    I don't usually sell Gucci shoes

    But when I do, they go for amazing amounts of money.

    Acosby has not replied to my PM yet, can someone please go to his house to check on him?

    It was Queen's Day here in the Netherlands last week and I was all prepared to snap up the usual clothing bargains from the giant street market here in the city. It was great weather, I forgot my hat and the sun punished me. After picking up some nice bits and pieces...

    * Ralph Lauren tab, club collar, double cuff shirt (with nice cuff links still in the cuffs!) for €2.50
    * Zegna white shirt (completely unworn) €2
    * Toni Gard evening shirt, €1
    * Grey linen summer suit (trousers a little narrow in the thighs), €3

    * Three wool ties, 80 cents
    * Three knitted silk ties (two Charvet) 40 cents (!)

    I finally arrived at a stunning Zegna glen check suit, lovely soft pink lining and next to no wear, for a mere €12. Not my size however, but a candidate for Ebay. But then I realised that the small change I'd been spending was all I had on me, I'd forgotten the money pouch. So I begged the vendor to hold it for me while I found a cash machine. And damn it all when I got there two were out of order and the other had a blank screen. No doubt the thousands of people had exhausted the contents. Getting to another machine in that crowd would have been hours. I'm still smarting.

    I get this in my eBay inbox:

    Dear typhoid_jones,

    Why won't you accept my bid?

    xxxxxxx


    - xxxxxxx

    Please allow me to retort:

    Dear xxxxxxx,

    Hello.

    I would like to begin by saying that this isn't meant to be rude. Over the last 2 years or so, you have contacted me prior to the end of several auctions with lowball offers. Some of them were insultingly low. I take a great deal of time and effort trying to select items that I feel would appeal to people and offer them at prices considerably below retail. I blocked you over a year ago when you offered me something in the neighborhood of 30% of my asking price for a very nice Brooks Brothers or J. Press suit (I don't recall which) in fine condition that later sold for more than what I was asking.


    Nothing personal, but I would simply prefer not to do business with you at this time.

    Thank you for your interest.
    -M-

    [FONT=arial, sans-serif]And then this:[/FONT]

    Dear typhoid_jones,

    Ok and thanks.

    - xxxxxxx

    That was pretty unnecessary, IMO. If this is for BIN stuff, just tick the "automatically reject offers below $xxx" and set that number at what you'd consider "insultingly low", and you'll never have to see the offers. If he's contacting you via message with the shit offers, simply ignore them. I mean, you're obviously within your rights, but I'm not above selling to anyone willing to buy, and even if the offer is shit now, one day on another item, it may not be so I usually do my best to avoid burning bridges.

    BNWT John Varvatos linen shirt. Size small but measures more like a medium.

    I am not sure if this was the case for him, but I have similar contact on items without a best offer option. This includes both auction style and BIN....

    Blimey mate, methinks that shirt be fit for only half a man!!


    I mean yeah, I have too. I've had dudes offer me basically nothing for auction style stuff, but like I said, I just ignore them. I rationalize that if I have it auction style or without an OBO, then that's the case for a reason, and they'll get the picture when the auction ends without a reply.
