I've acquired a few pieces of this pattern over the years, but I haven't sold any of it because I don't know who made it.  It's not the typical Moon and Stars pattern, and it looks like maybe someone like Indiana/Tiara might have made it.  Would appreciate help on pattern name and manufacturer if possible.  Thanks.

POTTERY - Need help with Blue Willow Mark

Not sure if these 2 iron panels with engraved mirrored pieces are parts of a gate or transom or just decorative panels meant to be hung on a wall. The mirrored pieces do appear old (1930s?). Not sure what to make of this. They are 4' tall. Your opinions wanted! Thanks!

There are so many different Fenton patterns, manufacturing dates, etc. that it makes my head hurt.  I recently acquired this Fenton green hat vase and need help in regard to:  1) Actual pattern name or what it would be called--Fenton green (emerald) cased glass?;  2) Manufacturing timeframe; and 3) Even though I know the cased glass MIGHT be white based on the fact that it is laid over a green glass, the cased glass really has more of a gray or blue/gray color to it, so is the cased glass actually white or could it be an experimental with a gray casing?  It measures approximately 3" in overall height. HELP!!!!!

Good morning everyone.



New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

I have this bracelet I can't figure out. The metal is very oxidized, was nearly black,,thought it was copper due to its darkness but it is silver in color and obviously has a high copper content judging by the darkness of the metal before polishing. The settings are what I am unsure of - they clink like glass - when you look at the backs, though, it looks poured, and at the same time, enameled - there are speckles in the surface along with a fingerprint in one of them. Does anyone know what this technique is? Thanks --

Technique on old bracelet?

I know it isn't antique, but I'm wondering if there's a way to figure out the time frame for this rug. I'm thinking the colors make it "newer," but I don't know how new. The previous owner was recently moved to an assisted living home & she had very electic tastes, including southwest items.


I borrowed the book "Navajo Rugs...." by Don Dedera from the library, looked at a bunch of videos on YouTube & researched the Internet, but still unsure about the age of the rug.


The rug is a beauty & in pristine condition. It's about 62" x 48". I do love the colors, especially the teal /turquoise around the border. Any thoughts about age, or anything else would be very much appreciated.

This bracelet caught my eye from the batch the other day.  It's mostly enameled on brass but there is a raised wire design in certain areas.  Not sure it would qualify as Cloisonne?  Also, I'm seeing sort of a Celtic design but I'm also seeing a hint of Asian.  I appreciate any help in describing this bracelet, and thanks as always!

Possible D&E Earrings?

I inherited my grandmother's great-grandmother's silk shawl - she came to Oregon from Scotland in the 1840s. I'm terrified! I want to take good care of it, I'd love to clean it but I have no idea how it would hold up or who I could trust to professionally clean it. I have considered maybe seeing if a museum would want it. I am looking for advice on caring for it and possibly cleaning it. The embroidery is superb, there is no back to it really I will attach photos of both sides, and the stains I wish I could remove. The ancestor to who it belonged had some small historical significance in Oregon, Isabella Miller Moar was her name.

150+ year old silk shawl care and cleaning

Can anyone tell me about this? Is it valuable?

I looked on eBay under tapestries with Middle Eastern and saw single squares, but none stitched together & none with camels and elephants & horses.

This is a middle east tapestry, correct?

Judging by the little moth holes I'm assuming it's old - does that make it valuable?

Any help in decribing it or what to list it as would be greatly appreciated.

I believe it is all copper, not sure on the red beads, coral maybe. Definately hand made, possibly Native American but really not sure.

Item not received

I have bought a suspiciously cheap tablet today (item 121775582570), and the listing was soon completely removed from eBay.


I would like to cancel the purchase because I am pretty sure it's a scam, but when I go to eBay's online Customer service/resolution center it doesn't work.


If I go through the steps shown on the help page (Buying -> After your purchase -> Cancel a purchase), it shows a list of items I bought, but as soon as I select it, it shows a message claiming I am "not buying that item". The software is probably "confused" since the item doesn't exist anymore (although it's weird eBay allows a listing to be completely obliterated after selling it to more than 100 people?)


eBay customer service page claims I haven't bought the item, right after I select it from the list of bought items


My Paypal indicates that the payment was processed, and, the item is still shown in my Purchase history (but it has no image anymore).


What am I doing wrong?

So for some reason usps has lost or sent to the dead mail center about 5 of my items and one of which was returned to me. So I printed a new shipping label and gave it to someone to ship off for me today but just now going through my old postage labels I was trying to void the old ones when I accidentally voided the new one!!! That and I'm desperately trying to pay my ebay fees while I do a weird transfer bank account/paypal balance thing with my paypal and it keeps getting declined and I'm losing my mind! Now they've sent me this e-mail talking about missuse of labels or fraudulent something and I don't know what to do!!! I've e-mailed ebay I've emailed usps I've emailed paypal I'm running out of options. Heres the forwarded e-mail.

I have been selling scince 2011 and have recenly come across a problem when I send photos to members in a private message.. I do custom vinyl decals or stickers and I like to send a pic of the custom item completed prior to listing to make sure the buyer is satified with there product. But I take a pic and upload it as a attchment in the message section it shows or of proportion and does not show the image as it was taken.. Tried lowering the size of pic but it keeps doing it... When ever the buyer would click the picture the overlay appears but photo is not correct and show improper size..... I want the buyer to be able to see the decal as it looks not out of porportion... gives a false decsciption when the pic is falsly accuate..... I also tried numerous browsers with the same outcome.....

Halloween charms

I was looking through my TL user file directory, and noticed that old photos are still saved in the databases for items long-ago exported and deleted from the program.  Is this something I should look into fixing, or should I ignore the orphaned entries?


I haven't had any major problems with TL - just the normal hiccups, and a few random crashes.  I certainly don't want to mess it up, with the holiday selling season just starting.


A few examples:


1.  A brown creamer sold earlier this year.  Listed exported and deleted from TL in March:




2.  Crystal lamp parts sold in 2012 - listing exported and deleted from TL in June 2013.




3.  These owl salt & pepper shakers were sold in 2014.  Listed exported & deleted from TL in July 2014.  The glass goblets in this same folder are current items - which seems rather weird.




4.  This chicken dish lid was sold sometime in 2010.  I can't find its listing record, but I'm assuming it was exported & deleted that year or early 2011.




5.  These little glass dishes have been floating around my TL databases since at least 2009.  I had completely forgotten about them, and can't find their exact sale date.  I'm guessing they were sold sometime in 2009 - I do remember now that it was during my first year selling (which started summer of 2008).




Like I said, just a few examples, out of many more not shown.  Also, I found multiples of several of the items pictured scattered about in various folders in both the "iansnanatexaslisting" database folder and the "user000" datase folder.  For example, the owl shakers were in 4 different folders, all with different numbers and dates.


Any adivce?  Thanks for your time.

TurboLister photo storage - corrupted?

I just recently purchase a highboy that I intend to keep indefinitely.  The problem I have is whether or not I should refinish it myself or have a pro do it depending if its rare.  Im pretty sure it was designed by Albert Parvin; however, there is little to no info on his pieces to go on other than previously sold items on 1stdibs so im on the fence.


Major Issues:


1. Previous owner was a picker and threw on PU haphazardly in order to sell quickly (DRIP MARKS)

2. The LEFT cabinet door has wood epoxy that need to be recovered with veneer

3. The hinge joints are not original on the LEFT cabinet door (already ordered replacements)


Other than that its in good condition: sturdy, light scratching that can we sanded out, dings that I can live with


If its not something rare/desireable, then ill do the work myself. Any info on the piece or opnions would be gratly appreciated .

I believe this is older Delft since it is definitely handpainted not transfer ware. It is 15" across. The mark is kind of smudged. Just wondering if anyone has seen this before? Thanks, all! And by the way, I looked in Kovels but with the mark being illegible, it's impossible to know what to look for.

Home & Garden discussion



I recently bought an iPhone that was advertised as clean and clear for activation on the Sprint network, was a white 32gb iPhone 5C in great condition other than minimal use, and had a clean ESN/MEID ... The only thing true about the phone was the color and the cosmetic condition of it! The phone was only 16GB and it was reported lost/stolen when I went to the Sprint store. Smiley Sad This was literally the third phone I'd purchased on eBay that had some kind of defect, but the other sellers quickly resolved the problem and I was refunded. However, with this latest purchase, the seller has been extremely slow to respond to any messages and comes across as anything but concerned about the defective device. (For the record, I finally found a phone on Craigslist and met the seller AT a Sprint store where he stayed and waited until I could solidly confirm that the phone was in great shape! --- I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a used phone btw, too... hate to say it but after three bad attempts, it's frustrated me to the point of no return <no pun intended> as far as buying used cell phones here).... Anyway, I ended up paying $175 for a beautiful white iPhone 5S 64gB - less than I paid for a 16gig 5C (which was falsly advertised as a 32gig with a bad MEID! Crazy! lol)


Anyway, back to the problem, I requested a refund and the seller slowly and begrudgingly accepted. I was offered a shipping label (economy) but I wanted to get my refund faster so I purchased a flat rate expedited shipping label from the post office. Unfortunately, I never did get to the post office the day I created that label (and subsequently added its tracking number to the refund/not as described case I'd opened here on eBay. 


I did manage to get the item shipped and have the new tracking number. The item has arrived according to the USPS tracking number I have, but there doesn't seem to be any place to put the tracking number on the case details. I did add a "note" under the 'purchased items' section of my account but I think that area may just be for my own use - not sure if anyone else sees it. I also sent a message to the seller providing this information to him. Of course he hasn't responded in any way and I only have my tracking number to go by. The case still shows the old tracking number and nothing has escalated, though the device was returned to him at 2PM Sat Oct 3, 2015. 


So where does this put me with my refund status? If the incorrect tracking number is in the case details and there is no way to update that information, am I still protected my eBay's guarantee? I paid nearly $200 for this phone and I'm feeling like I'm being ignored by the seller - and when I go to help/contact on eBay, I have to go through so many steps that all just lead to an article or 'helpful video' ... nothing helps with the problem I have and I don't know how to get ahold of eBay. Can someone please advise me on this? I need to be sure I get my refund and without guidance from 'the powers that be' in eBay, I fear I won't get the refund - and even worse, the seller will have made a profit off of nothing and could likely list the same phone again!


I'm just frustrated and need help. Thanks to anyone who has any advice. 


Here's some screen shots to better explain the problem. I've covered any information about the seller for their protection at this point. Also I added my own descriptive notes in red. Hopefully this helps explain better than my rambling! Thanks again!

EAPG Paneled Celery Vase ID Help

Found this today. It is LARGE and stunning in person. I found 2 comparables. One here on eBay, sold item # 151817728485. The seller says "MONET BOOK PIECE, ONE OF THE FAMOUS BRITHERS PREMIER HAUTE COUTURE PIECES."  I Googled Brithers Premier and found nothing so I am wondering if anyone might know what the seller is talking about or if they know what book this may be in. I found the same necklace on betsy but no mention of books or Brithers. 


I am also wondering if this is 80's, 90's or even newer?


Here are some pics.  Thanks!

Help w/Vintage Poster Signature

hello everyone,


Recently i would like to purchase a skirt from 7 for all mankind, and i found this skirt pretty cute but doubt if it's authentic after reading some authenticating articles at the forum.

1, from front image, cannot tell whether it's fake or not as the button at the center front is written"SEVEN FOR ALL MANKIND" ->forum said auth should have these wordings.

2, the last image is the most suspicious one as the center back logo print looks too rubberish, the i also read that if the logo shows "TM" instead of "A CIRCLED R", it is a fake.

3, I have messages the seller and the seller has guaranteed this skirt is authentic..

could somebody help me to authenticate this skirt is really from 7 for all mankind?? thanks!!

I purchased a lovely porcelain handpainted portrait in a Gutta Percha frame at an estate sale.  The potrait is marked on the back with very faded pencil and a red stamp mark.  The markings are so faded that they are illegible.  I'm hoping someone may recognize the mark on back despite its fading.  The frame is dated 1855 but unsure if the painting dates to the same timeframe.  Thanks for any help you can lend.

So minor annoyance, I recieved an item that wasn't what was listed and I recieved a refund. Weeks after the refund whenever I go onto my ebay it still shows "unpaid" item as a reminder. I've looked at return status and everything to find a way to remove the reminder since I recieved a refund but nothing. Am I stuck with a reminder saying to pay for an item I returned ?

When I acquired this pitcher or vase, I was pretty sure it might be Blenko.  However, according to characteristics of Blenko, it should have a pontil mark on the bottom, which it doesn't.  However, the color seems to match up with Blenko colors produced, the bubble pattern is similar to theirs, the design seems correct, and this piece is pretty transparent.  Could it be Blenko designed by Wayne Husted?  The vase measures 8" in height, 6.5" approximately in width, and 3" in depth.  Any help would be appreciated.

What is the best time to start selling nut crackers and vintage décor? I'm not sure but maybe if you start too soon, it will cost in relists? If you wait too late the market will be fierce. Also how long will the system hold listings not yet published and how many can you fill without publishing them.? Oh, this is without a store! Any experienced holiday sellers want to share? Thank you in advance.

I won an auction were the shipping tab clearly states that shipping is free to the United States, but got charged $22 for shipping anyway. Just won this morning so I didn't pay yet.


Typing this item id should take you to the original listing: 191699765512


In the description it states the following :
"Please US customers free shipping this by ebay restrictions, ask your freight cost after the purchase.
Just give your bid if you agree to this term. Thank you."


I did not need to "ask" anything because a few minutes later I received an invoice in the "Purchased Items" area,
and the "free shipping" was replaced by $22.00 US.
What "restrictions", per their description prevented them from correctly listing the shipping?
Oh, and I went back to the original listing to check what I would have paid if I was in Canada or France
(both being farther from the seller's Brazil than me in the US):
Canada had and still is listed for $22 as is France - but US is still clearly "free"?????
So he knew the shipping price for France but was "restricted" from properly posting the US Price???????


I already contacted eBay and they made me ask the seller to contact them before asking for new invoice.
I am willing to pay my win bid, but not the extra shipping.
They also said I should "cancel" within 48 hrs. if I can't resolve the issue in order to avoid "unpaid item" claim.
I wrote seller what eBay told me: he needs to contact eBay

Response was:
hello friend only for you to understand the problem does not know why leaves only enter the value of $ 4 for shipping in the games category, the amount I am charging is exactly my freight cost for your address if you do not agree okay to cancel otherwise we can follow with the payment and shipping the product, just remembering that the description in the auction made it clear to just give your bid if you agree with this term ... I do not want problems'm just trying to be fair.


Now what? He could only enter $4 for US but could enter $22 for CANADA - sounds like BS. Besides that is NOT my problem. HE should have contacted eBay about it and I had written him to tell it to eBay, but he obviously didn't.

Thank you in advance for your time in reading and commenting on this.

Sorry if I am out of the loop, but I just went to mail a "medium flat rate package" and the cost was up over a dollar increase. Did I miss something?? Did the USPS prices go up October 1, 2015 or is it a glitch in Ebay's system!! I hope the latter, postage is already killing sales!

I was looking over my seller page and there was a link to view Paypal transaction.  I followed the link that led me to my Paypal account and said a buyer had been refunded $119 for something that I had received positive feedback on and there was never a request for a refund.  To make matters worse,  the item was shipped to Italy.  I have tracking numbers showing the item got to Kentucky and then it shows it was undeliverable in Italy.  However no one notified me and buyer 's feedback is "Great customer care; fast shipment; excellent!!!!!!!"


Ebay says there was never a case opened so they can't do anything about it.  Paypal says the money was refunded.  My Paypal account says it was refunded.  Paypal has backed me up twice on this.  Ebay refuses to acknowledge what happened because there was never a case opened.  I have spent three hours on the phone today with Ebay and couple yesterday with Ebay and Paypal.  I don't know what else to do.  Please help.

 So my "buyer " made a counteroffer which I accepted then shipped-Ooops the guy thinks I tricked him into purchasing by shipping before he paid. OH BOY! I tried to explain that his good feedback let me trust him and that mailing quick was just a service and convienience. The contract was made by HIM and he tricked himself by not knowing what all this fancy bidding was all about. I told him that my deals are never tricky and that all he had to do is return the purchase. So now my good deed has been thoroughly punished and the poor guy still maintains that I tried to trick him and so " I was going to buy it but now I never will" OMG is there some sort of informational candy gram that could gently educate a buyer without incuring wrath and negative feedback. I always accept returns-  no  matter what. I just don't want this guy to continue to misthink the bidding/offer process and hurt himself or others. What say you?

Selling question

I sold a human hair wig recently to a buyer.

I had a conversation with them through eBay messages for an ongoing of four days before they decided to purchase.

I answered all their questions regarding the item and even the price and whatnot.


They decided to purchase two days ago, the 29th of September and I shipped the wig.

The tracking states that it left my local USPS facility and its on the way to the destination.


I received a message today from the buyer stating that they want to return the item when they get home which is on Monday apparently, for a refund due to them being in the hospital after a miscarriage and needing the money for medical bills. Call me rude or whatnot, but I honestly do not believe this story.

I stated that I do not provide refund/returns in large size font  in bold lettering at the bottom of the description along with on the listing.

I know the horror stories of eBay siding with the buyer and whatnot, but this isn't a case where they don't like the item or the item isn't as described.


I am aware of the buyer may leave me negative feedback, which in this case I honestly do not care because that was the last item I had for sale and I don't plan to purchase or sell on eBay anymore; so please do not mention the risk of receiving negative feedback and whatnot.


I'm planning to message them back kindly stating that I do not accept refunds/returns and that I directed them to read my description (which includes the large bold words of "no refunds/returns" before their purchase.


Is there a better way to handle this kind of buyer?

Thank you everyone in advance.

Have a bag that someone wants to return.

Ebay giving away defects like Haloween Candy makes me hesitant to accept it. 

How can a bag "not Fit" ? The strap on the Coach is not adjustable - yet a 21" drop was stated in the listing. It is a cross  body bag.


This bag is becoming like the plague to me. This will be the second return. The last one claimed it smelled like cigarettes - impossible it was in A/C storage for 5 years. 

Seriously wondering if ebay is worth the effort.

Defects & DSR's

So, here's what happened:

I bought a 3DS XL on eBay that was maufacturer refurbished, still-in-the-box. I got it, was very pleased, everything was as described, and I left positive feedback.


A month went by, and then yesterday I started having problems with some of the device's features; so i called Nintendo for tech support. They told me that my device+account had been banned because the person who originally bought the 3DS from Nintendo had filed a chargeback! Therefore my device technically hadn't been paid for, so they considered it "stolen" and required me to pay for the system myself in order to lift the ban. I did, and the total came to $135, which is $5 more than i paid for it in the first place.


As you may have guessed, i'm not too happy about the situation at all, and i want to get a refund, but i don't know how to proceed!!!  I DON'T want to return the 3DS, since I've already put a lot of time and expense into it.  The seller himself doesn't accept returns, but if i try to file a return through the eBay Money Back Guarantee system, I'm afraid that i'll get roped into sending the system back. Plus, i don't know how to proove that any of this really happened! Can anybody steer me in the right direction?????

To return ? Do I get a defect? I have had to fight defects I have been given - one said they did not receive a package - I had a signed receipt from two weeks before they complained. My error was using lower cae letter in the tracking.  So amidst clearing it up in 10 minutes and guess what the guy had a signed receipt I still got a defect. Then there was the alleged buyers remorse - smell " issue. Still have one because a package was knocked about while being shipped by USPS and a candlestick broke- The buyer did not inform the post office and accused me of sending him a broken item. The box had a hole in it. He did not report it to the post office and sent it back in another box. I feel so burned. Have sepnt at least 4 hours with ebay getting this off. Lost my Power Seller too. Sigh 


Shipping & Returns discussion

I was the first bidder on an item with an initial minimum bid of $9.99.  I entered a maximum bid of $12.30, thinking it would go in at $9.99 initially, then rise as needed to my maximum amount.  But, the bid immediately showed up as a first bid of $12.30.  Do "maximum bids" not work with first bids?


Supplemental info:  First, an admission:  The item price was $.99, and my bid was $1.23.  Same scenario, but I wasn't sure "the community" would be willing to help some dweeb bidding on a 99 cent item (# 252103915568).  Based on your very kind and thorough responses, I'm sure I underestimated you!  Anyway, I looked at the bid history, and saw that my $1.23 bid was the first bid, but it somehow triggered a $.99 automatic bid from another bidder.  So, now my question is, how does one enter an automatic bid at the initial bid amount without the bid showing at the initial bid amount!?

       hi all,


                  has anyone noticed an Automatic Payment is submitted to PayPay when the "PAY NOW !" logo is clicked on

                 on the "You have won " 'page


                 Even if the   Buyer HAS'NT proceeded any further with the Transaction at that point in time.


               I could'nt work out how this was happenin ( at least 4 times )   I really started to consider ..... am I goin' nutz !


             And then, I was informed by eBay / PayPal  that I had opted for a Auto / Turbo Payment method .   ehhh !


             To my knowledge....... HOBBY SEARCH (Japan ) was the ONLY Business that I had opted for this Payment Method .


            I have deactivated the Payment Method much to the dismay of HOBBY SEARCH...coz it is a great Payment Method

            and  as I trust  them explicitly  to carry out  a courteous  Transaction.


            And  NO !.....  Buyers CANNOT nominate who they want to have the PayPal Automatic Payment System   just who applied to . !

Selling question

Hey guys,

So, I started selling here recently on eBay and after making my first GTC listing i decided to open a store. I wanted the reduced price for final value fees, I notice that it doesn't reduce it with my existing listing. Is there any way aside from ending the listing to get it to reduce? Like maybe when it renews in a few days? I don't want to lose the view history and sales record. Thanks!


I know i am paying a monthly subscription for the store, yet it's not with the number of listing but rather the volume on the Final Value Fee. 10% vs 6%, saves me $4-$5 per listing. Which pays for itself in 3-4 sales. Which then it's all added profit from there.

So I entered a question about ten minutes ago but couldn't find out how to reply to an answer so here goes. I want to purchase two items from one seller. When I have both in my shopping cart, one dissappears. When I remove the other one, it stays but I can't check them both out at once. I know I could order them separately, but then my shipping costs will increase.

Can't pay for one item

Hi, I want to lower the price of something I have for sale, I know I can revise the listing and lower the price. Is there a way to have it show in the listing with a WAS price and a NOW price.

I have seen this on other sellers listings.

So I was wondering if there is a way to do it or is this just for ebay stores?

Thanks !

Was price

I have a problem. I bought an item, a perfume. I paid for it and everything, but I didnt sign in with my account, I proceeded to my purchase as a guest. Now, I didnt receive a confirmation that they shipped the item and it has been more than 5 days. What can I do? I have all the info on my email, confirmation number, transaction number but no confirmation that it has been shipped. PLEASE HELP Smiley Sad

I'm sorry but I dont speak english very well.

I mean, Do you charge additional cost in auction "buy it now" if I would like to make changes in the prices.

fees in change price in auctions

All of my buy-it-now items have free shipping on them. For the books I'm using Media Mail because of how heavy (and expensive) books can be. Last night I listed some school books and thought about the options that a buyer had if they wanted it shipped quicker and wanted to pay for it themselves.


I saw this option today on a product I was looking at that was listed as "free" shipping, but then in the cart screen (when it came time to pay), there was a dropdown for additional shipping options. How do I know if this is active with my listings, or is this an option that I need to turn on? Can someone help to clarify this for me?


I searched through the community listings but didn't find anything that explained or described this.


Thank you (in advance) for reading and responding.

Shipping & Returns question

 I recently purchased an item that came with two batteries. One of the batteries turned out to be defective. I contacted the seller and was told to contact the manufacturer and have them determine that said battery is defective. Then contact the seller again with the name and info of the person I spoke to at the manufacturing company so, they could  in turn call the company and verify what I had reported ( to the seller). Then if they learned the battery was defective they'd replace it. I'd like to change the feedback that I left the seller. Can I do that and should I do it?

revising feedback

I already have five months I made a bid to several articles about one seller auctions and win in almost all.
At my negligence I could not make the payment, ebay gave me a "temporary" sanction to bid again.
When I can go back to doing ?, so far I have tried and not let me.
Thank you!
