1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Tiffany & Co. haul today. Under closer inspection I'm relatively certain a few of the pieces are fake so I won't post those, but I would love some knowledgeable assistance confirming the following items which I have medium - high confidence (depending on the piece) are genuine.

    oolong just looking at a couple of known realz around here:

    the bracelet looks pretty good! should have a tiny stamp at the 'wrist' of the lobster clasp next to the lever, you should be able to see some kind of solder mark at the three smallest links, these are the one off of the clasp, the one off of the charm, and the one the claps holds... there should be a tiny ridge around the hole in the charm. hope that helps!

    Ha, Eazy... I know you like that Caruso stuff. And we have almost the same size. I was thinking the same thing. Had they been my size, I'd be PM'ing right now.

    Dude, seriously? The stores I go to don't even have 40 suits of any kind in stock. Thrift stores so large they accommodate shopping carts? Only in America...

    SELLERS - DONT PROVIDE EBAY INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING -

    2nd time I've been screwed over....


    We are contacting you regarding eBay Item #: xxx which you recently sold to your buyer, xx. We received your parcel at our shipping center in Erlanger, KY; however, the parcel arrived empty of the item and we cannot ship it forward.

    Because the package arrived empty at the Global Shipping center in this condition, we cannot hold our shipping partner responsible for the loss. I regret the inconvenience this causes. At this time we encourage you to issue a refund in full to your buyer. Please contact your shipping carrier to start the shipping insurance claim process, if applicable.

    Note that this is the most current information we have on the shipment. You may receive another email about the item. The other email will be from our automated system and may not reflect the most current information. I wanted to send you a more personal message to provide further clarification.

    If you have any questions please, contact eBay directly.

    Thank you for all of your eBay business and for taking care of your buyer. It's great sellers like you that make eBay the best place to buy and sell online.

    Sincerely,
    Kurt F.
    eBay Customer Service

    I'm based in Canada. In more than 600 international transactions using tracked mail (to the States, principally), I've lost 0 parcels. I can't believe sellers are willing to let employees of some logistics company open and re-package (and steal) their items.

    Saw the resident flipper in my local GW today. Usually he is in the wares section, waiting to pounce on a cart as soon as one comes out.
    Today I saw him looking at the ties for the first time, standing there looking up labels on eBay for 10 minutes. After he left I went over to see what he missed...

    Random question: Saw some suits that belonged to the pro wrestler John Cena. I'm positive they are his because they have a massive drop. Would that be something people would buy? There are wresting fans of course, but not sure if they're interested in his clothing.
