Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1771

Can any Levi dudes help me out?

I saw a black leather pair of Levi trousers today. Assuming a biker thing? Anyway, they had a black Levi tag next to the back pocket. The hem was cut, presumably by the person who owned them to get their size. Is this something I should've bought? They were £10. Ebay completed listings are confusing me about sale prices. Thanks in advance.

A long time ago I used to get all bulled up and reply back and forth and waste my time. This is just a hobby for me, I don't need the money, so I treat it as a hobby. I don't respond to requests about color, sizing, or asking for different measurements. Life has been much easier since then.

This is part of why I'm going with mostly auctions. I set my starting price to the point where I'll make profit. Anything on top of that is bonus.

Then again, I don't have much storage space and need cash flow.

Not sure if USPS Package Intercept would work on an item being returned to sender internationally, but worth checking to see if it's eligible.

Real or fake?  Champagne series for Caviar sunglasses?  I'm thinking real because of the bifocal lens, but not sure:

Coming from a chemist, if the alcohol (I'm assuming you used isopropyl), didn't work, then its embedded in the rubber, and will unlikely come out.  The only way that might be possible is soaking it in alcohol to try and draw it out (or diffuse it so its not readable), but this may mess up the rubber of the sole.

 

If you're thinking of going the sandpaper route, one thing you should try before that is mechanics hand degreaser with pumice.  The Go-Jo Orange with pumice is what I would try.  It will also take the grease off the treads on the rest of the sole.  I use it to clean the white border on the bottom of Chuck Taylor All-Stars, and on shoes with red vibram soles like the ones typically found on bucks to make the edges look new.

Has anyone looked into ebay's requirement for a GTIN on new clothing items starting later this month? I just watched an ebay video which is at about a 4th grade level in which a dipshit showed how easy it is to find these numbers on a box for a piece of electronic gear. He didn't show me how to find it for a new custom made shirt though.

Here's a follow-up with some pics of a Vibram sole I used the Go-Jo with pumice on.

 

 

Did the "just the tip" on the shoe on the right.

 

Heel of shoe on top cleaned, bottom untouched.  

 

Also, I used a suede eraser on the suede of the clean shoe (thats also a very worthwhile $4 investment).  Sorry for the crappy indoor lighting.

Having zero familiarity with Caviar the brand or their products, much less their champagne series, I can quite confidently say that these are definitely legit. People don't have custom lenses made to fit their fake glasses. The detailing and hardware look to be good quality, numbers all make sense, correct labeling, and you make more money faking a pair of Wayfarers then choosing a limited run model of a far lesser known sunglass brand, not to mention that model having the entire arms and temples made entirely from metal and that metal having large designs in it. Doesn't make sense.

Playing around with the new lens.... not really sure why I bought it afterall lol. The detail is pretty cool though

For packages that are determined undeliverable and to be returned to sender internationally, are usually kept at the central sorting facility for up to two weeks. They don't just try once then automatically send it to another country. Go to your city or town's central processing center with a photo id and your address, say they have a package of yours that is set to be returned to an international sender. Provide them with your information, they locate the package, your good to go. If they only wait a week though, you have no options here but to let it get delivered again to that person and pay that person to send it back to you again, and hope they do. I'd also provide an address that the package can be left at.
