On the subject of ties, I recently sold some nwt vineyard vines ties. Put them in a tie gift box, and then shoved that into a USPS tyvek. Worked well but those stupid tie boxes were a bit pricey. Probably wouldn't go to that trouble on something used. I just received 2 Turnbull & Asser ties I won, and they were each rolled into a sandwich sized plastic bag, then placed in a small but adequate paper envelope. Efficient, if not the nicest looking/best protected method. The ties were fine. Wes, thanks for confirming that I should call eBay. Ended up speaking with someone from the int. shipping program and they got things all squared away. Refunded, and now in the cancellation process before setting up a new BIN for the buyer to win with the shipping he prefers.
