    I usually list stuff on the high side and expect offers as everyone likes to get a "deal". I will wait until I get a fair offer (hence Brioni that just sold for $275 took 3 months to sell). Had a few $200 offers in the first few days, but knew it was a $275-300 suit to the right person. I also factor in the number of view and watchers but typically after 3-4 weeks I;ll put it on 15-20% off sale for 5-7 days then when the sale is over I will mark it down to the sale price and start over in 3-4 weeks again. Some higher end items will just go on sale and stay put as I know what they will usually sell for.

    As said, it all comes down to how fast you want to sell it. As long as the price is close to FMV then its just a waiting game for the right person to come along who likes it and wants it. I would say most items sell within the first 7 days or take about 45 days on average to sell.

    Must be PTO, but are you sure they are really Alden? The side wall numbers seem wrong as far as typesetting and arrangement.

    I didn't think so either but...

    Nordstrom customer service said they were Alden and the heels match.

    Also- not sure who else could have made them? Who else makes a bench grade shoe in the US?

    Is the shirt new or used? Brazil prohibits import of used clothing.

    Is the "on sale/X% off" option only available if you have a store? I'd love to do that, but can't seem to figure out how.

    That really sucks, I am sorry to hear that.

    I know this issue was discussed before, but maybe the solution would be to have more than one memory card? That way, everytime you remove one card, you are ALWAYS placing a new card in it's place? Wipe clean the card in computer, and repeat the process? Obviously, remembering would seem just as effective but I think this would force you have a habit. Couldn't put the card into the computer without taking out the other, so it would always be a swap. Just a thought.
