I agree. I'm not really a seller on eBay, but the few times I sell some personal items I hate seeing this out of principle.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)That sucks!Unfortunately for you this seller is in no hurry to sell and has reached her floor around $125. You've invested time following it for awhile now. $120 will get her to begrudgingly accept. Otherwise time to cut her loose!
Reading their mind: She scoffed at your initial offer of $100 because she were hoping/dreaming to get 2.5 x that amount. After 0 nibbles and multiple price drops she's come to realize no one wants to pay up; making it clear your initial offer wasn't as far off base as it seemed at the onset.
I would consider going back with another offer, but because she let the first offer expire and I followed up with the same offer, and then raised when she declined, I'm now out of offers.Quote:
I guess I didn't have the patience. This was first listed in March!Quote:Quote:
I thought hard about what to make as my first offer. Would it matter that when I contacted her back in April I didn't make an actual offer?It was after the first listing had ended and I inquired if she was going to relist. At that point I had indicated that I would be interested "around $100.".
With another four or five cycles without an offer, I thought long and hard about what to make as my opening offer. By starting at $90 I thought I was leaving myself some room to negotiate, anticipating a counteroffer from the seller ($90, $95, $100).
This is when the Make Offer process drives me nuts—I've made an offer, and I'm more than happy to continue negotiating, but by declining the offer (and outright ignoring the first offer) I have almost no more information on how far apart we are.
If it's posted at $129 OBO and $125 is the best price she's going to accept, not exactly a lot of haggle room, but so be it. Countering at $127 or something sinilar communicates that information to me.
In reality I don't need another suit. And I had $99 as my high water mark largely for marital communication reasons: my wife and I have a nominal threshold of $100 for purchases, anything above that we try to make a mutual decision. Staying under $100 means not having to answer the "why do you need a suit?" question.
Thanks for all of the replies. As I expected they were all informative.post #28099 of 305036/5/16 at 9:18pm
@masaccio It could also be that this seller just doesn't want to sell to you, in particular. They may have felt insulted by your initial suggestion of $100 then realized you were pretty much right, which in turn made them more resentful of you, so no matter what you offer, they may decline out of some misguided sense of principle. People are weird, man.post #28100 of 305036/6/16 at 7:17ampost #28101 of 305036/6/16 at 2:59pm

Also wow @ the lily pulitzer. and props for the tip on old footjoys/replacing the spikes.post #28102 of 305036/6/16 at 3:02pmpost #28103 of 305036/6/16 at 3:16pmpost #28104 of 305036/6/16 at 3:34pmQuote:
I agree. 38, maybe 37. Could be L given some OTR are suits are 29.5" BOC and 24.5-25" sleeve. Maybe label as "37-38 R/L"post #28105 of 305036/6/16 at 5:09pmpost #28106 of 305036/6/16 at 5:18pmQuote:
If you use a standard printer, just select "open the label window" which is highlighted just above the "Print Label" box. It will take you to another screen. On that screen select "Print Label." Your label will print in the normal size.post #28107 of 305036/6/16 at 5:37pmmight as well cross post this. Any way to tell if vicuna? (i know its black so that could be a bad sign)
Found this too. It is much softer than any cashmere i've felt and softer than a wool/vicuna overcoat i had.
Mint condition with a '49-'62 union tag.
e. de montagnac & fils did make 100% vicuna but sadly my tag is not labeled. I will pretend it is.post #28108 of 305036/6/16 at 6:11pmQuote:
Last time I printed a new label, I had to go thru all the refund steps. Would it be okay to just use this tiny label?post #28109 of 305036/6/16 at 6:29pmQuote:
You don't have to do all that. Just reprint the same label. But, I suppose that you can just use the mini-label. It should scan the same.post #28110 of 305036/6/16 at 6:42pm
