Anyone here have a good source for thick MOP shirt buttons in placket and collar sizes? Stuff like on Bonobos or BB shirts? Not extravagant like RT Carmel. I've checked eBay, but can't find what I want. I'd be happy to buy a couple hundred of each.

 

Thanks!

Does anyone know of a way to "freeze" your listings? I am going on vacation for 10 days. I should have planned a little better I know.

Thanks in advance!

 

P.S. Any problems with USPS priority mail international to Russia?

Print the label through PayPal.  No problems for me, others will chime in.  Also depends on the value of the item.

Vacation mode, I think that's available to everyone.  Otherwise you will have to end your listings or take the hit if something sells day 1 into your vacation.

A couple of hundred MOP buttons? Even average quality you are going to run ~$1.50 each new. I saw over at AAAC they had a group buy and got a decent price with free shipping but still insanely expensive.

You can probably pick up several hundred for 10 bucks in random sizes on eBay, but they are the thin ones with 2 holes instead of 4.

 

I would probably do Ali Express route

I'm starting to think you are right. The lowest price I saw was $.66 per, but that seemed to be an anomaly.

Thanks for the AliExpress tip. Going to go that way for the 11.5s. Just found a good deal on eBay for what look like some nice 9MMs

C, but they never seem to buy it. Maybe I should start wearing headphones...

Seriously though, I usually say that I'm shopping for myself or to trade with some guys on this bizarre Internet forum for people that are overly obsessed with clothing smile.gif

I choose between these two depending upon mood:
d) Ignore him.
or
e) "I have a lot of friends."

Last I checked, this was only an option for store subscribers. May have changed since then though.

This is correct, although one option is to shell out $20 and open a store for 1 month than close it after you return...

+1

 

Worth it if you have a bunch of items for sure. A few years ago, I ended all my listings for a week of vacation and really took a hit on business for the next several weeks.

 

Of course, vacation mode is only able to prevent BIN purchases if you want it to. Auctions will still run, so be sure to time them to end closer to your return date rather than your departure.

Got it. Thanks for the help fellas. I might just sign up for the store.
