    If you check out the ebay app "outright" it will show you your incoming funds in day, month, or year format.

    The 1099K will only be issued by paypal if you meet 2 criteria.
    1. over 200 sales transactions in one year,
    2. over $20,000 in sales in that year.

    Technically... even if you don't receive a 1099K, you are still responsible for the taxes owed.

    Goodwills in Omaha still suck. On a positive note I was able to complete my Mongo (from Blazing Saddles) costume. :slayer:

    Robert Grahams are not a common sight here in Pittsburgh. These are the first I've come across. So, according to common wisdom here on the thrifting thread, I should just post these up on eBay and wait for the bucks to flood in?

    I want to add to the gun conversation without throwing my opinion in the ring. Europe is thought to be very conservative with gun ownership and largely this is true. However, several countries are more liberal including Austria and Switzerland. Most Austrians don't really know much about the gun laws and therefore believe that Austria's laws are far more conservative than the US which isn't exactly true.

    All Austrian citizens have the right to own firearms as long as the police can't think of a good reason to not allow them a license (i.e. they have a history of mental illness or are terrorists, etc.). However, an Austrian can only own 2 handguns at any given time unless they are considered a collector or seller of firearms, in which case they can get a special license. Long guns are another story and you can generally own a number of them.

    Guns must be stored in secure locations in the home and you can be checked at any time by the police as to where you store your weapons. Ammunition must be kept separately (I believe). However, I think some can get away with keeping one nearby for self-defense (legally or not).

    Carrying a concealed weapon can be legally done with a proper license. Not many people have this license anymore for a number of reasons. I know of one other person that has such a license. You must be able to demonstrate a credible threat to your well-being.

    Another fun fact: pump shotguns are illegal. Even for hunting purposes, one can only use a side by side or over under barrel shotgun.

    Now, onto my finds...

    I've found a few pieces of Prada lately, all women's.

    Pumps

    Blouse

    I found these and need some help because the insoles were removed. I looked in the label ID thread and a few are possibilities, but I thought I'd ask you guys since some of you seem more familiar with English makers. All they say on the bottom is Made in England. Inside it has the last information. I hope someone can give me a definitive answer!!

    Some people have to work away from a computer during the day and can't camp out on the thrift thread at all hours!

    Anyway, like Jesse said, JP makes basics a cut above Uniqlo with the price to prove it. I probably wouldn't pass it up in the wild, but the eBay resale is nowhere near the other vaunted SW&D brands. I wasn't aware that their focus was more on womenswear than men's, however.

    Thanks.

    Does the 200 transactions count my ones here?

    Why would I have a tax liability for selling my old dirty clothes? :hide:

    Only the ones set up as a purchase or if an invoice is sent.

    The IRS doesn't care how you made the money... Just how much you are going to pay them for that money.

    It is just a casual basics brand, pretty high quality but a bit overpriced in my mind. There is almost always overstock of Perse pieces at the Saks and Neiman outlets if you do become addicted.

    the 200 transactions only comes into play if you have also sold $20,000 worth of your dirty old clothes
