    Similar to what Brian posted, if I accidently buy something with damage or non-normal wear I identify it as thoroughly as possible. I had thrifted a suit for myself, only to discover a missed a huge gash in the pants. I ended up posting it and making a few bucks on it. I was glad just not to lose the $7 I paid:

    Just updated the blocked list with an aggregate block that you can just copy/paste into your blocked list. Could save you a headache. I'm including the list below for those without access to the list. I don't know if it's saved me any headache, but the list is pretty extensive, who knows.

    I would have sold it as just the coat, I've never sold a BB sport coat for that cheap, I think the jacket was tainted by association.

    Self-motivated is the only way. Creative motivation is a big factor for me.

    Noticed that "wowniceshirt" is on the block list...will have to eyeball it to see why, but I know this guy is local and does a lot of business on eBay, and has bought from me in the past no problem (and went on to re-sell, but, to quote Wes - DILLIGAS?). Just sayin' - he's known locally and no problems in my dealings with him.

    I know I whined about him reselling something from me when I first started out, hope I wasn't responsible for him being on there. I've learned quite a bit in the last couple years - if somebody wants to flip my stuff, as long as I've made what I want off of it, I'm good.

    Hmm, so that sucks.

    The iPhone ebay app cuts you off at 600 listings. Anything beyond the 600 just doesn't exist, even if you search for it.

    Yes, you get the 100 you already had, plus 400 more to make a total of 500.

    So say June 1st I use up all my 100 free listings, then open a store on the 2nd. I would only get an additional 400 listings, not 500? Sorry, just trying to get the most listings for my buck.

    Hmmm. Trying to remember when I made the switch to 2500 free. I think I got to use both, but it was toward the end of the month for me, so it didn't happen.

    So, you can't see your own listings on the app after 600? That seems to be a rather arbitrary cutoff point for what the app can handle. I'm only at 430+ listings at the moment, so haven't quite hit that threshold yet. I guess I may find myself there sooner or later...
