    :D

    Will also pack that way for trades upon request for curious parties - but the scales need to be weighed in my favor, natch.

    In USPS tracking parlance, exactly what in the hell does "Arrival at Unit" mean? Is that anything like "Delivered?" FWIW the ship-to address didn't have a "unit" number like an apartment or condo, just a regular street address.

    I agree with under-selling, or at most selling pretty much as you see it, and not over-selling. When I sold collectible vinyl records, I used a standardized grading system that everyone who was a hard-core collector was familiar with, and always knocked mine down a few points so the buyer was at minimum happy with, and sometimes very happy with, their purchase.

    Worked when smaller (it's now in the upper right corner of the forum page as a "recent image in this thread")...took me to your store no problem - think my phone didn't like it so big the first time.

    What do you guys use for shipping shoes? Is a bag ok? I always used a box but I don't have enough shoe boxes and Im stuck using a medium flat rate box which is more expensive than regular priority in many cases. Also longer shoes don't fit in those and need a large flat rate box, and that's way too much $.

    I still use my own boxes for shoes, and that will probably never change. I don't feel that the free priority shoe boxes provide enough stability for the shoes. I have received shoes in bags, and it kinda pisses me off.

    I uses a 200lb crush corrugated box. 13x10x4. Works for most shoes up to size 13 or so. I polish them, tuck the laces inside so the aglets don't scar the surface, place them in a poly bag to prevent unexpected water damage, surround them with 8 sheets of bubble wrap.

    Same, I use a 14 x 10 x 6 or for some boots / sneakers then it's a 15 x 13 x 6

    It's a dollar or so at box store, feels much better than priority boxes
