Hello all

 

Just recently I had an unpleasant dealing with member who purchased my item 271777084429 Breviile hemipshere mini blender

 

Upon recieving the item the buyer claimed it was not working. I told him that thats impossible because the item was tested 3 times prior to listing it. Once before thoroughly cleaning it then once after cleaning it then it was tested again before boxing it


I told the buyer to try to reset it and something might have happened in shipping, It could have been dropped but according to this member the box shows no damage. I knew that theres no way that this blender would just quit working.

 

He filed for a return request and me being an honest seller accepted the return so that I can inspect this item and make sure nothing was replaced and altered for it not to work

 

He claimed that he took it to an appliance guy and was told that the jar on those originally came in plastic, That statement alone made me sure about my doubt that this guy is pulling a fast one on me. I know for a fact that the blender came originally with a glass jar because it was bought brand new with a glass jar. Hes making it sound that the jar was replaced and it had to be wiggled for it to work. Thats his second lie right there

 

Got the item today and the first thing I noticed was the 3 big dents on the nice brush chrome base, that wasnt my concern at that point, I immidiately plugged it in and sure enough as I expected it is working. Turned the jar in every position (handle facing me , on the back and on both side) and worked every time I turn the knob. Left it off plugged in for 10 mins came back and turned it on, Its working flawlessly.did this 4 times and never fialed to work (again as I expected)

 

Inspected the whole blender and another thing that I noticed was the jar has moisture inside and has a sour smell, I know for a fact that this blender jar smells like Dawn dishwashing soap because Im the one that washed and air dried it before listing. I can guarantee that this blender was used by him or somebody in their household.

 

Ebay now wants me to refund him because I accepted the return. I told ebay I accepted the return so that I can inspect this blender , Itll be kinda hard to prove that its working properly if its not in my hands

 

This member got away with this kind of dishonesty once before and if you check his feedback that was left by a seller it states on there that this buyer was refunded by the seller and returned the wrong item.  

 

Does ebay really let crooks like this member do business on here? It is outrageous. First this buyer already lied about the item not working then on top of that ruined a very nice blender

 

Sad part is ebay is favoring this crook. I was told that because I accepted the return I have to refund him once the item is delivered. 

 

This member knows I dont take returns unless the item is not as described but to me both his scamming ways failed. The blender is working Flawlessly. We are honest people and would not sell items that doesnt work and if for some reason it is not working upon arrival and was retuned in the same condition it was in we dont have any problem giving refund

 

Any help or advice to this matter is greatly appreciated and Thank in advance

Glass - EAPG Pattern Help, please

Hello everyone,

 

My first question in the forums is for the following reason:

According to e-bay rules "If the buyer doesn't respond within 7 days, you can close the case and you'll receive a final value fee credit."

 

However in my Resolution center ebay.jpg

I'm waiting buyer to respond 9 days already and yet е-bay don't give me option to close the case. Should I wait for eternity?

Or how I'm supposed to close this case, cancel the transaction and proceed with my final value fee credit.

 

Just few notes:

- Buyer never paid the item.

- Same buyer bought 2 items from me, I've opened UPI case for the other one but I made mistake (or was too gracefull towards buyer) to open Cancel request, right after Auction was over, instead of waiting 2 days and then open second UPI case - that would be 2 consecutives UPI strikes for buyer.

- I don't want (I can't) contact e-bay by telephone to contact them directly and I find it a bit frustrating to contact them only by phone.

Hello Folks,

 

I recently purchased a rather large set of pink depression glass goblets and sherbet glasses.  The pieces have a panel optic shape in the blank and a beautiful etched design.  The etch design consists of floral band of roses and a tilted basket with flowers tumbling out.  The water goblets stand about 7" tall and the sherbet glass is approximately 3 1/4" tall.

Does anyone know the manufacturer and pattern name for this design?  I strongly suspect Tiffin as the maker, but I've been unable to find this design in any of many glass books.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

I didn't think this would be difficult to find but I am still at a loss after searching the web. Hoping you guys can help...

What are the loops for on this Lululemon top? There are five loops on both sides of the waist. What is this used for?

Also the interior has words printed on it like "love" "breathe deeply" and other positive quotes.

I can't find anything similar to it on ebay or the web to identify the type of bra or the style name. Any help is appreciated!

I always come to this jewelry board when a piece stumps me. I'm not very experienced with Schiaparelli stuff, so I guess first things first, is it authentic? What age would this fall in to and are there any book references of this piece? What kind of stones are the aurora boreals cabochons or is there a special name? There is damage to 3 beads, how much will that hurt the value? I only have 5 halves of the beads, its missing 1 half a bead which is unfortunate. How difficult is it to find replacement beads? Any help is appreciated.

I think, this is a pretty neat necklace, but not sure of age. Looking at it, now, I see Mt Fuji in the background on some of the squares, so it must be Japanese. Some squares depict a pagoda, but I haven't yet figured out what is depicted on the other squares.  A magnet doesn't stick to it, so it's not brass.

 

Would cloisonne be an accurate term for the squares, or something else? There's a spot of verdigris on the back. If that wasn't there, I don't think I'd clean it.

 

Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

Question about bar codes

Does anyone have any idea what this is? It's metal and measures about 3 3/4" long. It has a hinged lid. The estate sale dealer didn't know, but wondered if it might be snuff or tobacco related, as the estate had collections of both. There was also a pretty hefty military collection, and since I don't know what it is, I'm throwing that in there. 
Any and all help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Another Payment Bug – Contacted by 3 buyers who can’t pay:

In the last 5 days I have been contacted by three different buyers saying they were having trouble paying on either an accepted counteroffer or 2nd Chance Offers. A few mintues later they were all able to pay, without changing anything; but they still had a moment when they weren't allowed to pay.

Here is what they said:

  • I accepted your offer but eBay is saying that I need to contact you first for shipping before I can pay? (Buyer accepted a counteroffer on a Buy It Now item [Screen Print Attached])aeBayPaymentbug - smudge.jpg

 

  • Won't let me buy it for some reason. Keeps saying I have to change address or you have to change the shipping ???? (Buyer accepted a 2nd Chance Offer on a Auction)

 

  • It says I need to get a shipping estimate price for these buy it now auctions. (Buyer tired to accepted two different 2nd Chance Offers on Auctions)


I’ve been selling for over 15 years on eBay and now, out of the blue, I have gotten 3 messages from buyers about this weird error.

I have contacted ECS, but wanted to share this.  If you have had similar messages from buyers please share.

Thanks,

Hello,

 

I was given a large collection of old kitchen items a few years back that included a lot of stemware I know nothing about.  Can anyone help identify the manufacturer or pattern name of this glass?  The bowl is very thin pressed and cut glass, the stem looks like it is cut to look like it does, and the base has a cut glass leaf pattern.  The glass measures just under 8" tall.

 

Thank you in advance for any help you can give!

Hello All,

 

Maybe this post would be more appropriate in another group, but I sure do like the good results I get here, so here goes ...

I recently purchased this nice amethyst oil lamp.  The font has 9 panels with a rounded top.  The stem and base are also 9-sided.  The collar is old 2-line brass version.  If original to the lamp, the collar type would suggest the lamp was made pre-1876.  The lamp stands about 7 1/4" tall to the top of the collar and the base is approximately 3 3/4" wide.

Does anyone know the name of this lamp and/or the likely manufacturer.  To me, it has a Boston Sandwich look to it, but I haven't been able to find this lamp in any of my books.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any assistance the group can provide!

I picked these up at a flea market. I own several real Moreau table lamps, but they are in good condition compared to these and don't "feel" the same. I'm questionning whether these are true Moreaus, copies, or even from a kit. Here's why:

 

1. The metal is a dark gray and very smooth. Is this spelter?

2. I can't read the seals at the bottom of either sculpture.

3. The date 3-21-57 is written in red marker on the inside of each base.

 

Any opinions are greatly appreciated.

2) Along the right seam, near the frame is an area that is flaking. 
3) The frame has a chip out of it. There are other very minor paint chips, but very few and minor.

I am hoping someone can help me out on this art nouveau style mirror.  I found another on another site just like it only in an ivory color.  It was described as French ivory/celluloid from 1915.   I know the colors of celluloid can vary so what I am mainly interested in knowing is if it is actually an older piece.   I am guessing it is judging by the patina, wear on the handle and style of the mirror glass.  It is about 4.75" long and the mirror diameter is about 2 3/8" in diameter.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

I have been trying to find out information on this Kathe Kruse doll and so far haven't been able to find out very much information.

The foot # is 930438

 

The body is made of material and the face is hard, but I don't know what it is made of.  Any suggestions?

unfortunately the face has fine crack lines.  What is the correct term for this type of damage?

 

Can you tell what type of hair this doll has?

Kathe Kruse Boy 14" Doll; Please Help ID

 I am looking for information on this doll to list.   I know nothing about it. I recenlty inherited a storage locker that held my grandmother's belongings. I have inherited many dolls that belonged to her, my aunts and cousins. My grandmother has been gone since 1992 so this is a surprise.  I feel this may have belonged to my grandmother.   She came from a very wealthy family at the time and her father lavished her with gifts as she was the only daughter. My great Grandfather traveled around the world for business so this may possibly be from Europe.  The face is composite, paper mache like. Not composite really like one finds with dolls of the 30s.  The hands are a sort of rubber and have splits in them and some old stuffing is coming out. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Hi! I'm not sure which board would be best to post this on, so I'm starting here. Any horse lovers here? I think I have a piece of horse tack that would fit at the front of the chest of a horse.

Hi ya'll!

 

I got this piece today.  Saw it and just had to have it.  It is a bronze lizard or, more likely, a horny toad.  It is signed on the bottom, but it is really hard to make it out.  It has a bale so I think it is a pendant.  A really big, heavyIMG_8617.JPGIMG_8627.JPGIMG_8624.JPGIMG_8616.JPG pendant at 3 1/4" by 2 1/4".  It is really neat looking.

I've been looking at thrift stores for Barbie dolls--sifting through the ones that have totally mangled hair, or ruined outfits, and plucking out the good ones or ones that may only need a hair reroot. In doing so, I stumbled upon this gorgeous doll, stamped 1976 Mattel on the back of the head. However, I am unsure if the dress/ensemble she came in is the same year/the one she originally was sold with. The tag inside reads 'official Barbie fashion' and is white and pink.  Her hips are able to twist left and right, and her legs are 'squishy' and somewhat bendy. Though, the year seems a bit late to be a TNT and so does the face. Below are pictures of the Barbie and her dress.

ID'ing a Barbie and dress she's in?

In researching this vase I came across a website on Tango Glass that claims the mark on my vase was a later Harrach mark.  I am hoping someone can either confirm or clarify this.  The vase is black amethyst glass with enameled and silver overlay decorations.  It measures 7 1/4" tall, 2 7/8" across the top and 2 3/4" at the base.

 

 

 

Any help is always greatly appreciated and thank you for looking.

So this bracelet is stumping me. Tee construction feels right for art deco era, the metal is a potmetal type, has a faint silver plating, possibly rhodium, and theres lots of tiny rose cut marcasites. The clasp is foldover type, so not much help there.

Whats throwing me is the condition. All the marcasites are there (they do not appear to be prong set, but with marcasites this small Im not surprised), and they really sparkle. Other than a tiny bit of pitting to the metal on the back, the condition is really, really good. As if it was never worn, or even moved lol.

What do y'all think?

Art Deco bracelet: 20s or repro?

Hello!

 

I am back again with another question.  I recently purchase this great badge or medal.  It is two pieces with a (blank) name area at the top.  The main badge is connected by chains.  It has 10 points and has the letters HHC in the center.  I have googled and googled but I dont find anything like this. 

 

Anyone have any ideas?  Is it military.

 

Thank you as always for your time.

Help with Signature on Serigraph?

PARIS (AP) — The co-pilot of a Germanwings flight that slammed into an Alpine mountainside "intentionally" sent the plane into its doomed descent, a French prosecutor said Thursday.

 

Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin said the commander left the cockpit, presumably to go to the lavatory, and then was unable to regain access. In the meantime, he said, co-pilot Andreas Lubitz manually and "intentionally" set the plane on the descent that drove it into the mountainside in the southern French Alps.

It was the co-pilot's "intention to destroy this plane," Robin said.

 

 

The information was pulled from the black box cockpit voice recorder, but Robin said the co-pilot did not say a word after the commanding pilot left the cockpit.

"It was absolute silence in the cockpit," he said.

 

During the final minutes of the flight's descent, pounding could be heard on the door as alarms sounded, he said.

 

In the German town of Montabaur, acquaintances said Lubitz was in his late twenties and showed no signs of depression when they saw him last fall as he renewed his glider pilot's license.

 

"He was happy he had the job with Germanwings and he was doing well," said a member of the glider club, Peter Ruecker, who watched him learn to fly. "He gave off a good feeling."

 

Lubitz had obtained his glider pilot's license as a teenager, and was accepted as a Lufthansa pilot trainee after finishing a tough German college preparatory school, Ruecker said. He described Lubitz as a "rather quiet" but friendly young man.

 

The Airbus A320, on a flight from Barcelona to Duesseldorf, began to descend from cruising altitude after losing radio contact with ground control and slammed into the remote mountain on Tuesday morning, killing all 150 people on board.

 

Lufthansa has not identified the pilots but said the co-pilot joined Germanwings in September 2013, directly after training, and had flown 630 hours.

 

The captain had more than 6,000 hours of flying time and been a Germanwings pilot since May 2014, having previously flown for Lufthansa and Condor, Lufthansa said.

I got 24 comic posters at an estate sale for $20 - still in their original plastic sleeves, including one that I believe is very rare - 

it is Art Thibert's promotional poster for the NIGHTWING series that never was - it was canceled when Thibert left DC comics and went to work for MARVEL.

I found one other example; selling with the original artwork for $4,000, but no other examples. How do I find out what it & the others are worth? Does anyone here know it's value?

I've found a website that gives comic book values, but none for comic posters - is there one?

This measures about 7 1/4 inches long and 3" wide. I am very curious about the mark on the base. It looks kind of like a keyhole. This seems pretty old,  a couple of the chips look so dirt covered that they must be ancient. Does anyone have any opinions on age or the maker of this? Thanks for any help!

Hello All,

 

I recently came across this interesting Laughing Buddha figurine. It appears to be made of heavy, amber colored resin or glass. It measures approximately 2 3/4" tall and 3 1/2" wide.  It came in a fancy box with cloth lining.  The inside of the box has a plaque with Chinese writing.  A plastic coated card was also in the box with Chinese writing.

Can anyone translate the writing for me?  I suspect the figurine isn't worth much, possibly made for the tourist trade.  But it looks interesting with the fancy box and all.  Any information about the piece would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Selling question

Recently I got a message from a buyer asking for a return

 

I accepted the return.  Even covering the return shipping.  Please bear in mind the buyer it was the buyer's mistake.  Nothing to do with the motherboard I was selling.

 

I just noticed a "Return Requests: items not as described" in my seller dashboard.  I called up eBay and asked why I am being punished?  Since the return was due to buyers fault.

 

eBay CS told the very fact the buyer had to return the item means I am I at fault.  It doesn't necessarily have to be "items not as described".  If the buyer requests a return for any reason, I will get a point in the "Return Requests: items not as described".

 

I asked the genuine to please read the message the buyer sent me.  It clearly stated he got the wrong item and apologized.  Still the genuine at eBay refused to removed the defect point in my seller dashboard.  He said there's nothing he can do.

 

Is this eBay logic???

Selling discussion

This is happening right now and still not resolved!!

 

I have sent an $150 item with signature that shows it arrived and have been signed by the buyer. (Delivered Mar-09-15, 11:21 AM, AUSTIN, TX 78753) .The buyer STILL opened a INR case against me on March 20th, which is 5 days after the date USPS recorded delivered date.I have provided all those details in the case page on March 20th, and since the buyer didn't replied back to me. I have read somewhere on this forum that if the buyer do not reply or close the case after 30 days, I can do it myself to have it resolved in my favor. However, having $150 blocked on PayPal for a month isn't really something I am looking forward to have at the moment.

 

When calling Ebay to try to see if they could close the case for me, since I have all the hard evidence that this was delivered/signed for, they just told me to wait and that they cannot help me at this time, and that the buyer has to close the case, or escalate it to Ebay resolution center. Only that moment they said "there is a chance I can win this case in my favor". A chance ??? I have sent the item WITH tracking AND signature, and have all USPS proof of delivery and signature (which I paid extra for at the time of shipping). Now, not only I have my money put on hold on PayPal, but will also get a defect on my account because of this opened case, AND "may" have a chance to loose that case and see this scammer get refunded ?????

 

This super ridiculous, like class action lawsuit ridiculous. :catmad:

 

I do not know if it's allowed or not, but in case this helps other seller, the buyer Ebay name is "avgeneral" He is already blocked on my side.

 

Now doing the waiting game with this buyer, and see what will happen next.

Selling discussion

ebay now allows buyers to brag about winning ebay money back cases with negative feedback. This on top of the fact that ebay does not refund listing or final value fees on cases it decides makes it crystal clear that ebays only concern is its own profits.

My Account discussion

The new fee system that ebay will begin April 1st is just another way of attempting to get more $$ from the Sellers.

 

They want Sellers to open 'Stores' which will cost about $16.  That's a lot when you nickle and dime it with small sales.

You'll be allowed 20 FREE auctions, and each auction thereafter will cost .20-.25cents to list.  Listing fee will only be refunded if your item sells.

 

What's the incentive to relist unsold items, they've already cost you the entry fee. Odds aren't good it'll ever sell.

 

Some of us can only do ebay part time, after our daily 9-5 jobs.  

 

Any thoughts?

Selling discussion

I bought a bag of coffee as this was the only place I could find it (Starbucks 2014 Christmas blend)  the day I got it I filed for a full return - I am sure I will be ruled against - but I want to say that had the seller listed the item as she did another item - with "Sellers notes" then I would have seen that it had been opened...but to hide it behind "see full item description" is deceptive!!!!  Even if she had listed it as "New Other" I would have been clued in that something was different!!!!

 

Yes, my bad for not once but 3 times not seeing that box (had I and clicked on it I would have seen then that it was opened and I would NEVER have purchased it!!!!)  The description said "New, unopened and unused".  Today when I discovered the "view full item description" box and clicked on it a window opened saying the coffee had been opeend at the Starbuks and closed and was meant as a gift.   How am I to know that the item was bought for a gift and not received as a gift by the seller.  This is just so wrong!!!!!  Thanks for listening - just had to get this off my chest!!

Full Disclosure on items

Bought a vase, item description was:  Tamara Aladin´s design and Riihimäki Glass Factory product. I paid via PayPall.

 

I told about my purchase to my glass collector friends. They seriously doubted announced origin when they saw the picture of the vase. I asked about the vase on design glass forum and I was told the vase isn´t known in Aladin´s well documented production. I´ve made an inquiry to Riihimäki Glass Museum and I hope I´ll get answer soon.

 

 

I contacted the seller right away and told he what I had learned about the vase. The seller answered: "This is how it was sold to me and I have no reason to doubt the dealer who sold it to me.I am not an expert and I have no way of being 100% on the origin.
If you had any doubts you should say before bidding ,it is a lovely vase and I hope you will be pleased with it."

 

Seller hasn´t given me feedback. 

 

Is there such a culture on eBay, that for leaving negative feedback one will get negative feedback on return? They are called "revenge negative feedback".  In some auction sites that happens and therefore it´s not wise to give anyone negative feedback even if being cheated. 

 

As a new seller I must avoid negative feedback. 

 

 

Buying & Selling Basics question

Mar 27, 2015 10:24:23 AM PT

Is it unwise to leave negative feedback?

I bought a 2 pound item.  Paid $6 flat rate shipping (listed as "Standard" shipping in listing).  Seller shipped Priority Mail, 2 pound rate.

 

Item is not as described, seller accepted return request, out pops a First Class Return Service label.

 

Just curious if there's a glitch with return labels or if anyone knows why this happened. 

 

I guess I'll be spending my morning on the line with ebay getting the label switched up.

Selling discussion

I made a purchase for $38, it shows that the item was sold for $48.  I think this may be a scheme for eBay to make for money on listing.  They tell you to look at "sold" listings when listing your own stuff to get an idea of what things are selling for.  Could this be a way for eBay to make you overprice and have to relist?  Now with this no more relisting for free, it seems we're being scammed by eBay.....anyone else notice this going on?  Very sneaky....

I bought an item at 18.8.14  and it didn't arrive in reasonable time. I opened and closed a case (via resolution center) after he promised to resend the parcel again. Since then he stoped responding my messages (more than 10), although I sent him messages about other items from his web store. Ebay costumer services didn't helped due to elapsed time and keep saying "trying to contact directly with the seller is the only way". Yet, item hasn't arrived and the money wasn't returned. Pls advice

When eBay's policy doesn't support my case

Why oh why can't I see weather an auction is private or not after I sign in???  Check out the pic I included, identical listing, one on the left is before I sign in, the right one is after I sign in. Notice the listing pic changes size also, weird no?

 

This problem popped up within the last year or so, ebay changed it for some mysterious reason. So I'm searching thru listings, click on an ad and right at the top of the sellers listing is a white bar which states "This is a private listing. Sign in to view your status or learn more about private listings." BUT, once I sign in to my account, it is gone. Not just in this ad, in every listing that I view as long as I'm signed in. The bar disappears and I have no idea weather auctions are private or not?? Try it yourself and let me know if it happens to you. Find a few private listings, save the links, sign in and watch the private listing indicator magically disappear.
