post #27931 of 122416

I was instituting "The Method" this evening and as my arm fatigued from brushing, I accidentally scratched the shoe with the corner of the wood handle of my horsehair brush.  I was able to brush away much of the scratch, but the indentation in the leather remains, (although it has improved).  Does anyone have any experience with scratches like this healing?  I wouldn't say its deep, but what I am asking is will the indentation go away in time?

 

(Its hard to capture on camera)

Guys, my apologies for another dumb sizing question.. if 10D (TTS) is ok in width, but just a bit long (looks like I'm more 9.5), will 9.5D Barrie be just the same? I mean, 10 TTS length == 9.5 Barrie length?

understood this is a fan thread, so there's a lot of exaggeration going on. this can be quite amusing, not?

If any of you with the #4 boot in 9D would like to swap for my 9.5D #4 Atom Wingtip...its on the table. I'm ot selling, but I wish I was able to get that boot.

Do any of you know if the captoe is all eyelet as well? Thats really a make or break detail for me...

So I received a response from a moderator - I have been banned from Buying & Selling. He did offer up that I can buy my way back in for $500 - so I've got that going for me, which is nice... My infraction? Violating PayPal rules. Yep - PayPal rules. The specific violation, asking for an 4% upcharge if a seller was not comfortable sending funds via PayPal gift.

I'm not going to rant here (candidly, I think I sold 2, maybe 3 pairs of shoes on the thread) and I don't want this to be fodder for the conspiracy theorists (eBay isn't taking over the internet...) but instead it is a warning, they are policing the posts so if you rely on B&S don't get tripped up like I did.

There's been a thread up in both MC and SW&D classifieds for the last week that LAGuy was going to start locking down on "paypal abusers" or those who try surcharge to skirt the 4% fee paypal sucks from every transaction. Easiest now to just incorporate it into your initial asking price.

I had to hold myself back to be honest..but with 5 posts i figured he was trolling.

Ha, thats why I do it before everyone gets there...happy.gif

That sucks so bad.  Frankly, $500 is absolutely ridiculous.  Charging anything at all the first time seems like overkill.

You should be able to advertise a 4% discount for check or MO. That is if you increase your asking prices to compensate.
