    Did USPS fix their shoe boxes yet? All the ones I have on hand have an appreciable gap where the flaps do not meet...

    lol awesome. I was going to try to help you out but don't see anything in my size up my alley right now. I'm newly on the hunt for some "staple" suede shoes to rock with SC/Trouser combination, hoping for loafers, but that's a pipe dream.

    Also re: 0 feedback buyers. I had 1 bidder on a GA tie all week, nice feedback, sure thing. With 3 minutes left a new buyer who registered 6 days ago with 0 feedback outbid him. No payment yet...

    @Brianpore photos and auctions look awesome. I am interested in this: TO BOOT NEW YORK Beige Sand Suede Casual Dress SUMMER hoes Mens 10.5. Do you think I would win an item not as described case if I claimed you did not send me size 10.5 HOES but rather just a used pair of shoes? [​IMG]

    I sometimes use the priority stickers [​IMG] -especially when I sold something that was way under price, and hate using my purchased tape lol. Its a mental persuasion.

    I need to get around to asking for a few rolls. Normally my PO is so damn busy to wait in line. I am able to set my packages on the very last window, and slide them around the corner out of reach without having to need a clerk.

    You need to get up on that next level drop box PO. Though catching angry looks from long lines is fun.

    Don't think so. I squeeze it and tape it.

    Call me uptight, but hoes just don't look quite right to me with open lacing.

    Here's a new one to me. A guy with a ton of positive feedback won my auction for an RLPL tie, then 3 days later sent this message:


    Hey, this is a bit unfortunate I thought I had the money however a sibling spent money of mine without telling me and my account only has 5 dollars in it. I'd be happy to give you that for the troubles of you having to relist it. I don't know how this works.. I guess my account will get a knock by ebay for commiting to pay and not paying. I hope there is an option to cancel orders.​

    I'm annoyed, but it seems petty to charge him $5, especially if it's really his last fiver. What would you guys do?

    Agreed, and just tell him to keep an eye on your auctions when he has more cash :)
