Tom Ford Ostrich Weekender $5,000 OBO (actually not that bad)
Can someone please explain to me why some sellers raise the price of a item after it did not receive any bids?
Because if it's only going to get one bid because it has narrow appeal, they want it to be at a good price. When they had the price low, they were hoping for a bidding war.
Ah, that makes sense. But is still frustrating.
Aubercy bespoke - 10E vintage black
Cheap BIN, high shipping
Bid on some Dovers in US11
Right - they don't want to sell it for less than the opening bid. E.g., recently an item had an opening bid of $5999 and had no bids. He relisted it at $7499 or BO - clearly hoping that someone will offer 10% less and he'll get his money. Or something.: sly:
Question for Dunhill experts (Stephen?)
What questions can I ask the seller so as to be assured this item is authentic as opposed to fake (and I have bought fake Dunhill on Ebay previously)? Are there serial numbers associated with this item? Thanks.
Dunhill saddle tan wallet/notebook:
Here's the same item offered by a different seller:
... or G*d's way of saying that you have too much jack.
Ohhh I'm not too sure with regards to authenticity on Dunhill bits. If you want my honest opinion - I would say the auction you posted is definitely genuine. Especially with the type of leather and emboss. I've never seen a fake Dunhill notebook before. The box is consistent with Dunhill items I've purchased from the store.
Thanks for your insight, Stephen.

These definitely aren't shell cordovan.
I contact the buyer and wrote, "What leads you to describe these as shell cordovan? They sure look like calf."
He wrote back. "OK." and didn't change the listing.
So... vigilante justice?
No use trying to make people change their behavior. In the end, the educated buyer ALWAYS does better than the ignorant one. Sellers are selling, and sometimes honor & honesty doesn't matter to them.
