Fucking swish!

I know nothing of this, but could you have your writing transferred to electronic form for a company to use it for clients? I feel like I need to buy something from you to discover this magical handwriting. I am especially interested, because mine is polar opposite of yours.

I'm not a huge eBay seller, but I've done 500+ sales. This guy is hands down the biggest pain in the ass I've ever dealt with.

Is this worth listing with the fade issues? This is another item I bought way back in the new days... The resale seems pretty good. I can't seem to find a ton of info on the brand.

 

The texture of the fabric is almost like a thick heavy fleece, and it is 100% Wool. Unfortunately the back is a bit faded.

 

Does dying a wool jacket work?

 

Also, I never can get my "dark" pictures to look just right. If I make the pictures too dark the detail can't be seen. If I make them too light then it looks like the jacket isn't a dark black color.

 

Has anyone found a good happy medium to brightly lit clothes vs brightly lit clothes that still look black?

 

 

 

FADE! :fu:

 

 

 

 

Thanks all!

Anyone know if the original APC "Cure" model is worth more because its discontinued? picked up two NWT pairs.

I doubt you'll fetch a premium for them, the Cure wasn't an original cut from APC, introduced, then changed and renamed, and they are also not selvedge if I remember correctly, which I think may hurt your cause for a premium rate as well.

Trying to ship priority to Czech republic, but for some reason the print your shipping label function only allows first class mail. Anyone here experienced this?

Try the USPS website. Some countires (Russia) you have to actually buy the postage at the post office even.

FWIW, lately when printing a label from the PP payment instead of the eBay shipping service, its let me ship express (aka signature) to every single country, even those that eBay prohibits. I did express to Russia the other day and was like WTF

I shipped a Priority package to Russia today via eBay. I wonder what's different on your end. Could have been a temporary glitch.

Oh how I love to drop the new Thursday auction listing and wait for the onslaught of "I'll give you $XXX(some number lower than the starting price) if you sell me this item right now. My price includes shipping. I can pay immediately." messages.:censored:

The lower price always cracks me up. I also love when people say "I will pay with PayPal!"

I respond with "I only accept conch shells for payment."

I had one of those recently who followed up with, "I eagerly await your invoice," after he sent me a ridiculously low offer.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but how are people doing with the new ebay 'product identifier' requirement?

 

From today's ebay email:

 

We're writing to let you know that as of January 7th, at least 50 of your listings are missing product identifiers—which will be required to list or relist in a number of additional categories starting the week of February 29. To make sure you're ready, add these identifiers to your listings now, before the requirement takes effect

As a reminder, product identifiers will be required on all new and Good 'Til Cancelled listings of new and manufacturer-refurbished items in certain categories. Note that this requirement applies to both single and multi-SKU items.

 

In the Clothing & Accessories category, ebay says only shoes are affected, but already I can't bring to auction one new blazer.

 

Many new items we have will lack a UPS or GTIN or other required identifier.


What are y'all doing?
