Yes, it’s happened to me too. I changed all my listings to “hook and loop” like Clarity did.03/07/2017 at 11:46 pm in reply to: Missed it by thhhaaatttt much! (missed out on sourcing opportunity) #14042
Was walking up the driveway of a family-run (not familiar with collectibles market) estate sale. Thought I was 10 minutes early, but they must have opened even earlier. Passed a woman coming out with vintage Pyrex in her hands. I said, “There goes Amish Butterprint.” Sigh.
Way to go! Looks great.
Yes, but I’m not sure she knew that. She was excited when I refunded her.
I agree with Jay. I was recently asked to break up a vintage flatware service for 12 because the person messaging me only needed 6. We’re talking about re-photographing 60 pieces of silverware, which isn’t the easiest. Turned out the service for 12 doesn’t come along very often and it got bid up WAY more than if I had broken it up.
Thank you. I got two messages from her supposedly attaching a photo, but it was just what looked like HTML code or something. I explained that her photos were not coming through, however, if she wanted to mail it back, I would refund her when it was received. So far, nothing. That was a few days ago. Thanks for all the input.
Hi. My mannequin is an XS size as well. I use a clothespin for the larger clothes, especially skirts. I try to make the clothes look like they would on the correct-sized person (not overly fitted or loose, etc.) If anybody is considering a mannequin purchase, I recommend the smaller sizes because larger clothes can be pinned but smaller clothes cannot be stretched.
I almost always buy up shoelaces at estate sales — that way I always have a variety of sizes and colors. I’m never charged more than about 25 cents for them.
I have seen this a lot for a long time in vintage categories.02/18/2017 at 8:51 pm in reply to: Best offer from a brand new user. I've got a fishy feeling. Potential scam? #12843
I have had lots of 0 feedback best offers not pay. I’ve decided not to accept best offers from them. More than 0 is fine.
Thanks for clearing this up. I had seen these listings when looking up Solds and thought they must be selling drugs because the listings say the shoes are well worn and smelly, yet they are at the highest price of Solds. Glad it’s not drugs!
Estate Clothing and Shoes (title)
Whole closets or individual pieces. (body)
[Pretty simple, I know. Thanks, Jay!]
In a related story, I got this message today regarding a jacket listing already described with detailed measurements:
“Will this fit a woman with a large bust comfortably (44D) 36 Waist and 44 Hips? She stands 5’3”
…I’m supposed to know if she will be comfortable in it???
I went ahead and posted a Wanted ad on Craigslist for “estate clothing and shoes.” I got a handful of responses for kids clothes, etc. Nothing remotely related to what I wanted. Any advice on wording this Wanted ad a little better? Thanks.
Has anyone ever posted a Craigslist “Wanted” for estate closet buyouts? Do you think it’s a good or bad idea?
