    I will know the sizes later in the afternoon. Right now they are in my car, and I have class in a few minutes.

    Also thanks! The bag is cool, a bit smaller than I would use.

    Pretty jealous of the finds in here. Hit 5 shops 3 times each in the past nine days and haven't found one item worth buying.

    God bless you. Plenty of my students would have skipped class - or at least been late.

    ......Wait, what?? Pics!!


    As for me, today was a bit of a bust. Hit the store where I scored last Friday. Nothing but a couple scraps left (couple red label Samuelsohn flannel trousers and a Samuelsohn sportcoat). Stuff moves fast at this store.

    I did come out with a red tartan plaid button down by Viyella for Lands End (XL - up for grabs) and a really cool hooded sweatshirt by a local street-wearish company called Lee Greenwich. Made in Minneapolis. Fits perfectly.

    I know this is not the right thread, but brief advice over the blame game on eBay.

    I had a buyer complain to me that I did not consolidate shipping on two items so he could get a reduced rate. He won two items, both two days apart. He paid for the first item immediately, and I shipped immediately. He then wins an auction two days later, pays immediately and I ship the next day. Trouble is I cant read the future so assumed after the first item, our business was concluded. I did not anticipe him winning another auction two days later. Buyer wants a $15 refund on postage over the consolidation issue. Should I refund his postage? Buyer has not been impolite and not threatened anything, but did say that all sellers consolidate their items for a cheaper overall shipping rate. I cannot see how this is a seller error, perhaps I was too hasty in my postage. Do you guys have a wait period before you post if you have auctions with multiple ending times?

    You're certainly not at fault in any way. It's the buyer's responsibility to inquire on combined shipping and make such arrangements. The buyer should ask in advance 1) if the seller combines shipping for multiple wins and 2) if so, notify the seller via message or note with payment that he is bidding on other items and to wait until those auctions end to ship, in case he wins them.
