Man, y'all should move to Minneapolis. I can't even think of a neighborhood in town I feel like I'd need a gun to walk around, let alone an area like that with a thrift store.

I don't feel the need to carry in my stores, but some are in very sketchy parts of town that I would definately not want to be in alone at night.

With all due respect, Yorker, I carry quite a bit of cash when I am hitting local yard sales and estate sales. I have a close thrifting friend whose wife was mugged while she was just leaving a thrift store to retrieve a coupon from their vehicle. They only stole her purse and fled the scene. Have I been attacked/mugged? No... I am a nice guy who is not prone to anger. It takes quite a bit to provoke any aggressive action from me. That being said, if someone has the balls to fuck with my wife or child, may God have mercy on their soul.

 

Now, enough with this non-thrifting banter. I asked a question and it was answered to my satisfaction. Please... more eBay talk! I have to re-acquire my witty edge.

Seriously, what kind of piece of shit sends you an irate message bitching that you didn't respond to their message sent literally 1 minute earlier.

post #29766 of 30456

the kind you ignore and block?

post #29767 of 30456

He's a buyer who wants to return an item (which I auto accepted), so I can't block now, but surely will after this is over.

Guys, any thoughts on this:

I bought something a couple of months ago from China and it still hasn't arrived. Tracking shows it landed it my country (Canada) a while back but no trace since. Seller used DHL ecommerce (which is slightly different from main DHL service, it seems). I called them and they told me they track packages only until they arrive in destination country, then they are handed over to local carrier. So, I called Canada Post but they do not recognize any of the tracking numbers DHL ecommrce uses, so they are blind. Neither one has a way to track a package which now has been, apparently, in this country for weeks...but where!?

Any suggestions for next steps (I'd rather find the package than try for refund, etc at this stage)?

Thanks in advance.

I use a Olympus e-510 that was bought new when I was in highschool. I still use the lens it came with (those lenses are often called 'kit' lenses). The body/lens combo runs for like ~90 on ebay now. I do wish I had a Nikon, but that's probably branding as I can't point to things I know a Nikon would do that my Olympus can't. I'm getting into better lighting setups now, and my Olympus should be able to work with strobes just fine (and that seems to be standerd with digital SLRs). Another starter SLR that I know of would be the Canon EOS rebel series. You can get older digital ones for cheap.

 

The main thing imo is that you have control over the aperture (F stop), shutter speed, and EV compensation. I would think any digital SLR (and many point and shoot, though definitely not all) will give you that control. I wouldn't pay much attention to megapixels. That matters if you're cropping the photo heavily, or printing out the image to like an 8x10 or larger. For example, my e510 is 8 or 10MP is fine and I would still feel comfortable at 5-6MP for ebay work.

Perfect, thanks.

Yeah but I think there is still a big difference between not being alone and carrying...

I would say fish, maybe tilapia, but not 100% sure.

post #29774 of 30456
They do use Salmon skin as an exotic sometimes (seriously)
post #29775 of 30456

My reply was definitely serious, there are lots of different fish species from which you can get leather ;).

Although they are not so often used in shoemaking because of their (relative) weakness
