has anyone dealt with selling cologne. Is it legal to ship it from toronto, to say NYC. I tried reading a bit on it, but can't get an exact answer. I heard ground shipping only, anyone have experience with this?

Yup, hazmat if it goes on a plane (no air shipping)

Could I get a lighting critique?  Shooting with 4 100W equivalent CFLs, 5000k temperature.  I think I need to get some umbrellas on the top lights to both diffuse and add more light in general, and somehow get more light to the lower section in the back to remove those shadows.

Also, because photos of awesome fur coats requires a Wes-style fit pic...

So the Superbowl is 10 days from Thursday. Is the overlap between people shopping on eBay for Men's Wear and those watching the Superbowl small enough not to worry?

post #9262 of 15375

Forty-four out the door.  Most packages I've shipped out in one day; USPS even dispatched a special little truck to pick them up.  Nice to unload so much but I took a beating on a lot of stuff that only sold for min bid or just above - never doing that again since I don't have the followers that the big-timers have.  Other items did way better than hoped, so it all comes out fine in the end.

  

Then I turned around and dropped $40 on eBay for a vinyl rekkid that I have owned 6 or 7 times already and always let it go...but this one has all the posters/inserts that were included in the earliest pressings, and graded near mint (fingers crossed - it's coming from the UK where they are notorious for over-grading), so hopefully the best copy yet and will be a keeper.

  

Heads up to anyone who uses the USPS small FR boxes - I got a pack of 25 that appear to have defective adhesive.  I packed a bunch that sat overnight; the next morning the self-seal flaps had unsealed either partially or fully on most of them - bit of packing tape rectified it but I'd never have known save for the MLK holiday making me wait an extra day to ship stuff out.

 

And now I'm settling in for a long winter's nap, after eating more than I have in a long time - made a few Tilapia filets, a nice salad, and indulged in a weakness: the cheapest, whitest, brown-and-serve dinner rolls I could find.  Cap it off with a beer and a Zanaflex and I'll be melting into the sofa.  Good night!

Congrats!

And thanks for the tip on the boxes, I do notice the newer ones feel a lot worse than before

I also had this problem. Mine weren't flat rate though. So make sure to check every USPS small box.

+1, I always do mine the day before, and then double check them when they go out. Never seen a problem or heard of one from my customers. However, I did get one in the mail last week that was open.....luckily the carrier taped it for me.

Always tape your boxes. ALWAYS. Its worth the few extra cents to save you from even one disaster of an opening box. I've had packages delivered to me that the box got bent and opened in a corner and the clothing inside got dirty.

I'm not starting any new auctions this Thursday, but only because I'll be out of town next weekend (I'll be in TX for a race). I don't think SuperBowl Sunday is a great sales day...

I want deets...I'm intrigued

+1, always extra tape everything like a paranoia.  Especially my bulging tweed boxes.
