I’m a little stumped on this one. Old? Fake? Old fake?

Every single time. Actually, FB marketplace is the worst for this for me. On the rare occasion someone actually has read the description I almost want to just give them the item for free out of gratitude.
That looks awfully like feedback extortion to me. You should be able to get rid of it once they leave it.Block if you want. I screwed up here and switch labels on two packages. Neither was big $$ so I thought about just refunding both so I didn't have to pay for return shipping, but I could tell from the first message this guy was going to be a dick. I have nothing to lose here since he's already going to leave negative feedback and the most I'm out is a refund. I think ignoring his message will just piss him off more, so that's what I'll do.

Google the abbreviations. I did That and it is saying the format is wrong and there are specific places for each abbreviation in the shipping fields.
Thanks to those who reached out. I went in and just put a space before and after each slash mark on the top(street) line and that seemed to take car of it.
You need a sniping engine. I have used www.esnipe.com for 20 years. That sniping engine built my entire wardrobe in the early aughts. You can sleep soundly, knowing your bid is being taken care of. YMMV, of course. I use it less now that there are so few actual auctions, but I used it just the other week (and won!). Well worth the 25¢ per bid.About half of my eBay purchases so far this year have come from Luxeswap, and they’ve all been winners. My three favourite pieces of clothing right now are a Valstar field jacket and pants from Billy Reid and Valentini, all three of them Luxe.
The only problem is that the auctions end at around 4AM on a Monday morning in my time zone, so I start each week sleep deprived
There are lots of steamers out there now, but I think you'll find that most of us use Jiffy steamers. Built like tanks and will last for decades, unlike the cheap plastic ones in big box stores (that still work fine, but lack durability). Expect to pay $20-70. I have a couple of J-2s and a J-4000. All thrifted or off Craigslist at around $20 each. The other great benefit of Jiffy products is that they keep a full parts inventory, so in the unlikely event that you break something, you can fix it. The part I usually break on the J-2 is the little plastic valve that stops the water running out when you invert the water tank on to the steamer. But they're only a few bucks and the steamer works fine without it. You can tell when you call Jiffy that you're talking to the gal who's been there for 50 years and has seen it all . . . great company.Has anyone a steamer in possession that they use to prepare items for pics / shipment? Any recommendation?
