From what they told me, the only ones they end up with besides FRB's are boxes someone ordered and couldn't be delivered.

I think you might be right (and that I might have been correct as well)...just looking at them on eBay I think most folks are using the term incorrectly, which is what is throwing me.  Thank you.

I considered myself blessed when my local USPS had some of the board game boxes (good for long overcoats etc) - my locals usually carry maybe 4 or 5 different sizes at most.  I just ordered a boatload more boxes in various sizes from usps.com - it used to be hit-or-miss ordering online but has gotten better for me.  If you need massive quantities, order by phone.

Glad to know its not just me, I order about everything twice and I'm lucky if it shows up once.

Regarding serialization, it's a straight up number, not related to the date, but that's a very cool idea.  I  serialize items as I measure. The sheets I use to write everything down have line items so page 5, line item 21 becomes 5.21.  I add that number to the "add a note" section of the listing.

The only down side to having the serial # as a note, is those notes do not transfer to PayPal, you only see them on eBay.  I am using eBay's bulk shipping tool, and it works extremely well for me.  It prints a package list and all the labels at the same time.  I just have to write my number on the package list then pull all the items.

I was hoping there was an easier way!  Glad to hear you're not doing it with garage sale, I am allergic to mac, and I really shouldn't be since my entire industry is Mac based..  Also, if I remember earlier conversations in this thread, you have the same Nikon D3100 as me.  Are you still doing a lot of post processing, or have you figured out a way to  get those great shots straight off the camera?

 

I use the square photo when I can for the 1st image in the listing and then rectangular images for all the rest. I think the square image lets you shower a larger item in the search page as it fills up the entire area.

That's a great tip!  I now have to think about making sure my first image is square.  It's the (not so) little things that can really make a difference!

Thinking this might be my new home office + eBay stock room + packing & shipping station + photography space + etc.  Underutilized 400 sf space on my lower level, misc crap stored there now can easily go elsewhere.  Then drag down my office desks etc, photo stuff, racks of clothes, and packing stuff, all of which is in 3 different rooms upstairs.  Even has a bathroom thru one of those doors, and another closet.  Already has HVAC, hard-wired for internet/TV, and do get my WiFi down there.  Can't think of a reason not to, aside from it's gonna be a lot of work, and I need to have some new tables built, maybe finally install a wall-storage system that 1OfTheCoolKids clued me to.  And would free up my dining room, and both of the spare bedrooms I now use as my office and stock room...to use as actual spare bedrooms or something more "normal" (one as a spare bedroom, the other maybe for books / records / vintage stereo).

 

Just thinking out loud here.  Carry on...

That sucks. I've had a lot of returns recently. Some idiot is going to end up paying about $20 in total shipping to try on a pair of boots he paid $45 for.

I think I have it beat. Fortunately I am horrible at emptying my email. I have 5 pieces of evidence that I sold to the correct person and shipped to the correct address in a timely fashion. Should be open and shut. We shall see.

I can't respond to you because you have re-awoken a seething jealousy over the affordability of real estate in Atlanta

Well, I'm in the northern 'burbs - maybe 25 minutes from the big city.  But yeah I moved about 2500 miles to buy a house here - super-cheap compared to where I was on the west coast, utilities way less, property taxes low, food / gas / etc cheap as well [again, compared to where I was - I'm sure some locals are grumbling about prices going up].  Not my first choice, but it'll do.  Keeping an eye out for a nice 1920's-ish craftsman bungalow here but they are scarce outside of the city. 

First world problems - I gots them.

Looks like a great area - I wish I had a bit more room. Last night I rearranged my office and it's a lot more functional now. I actually enjoy setting things up/reworking space for my business. We have a 4 bedroom house but with one room dedicated to a gym and the other a guest room, that only leaves 1 extra room other than the master for me to use as an office. There are no basements in 99% of houses here, so you've really gotta have a big pad to have any real storage space. I think we are around 2,400 SF.

Transitioning to a tabletop mannequin has really saved me a ton of room. Definitely the single best decision I've made with my setup. I guess I don't technically need anymore space, but if I were carrying the inventory that some of you are, I definitely would.

I saw someone calling it a "tone on tone" plaid. Have no idea if that's a proper term.

 

But I like the fabric.

what is the wall storage system?  As to the build out, I went to habitat and got a 30" luan door which I cover with craft paper (I buy the rolls at home depot, the stuff they use to protect wood floors after they're finished). It is both the measuring station and the mailing station. all boxes, tape, tissue, bubble wrap, are under it. 

 

Total investment was about $20. Oh. forgot to say that I clap it to saw horses on each end to keep it from moving.
