Cool Shoes, Paraphernalia & Desiderata - Part II - Page 663

post #9931 of 13727
I've had a few dealings with the seller shoes of distinction. He's bought a few pair of shoes from me for prices that I thought were more than the shoes were worth (based on my extensive eBay experience). He then doubled the price, but they are still unsold 2 months later.

He's based around ten miles from me, not that it's relevant. Must have more storage space than you can shake a shitty stick at. I've been told that it's a sideline for him (!) and, if that's indeed the case, there's possibly no imperative to shift stock at speed.

Just to show there's another side of the coin - I've sold items to Daniel (wowniceshirt) on a number of occasions - he's always given me a price I thought was fair. He's also a thoroughly nice guy - when he heard I was on holiday he sent me money for a round of drinks.

I'm always shocked by what ShoesofDistinction is asking for his stuff, but if he gets it... bully for him, I suppose.

I don't have a problem with his pricing strategy. It's baffling, but he can ask whatever he wants. However, he does egregiously misstate the manufacturer often. He seems to default to Edward Green, when a pair of shoes is made by a maker on the level of Alfred Sargent. Also, he doesn't respond to messages, regardless of whether its an inquiry to purchase or a note about the correct manufacturer. At those prices, you should get better service than ignoring people.

did he sell for more?

Since we're on about wowniceshirt, he is a member here and has PM'd some of the thrift thread regulars pretending to be buddy-buddy to get them to sell at cost or slightly above cost. It's perfectly fine for him to take advantage of auctions going for a bargain (he has on some of mine), but to do what I just said is mega-douche.

do you mean "distinctive"?
post #9941 of 13727
No, there is a guy called shoes of distinction on eBay, not to be confused with a fellow member here (distinctive shoe?)
