Oh, and I got a BO of $10 for these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MESE:IT and http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MESE:IT from the same person, but they have free shipping, so when it's all said and done, I might make 10-12 on them...I'm gonna think about them until tomorrow, but I've seen mugs just like these go for at least $15 each, and one of the exact ones went for more than what I'm asking...The guy is definitely interested though, because he messaged me about both of them asking if they were in perfect condition, etc., so I'm thinking this will complete his set or something...

Oh!! And Boy scout uniforms!! I listed it as an auction 2 days ago, and it has a bid for $14.99 already!! Has 5 days left! I paid a DIME for it!!! =D
I LOVE those mugs! Everyone in my DH's family are big Wallace and Gromit fans, we love watching it. Maybe if you wait him out a couple of days he will up the offer.

What a little brat.
you either ship the shoes back, get your refund (as long as they aren't toe jam infested) or you stop harassing me about your $12 shoes and move on with life.
Beh!!!
I'm not familiar w/extortion cases...is that considered a threat of negative feedback and that's against the rules or something? I hope you finally get done with that lady!!

Do you have a vacuum sealer? I just fit a super puffy parka in a fre today by vacuum sealing it with my cheapie ziplock vacuum thing and a gallon size bag. Or get a two gallon ziplock, fold up the shirt and then sit on it to get the air out more.

What about giving him the option of if he would like to wait a few days etc or prefer you to ship quicker but more $$?

But if you are not sure it would fit in the FRE then that would just delay it and then it may NOT fit in. I have the padded ones and I have a size 18 justice hoodie that I'm going to try to fit in and even that will be super tight!

Oh and the air vacuum thing - you can also just use a target bag etc and then use your vacuum cleaner to suck the air out.

Beh!!!

That is so horrible, she WORE them for a day!! I understand if they don't fit etc, but you cannot wear a pair of shoes for a whole day and then ask for a refund.

In comparison, I have a lady who bought some kid boots, clarks, well they don't fit her DD, so she asked to return them and is super nice about it, hasn't even mentioned shipping etc, is happy enough to be able to return.

Did you try rolling it up, or doing the big ziploc with a vacuum to get the air out trick?

Ooo, a threat! Now she must answer to Ebay! hehehe...unless they say, "She was just telling you she wanted to resolve it!" She worded it tricky, but it definitely looks like a side-handed threat to me!

I LOVE getting feedback! I wish it emailed us when we get it...I had THREE left for me today!! (Just as I was getting worried!) Now I need to go leave them feedback! It's so nerve wracking every time I send something out, because even though I try REALLY hard to describe things exactly, I'm paranoid I've missed something!

That's a good idea...never would have thought of it!

Lol...totally random, but my 19 month old just came walking out of the bedroom like she owns the place! Apparently she thinks bed-time was nap time today? It just cracks me up that she just walts right out here like no big deal.

Plus like some other posters mentioned my spare bedroom is looking like a hoarders den, I really need to unload some of my "inventory."

Also the lady that I think marked my anthro shirt gave me a really good rating so I don't feel as bitter. I would have been really upset if she had given me a negative after all of my nice customer service and paying return shipping.



What a butt head... is your feedback high enough that you can take a hit? I hate buyers that try to scam sellers, it's not like the people selling are millionaires (for the most part). For some reason it's worse when you are trying to scam people who are just trying to make a little extra money vs. a big business.
Yes, I have 1054 feedback, so I could take a hit, but don't want to. LOL. I think what I will do is ask him to ship. When they arrive, if they really are half full, then I will refund his price plus whatever shipping was. I think that is fair. If not, he'll just get refunded his price. The problem is, I don't know how I'll check them!

I think the only way to tell is to install them and check the levels on the computer...which is why it's pretty suspicious that he said they are only half full supposedly before using them! Oh, and I meant to mention earlier - sometimes manufactures give you half-full toners when you buy the printers - so if they were the ones that came with a printer purchase, they very well could have been half full, but you obviously had no way of knowing that (and the strip would have been clean...).

they weren't the ones from when you buy a printer..they came in a box. It's a dual pack, so there's 2 in the box.
