Thanks, I totally found it on Ebay. Has not been sold yet.
Thank you, kindly, Temudgin!
I know nothing Chinese characters. I am always afraid of putting upside down. And so, I did! ugh. Thanks to Antique Frog and PDX_Cindy. That helps.
Yay they worked. The plate is 7.5″
AntiqueFrog, Thanks for that link. Geez, Who knew?? That is a great resource for masks! Sharyn, “For work…I traveled to an Indonsian island…”-wow! That’s great. I only travel to the post office. 🙂 Sure wish I could have a job where I could see the world. Okay, maybe after the pandemic. Amatino, thanks for your input too. These resources and comments sure help with trying to decide how to list these.
I have these 3 masks. Not sure what they are worth. Not sure if all are African. There are so many variations of these, not sure if these are Pier 1 type masks, or the real deal. Any mask experts or any one with any experience selling these? Not sure what to price them at. Sure don’t want to over price, if it’s something like Cost Plus, Pier 1, etc.
I just received an email from etsy that they have me in their cue, and should expect them to reach out to me in 5-7 days. No bueno.
In my chat with Etsy, they referred me to another department. Said they would email me when they got to me in the cue. Really? See. This is where ebay is so much better than etsy. This is the reason I would rather ask the forum members here, rather than deal with etsy. I see this as an etsy fail. Any how. I have not yet heard from them (etsy0. This buyer has done nothing I requested, no pics, poor communication, and now she has damaged my fabric. I guess I’ll refuse to refund her money, but I’ll send her this fabric back at her expense. I cannot sell fabric with smells of cat urine and cigarettes. I can only imagine her retaliation for HER damaging my fabric.
I am chatting with etsy right now. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks Jay
My personal experiences with Walmart online have been less than impressive. I can’t imagine I’m the only one.
I once ordered 10 yds of fabric. Received 10 yards-of the wrong fabric. Two days later, received another 10 yards. Of the wrong fabric. Called Walmart. Was told to keep it. Okay…a week later received the correct fabric. The next day another shipment of the correct fabric. All told, I received 40 yards for the price of 10. Fast forward, June 25, 2020 I placed an order on Walmart.com. Canceled it within 24 hours online. A day later I chatted with Walmart, just wanting to make sure the order was canceled, as I had a bad feeling. I was assured it was canceled. Still did not have a good feeling. Chatted another 2-3 days later, just to make sure. Was again assured it was definitely canceled. Still not convinced, I called Walmart about 2-3 days again. The agent stated that she would call the shipper to have them hold the package. All told, I received the package. sigh.
I won’t even get into receiving my refund, but it was worse than trying to get the order canceled. The only reason I finally received the refund when I did, was because I had to threaten to file a complaint with the Attorney General’s consumer fraud department. The money was in my account 3 days later (August 21-2 months later), 1 day ahead of my threatened “If I don’t have my money in my account by…” date. I digress.
Jay and Ryanne, always look forward to the podcasts! I’m always so sad when they are in the 40 minute range. You should have seen my face when you said “This podcast is ending in 3,2,1..” I was caught off guard!
Anyhow, I’m not a coffee drinker anymore, but I kinda wish I was. I always do like the smell of coffee though. If you two ever come back to Chicago, you will have to try the place in my neighborhood. Supposedly it’s a world class coffee roaster/house, thingy. I can’t vouch for it, haven’t tried it. They roast the coffee in another location, a block away.
retrotreasures, I have always loved Halloween. As such, I look at Halloween all year long. I don’t see a “cutoff” date. Also, I specialize in selling Halloween/Day of the Dead fabrics on etsy-so there’s that. I was really happy to see that all of retail jumped onboard early this year to merchandise Halloween! August, if you think about it, is not too early. I’m hoping since trick-or-treating will be limited this year (or at least I suspect), that folks will do up more than usual. There are some “usual suspects” in my neighborhood who go all out decorating their front lawns (very limited space in my neighborhood) creatively. I always look forward to that.
I have not been sourcing. There is 1 thrift store by me that I have been to a few times. Did not really buy anything. I am sticking to my “sell what you have-get rid of those death piles” momentum that I’ve been pretty good at since the beginning of the year (pre-pandemic). Of course during the first few months of the quarantine, my sales soared, but since I’m not really listing, it is showing in my sales. Really slow, random sales in my ebay store. Etsy is a bit better, but I really need to step up my game on ebay.
I know Ryanne and Jay were saying in this weeks podcast that summer sales are slow, but jeesh! My sales are reallllly slow!
Could you sell as movie props and still make a profit? Might be worth a shot. I’m just thinking of the movie “Weird Science”. I too know nothing about the items you mentioned, but sometimes people use different keywords and voila, you have a sale! Good luck.
Omg. icequeen, I recently gave away a ginormous contractors bag of Tupperware. I have never liked Tupperware, did not like going to demonstrations, did not like drinking out of plastic cups, eating out of those plastic plates, etc. lol. When I look at some of the prices that stuff goes for! I know some was valuable, I just did not want it around.
Thanks for the bolos though. I’ll look out for some of the Star Wars stuff for sure.
