Morigan, if by the negativity you refer to the thread Mark Charette posted, then it had nothing to do with her ability to select good clarinets. Personally after seeing that thread, which gave both sides of the story, I would prefer not to buy from such a person. I doubt she, or anyone else, has magical abilities to select clarinets better than someone else.
I am interested to know, how was your experience regarding ordering to overseas? I mean, from your post it sounds like you bought the clarinet for yourself, and asked her to send you several so you can try them and choose the one you want.
Also I'm interested to know, assuming you have stores in Australia with at least a reasonable selection (unless it is like here where we don't), at least bigger than the number of clarinets she shipped to you, why you chose this instead of trying the clarinets yourself in Australia? Unless my assumption is wrong.
Did you have to pay tax for all of them? If you did, will you get a refund for the tax on the ones you return? How does that work in Australia? Was the price total better than the price you would pay in Australia?
