I am trading with another member whose user name is Lazlo. He doesn't have what any seedlings for what I wanted to trade for right now. So, he promised to take care of me come spring. He also encouraged me to come here and ask about him. So, should I have trusted him? You tell me (if you've had dealings with him).

I was hesitant because I was just burned by a seemingly nice lady named Shelly aka "Shellynona." She quit communicating. I really thought she was going to send her agreed items, but never did. That's the first bad experience I've had trading on DG. I was going to leave some appropriate feedback for her, but have been waiting. How long do you give someone the benefit of the doubt before giving up? Her last communication was on 10/12/12.

Erin,

You can't go wrong with trading with Lazlo. He is a real gentlemen, and his trades are very generous...

Lazlo is AWESOME! I am new on DG and still learning how it works, No have/want list even posted and yet he was kind enough to send me alot of seeds, took the time to answer my newbie questions & made my 1st DG experience great. Seems to be a kind-hearted man of his word and any dealings with him will always have a positive outcome. ~Julia~

agreed. Lazlo is very friendly and a great dg trader!

Sorry you had a bad experience...is this person a dg subscriber?

Well, thanks everyone for the positive feedback for Lazlo. I guess now I can relax about that trade. He only wanted one variety of seeds I had. So, it wasn't much to lose if that were the case.

About the other trader, I don't know how to tell if she's subscriber or not. Perhaps that's the problem. She has no feedback.

She's not in the DG address exchange, so I don't think she is a subscriber - just a member.

I would also like to add my 2 cents here...if you could have the perfect trade partner, Lazlo would be on the top of the list (along with a few that have posted here (grin) ). I have had some bad experiences and I am sure others here have too but there are so many wonderful honest members on DG, they out weigh the bad. If Lazlo says he will take care of you in the Spring he will and you won't be sorry :)

I am not familiar with the other person you listed.

I'm not familiar with Shellynona either, but they are a member, not a paid subscriber. If he or she were a subscriber, there would be an ending date beneath the one he/she joined: http://davesgarden.com/members/Shellynona/

Well said about Lazlo, Connie!

I agree that Lazlo is generous. I know he's given me lots more than he ever wanted back.

What were you looking for, from him? I have a wide variety of Asian greens Like Bok Choy and Chinese cabbage, plus a few other crops and flowers.

I don't know what's going on in his life, but I'm quick to assume about anyone that "stuff happens".
Maybe needs a reminder?

Lazlo is super and always generous with trades--has been for years around here:) I don't doubt for a minute that he directed you to ask about him--he's a well liked fixture in the seed trading forum and DG and probably knew we'd all chime in to help reassure a new DGer. Trades seem too good to be true at times and you just have to take that leap of faith. I was burned on my first trade here but it has been smooth sailing since which I dearly appreciate.

Wish you many more successful swaps here in the future:)

There is only one Lazlo on DG, as far as I know. The person you had trouble with was newly registered. They probably got what they wanted and left. You may want to contact Admin. so they are aware of the issue and this person doesn't sign up under another name. I've never traded with Lazlo but I know many that have and they all have had a great experience.

They should get a notification by email If they don't answer the dmail BUT it doesn't always work. He offers trades all the time and from what I can tell he always comes thru.

You may try dmailing him again it may have got lost in cyberspace.

Oh Rick, I am so sad to tell you that Charlie Mallios, the owner, died, his son & DIL ran it for a few years, then sold it to a 3rd party who eventually closed it because business was bad and it now sits unoccupied, waiting for someone to buy it. Best food in Carlisle for many years. It was called the Sunnyside Diner, then Charlie remodeled it into a fancy restaurant.

>> Best food in Carlisle for many years. It was called the Sunnyside Diner, then Charlie remodeled it into a fancy restaurant.

Sigh! Best food anywhwere, I think! I alwyas wnated to make a pilgrimage back there to try more of the craqb casseroles.

My company did several projects for NAPA/Echlin. Our negin eers and engineers from another NAPA/Echlin divison were in Carlisle to do some work for that Enchlin division.

My company had a rule that we could entertain people from other companies by buying them DINNER on the expense account - but we could not put DRINKS on our expense account.

The NAPA en igineers were allowed to liquor us up on thier expense account, but NOT buy us food.

We were engineers and had our slidfe rules with us, so we figured it out.

We took THEM out to DINNER at the Sunnyside Diner, and they put the booze on THEIR tab. A fine time was had by all, but the price of spark plugs may have gone up 1/10th of a cent that year. Hopefully qall the money we saved them on ink jet printing, barcoding and inventory control made up for it.
