These two links get a particularly high amount of questions:

Not sure what it is. I checked both Internet Explorer and Chrome and they work fine on both (for me). If they mess up on yours, would you tell me what browser you're using? Thanks in advanced!

He paid with the same address?

Baroque?!  I'm so damn Baroque I can't even afford to pay attention.

 

Yeah, guy paid with the same address.  It's confirmed in PayPal and eBay, so I'm sending it there (and told him I would)...plus got signature confirmation which should require him to show ID (or be known to his letter carrier).  I'm sure it'll be fine...and if not, will deal with it if need be.

Thanks Spoo...

 

 

In your dreams :lol: actually in my dreams as I dont actually have the car.... yet. It's actually not a fair fight. Ferrari makes faster, more expensive cars that are more on par with Murcielago.

Thanks much for the help everyone. I'm about 98% it says 7x, whatever that means. I'll do the circumference measurement, and am saving that chart.

I looked at the larger tag photos, also assuming you might be misreading the 7X when it might be 7 1/2 or 71/4 etc...and it definitely looks like 7X, which I've never seen in a hat size before.

 

+1 to Wes for the handy chart - thanks mang!

...most depressing thing is maniacally refreshing my eBay active items and thinking I'll have my ass handed to me in just under 10 days...  

 

I better go watch some TCM (or better yet, DVD's I got for xmas of Key Largo and Rear Window), drink some whiskey, and let it be.  Serenity now...serenity now.

Whelp, it finally happened. After 8 years of selling, I accidentally sold the same item twice. This wasn't an accidental auto-relisting either. I actually took two sets of photos and everything. I'm actually surprised this hasn't happened sooner considering my almost non-existent inventory structure. 

 

Hoping the second buyer is not too pissed. I obviously refunded his money and sent a cancellation request, but I also offered him a 20% discount on his next purchase. Waiting to hear from him concerning the matter.

How often do you guys change buttons on jackets prior to selling? I got a navy orphan paul stuart jacket that would be blazerific with gold buttons, but I've never sourced buttons or anything so I'm a little unsure.

I accidently relist a bunch of things I have to cancel because I don't use any software. I re-list them as they get to the unsold category right away when the auctions end so my auctions are all uniform. But if you refresh too fast, sold items will go to "Unsold" first before fixing itself into the "Sold" section. Happened at least 20 times so far.

Never. But I do sell blazer buttons if the buyer wants to do it themselves.
