We always bag our items before storing together. If I’m putting knives with clothing they are already bagged so no issues. So you use smaller bins. Cool. To each his own.
Mike – lately with dishes we put that thin foam between each plate and then wrap the whole thing with cling wrap. It holds it all together very tightly and it is almost ready to ship. Got a big roll of wrap from Sam’s and wouldn’t want to be without it. And since it is clear you can still tell which dishes they are.
That’s too funny! Yeah, definitely a drop shipper. Well, if the item you wanted to buy from him is drop-shippable then that means you might be able to find it cheaper from another online retailer. It wasn’t a one-of-a-kind vintage item was it? If new, then others are probably selling it.
Go to google.com, click on images, then click on the little camera icon and it will direct you to upload your photo. Good luck!
Mike you are exactly right. If we bin something heavy like a pile of dishes we are sure to fill the rest of the bin with something light like baseball caps. We even will deliberately put like items AWAY from other like items since it would be too easy to pick & pack the wrong one. This happened to us when we had two camo hoods listed and put them in the same bin. The wrong one got sent and then we had the whole nightmare of getting it back and sending the correct one. Luckily the buyer was super cool about it.
No idea, looks very specialized. Have you done a reverse image search on google?01/26/2017 at 1:59 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 294: Finding the Valuable Caches and Going All In #11222
We got a box of these advertising posters for $3 at an auction and we’ve been selling them for $5 a piece. So far sold about 10 of them:
I don’t think you should put like items in their own bin. Mix it up so long as you aren’t putting an anvil on top of crystal champagne flutes. Reason being if a bunch of like items sold and you don’t have any more to put into the bin then you’ve got a half empty bin taking up valuable space. We just bin every item as it is photographed, I jot down the bin number on my listing sheet, and the bin number goes into the Note field (along with the item cost).
Since we use clear bins it is easy to see which have space available in them. That way we only start a new bin when more room is actually needed.
Also, we just use sequential numbers for the bins. No need for H1B6, A1C2 and all that.
Another time we had to cancel a Born leather sandal order was because the shoes were moldy. They were fine but the footbed was dirty when we got them. I washed them really well and they were looking practically new again. I was kinda proud of myself. But… I put them away before they were completely dry and they molded. Argh! That was a rookie mistake for sure and it cost us our TRS status for a while. But I do agree with Jay that if this seller has figured out a way around the system then he has probably done this far too often.
I would let it go and not try to get them in trouble. Partly because it has happened to us that a couple things sold on Bonanza (Bonanza never notified us), and also sold on ebay a little while later. I had to cancel the ebay transactions. Also, once we broke a vintage casserole dish while packing it, so had to cancel that one too. Just a bit of bad luck can give you enough defects to lose your TRS status especially if you haven’t been selling long.
We’ve called ebay several times on this hoping to get someone to understand. Now they are saying that I should have never accepted the return, even though they told me to and kept sending emails about it. Instead of accepting the return they are saying that I should have just asked for the photos and then done nothing. I would’ve done that if they’d said so, but then I kept getting those semi-threatening emails. *sigh* The guy is an experienced buyer AND seller so he knew what he was doing.

Here are some things we sold this week:
Bought this for a buck at a yard sale:
Vintage ornaments, also paid $1 for:
This was $5 at the auction, no one wanted it. Luckily it comes apart easily and just screws together so shipping was a breeze:
Something we just had around the house:
This was about 50 cents. I would’ve never thought to list something like this except for Ryanne’s teaching, Thanks Ryanne!
Got these at a rummage sale for $1:
Another thing I would’ve never thought to sell except for Jay & Ryanne. Paid $1 at a rummage sale:
Here’s a crazy sale. Did I post this before, can’t remember. Sold for $50 and paid about 25 cents:
Sales seem to have picked up in these last couple of days, yay!
I never could figure out how to get an accurate inside shoe measurement. It just seems so easy to get wrong, and another thing to make INAD easier for the buyer. And the outside width seems unhelpful since many shoes have outer soles that are wider than the inside of the shoe, e.g. wingtips. I buy shoes on ebay too and I find that a lot of sellers don’t put up enough photos. I especially am looking for shoes with a wide toe box and if you don’t get a photo looking straight down at the top of the shoes it’s very hard to tell how wide the toe box is. Just my 2 cents.
Ok, maybe it IS a pudding basin.
