    Okay French Joke

    Walt Disney has Euro Disney in France, very similar to the US versions except there is no fireworks display at night...

    Would love a little help with these. Never seen anything like them before so I bought them. Made by Stetson, which is different from the cowboy company http://vintageshoesaddict.com/shoe_company/stetson_shoe_company.htm (thanks for the PM with the linked info!). Should they be listed as B or AA? Also, how would you title them, unsure of the exact style... Thanks in advance!

    I think one is the measurement for the forefoot and the other for the heel.

    You would label those as B width, the 2A is the heel width. As for the description.... I am at a loss that is just a piece of footwear that can't make up it's mind on what it wants to be. Good luck with the sale!

    I like it.

    However I disagree with what it says slightly... I've notice something about when you leave the stars blank.
    For sellers who do all the automated stuff and ship on time, the bottom 3 star categories are filled in automatically at 5 stars. When the buyer does not click the 5 star rating for item description, it eventually starts to look bad on your seller page. The bottom three are 5 out of 5 and the top one is 4.9 out of 5, the higher the feedback goes, the farther apart the number will become.

    I wondered why mine looked somewhat similar - must have been the automatic 5 stars for free shipping / shipping time / communication...hence making "item as described" rated lower than the rest, which yes does start to look bad.

    A few days ago, a buyer opened a SNAD return case. We exchanged a few messages. Today they decided to keep it, canceled the return, and left feedback (below)...the power of personal and genial communications. Yay!

    Not everyone gets the same offers. If not in your inbox, was not offered to you. I didn't get it either.

    I never got a message. But it just popped up under an item I was looking at.

    Try hovering over the "my eBay" link at the top right corner, the code was at the bottom of the drop down menu.

    No dice over here - not when I hover over it from my summary, nor when I'm looking at an item. Oh well...
