Woah, what are the odds.  I found this that suggests it's from the 20s to the 40s.

Seriously, that's the exact same fucking coat.  You had better be asking $400 for it like I am.

My guess is they were going to lengthen the sleeves but decided they didn't want the suit anymore. Pants were unhemmed too when I bought it but I hemmed them myself and got lazy on the sleeve and it's been sitting there since.

My only worry is people wouldn't buy it because it's not finished and people are lazy.

Don't get too many $1K+ suit sales (without ebay fees) :slayer:

Thanks,

 

I rebuilt the listing using the online editor instead of Garage sale and got the same result. So I started removing words from the title, and got the error with all combinations of the wording.

 

I ended up calling ebay and they told me it doesn't have to be in the title, and often are in the condition description.

 

It turned out I had some information about how I pack and ship in the condition detail (to explain that it will arrive with wrinkles) that ebay didn't like. I played around with it and it finally worked.

 

Here is where my disclaimer ended up:

 

"This item will ship, carefully folded and placed into a plastic bag to protect it when shipping. It is then shipped in a large mylar bag. When you receive it, it will likely have wrinkles. Hanging the shirt for several days will likely release many of the wrinkles."

 

What I had to take out was "First Class".  I probably knew that at some point but had forgotten that it was a policy violation.

 

oh well. only lost about 90 minutes.

+1 I noticed it after I sent it. I don't have an invoice template so write it out but now that you bring it up, good idea to have a template which I just made.

I immediately zoned in on that as well. OCD serves me well in certain aspects of this business. However, in others, it is a crippling hindrance.

In case anyone else is having some issues with the condition of Linda's stuff lately.  Got a "new with tags North Face" that was clearly used and not new with tags.  Got this message:

"

I am so sincerely sorry for the misrepresentation of this jacket--we're in the process of changing over to a different listing software, and this piece never should have been listed as new with tags. I will simply refund you fully today for the extreme inconvenience.


Hugs,
Carrie
