    Very tempting. I usually try to stick with UK 10's, does anybody know if EG's run a little small?

    Mine was here late last week. Friday I think. I'm in the midwest.

    I ordered almost immediately after Spoo posted the link. Later that day i ordered some polish. No sign of the polish yet...

    Mine came yesterday in LA. Also packed poorly, but it made it.

    Definitely not true. The same thing happened to me and two other guys I know of. I sent him a message on ebay, but still haven't heard back from him :/

    Likewise. Came yesterday, and seemed to have one bubble wrap as the base, with the external package seeming to be crumpled, I'm surprised even one made it. Bit all was safe.

    However - minor quibble- almost 40-50% of the cream in one bottle seems to have vanished. And I did not realize that the bottles had a top that opens so easily, one push and you're there.

    Not entirely "desiderata" as such, but recalling the love of croc around here, I feel it necessary to post this... Especially in light of "Ferrari Funds" and whatnot.

    A 2002 Aston Martin DB7 V12, but with a re-upholstered interior. Namely, partial alligator skin. I can't tell if it's faux or not, since most shots aren't close enough, but it looks irregular enough to be real.

    Oops again.


    Yeah. Etsy's software isn't as good. It doesn't allow you to save searches even.

    On the search bar, you can specify "handmade/vintage/all items". If you select vintage, you cut out all the handmade stuff. Combine that with some well placed search subtractions (place a "-" before the word you want to filter out) and you can cut down the results to something reasonable. I know exactly who you mean with the J Press tags. It's pretty annoying.

    Both the blessing and the curse of Etsy is that there are still a lot of people there who don't quite know what they have. You have to use tricks to find the good stuff, but when you do its sometimes priced very low. I hadn't really intended to blow up my spot like this. :tounge: Oh well.

    Yeah, I think it also suffers from people who think their crap is worth more than it is, like the people who think that their old tweed jacket is worth $350, these people are on ebay too and it drives me crazy.

    The thing with search refinements is that you end up getting rid of misplaced items that are usually a good deal, taking away the "handmade" items will get rid of hundreds of shirt pillows, but it'll also filter out a bunhc of shoes and ties that should have been under "vintage".



    just to be clear, I didn;t mean you.

    Then, if I'm not mistaken, the BIN was pretty close to retail, wasn't it? Also the description was a gross misrepresentation.
