    i agree with spoo to an extent ,but in spoos advantage most of his stuff is geared toward women who are not usually that auction-savvy and i suspect lots of them bid up his mens stuff as well for husband/boyfriend gifts.That plus great pics, feedback and same listing structure for years hes a well known entity (read: he is on a lot of fave sellers lists) in the ebay community.

    agree: the pictures are absolutely critical.

    a savvy buyer's best friend is a seller with new, tagged items, good feedback and who's taken terrible pictures of his wares.

    I work like 16 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Have not had but more than a few *epic* fails, but the worst I can remember is a Goyard trunk I paid like $1000 for hoping to get $2000 for, selling for $350 or so. The other was an Asprey ostrich briefcase that ended at like $250 when it was supposed to go like $2500. Needless to say, I dont fux with luggage and suitcases any more. LOL

    Maybe not clueless, but have large bank accounts and are willing to cut someone for a new pair of gold ostrich Louboutins.

    Spoopoker,

    I won't be at all offended if you don't answer this, but are you a professional seller?

    How do you get your stuff? Is it consignments?

    I always wonder how those mega-sellers, like that guy who sells polo jackets and always pulls at the back to make them look super tight, make any money and where they get there stuff from.
