Be very careful using that spreadsheet. There have been at least two or three incorrect AE numbers on that one. Brianpore and I have both been burned. The best bet is to search the back issues of the AE catalogs on issuu.com.

I do have a revised version of the shell list that I have been using and updating for about 18 months. I have deleted the incorrect numbers and have also added some that were missing. When I get home I will post it again.

Thank You Cap!!!

1. I think so, but hard to tell for sure. That's not a standard color for AE shell, but they could be faded burgundy or special ordered. 80% sure yes they are shell. Do they have a dovetail heel?

2. You mean the color oxblood, right? Then yeah, I guess so - don't think there's a technical definition fo the color.

Yes, that was my clue.

 

Thank You Orgetorix!!!

 

 

Now i have to polish and list them. uhoh.gif

Or he could just use the address I sent him to find me.

 

I think he just missed my last email and didn't realize I had authorized the return.

Hmmm... maybe you should just ship it to him first so he can inspect it before paying. Probably help speed things along.

Giddy like a schoolgirl to finally upgrade from my 2005 Razr to a proper smart phone (Samsung Galaxy S4 Active) - now I can hit up eBay completed / Google when I have a  [shirt/coat/jeans/etc] in my hand at the thrift store and am wondering to myself "Is this a something, or a nothing?"  Probably save me $30 - $40 per month in regrettable purchases and pay for itself over time.

 

Do folks here do a lot of web searches when in the field, or just go with what you know and leave the questionable stuff behind?

Re: all this talk. Let's give these guys some possible benefit of the doubt. When I list more than usual, I start making stupid mistakes. Recall that I'm a normal person so I don't not cool enough to own a Mac, so my method is taking a previous listing for a similar item and then modfiying it. I have on occasion genuinely forgotten to change "NWOT" or "NWT" to "Pre-owned." Mostly this was before there was the text box for describing condition, but still. It happens to me ALL the time with sizing. I skip right to uploading pictures, get distracted, then go to the description and totally forget to fill out all that info in between. I've even forgotten to change the title. So it's possible the seller is a DB, but it's also possible it was an honest mistake. But if you got your money back, who cares?

I too have a new phone. Don't love all of it, but the Ebay app is MUCH more robust than blackberry. (And no, I don't have a freaking iPhone).

Two items from me today:
1. Still desperately seeking your ruinable, piss-stained gray trousers. Keep saving them up, boys. This is what makes SCIENCE so exciting!

2. Has anyone noticed the bottom fall out of the skeet blanket market? Four skeets, listed at $49.99, no bids, have had to relist. Beginning to sweat because I bought these at consignment.

Skeet blanket - is that like Robert Graham / Etro etc shirts?  If so, some drop in interest - sold one 4XL Robert Graham at BIN after listing it a few times and dropping it a bit each time; Etro I have had to relist, and so far zero interest in a NWT Robert Graham I listed...

I'm posting this link here to an article about a documentary I'm watching about a photographer whose body of work was discovered after her death.

Anyone in Chicago heard of Vivian Maier? I'd never heard of her but I'm sure it was in all the papers.

Negatives and photos were bought at a storage locker auction and then flipped on ebay.

I'd heard about her after I'd already moved away from Chicago - was a few years ago when the story came to light - correct?  Or maybe I'm thinking of a different everyday woman who, once she got her hands on a camera, it never left her...and she had thousands of images, undeveloped, in a storage locker.  Has to be the same gal.  In any case, a very Henry Darger-esque quality to it that I just love.

Always, always always search in the field I wish my phone was fast enough to use Terapeak, but eBay app for Android saves (more often makes) me so much in the field.  Found many odd brands that were big $ that I would've passed on.

Yeah, I've been getting sloppy lately, I've had 2 people message me with mistakes in my listings.  They've all been pleasant so far, and I've thanked them and offered free shipping for helping me out.

 

I'll tell you what is a constant scare, sending the wrong item to the wrong person.  Sold 42 items this Sunday and just had a heart attack when someone paid and I looked at the listing and thought for sure I had mailed it to someone else this morning.  I pre-bagged a bunch of stuff with the last 4 of the auction number on them for the ones I knew were going out, but a ton of stuff got sniped so I was pulling off the shelf and flipping through my box of bags.  Hasn't happened yet, but it's going to, and not for a couple of $9.99 items I'm sure, it's bound to be a RLPL that had a bidding war.  I'd bag everything with the listing # when I list it, but I am no Spoo and have a ton of stuff go unsold each week. So the relisted item will have a different #, that would be harder to keep up with.  Anyone have a foolproof system, besides selling every single listing each week?

Correct! Impressive photos. Much of them undeveloped negatives and those few that were were simply small ones done at the local drugstore.

How many of you guys have issues with people not reading basic info in the listing, have gotten a few bid retractions and had to cancel sales as well since buyers couldn't be bothered to read a few lines?
