This pitcher is signed braja? or grafa? in brown. The clay is light gray. It has a glossy glaze inside and out.  Not sure if the name on the bottom is the name of the potter (maybe a studio piece?) or the name of the pottery.  What does it say?  It stans about 3 1/2" tall

This series of tornado disaster pictures came from a Charles City, Iowa, estate; howester I've not specifically i.d. the pictures as showing Charles City damage as so many areas were struck during the great 1968 tornado outbreak:

One car, which appears to be a hearse, has a red text on white background license plate which is consistant with Iowa for 1968.

Many many hours into this clear cake plate. Thought it would be easy to ID. Perhaps it's not really EAPG?

 

Then there's my friend's (jealous) canary yellow/vaseline Daisy & Button bowl. There are leave around the base of each of the four feet (had to see in the photo and hard to photograph) and an additional design on the bottom. I thought there was a D&B with Leaf pattern, but I can't find hide nor hair of it in McCain or Reilly & Jenks, or Florence's pattern ID books.

 

Argh. I'm sorry to have to ask for help again.

I don't know how many of you know that PayPal offers reduced "Merchant rate" fees.

No, they don't advertise those or just give them to you "Willy Nilly". You will need to upgrade your PayPal account to a business account and then apply for those "Merchant rate" fees.

 

If you sell for $3,000 or more each month it is well worth it!

If you receive more than $10,000 a month you will really feel that difference between the regular 2.9% fee and the 2.2% fee. Believe me...

 

Here is how it is done:

Teeny size 5   I think this is older  Marked sterling only  Do you think it is European?  Any suggestions are very welcomed  Thank you!

Jewelry & Gemstones Board Group

I picked up this sterling pin today, couldn't read the mark until I got home to loupe it. It's a PARENTI brooch (interesting history there BTW) and what I thought were glass stones are gemstones, test as amethyst, citrine, moonstone and aquamarine, I'm not sure what the rose cabochon is, possibly rose quartz ?
Anyway, I was a bit worried about the two cabochons being original while the rest are faceted. I see no evidence of them being replaced so now I think probably original.
I see by some limited research the sisters used quite a bit of moonstone and aquamarine but I'd still like some opinions if you think the cabochons are original.
Thanks for the help !

I am trying to find out more about this kerosene/oil lamp that has legally come into my possession. 

Who or what company made it? How old is it?....please.

 

The wick has never been opened and the lamp  is almost entirely made out of glass. On the bottom, there are the letters H and what appears to be V E fused together. (see attachment photo).

 

Anything you can tell me about it would be most appreciative. ty

Mmmm, here comes fall, the most beautiful time of the year in many parts of the US, with bright blue skies and sunny days.  Let's get energized by the cooler weather and the bigger demand for our beautiful items…..LIST, LIST, and LIST SOME MORE to keep the green flowing!

 

We have a pretty new Green Goddess to boost our sales:

 

ggg

 

 

Magic listing dust to sprinkle generously on our listings:

 

aa

 

 

And our handsome George on his way out of my place :-D

 

 

 

The Gotta Make Money Support Group is here to help and support each other in Making Money, so here are some suggestions to keep the money flowing. We've culled these from years of experience and hope you'll be helped by them!

 

1) LIST IN A VARIETY OF FORMATS - Try some regular auctions, auctions with Buy it Now, Fixed Price, and Fixed Price with Best Offer. Not only will you get a better idea what works for YOU, but you'll offer buyers a variety of buying options.

 

2) OPTIMIZE YOUR LISTINGS – By using the free Terapeak Keyword app (find it in the Applications tab), practice how to take better photos, change the keywords on your listing titles regularly, change the opening blurb in your store header every now and then, and experiment with price changes UP as well as DOWN!  Run Sales on a regular basis with the Markdown Manager and also learn how to set up Promotions on your Store listings for better visibility.

 

3) DON'T LET YOUR UNSOLD LISTINGS LAY AROUND - Check your My eBay page and click on Unsold...get those relisted ASAP!  You've already done all the work, so be sure they're viewable by buyers!

 

4) OPEN A STORE - If you are wondering whether you are better off with a BASIC store or a PREMIUM store, figure that if you have over 250 store items, Premium is a better buy....under 250, Basic is....this is at least a rule of thumb to get you started.  Stores used to be great places to put items and keep them available year round, but with the fee changes, maybe not so much - sit down and figure it all out.

 

However, there are at least four really good reasons to have a store.... 1) listing fees are less if you have a store, 2) your items can be separated into categories making it much easier for buyers to shop, 3) you can run Promotions and Markdown Manager sales. They are two different ways to generate sales!, and 4) you can put your store in vacation mode when you need to get away for a bit.

 

5) DEAL WITH BIDDERS, BUYERS, AND ANNOYING INQUISITIVE POTENTIAL BIDDERS IN A PATIENT AND FRIENDLY WAY - Remember that it's worth money in your pocket and it's good business sense to show respect to all.   If you must, write up that snarky reply, get a laugh at it, then hit delete.

 

6) KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE! This thread is all about MAKING MONEY, that's for sure, but we feel that being supportive of our Lister Sisters and Brothers helps ALL of us. Drop in and hang out! Venting is allowed, but take it easy on the drama, negative vibes and controversial, off-topic issues such as politics and religion.

 

Join in, we don't bite!

Besides potentially offensive, they are vintage screw backs  , from a large lot of vetted antique/vintage jewelry, there is zero doubt these are not contemporary... The necklaces are very ornate, my camera can't pick up all of the stones, very detailed and well made, but sadly unmarked which has limited my search... so maker? and an appropriate description?...Regards V76IMG_4664.JPGIMG_4660.JPG

This seller has a silk tie up for auction (see above) at a starting price of $.01 + free shipping.  I noticed the auction said there were 6 bids.  How is it possible to have 6 bids, and the price is currently at one cent?  Is this a scam?  Why are sellers doing things like this? 

 

I also had another experience where I bid on an item with a low price and someone outbid me several times.  There was no activitiy on this item the whole time during the auction and now sudden interest?  A friend told me it was the seller outbidding me, to try to get me to bid higher, and ultimately pay more for the item.  Can they do this?  Is this allowed by eBay? 

 

Someone please respond! 

 

Thank you,  Jim

For the last 2 or 3 years when I am  using my eBay account and searching, etc I would be sent to an Asian eBay site.  I have NEVER gotten ANY help from eBay Customer Service.  They either do not know, or say someone will contact me which never happens, or say it is my computer (As this has NEVER happened on any other site, just on eBay, can not be me).  For the last week or two it happens EVERY day.  Anyone out there has or had this problem?  What can be done?  My only clue is that a few years ago I went to many of the non-US eBays looking for bargains in Militaria but if that did it why only Asian Market defaulting to my sereaches from current My Ebay page?  Any help appreciated:  Here is what I got a few minutes ago:

It is "with compliments" from the minister of the goverment of Indonesia  intended for the Director General Ministry of Industry and Mining Imperial Goverment of Iran"

 

I don't know what came in it, but it's engraved nicely. It is wood lined, and it also has a hallmark with UD 800 DELUXE inside a flame or flower.

 

Can anyone tell me what I have? Is it silver? WHat is the hallmark? Anything else of interest?

 

I greatly appreciate wny help with this - it's one of the coolest things I've found in a while!

 

PS - I photographed the engraving on the bottom with & without flash so it can be read better.

Hi there. I have this glass bead necklace that's in need of an ID. It reminds me of the wedding cake beads just a little I guess with the swirls. I googled glass beads with swirls and with other descriptions with no luck.

 

Does anyone have a clue to what these beads are referred to as and age frame?

 

Thanks as Always.........

Jewelry & Gemstones discussion

Can anyone tell me what I have? It is a wood (I believe - look at ears where metal isn't) carved horse covered in a thin metal or brass overlay. Even the tail is covered in metal or brass. And the saddle - plus the front of the horse's neck - have bells on them.

 

Is this piece old? I think so, but the padding under the hooves makes me think it's newer - unless added later?

Is it russian?

I've tried researching it, but have only found some with a hammered brass on the saddle or the horse's mane & tail - none completely covered.

Would appreciate any help knowing what it is I found!

I think this predates moonglow.  It's similar, and has a pearlescent quality.  Is it an acrylic, or thermoset? I believe the back of the smaller pin has some celluloid.  The larger one is 3"x2"..  I think they date to the late 30s or 40s.  What do you think?

cufflinks?

Hi all,

I've had this for a long time - I just found it again when I got a call asking me if I was abandoning a storage unit I had last visted/paid rent on over a year ago! (the owner is a friend & she also forgot about it - I had 4-5 units there at 1 time - so she didn't realize I still had a unit after emptying the others!)

 

This is a 6ft handmade (it has 2x2 wood boards for legs) mannequin that looks like the soldiers that stand in front of Buckingham palace. 

I'm wondering about it's age - the hands are damaged, but I'm hoping the way they were made may help someone be able to tell it's age?

 

I'm also wondering if the buttons on the uniform are real? I noticed them when I got him home & that they look real. I know that real military uniform buttons are valuable, so I have fingers crossed that these might be the real deal!

 

Any help with this guy would be greatly appreciated; if I sell him I guess it would definitely have to be 'Local Pick Up Only' because I think he'd be too fragile to ship Fed Ex?

Thanks

SEPTEMBER is Here.. Let`s Dish!!

First, a little history: a few years ago I bought items for our Catholic church from a "nonprofit" church and religious goods supply company in Guadulajara Mexico called Pax *****, via its own website, and the experience was bad; some items were fine, others were poorly made or had missing parts, "customer service" emails were odd or insulting, sometimes containing Yiddish words and phrases that seemed to stereotype Jews. Graphics on the site mocked Mexicans. One still does,a stereotype photo of poor, gun toting, mustached, sombrero wearing Mexicans taken circa 1920, with the mocking caption "Our skilled and highy intelligent personnel are waiting to serve you". Another photo of a truck overloaded with Middle East refugees and their belongings is captioned "Our mail room staff rushing to make deliveries..." Oddly, payment for the items went to and go to, a man in New York City, even though the nonprofit "founder" claims to be retired and living in Mexico. He also claimed on his website at that time that its profits went to "the poor and needy of Mexico". Later this changed to "street orphans", and he made some connection to nuns as well. Now it says "the poor and needy of Mexico and 200 abandoned dogs". He also posted (and does post) comments on You Tube that are basically ads. If you do an internet search for "dog shelters" in Guadalajara or Mexico in general, you won't find his.

 

After this, I found him selling on eBay, but avoided him. Others didn't, some customers left good feedback, and a few got burned in one way or another. Today I came across this seller again by chance. Now, "your purchase" will help support this "home for 300 abandoned and abused dogs", up from 200. This "company" does sell goods, but something isn't "right" with it:  it links dubious charitable purposes to its sales, and even has a GO FUND ME link in their eBay listing so that you can donate directly to the ever changing charity that is supposedly the reason for its existence. When you go to his gofundme page, you read a sob story about him and his broken vehicle and hungry "dogs", (and see photos of 3 dogs out of "300" that are up for adoption, and a photo of a room full of white dogs that looks photoshopped) but not one word about the poor and needy of Mexico that his "charity" also supposedly cares for, according to his actual website. He doesn't HAVE a godundme page for them. Also, the sellers eBay name is his non-eBay store's web address. You can skip eBay altogether and buy from him directly. I've contacted eBay in the past about this seller. He still sells here, nothing's changed. Why? My non-eBay experiences with this person have no bearing on what eBay does of course, but isn't connecting sales to a non-U.S. charitable purpose that keeps changing, and having a gofundme link, against eBay policy? Anyone can register as a nonprofit. No not for profit charity goes from helping "poor and needy Mexicans" to also helping "300 abandoned and abused dogs".

WHY WON'T EBAY REMOVE A SELLER LIKE THIS?

I bought a laptop from this seller, which worked fine for some time. After a a few month the harddisk crashed, and it proved that it was not fit properly (without bracket, which would have given it is proper fit). It was literally bouncing against the walls of its container.

 

At first, the seller responded quickly on my e-mails and sent me a message that I could repair the laptop locally, and that he would refund the costs of the repair.

 

However, after the repair and sending the bill over to the seller, he refuses to transfer the money, and he also does not communicate anymore.

I shouldn't have taken her best offer of $73 on $170 listing.  She knew my Villeroy Switch 3 cruets had some crazing, but now says, "more than I thought" and "I cannot give you a good recommendation".  Is that her way of threatening a negative?  This is a really rare piece, so imagine my surprise when it showed up again, here on ebay, with the same damage (actually it looks like she has repaired it a bit, which is nice.)  So do I just reply, "Return for refund?"  It really makes me angry, but what else can I do?  How do I refund and avoid the defect? 

 

Thanks for any advice.

I sold a lidded metal music box to an Israeli buyer. I never use global shipping because my merchandise is usually fragile, but this one must have slipped through the cracks. I mailed it on Aug 4th and it was delivered after several attempts on the 26th. I have a 14 day return policy. The buyer sent me an email on the 26th to say the item arrived damaged. I really didn't know what to do, but I requested photographs of the box, the shipping label, the item and packing materials. Yesterday she emailed me to say that she can't upload any photos to me and asked for my personal email address, which I have no intention of giving her. Also, in a second email she claims that the hinge was attached with epoxy and that is the reason it was damaged in shipping (implying that I glued the hinge on, which I did not, and none of my 12 photos indicate a hinge repair). I really don't know where my responsibility lies here and I have no experience with international shipping. Can anyone advise me? I would appreciate it because I want to resolve this asap. Thanks.

not paying

I brought a hair pin or whatever and when I buy it I thought it was going to be pink but turn out is another color so I left a feedback saying is not what's in the picture cause in the picture it really look like pink and the seller is just giving me attitude and was kind of trying to solve the problem and I told the seller I will change it or remove it but I don't know why it didn't remove then the seller is coming at me and saying I'm a lier and I cheat on them and so now and I do want to remove so the seller won't come at me like this.

feedback

I am communicating with a potential buyer through the ebay mail thread.  My initial email answering their question is showing, then their response.  From there all the remaining emails that I have sent are not showing up in the thread.  I am concerned that they are not being sent.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions to find the sent emails?  They do not show in my sent folder either.

 

Thank you!

Email thread to potential buyer.

I have been diligent in keeping my 100% rating.  Because of that, my numbskull hubby has been using my account to purchase things, which has not been a problem.  And, bless his heart, let's just say he's not too good about checking out seller's ratings, payment method, etc. when bidding on something.  So..... Tonight I get notice of a purchase where his bid (that he was the only 1 in 5 days should tell you something) and there are red flags EVERYWHERE!   $75 total with shipping, no return policy, only takes MO or cashier's check. Says he has 3 reviews, but only 1 shows and it was for him being a buyer.  IF I can convince him not to go thru with it, what will it do to my rating?  I'm having to fight myself to just let him go thru with it and maybe it'll just be an expensive wake up!

 

if he should see how "dangerous" it would be to send this guy money, what is the best way to save my rating?

 

And, yes, he'll be opening his OWN account!!!  :-)

 

thanks!

My Account question

There are a lot of Under Armour Alter Ego Compression shirts being sold on eBay.  I am not 100% sure of their authenticity, but do know these shirts are not the same as the shirt being sold in the US. 

 

Sellers are claiming they are US sizing but they are not. I recently purchased a shirt in my current Under Armour size - Medium.  The Spiderman Under Armour shirt was brand new with tags. The sizing was completely different. 

 

I contacted a few other buyers on eBay.  Some stated they would not open the shirts since they were sealed. The ones that did send me measurment were clearly diffrent then the Authentic Alter Ego shirt purchased from the Under Armour New York Flagship store.   BUYERS BEWARE!!!  

 

Ebay Shirts Measure: (Flat, Front Side) - 

Collar to hem 23.5

Armpit to Armpit 15.5

Waist 13.7

Shoulder to Shoulder 15.3

 

Authentic Under Armour Alter Ego shirts 

Collar to hem 25

Armpit to Armpit 17

Bottom Waist 14.5

Shoulder to Shoulder 16

 

Below is a photo of the shirts laid on top of one another. The 2015 Under Armour shirt is under the Spiderman one I bought off eBay.  Both are marked size medium.

 

The seller is giving me a refund, stating the shirt was a non-US market shirt. I contacted Under Armour cooporate to alert them of the practice and provided sellers who are selling these shirts.  Ebay should require buyer to state these claims up front. If a seller knows the sizng is different it should simply be stated.  When items differ significantly from authentic store bought versions and a trend emerges.  Ebay should take the time to investigate and remove such items. If sellers continue to post they should be penalize or ban from posting. 

 

Ask the sellers to measure the shirt - if they are reluctant it is probably a counterfeit.  Tags attached or not.
