Thank you for posting these photos! I came up with a very similar system about 10 years ago. Not only is it extremely sturdy but it also meets the requirements of rental storage places to NOT attach anything to the walls. The cost of one floor to ceiling cinder block shelving unit was about $70. I put several of these up in climate controlled rental units and have never looked back. I dread the day when I have to take them down though!
Simplicio, thanks for that link! Since the shakers don’t have necks, I kinda doubt this will work but I’m still going to give it a try. It is certainly creative!
Jay, yes, I think you can buy different corks. The problem is that the holes in the bottom are usually so small you can’t get anything in there to cut up the old corks. If you do manage to get something in the hole, there isn’t enough room to manipulate the cutting tool. Still trying though…I have hundreds of S&P shaker sets and this is a common problem.
I have two light boxes that came with mini lights on stands. I use them daily but have noticed that the lights give off too much yellow. I use the camera’s white setting to offset the yellow but I know there are whiter bulbs out there. What kind do I need to buy to get truly white light?07/11/2017 at 5:17 pm in reply to: "Thanks USPS…You're the Best!" stickers on eBay packages? #20277
That’s a really good point and something I’ve never considered. I ship a ton of fragile items but I’ve had so few claims over the years that I’m not knowledgeable about what is required to pursue a claim successfully. Definitely something to check out.07/01/2017 at 5:19 pm in reply to: "Thanks USPS…You're the Best!" stickers on eBay packages? #19958
That must be the rationale. Just hard to believe there are any real benefits. I use big “Fragile” stickers all the time but I’m well aware that is mostly just for the benefit of the customer. It probably has no bearing on how the package is actually handled by the postal service.07/01/2017 at 3:10 pm in reply to: "Thanks USPS…You're the Best!" stickers on eBay packages? #19955
Yes, I do but I can’t figure out how to attach it to my post. I’ll be glad to put up the photo if someone can tell me how.

Those are definitely for keeping plants moist. Just push them in the soil around the base of the plant, then add water to the frog’s mouth. When it dries out, add more water. I have some myself.
That hadn’t even occurred to me; I bet you’re right! I’ll make sure I view the next few notifications and see if that stops the problem. Thank you Thrifted Sister!
All of this information is SO helpful! You guys are the best; thank you so much for your input!
Thanks very much! I am using an Android so will try what you mentioned. I’m not very phone savvy so this advice is great.
“Colonial Harlequin” is as good as anything! There’s just something familiar about this pattern that is just beyond my grasp…..
Thank you to everyone for your input and advice! The variety of ways to handle this problem was really astounding. With this fresh perspective I was able to come to a satisfactory resolution with the buyer. Since the advice ranged from one end of the spectrum to the other, I think I’ll keep the details to myself.
To answer SalarySlave’s question, the item was a plush chick from The Rushton Company, a label to ALWAYS watch for! The one I have is apparently quite rare and generated a lot of immediate attention from collectors.
Thanks again to everyone who so thoughtfully contributed your wisdom; it is appreciated more than you know!
You could watermark your photo. If he’s already stolen your photo, then he has an un-watermarked copy. Still, a watermarked version on your own listing might help you make a case with eBay if it comes to that. There might also be an argument that part of your body (the tattoo) is being shown in someone else’s photo….that could more persuasive than the theft of the inventory photo.
Sorry this happened to you; it really is maddening. Tonight, while researching a china pattern on Replacements, I found a picture that I’d taken of a salad plate on their site! It is a very rare antique pattern and they have none of them in stock so they must have trolled eBay for a photo and found and copied mine. I was really surprised that a reputable company like Replacements would do that without asking permission. I’m debating whether to challenge them on it but in this case, I have derived so much benefit from their service over the years, I’m feeling a bit more charitable than I would with another eBay seller.
Unfortunately, eBay can’t or won’t do anything about stolen photos. However, if your thief responds with profanity, eBay definitely will take action on that. That will make you feel like something has been done!01/23/2017 at 10:21 pm in reply to: Should we build a stick & frame building, or a metal building #11002
Thank you for all the detail on the costs of your building! I am jealous as I’ve been pondering eBay storage solutions for years. Unfortunately, I live in a town where the building code requires a brick facade for anything bigger than a shed. There’s a battle brewing right now with regard to a neighbor who recently built a large (very nice looking) metal shop building without the city’s blessing. Everybody else wants one too but we’ve all been told “Nyet!” So I’m stuck with rental storage…pretty sickening to think about the HUGE storage building I could have built with all the rent money I’ve paid over the years.
