    Does anyone know this brand of belt? I'm looking for a website but not finding one.

    I spent some time the last couple days checking it out and it is full of our listings. Help spread the word on your tumblr pages and drive some traffic to haberdashboard and eventually our listings.

    Hey Garagesale users - once I drag and drop my photos into the auction template from the hard drive, does Garagesale make a copy of the photo and keep it in the template? Can I delete the other off of the drive? Running out of space, and don't really want to order an external drive at the momen (yes, I am making backups so I don't lose my stuff.)

    Thanks! Don't know why I couldn't find it.

    I've got a ladies belt I'm posting that has gauguin's riders in the beach printed on the leather. I wanted to get more idea of prices.

    Figure this is a better place to post than the thrift thread, everyone who knows what the f they're talking about is here. Reality check:

    If you look in the library folder, there's an application support folder. Garagesale stores the scaled down copies in that folder but not in any order.

    I would be interested in how people archive their auctions.

    I make batch folders broken down by months throughout the year. Each batch consists of a photo shoot of XX amount of items. So I may have 25-30 batches in each month, and those month folders are stored in annual folders. This is all on my hard drive. From there I edit those pictures, and drag & drop those into GS. Those files are stored at a smaller size, because eBay limits the size, and there is no need for me to store original image sizes...after all we plow through so many listings and sales, there is no point in me keeping them.

    Got a purchase from Australia. I quoted them 45 dollars for shipping, actually came out to be 70. Should I ask for them to cover the rest, or mark this up as a costly lesson learned?

    Would not request more money. I would be really pissed as a customer.

    Your misquote/mistake, you eat the cost....imo. How would you feel if it was reversed? Wouldnt you be here complaining how it was a crappy seller who quoted you one price only to turn around and ask for more money?

    How were you so far off on this? Sorry but you really have to think like the customer here and just eat the cost.
