Holy cow I'm a bit slow sometimes. I bought the paint months and months ago. Just painted this weekend. :facepalm:

 

I have to move the lights around just a little to get rid of the shadows but this turned out much better than expected. Next to find a shiny piece of white plastic to make it an entirely white background, floor included. That should be ready in another 8 months or so...

Got the following from a seller, regarding this item: http://www.ebay.com/itm/172168952332?euid=e72fd86ba819492b8d34833823453f34&cp=1&exe=11473&ext=27979&sojTags=exe=exe,ext=ext

 Hi - I didn't want to select the "item wasn't as described" option directly on the ebay thing as I think it escalates something to them, so I just wanted to contact you first. The jacked I received isn't the one pictured in the listing, it's more of an orangey brown compared to traditional green/brown tweed as the one in the listing photos. Also the lining is not the same color which further makes me thing it's not the same jacket. Is it possible you have sent the wrong item, or are the photos just not representative of the jacket? I think I am going to have to send it back... Thanks,

 

I can't tell if he's trying to be reasonable or is being passive agressive to get what he wants.  It's the same jacket, as you might have guessed.  How solid is ebay on the 'color doesn't need to be exactly as shown' thing?  Will that save me here?  Maybe he even is aware of that and hoping I'm not?  I describe the jacket only as "Brown" with no mention of a green tint.  What do you guys think on this one? 

 

These give me an inordinate amount of stress and unhappiness..

 

Thanks in advance!

When I looked at your pictures, even between pictures my monitor does not show the same colors. I saw hints of green, but then brown, and lighter brown. For instance, the color of the lining looks different in the two pictures of the lining you had.

 

INAD doesn't carry the same weight it once did. You could offer a partial refund instead perhaps?

 

I rarely add color wording to my listings.

I'm hoping @capnwes will chime in, but I know he's busy and this is kind of his secret sauce. 

 

What can I do to bring back the heavily worn leather between the ripples here? I'm not concerned about the shiny parts. I am confident in bringing that back with a brush.

 

 

 

 

Is this where you finally use wax? Every guide out there says to keep anything other than brushing away from the shoes for 10-20 wears. These have obviously gone a long time without any help. Is it time to use wax? Should I use Saphir Reno to condition?

Chargeback attempt today for $110.  Buyer claims she did not authorize the purchase on 3/9/2016.

 

The actual evidence?

 

Payment was sent from her paypal ID, albeit under the name of a man known to be associated with her via her business (Google can be useful).

 

Item was sent to her business address of record, to her by name.

 

Positive feedback was received: thanks for the quick ship!

 

7 weeks later, ie, today, she claims didn't authorize it.  Maybe not, but then she'd better take whasshisname's access to her paypal account away.  I really hope they don't make me eat this.

If the transaction was eligible for paypal seller protection, and you upload everything related to the transaction (screen shots, documents etc re: the sale, proof of shipping and delivery, feedback etc), paypal will cover you.
If not eligible for paypal seller protection for some reason, you may end up eating it.

To me the coat looks very green in the pictures, but as always with different screens appearance can differ.

I would use Saphir if I had it. outside and inside the vamp of the shoe, and then I would put in an oversized shoe tree that would smooth it out and let it dry. then I would do one more coat of moisture with the trees in and let dry. then cream or wax, doesn't matter.

 

You won't get out the creases, but they will look better.

Hadn't thought of stretching the shoes. Will try that. Thanks jebarne!

I am also seeing a green coat on the first picture and green/brown on pictures 2-4.

This happened to me not long ago and paypal covered it since tracking showed it was delivered to the proper address.
You may need to call them, I don't remember if I had to.

Resolution: Buyer contacted me to confirm that the original card had been compromised. New payment issued with new card.  I can see the received payment, but my PayPal balance has not changed to reflect that, so apparently it's still on hold. I will have to call PayPal to try to resolve this.

Things that drive me nuts on Ebay, #1128...

 

 

If my listing specifies Priority Mail International as the only international option, why can someone in a country which Priority doesn't service buy the item? I took a chance and switched to First Class since it was a low cost item, but WTF?

 

 

And #1129...

 

Buyers who return things without opening a return or even contacting me. I had two such returns in my mailbox yesterday. Fortunately, I had enough room in my backpack to fit the boots that were returned. They were shipped back to me two weeks ago! Since I never got a notice, I hadn't checked my mail for a while. Then the buyer was having trouble understanding how to open a return. I had to talk her through it on the phone...

why don't you just shoot straight on? Most manequins can be raised on their central post as well, then you can get the carpet right out of the shot.
