Great shape, like it was made yesterday.

Ebay talk below, unspoiler at your own risk.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Item in question is this pair of sunglasses
http://www.ebay.com/itm/120949945833

I received an offer for 60 and countered at 80. The buyer then sends me this message:
Quote:
is the glasses has alot of scratches on the lenses are visible with the naked eye that will effect the vision? is it comes with case & cleaning cloth? pls advise, thx

I retracted the offer because this didn't give me a warm, fuzzy feeling about dealing with this person. The lenses are in good condition, but the frame definitely shows some wear which can be seen in the pictures and I stated it in the auction.

Just now the same buyer sent me an offer for 80 and this message:
Quote:
HI SELLER
YOU GAVE ME AN OFFER FOR $80.
I WAS PLANNING TO CLICK ACCEPT IT THE NEXT MORNING AFTER LONG DAY AND CAME HOME LATE ON THE BALL FIELD BUT YOU RE-TRACTED EARLY THAN ACTUAL TIME YOU SET FOR ME.
ANYHOW, I WONDER IF YOU WOULD SELL IT WITH THE SAME PRICE AND I WILL PAY INSTANTLY. OR DO I NEED TO MAKE ANOTHER OFFER? PLS ADVIE, THX

I would be thrilled to get $80 for these glasses, but I'm still put off a bit by the seller (general demeanor and grasp of the English language). They're real, but I'm really not in the mood for a bogus counterfeit item claim or something like that. So, what would you do?

Sage advice.

Tell him to make another offer then sit on it for the 3 days until it expires, and see if someone else makes one.

I would wait for the next buyer to come along.

They're going on day 40 now. Offers have been trickling in slowly, but mostly ~50-60, which is less than I wanted, and they ignore any counter. It's unlikely I get another offer before this one expires in the next 48 hours. Although I think I may just block the buyer and continue waiting. Sunglasses aren't what's filling my spare bedroom.

Buyer in question does have 1800+ feedback though (326 as a seller), in case that changes your minds.

:shrug: I have been wrong before. Those look like microcreases to me. I hope for him they are shell.

On unrelated news I have found a pair of Alden for Barrie Booters shortwing shell cordovans (marked as such) today. 11E and available when i post the photos.

From what I've found Worthmore's were Florsheim's starter line. Here's a pic of the shoes cleaned up a bit. I still can't tell, dammit. Any experts out there?

Look at the feedback he has left for others. Any dings?
