This week we’re in lovely, cold New York City for a little holiday vacation (and scavenging, of course.) You know we brought a backpack full of cheap groceries from the country on the Amtrak. Hobos! A lot happened this week in the comments, including people gasping at the price we got for that little ceramic owl. Trust us, we gasped too when it sold. Another bit of controversy was that eBay seems to have changed the Global Shipping Program to require package dimensions without telling any sellers about it. We were a bit miffed about that one, but, however, international buyers can still purchase from our store, they just get bumped to USPS Priority directly to their address. And, as Margana points out, you can bulk edit your listings to add dimensions, thus making them eligible again for GSP.
As promised, I created the “Scavenger Zen” mug for you all to contemplate while you drink coffee and list!
