    I'm selling a pair of shoes on Ebay, and a prospective buyer from Japan asked how much it would cost to ship the shoes to him. Any ideas? I screwed around with the USPC website and came up with about $35-55, depending on the service. Sound right?

    PNB is the same seller whose 2-light kit I was looking at (posted earlier) - this one has soft boxes instead of umbrellas, bigger, 1 more light, etc. Same seller has myriad configurations and if you look too much you get confused and end up not buying anything for fear of buying the wrong setup. I'm just gonna pull the trigger, decide and buy something - worst case scenario it doesn't work for me and I resell on CL, or add to it and make do.

    Ever weird you out when you post something in the thrift brag thread, then go to list it on eBay and can't find a sold comp so you search for it on Google and see your SF post...and now anyone who finds it on eBay can Google it and see that you bought as a thrift item?
    Maybe why many folks don't mention the maker, and just post a photo of the label (Spoo &c). Lesson learned.

    1. Not really the right thread, no.
    2. Doesn't matter, you already bought them.

    Ok thanks, just wanted to see, because I just found out they were going to sell those same shoes at the Nordstrom anniversary sale.
    But, of course at a higher price - better condition new w/ all the original stuff -.
    Debating on whether I should keep these or sell & get those instead

    Well the seller does have a return policy with restocking fee. Up to you. For factory defects, I think you could have done better. Depends how bad the flaw is, whether it bothers you, and what your cost would be at this point.

    I think that's a pretty good deal there. That mark doesn't look so bad. You probably will put worse on them in the first week anyway. IMHO those should have sold for more than you paid.

    It's either a paper cut out arrow, or a crusty old foreskin.

    [​IMG]FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    First negative feedback a few minutes ago. Sent someone the wrong item. Fully refunded their money, sent them the right item with a bag and a label to send the wrong item to the proper recipient. Refunded the other person too, just in case they didn't actually send the item on to him. So everyone gets their money back, and the product, and I get this.

    ship me wrong shirt -then wanted me to clean up his mess


    Shit's frustrating, was hoping to get a hell of a lot more feedback before I got one of these. Going to fight like hell to get it removed.
