Today I’m showing off the Kraken Lite in the Glorious Depth color by @dwarf.factory
This post is going to be a bit different though . . .
When The Kraken originally debuted I had to have one! I’d been following along with Dwarf Factory’s water themed caps (The Anura 2.0, The Happy Hippo, The Lighthouse) and even though the color didn’t quite match with the aesthetic of the other artisans I’d purchased, I bought the Deep Ocean version just the same.
When the Kraken Lite launched and I saw the Glorious Depth “skin” I knew this was the one, so I told myself if I could sell my Deep Ocean variant I could justify buying the new one.
After a brief search I found a buyer and following an exchange of photos and chatting about its condition we proceeded with the sale.
Unfortunately . . . immediately after receiving the cap the buyer initiated a claim with PayPal, first claiming the box arrived completely empty and after disputing that they changed their claim stating the key showed up damaged or defective.
Despite meeting all of PayPal’s requirements for their “seller protection,” a month later after providing photos, receipts, chat logs, etc. PayPal sided with the buyer.
Even after appealing their decision PayPal never did explain to me any actual reasoning behind the “defective or damaged” claim.
I think what I enjoy most in this community is learning about the process. Watching build streams; the soldering process is kind of therapeutically mesmerizing. Seeing an artisan hand paint each individual cap has driven me to new senses of appreciation. Chatting with a creator as to how their printing process works vs. resin casting . . . it’s all quite amazing!!!
Don’t let the bad eggs spoil the things you appreciate and are delighted by in life. Shit happens. I can’t take back this transaction, but I can lift my head back up and continue the conversations with the ones who bring that spark of light to the table, or in this case my computer desk.
Thank you to every artisan, builder and crafter out there for sharing your passion with the world!
