I defer to your greater knowledge in such matters, sir. Your advice Trumps mine!



The brilliance of this post is clouded by the fact that you have a new avatar and I must assume that it really is...over.

Ebay advice, please. The C&J boots are long enough for me, but are just a little too tight. Starting price on the boots? Should I just dump them on BIN and wait?

Why don't you just start them with a low starting price and a BIN option. The BIN will stay in place til the bidding reaches 50%. They will get plenty of bids either way, but it will give an extended opportunity for someone to jump in them for the BIN. Don't forget to load up on photos in your listing.

Sounds good, but what's a reasonable price for the BIN? Would $40 be a low starting price that would attract enough bids, or should I aim a bit higher?

 

Someone is going to get a good deal on these, but I also want to make a little bit more than I usually do (now that I have some more ebay experience, I've been hitting that 3x or $30 mark with most of my stuff, but I've only listed a few items so far).

I'm surprised you haven't gotten enough interest here to avoid ebay altogether.

Yeah, I know! I've just posted them in this thread, so maybe I should head over to B&S.

 

I might see about stretching the left shoe a bit, though. They're 8.5 D, and I don't think it would be too hard to make them more comfortable (but actually, I have no idea about that).

Also if anyone wants to offer up knowledge on this tag, that would be great. Is this worth anything? I read up about Amies on here, and it seems like there's a wide range to the quality spectrum.

Where was it made? Post WWII Hardy Amies was a great maker... Nowadays I see their stuff in thrifts and it's made in China or Indonesia and it's pretty crappy. I guess it depends on how old it is.

That's a union tag on there, so I would assume it was made in the US.  From what little I've read about such tages, I believe it was made sometime between 1962-1976 (the (R) in the bottom left corner was added in '62)..
