Provenance.

Not

Providence?

wink

She has iver 400 active listings. Most with the assertion that the stuff is gen.u.ine as she knows the providence.

Ooh.

Just looked up providence: an influence which is not human in origin and is thought to control whether or not people receive the things which they need

Maybe she's getting her information from God.

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 11-Nov-12 02:56:32

Yup, perhaps the Trinity is advising her on how many Juicy Couture panties to buy and reseel.

(Disclaimer: I was searching Orla Kiely scatves.)

PROVENANCE

You are definitely correct Chaos

Providence is something different entirely.

Maybe she should try lokking in a dictionary, Chaos wink

cozietoesie Sun 11-Nov-12 08:31:13

Drop her a subtle ASQ, Chaos, mentioning the word 'provenance' (spelled correctly.) Maybe she'll take the hint.

smile

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 11-Nov-12 21:09:10

I think I might just go for a simple "ahem".

wink

Tee2072 Sun 11-Nov-12 21:11:52

Oh the irony...

grin

lovelyladuree Sun 11-Nov-12 21:15:07

She might be grateful for the advice. Or tell you to feck off. YANBU

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 11-Nov-12 21:36:13

What, Tee?

<<purseslips>>

Tee2072 Mon 12-Nov-12 06:10:01

ChaosTrulyReigns Mon 12-Nov-12 07:21:50

Bah.

Tee2072 Mon 12-Nov-12 07:26:40

But, yes, I would have to say something to the seller!
