Hi LL, welcome to the wonderful world of reselling. My initials are LL too. We’ve been reselling for about 5 years and it really is an adventure. Looking forward to hearing about how things compare to Oz reselling.
Here’s a similar problem that we see at least once a month: we sell something and then it appears in Drafts. It’s the strangest thing. Does anyone else work on your drafts? Could they have completed the draft and thereby relisted it?
This happened to us over a $250.00 Bosch dryer part. If you search on those terms it should come up. Long story short, I had photos of the serial number, guy sent back his used defective part, I refused to give up and eventually got our money back. It was a couple years ago. Good luck, be persistent.
I think maybe you have to call ebay to get them closed.05/19/2020 at 9:08 am in reply to: Darn Item Specifics – What “Fabric Type” is a Cotton T-Shirt? #77563
Jersey is a stretchy knit fabric.
It’s very gory.
Wow, I’d like to know what you sell to gross that much with only a 1000 item store.
Fun things: any Monty python movie, or the tv show. Jeeves and Wooster, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Little Britain, Absolutely Fabulous, Fawlty Towers, Blackadder. Many can be found on YouTube.
Upholstery fabric is usually 54 or 56 inches wide and thicker, more sturdy. I’ve sold a lot of fabric and never used pinking shears. No one has complained so you are fine with regular scissors.
I would also use “border print” in your description.
For about a year our sales have been down and I’ve thought about doing the same thing many times. But I still have a ton of things to list, and haven’t been scavenging. Oddly, this week we are selling 2 to 3 times more than usual, old stuff that I’ve forgotten about. I don’t want to claim that ebay is doing anything different, just that slumps and sales come in waves.
But doesnt Ryanne use smart post all the time? I thought she did.
I had occasionally sold things on ebay over the years. Just stuff I wanted to get rid of. Most of the time I lost money on shipping so I didn’t see how people could actually make a living doing it. About 4 years ago I stumbled upon Scavenger Life and learned about calculated shipping and weighing my items properly, adding something for packaging, etc. I simply ADORED Ryanne’s “what sold” videos. I wish she’d still do them even if just once a month or so!
It wasn’t hard to convince my husband to get into ebay. He already had a scavenger mentality and knew something about antiques. So we got into going to auctions, flea markets and yard sales. It’s always a thrill when you turn a buck into 30, 50 or even $100. Before I met him he was flipping things on rare occasions. He once went to a yard sale and bought an old desk for $10 and immediately took it a couple blocks down the road and sold it to an antique shop for $200. LOL, I love that.
Lol, are you Polish?
HI Jess – I feel exactly the same way. Small town life is hard unless you grew up there and know everybody. I’m a northerner transplanted to the south so it’s really hard for me to fit in. I’m not religious but if I was joining a local church and possibly the choir would be a great way to socialize. Seems like most churches are really social clubs anyway. I’ve been taking some local just-for-fun classes like painting, basketry and gardening. That might be an option for you.
