The timing of our posts is extremely weird and I don't know how I can explain that. I just came in now to see if anyone had responded to my message and am blown away by all the activity that's happened since!
I purchased spells from Tess via Etsy either early last year, or late the year before - I don't recall, but it was definitely ages ago. I have absolutely no reason or motivation to tell anything other than the truth about my dealing with metaphysical sellers.
I saw that she is on Bonanza now just the other day, when I was looking for something in particular and then I saw the stock photo that was used for my spell when I bought it on Etsy (being a wad of cash tied with a red bow), and when I looked further discovered it was Tess.
I posted my original comment about feeling like I'd been ripped off by Tess but then when I had a sudden surge of luck this past week - and I don't believe it was a coincidence - I felt the need to retract what I'd said and try to put things right (from my perspective), as that's the sort of person I am (in that I'll admit when I'm wrong).
In case anyone thinks I am, I must state that I am not Tess - in fact, if you look at our IP addresses you'll see that I've been posting from my same location which is a million miles away from (I'm guessing) most of you; plus, if you look at my other posts you'll see I've shared my experiences in dealing with other sellers, which I wouldn't do (to the extent I have) if I was a seller myself.
I still stand by what I think - in that spells must work for some people but not others. And up until last week I've never had a week - since consulting Tess - where I've won nothing. This week has been fantastic for me - I've won individual prizes of $2, $3, $2 (again) and $23 ... not a fortune, but I'm certainly very happy. I personally think she's the real deal (along with BluJay76, Moonstar7Spirits and KikiandPops, all of whom I can't rate high enough).

Sorry Hope, the forum won't let me edit my post above, so I'm re-posting.
I'm a real person and my login took minutes to be approved, not months. I don't believe at all that Hope is posting under multiple accounts - if she was, it'd be too easy to see her writing style duplicated over and over again, which it's not.
I honestly believe that some spell casters / metaphysical sellers' offerings will work for some people but not others. I'm sure there are people who don't rate my favourite sellers as highly as I do for whatever reason, and that's fine. I really like coming to this site to read about peoples' experiences, good and bad, and making my own mind up about whether I should take the risk and purchase from a seller. I don't think it's fair to make wild accusations ... and I'm not going to get involved in that. I'm just sharing my story in the hope that it might help someone(s).
