You could do GSP with it, but not Priority International. For that, you need the 3 printed out sheets that need to be in the little clear envelope.

WHY are all of the Loheads such cheap asses? seriously, I almost hate picking up rare RL stuff because dealing with them is so annoying. Between lowballing, millions of messages asking if I'll go lower, millions of other messages telling me why it's not worth what I have it listed for, the messages being illiterate, scamming, etc.

I have similar issues when I sell Patagonia. I just sold a Patagonia cashmere sweater with a very very tiny light stain on the sleeve. (about 1/4 of a pencil eraser) Started the auction at $14.99 + shipping. I got 5 or more messages throughout the week telling me my asking price was absurd for a stained sweater. One guy said "As you are aware, the bleached spot on this otherwise beautiful sweater deems it as virtually worthless. I can offer no more than $10 shipped. You are able to send an offer and invoice directly through the message system now so no need to relist it with a buy it now option. I'll expect the invoice shortly."

LOL. I wouldnt but a sweater with a bleach spot either. Also Patagonia sweaters don't sell for what you'd think they would.

For the $5 I spent on this, would buy again.

Exactly... For the quality of their stuff, and how some fleeces resell, you'd think a cashmere sweater would for for considerably more than that. Different market though. The average Patagoniac isn't into cashmere.

The first Patagonia I ever saw was a bright multi colored snap t and I remember thinking to myself "wow what an ugly piece of shit" and I left it. Just one of my hard learned thrifting lessons

The Polo thing is a combination of a couple factors.

 

First you have older guys that have been collecting for awhile. They are hurt that the sweaters they used to buy for $100 now go for multiple times that. A lot of them like to prove how OG they are by trying to school you with their knowledge about items, pricing, etc.

 

Then there are the younger guys, which the older guys generally hate because they help drive up the prices. The younger dudes usually come from the sneaker head scene where low-balling is commonplace. They want the vintage Polo too so they can dress like an extra from the Wu-Tang C.R.E.A.M video, which they probably weren't even born yet when it came out. 

 

People get so caught up in the scene that it is easy to forget it is just clothing.

Two giant thumbs up to that. Laser for international express, label printer for everything else.  Can't imagine having to deal with ink, ever. 

+1 - Exactly what I have setup. Dymo 450 is amazing. No clue how I lived without it. I said the same thing about shooting with flashes vs hotlights. You don't know how good something is until you switch. Would never go back.

PRL Corneliani tweed sport coats sell faster than anything else I list. They always seem to go within 48 hours.

Sold a Brooks Brothers tie on Sunday, seller paid today and I shipped it out this afternoon. Since shipping, I've received 4 messages from the buyer either questioning the authenticity of the tie, or telling me not to ship if it's fake.

Damn.  I have passed up a million Patagonia.  I thought they were one of those things that were a little pricey when new but didn't sell for crap on ebay.  

 

Of course, I only recently learned that North Face can make real money on ebay, too!

What a tool.  Does anyone even fake Brooks Brothers ties?   This sounds like the very definition of Buyer's Remorse.

Doesn't that just piss you off when someone sends a message just to tell you the price is too high?   And they are always asses about it.  I have gotten a few of those before.  I have seen TONS of listings in which I thought the price was insane.  But, who has the time to email someone to complain about how high an ebay item is?  If its too high, then don't buy!
