Definitely the right choice to end it and re-list with the appropriate details.  Any chance you can message the bidders and let them know why/to look out for a re-list?  Maybe even PM them after the re-list with an apology, reason, and link to new auction?

Thanks, guys.  And yes, I will message the bidders and give them a heads-up.  I don't have the shell spreadsheet; what's the story there?

Set-up coming along nicely:

 

Two 3-light fixtures from Walmart: $19.99/ea

One (of two planned) clamp-on fixture: $5.99/ea

Seven (of eight planned) 100 watt equivalent 5000k bulbs $12 tot

4' Wide vinyl window blind: ~$17 at Home Depot

 

Set up with the blind brackets mounted to my book cases; completely removable in seconds and the light fixtures are non-intrusive.

 

I think it'll be as good as I want it to be once I get an extension cord to get that 8th light on the lower right hand side where you can still see the wrinkles in the vinyl.  And hopefully it settles a bit after being open and some weights hanging on it to remove some wrinkling.  

 

The only expensive bit is my new camera: Canon G16.  I think the set-up would work well for a cheaper camera as well though.

you can shoot white on white if you know your lighting

 

all you need is a background that is 1.5 to 2 stops brighter than your subject and even if the shirt is white and the background is white, the photo will still show both distinctly.

Thanks, I found the 'resolve a problem' button but all I see for options are:

 

  I sold an item and haven't received my payment yet.
 

I sold an item and want to cancel the transaction.

 

Do I have to have the 'easy return' thing enabled for this to work? I'm guessing I don't want to start a thing to cancel the transaction.


Im not sure what point you are at but here is how I do it. I tell the buyer to return it. When I get it back in the same condition I choose the second option "I sold an item and want to cancel the transaction.". That opens a case that asks the buyer if he agrees to cancel the transaction. He says yes. Done.

Well, I'm doing a partial refund so lets see how it works. Ebay asked me to tell the buyer to open a NAD case...

Oh, I see what you're saying. You get the item back, refund money through paypal, then ask the buyer to confirm case closed? Interesting. I guess I can try doing that as well. I'll get ebay fee's back once they agree to cancel the transaction right?

 

Edit: Well, the buyer just opened the case. There's no option for issuing a partial refund that makes them mail back the item. That sucks.

Back on the phone with Ebay. The person I spoke to gave me the wrong info...

You'll get back the fees once the transaction is canceled. Im not sure what exactly happened by you. Is this a return then why a partial refund. Also refunds are through paypal anyway if that's how he paid.

Those are the wrinkles in the window shade vinyl I mentioned.  I'm hoping they settle out and the additional light to be added at the bottom right corner will also help.

Ah duh, sorry, missed that in your post.  You'll have to take a pic of your whole setup, pics came out great from what appears a very low cost build.

Can anyone recommend a good, heavy duty steamer? I need to upgrade from this hand-held crap.

This guy made a book of shell model numbers. http://www.andresimha.com/style/Shell%20Model%20Numbers%20Sept%202013.pdf

I added it to iBooks on my iphone so I don't have to hunt it down.

The thread is http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?110401-A-Hunter-s-Guide-Shell-Model-Numbers

It is not complete. Wes always warns me to he's added some not in the main guide. But this is more than a good start.
