent months, someone mistypes .com, and its .con so I try to reply and can't.   Also during the full moon each month I get hundreds of emails each day, and I do try to get to each and every one as fast as possible, but if I miss your email, or it gets caught in my junk folder, I may not know it for a few days, so please send another.  So, the moral is if you send me a email, and I do not reply to you within 24 hours please try again. 

Now about those reviews on Creepy Hollows, if you want to see my reviews, or feedback go to my artfire or bonanza store, there you will find reviews, from people I have helped.  The people that post on Creepy Hallows, may or may NOT be a buyer from my store.  Because they tend to mix up the stores with a similar or the same name as mine.  So, reading and even believing those reviews about me or any other seller on the Creepy Hollows forum, can be very misleading.   For one thing, unless a seller complains, and tells Magnolia that this poster was never even a customer of mine, it is not ever removed form the site.  Now, I am sure other casters at least most of them, do not monitor Creepy Hollows forums, and because they don't, they have no idea that people may have posted a good or even bad review.  

In other words, unless a seller is made aware of the reviews, anyone even if they never purchased anything from the seller, can post anything they want.   The only way it is ever changed is if the seller finds it, and reports it to Creepy Hollows.  So, its a free for all, and can be very misleading to you the client.  The good or bad reviews can be false, or they could be half of the story.  No one ever knows unless the seller finds it and monitors the site because Magnolia cannot monitor all the posts.  This is why i am asking you the client to read the reviews on my artfire and bonanza stores, do not rely on anything written on Creepy Hollows.  If you have any questions or concerns contact me through my artfire store.

Welcome to Lilith's Lair

I am Lilith, I was born different, just as my mother and grandmother before me. At a young age, I was seeing visits and studying the dark arts, and white magic, wicca I have developed my psychic powers and helped many with my readings. and have cast many spells. I have studied white magic and black magick for many years. It is my goal to help all who ask........ While many think the life of a reader to be mysterious and dark, that is not always true. The myths surrounding reader like myself, is very different. Our visions are sometimes a gift and sometimes a curse. My visions began as a very young child, it was years later before I knew exactly what they were. I come from a family of gifted women, my mother had this very same gift and so did my grandmother. The first vision I remember happened when I was about six years old. It was a look into the future of my very own grandmother. I saw her death, just hours before it really happened. At the time, I had no idea, why this was happening to me. But, over time I came to the conclusion that I would use my gifts to help others. I learned all I could, like a sponge soaking up everything I could. There are times, when I do a reading that I see very horrible things, things that I wished I didn't. I am sure all readers, have this happen to them, in fact it is something that is very common if you do a lot of readings. I have created this store, to help all who ask. That is the my purpose to share with all, the gifts I have received. All readings are sent by email within 48 hours of purchase. All spells are also cast within 48 hours of purchase. If you are not satisfied with your spell within 5 days I will be more than glad to recast for you free of charge. It is my goal to ensure you are completely happy with your purchase. Please email me before leaving feedback, if you have any questions or concerns I will glad to help you, to be sure you are happy. PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT SELL A SPELL THAT CAN TRANSFORM YOUR BODY INTO SOMETHING IT IS NOT, NOR MAKE YOU A SHAPESHIFTER.

USPS Beyond Broken

Just once I would like to be able to write about a good thing regarding USPS.   But today is not that day, in the past month, I have been reading hundreds of complaints online about the poor service from USPS.   So, it is time for me to share my story.  

Remember the days when you had a regular mailman?  Or when they picked up your mail, without filing complaints, or when they really delivered your mail?  To say the system is broken is a understatment.  It is beyond broken, there was a time when unions were needed, now they just allow lazy workers to do as they please.  My story is a fine example of the postal service, and just how unless it has become.

For a period of three months, my local post office has gotten worse.  I now call and tell them, I want to file my 2nd or third complaint each week.   I ship hundreds of items each week to customers, and use USPS.  In the begining, I did not set up pick ups, I just set my packages out on the porch, and the mail person would pick them up.  I order boxes from usps, and send everything priority mail.   Setting the boxes outside worked for a while, until the mail person, thought it was way to much work to pick them up, even thought they park 10 feet from by door. 

So, after many days that they were not picked up, I called my local post office and was told, "its not our job to pick up mail, unless you set up a pick up".  So, I began setting up pick ups each day, this worked ok for a few weeks, then the site would not let me set them up.  It was broken and did not work.  So, finally after a few weeks of trying I set up pick ups three months in advance.  One each day for three months.  

To say this did not work seems redundant now.  But it didn't and still is not.  Some days they do not even show up at all, some days, they come, leave one piece of mail, and take nothing.  Some days they show up two times, because they forgot to leave my mail?  And many times, I am expecting a package, and its not here, so last week this happened again, it about the 20th time this has happened.  So, I asked the mailman, do you have my package, online the tracking says its out for delivery, his response was unbelieveable,  The mailman told me, its not in his truck, it could be in someone elses, he went on to tell me, yesterday he had 6 packages, that did not belong on his truck.  So he drove around with them and they were delivered in a few days,by someone else.  So, not only can they not pick up mail, they cant even seem to deliver it.

 Each time there is a problem, I call and file yet another unless complaint.  After the complaint is filed, they are perfect for about two days, then its back to the same old same old again.  

Last week alone, two days they did not show up, and one the third day the mail person came scanned by box, it has a bar code on it, so they can prove they were here.  Left one piece of mail, and did not take any of the 15 packages I had for pick up.  The mail lady, went to the trouble of taking outgoing packages out of my box, and puting them on the porch with the larger boxes, scanning my box and then left.  I found her two streets over, and asked her why she did not take my boxes, she said, sorry I am lost?  

Lost?  She was so lost that she was at my porch, and did not see 15, twelve by twelve boxes right under my mailbox?   Each day there is a different carrier, and each time this happens I am assured by the supervior this will not happen again, but it does it always does. I have even written the govenor, to let him know about the situation.  Nothing chages, but today it will, I will be using ups, I am sure they want my money, just the same as USPS.

Ebay Removing Haunted Beads Jewelry And Dolls

As of yesterday, ebay began the removal of haunted psychic jewelry beads and dolls.  We all knew this was coming,  once the spells and readings were removed, the beads, jewelry and dolls would be next.  I have just begun to add the beads and dolls in my artfire studio.  I do hope to have them all back online by next week sometime.  





This is only one bead, I have about 6 online now, but will be adding more each day.  Please be sure to check often or if there is a haunted bead I dont have up yet, please contact me through my artfire stuido and I will be more than happy to get it listed for you.

Is there Anything Left On Ebay?

There has been many changes over the years to the online market ebay.  My parents once bought there, maybe yours did to?   I can remember a time, when anything you could ever want or need, could be bought on ebay and delivered to your front door.  My parents bought everything on ebay, frozen meat,cannned vegtables, coffee, coffee cream,clothes,shoes, household items really everything.


We had steak from Nebraska, sausage from New York, and clothing from California.  E books, recipes, halloween costumes, and every kind of electronics ever made.   Every day was like Christmas, new packages every day.  Whatever you could think of, you could get it on ebay.  


But what a difference a decade makes!  With everything that has been banned, prohibited or simply not allowed, many things will never be found again.  What began as one big flea market, has turned into a site, no one really knows anymore.   There was a time, not to long ago, when you never needed to leave home, just shop on ebay.


The growth of the site was unbelievable, below is a chart showing the growth of each catagory, for the years between 2008 and 2010.  The years before this, we also really good for growth of the site.  In the early days, there were so many sellers, that ebay could treat them as badly as they wanted, and 10 more sellers would take the place of one.

It was just a couple weeks ago, I learned the catagory I sold in would be eliminated, and everything I sell prohibited.  The banning of spells, readings, haunted items, will take effect the first week in September.  These items are only added to the growing list of things you cannot sell on ebay.  


So, my parents can't buy Steak from Nebraska anymore, or sausage from New York, or much of anything unless its clothing, shoes, or maybe some used panties for the pervert neighbor.   Or how about a dildo?  For grandma?  If you guessed you can not buy dildos, you would guess wrong.  Dildo's are allowed, and so are someones dirty underwear.   Or the face of jesus in a piece of toast?  yes thats just fine, list it and sell it.   And even some dirty socks for the person with the foot fetish. 


Now, this is where the story gets even better, when I was fist informed I could no longer sell spells, readings on ebay, the customer service rep, tells me the reason is that ebay wants to change its image!  This has to be a joke right?  He tells me, "we do not want to be a flea market anyone"  Really, then what is the new image, a porn shop for perverts? 


So, if you want to know how to make or do anything, its not allowed, not even grandma's cake recipe, but you can buy a pink dildo.   So, I can't sell you a spell or psychic reading on ebay after September 2012, but I can sell you someones dirty underwear for you pleasure.  


In the mist of the craziness, are the rules for top rated sellers, if you want to be a top rated seller, you have to accept refunds, and thats ok, because when someone returns the new panties they just bought, after they wore them, you can just resell them! 


And you must have a one day handling time, thats right, even if you live 30 miles from the closest ups drop off, it does not matter, 1 day.  


Forgive me for the tone of this post, but to me, it makes no sense whatsoever.   What kind of logic allows for the sale of dirty socks and underwear, and prohibits spells and readings?  Ebay is claiming, there is no way to verify if a spell was cast or not.  But, how does ebay know the underwear sold were really dirty, like the seller promised? 


Below is a list of banned and prohibited or restricted items on ebay.  You will notice "used clothing", this is a restricted item, because it has to be sold in the "adult section of ebay", thats right they have a special place for your dirty underwear, and its ok, no problem.


Some of the items on the list, are a no brainer, like drugs, wine, etc.  But some are just unbelievable.   And now you can add, spells, readings, psychic,haunted dolls, potions, most all of anything that deals with magic.  But you can still get a astrology reading, do figure? 


In five years I do wonder if anything will be left there you can really sell?
