• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Does B&S seem slow to you lately?

And there definitely is something to the argument that B&S now reflects the dramatically reduced inventories of luxury goods since the stock market crash. Most every day I celebrate my good fortune in that I was able to make the most of buying opportunities in the '07-'09 fall from excess.
The shopping was good way back when. Kudos to the quality seller and his fellow sellers. I think the major factor is the post-crash economy.

Dont know what's going on in your case... Even in your situation, you should be able to have US buyers purchase through credit card rather than bank ac and have the cc charge the fees. I've definitely done this with a Canadian buyer before. Sent him $125cad charged directly to my credit card. He got it with no more than the typical PP fees.

I'm just a new member, but B&S seems a like a mixture of very different types of selling that sometimes clash with each other. Some people use it to closet clean, some to make money on thrift finds, some to pass along a good deal, some use it as a retail outlet, some to sell their handmade goods, etc.

I really like the "No bump without price drop" rule. One solution that I've seen used on other sale forums is listing the threads by the original post date and new posts do not bump the thread. Members are then restricted to a certain number of posts a week/month/whatever. I think whatever way you try to mitigate bumps you remain firm, which mostly seems to be the case here.
