Hello Folks,

I recently purchased this Art Deco style glass lamp.  It's made of pink satin glass with a black glass base.  The design features four panels, each depicting a dancing semi-nude woman holding a flower over her head.  The lamp stands about 10 1/8" tall including the base.  The pink portion is 9 1/4" tall and 4 1/4" square.  The base is 5" wide.  There are no manufacturer markings that I can find.

I've seen a vase that looks identical to the pink portion of the lamp that was made by Sarsaparilla Deco Designs in 1984.  However, the vase is slighly shorter (8 7/8" tall) and it has 4 feet.  The bottom of the vase is clearly marked with the Sarsaparilla name.  I looked through the glass at the bottom of the lamp and don't think there is any writing on the bottom of the pink glass.  Also, this piece has no feet on the pink portion of the glass.

I think Sarsaparilla generally modeled their designs after actual items from the Art Deco period.  I'm wondering if this lamp is an original, older piece that Sarsaparilla modeled their vase from.  I haven't been able to find another example of this lamp anywhere on the internet.  Does anyone know who made this lamp?


Any ideas are welcome.  Thanks in advance!

Hello Folks,


I recently acquired this covered dish with an art glass bird finial.  The style of the bird looks a lot like the finial on crystal perfume bottles made by the Pairpoint Glass Company and designed by Robert Gunderson.  However, the bird on my piece is not quite as detailed and the ball it sits on is not as well formed.  Also, I'm not aware that Pairpoint made covered dishes like this one.


I'm guessing this covered dish (candy dish or trinket container) is a knockoff of the Gunderson design.  The piece measures about 12 1/4" to the top of the bird's tail and the dish portion measures approximately 6 1/2" wide.

Does anyone know who made this piece?  Thanks in advance!

Help with a Remote Control Battery Charger

So, here is the situation:
June 28 I received notification that my item was sold. I opened eBay and found this, normal for complited deal message:
 Thats what eBay told me.

I always receiving absolutely same messages when I sold something.
So, as eBay told me, I sent the item ASAP, next day with a free shipping via 3-Day Priority Express.
Same day, after work I decided to check my account, because there was a pending transaction from previous sale and I was curious when I will receive the money.

As it has appeared, there is no money for item that I just shipped!
I checked everything, but they are not even pending!
I went to the ebay.com / selling and found this:

Buyer still didn't paid

I began to review details and its appeared that my buyer sent an eCheck. I heard that eCheck's need 3 days to process, so I was wondered, why eBay told me to ship it(as you can see at the first screenshot).
I googled what I can to do, and found that at first of all, I need to contact PayPal ASAP, to let them protect me in case if it's a froud.
I did.
Representative told me that I can call my buyer, or request package interception from carrier. She also gave me contact information of my buyer. Summarizing, she literally told me that this is my problem and they can't do nothing with that. Hmmm... They claiming that PayPal is a safest way to sell or buy online, but now I do not think so.

Fine. Let's call USPS. 10 minutes of rage was provided by automatic menu that know three sentences "Sorry, I didn't get that" "Repeat that" "Thank you for using USPS. Bye!" . Than, when I finally was connected, they told me that all representatives busy and estimated time on hold 12-15 min. 17 minutes on hold later they just disconnect me and I didn't even heard a real human.
I was too much tiered and just went to sleep.

This morning, I received eMail from PayPal that bank of my buyer declined eCheck.
I called USPS again and after the same procedure as day before i finally rich the real person on the line. They nicely told me that I can intercept the package using they website and wish me a great day.
After filling all forms at usps.com I found that I have to pay $19.50 to get my item back.

Is it my fault that eBay told me to ship the item before payment was clear? I don't think so. So I called eBay again, and they told me to wait, and that what they "Doing their best". If payment will go true, we will give you your money. If not - call the police, we can't do nothing. My claims that it's their website told me to ship it was left without any attention. They just ignored that I said this.  

Buyer still not respond to me and package already in the buyer's hometown. I feel robbed and everybody just trying to rid me of.
I don't know what to do, I was need that money very much.
I still hope that buyer will be that nice to answer to me and will pay, or just will send it to me back, but the fact that  eBay does not want to take responsibility for the mistake that making their website it's ridiculous!

July is never the best month to be an eBay seller, but it's a GREAT month for enjoying family, friends, and the great outdoors!  This, of all months, is when you should say YES to fun--so sure, keep up with your listings, but don't let it drag you down….this is the best month to balance work and play, catch your breath, and regroup for the change of seasons that's not as far off as you think!




For luck, we have Magic Listing Dust:





For support, we have a Green Goddess:





And for eye-candy, we have George:






Our group’s purpose is 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) and the free Google Keywords tool, learning how to take better photos (there are free courses online), changing the keywords on your store pages regularly, changing the opening blurb in your store header regularly (web spyders love new content) and experimenting with price changes UP as well as DOWN!


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.


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 life is too short to have your tail in a knot. Write up that snarky reply, get a laugh at it, then hit delete. Kill 'em with kindness


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.

I haven't browsed on eBay for many months. A few minutes ago, I decided to search for "stanley plane" and browse through the 5,000 listings that resulted. I clicked on a listing only to discover that I was apparently opted back into the eBay hide-the-description program. Clicking on the button leads to a "full description" popup. I'm not doing that. Sorry.


No more browsing on eBay for me. I'm done.

Found these two vintage toy steam engines in an estate sale and don't know a thing about them. I see no makers name of any kind. They are made of cast iron & tin.

They look like they were working engines at one time. I am guessing 1950's era?  Any help as always will be much appreciated.

I am planning to get rid of these Bakelite items.  don't wear them and they are just collecting dust, so might as well be rid of them.


 I am going to sell them here on eBay, Etsy is dead when it comes to Bakelite.


Do folks think it is better to sell them as a lot of Bakelite or to try to sell carved ones as a separate lot, a spacer lot and so on?


Is summer a good time to sell these, or is there a summer slump here?


I've checked and see that some Bakelite lots do quite well. (Around $700) I got these for very good prices and have very little invested in these.


Just wondering what long time sellers here would advise.

Didn't receive an item

I was making a pair of earrings this evening and needed a red bead of some kind so I pulled out the "RED" storage box to sort through it for the right bead.  Yeah, it SOUNDS organized doesn't it, yeah not.  Anyway I had a baggie with two necklaces and a bracelet made of small red glass beads, all three different.  As I looked at the bracelet I realized the beads weren't glass.  I don't know what they are.  They're not agate carnelian as there's no translucency to them.  The color is a tomato red and the beads have almost a grittyness to them when I rub them against my teeth.  They're not perfectly round, each is slightly different and they tend to have little depressions in them.  The clasp is unusual as well; I've never seen one quite like this.  DBL is printed on the back of the clasp.  Of course searching by DBL brings up double everything since DBL is a common abbreviation for double.  Does anybody have any thoughts on this?  I came in a lot I bought years ago.

Can anyone identify this glass lamp.  The pattern is similar to Atterbury and Imperial Zipper Loop but not exactly the same as either that I have seen in the Thuro book or found online. This lamp has a flat top and the loops are rounder or less oblong and appear to protrude more then the imperial. It measures 8 3/4" to the top of the brass collar which I believe is the Taplin collar and the round panelled and beaded base is 4 1/2" in diameter.  The clear glass flouresces green with uv light.  The hinged flip top burner is marked Pat.

Whose Crest/Coat of Arms is this?

Stamp Insider for July-August 2015




The July-August issue of the Stamp Insider, journal of the Federation of New York Philatelic Societies, is online and available for free download in PDF format or viewing online with page turning. It is available in both PDF and HTML5-friendly format at:




The cover story is “New York Pneumatic Tube Mail” by Steve Swain. The system, which moved mail in 25-pound steel canisters between the city’s five boroughs, opened in 1897. Its final remnants were shut down in 1953.


“Planes, Trains, Automobiles … and Horses?” that explores the connection between early transcontinental airmail service and earlier land routes, including the Lincoln Highway. Deltiologist Ruth Sabo shows that postcards were sometimes made of more than cardboard in “The Medium Was the Message.”


The featured video, related to Sabo’s article, shows a Tuck’s postcard record from 1929 being played on a restored vintage gramophone.


A new section — Virtual Programs — has been added to the Stamp Insider website. It displays PowerPoint club presentations that have been converted to PDF and HTML5 page turning. The first offerings are “The U.S. Postal Transportation Issue of 1981–1995” and “U.S. Private Die Proprietary Stamps” by Terry Blum of the Western Monroe Philatelic Society in Spencerport, New York. The Stamp Insider welcomes your contributions.

I've had this purse for over 20 years. Purchased it at a consignment store under the impression that it was a real Coach. Now, I'm not sure. The straps are sewn onto the sides. The flap has a magnetic snap on it. The Creed is impressed onto the inside (not a seperate patch) and reads, "Coach Leatherware. This is a Coach bag, U.S. made out of a completely natural gloved tanned cowhide. The scars, scratches, veins and wrinkles are natural markings characteristic of full grain leather. Made in the United States. No. 0711-316.

Measuremens are 7-3/8" length, height (not including straps) 6-1/2" and width 2-3/4."

Would like to sell it since I haven't used it in 10 years but don't want to list it as real if it's not. Thanks for any help on this.coachpurse 001.JPG

Hello Folks,


I recently picked up 4 Sandwich glass whale oil lamps.  I've been able to identify the pattern name on all of them except this one.  I've been through the "A Guide to Sandwich Glass - Whale Oil Lamps & Accessories" book by Barlow & Kaiser and searched the internet to no avail.  The lamp has a font with a band of thumbprints, each of which has a "cross" pattern inside the thumbprint.  The hexagonal shaped based is connected to the font with a glass wafer.  The shape of the base looks identical to other lamps I've seen attributed to Boston & Sandwich.

The lamp stands about 9" tall to the top of the collar.  The font is approximately 2 3/4" wide.  The hexagonal base measures 4" in diameter.  Anyone recognize this pattern?  Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello Again Folks,


I recently purchased this EAPG caster set and I haven't been able to identify the pattern.  The caster base is all glass and it has 4 matching condiment bottles.  The pattern costs of a series of upsidedown "V"-shaped zippers with a fan underneath.  The stopper on one of the bottles may be a replacement (not sure), but it fits well.  The diameter of the base is approximately 4" and the width of the upper portion that hold the bottles is about 5 1/4". The bottles vary in height from 4 1/4" to 7 1/8" tall (including stopper).

I've searched the internet and the EAPG patterns web site with no luck.  Anybody recognize this pattern?  Thanks in advance!

There is also a circle mark with crossed hammers and  Wilcox (I can't make out the rest.)

I want to list this Egyptian revival bracelet but I can't figure out what is going on with the center stone.  It looks like it has something growing on it--it is smooth and black underneath with a crackle like coating on some of the top.  Has the coating just worn off the part where the black is exposed or is there some disease or something attacking the stone? I have tried to peel more of the coating off but it seems to be stuck fast. Any ideas are welcome!

Hello fellow ebay mellows, 


Sorry if this is TLDR, but I couldn't find similar info on this exact topic, so hey.


This is not an attack towards eBay, rather just something I felt needed to be shared as I thought it was kind of funny. 

As a small time seller, when someone buys something from my online store, it makes me feel like a million bucks (or like the $8 I just made after fees).

When eBay started giving out shipping discounts, it made me feel like double... I mean think of all the fine things I could charge less for to hopefully generate more sales. 


However, I do like to think of myself as a curious type, so I asked myself, "Why am I getting these discounts?" 

No immediate answers came to mind.
Anyways, months pass by, and I eventually leave this curisoity of the topic locked somewhere in the back of my mind. 


Until today! 


I recently sold an item with a total weight of less than 5 oz. and I charged $2.50 for First-Class USPS service.  

The eBay discount dropped the actual cost from $2.70-something, down to $2.23 (something around there; i just can't remember atm).


Anyways, I went to my Account Activity page and noticed that for that sale I got charged the exact same percentage as the discount on shipping but as a Final Value Fee on shipping. 






I don't know how deep this goes as far as FVF so if you have any findings on this matter, please share them.

sorry for the long post here's a cool mouse chillin Smiley Happy

How ebay Scams with Shipping Fees

20 measly listings a month now?  Real smart move ebay, I assume that most sellers are like me, and absolutely hate listing items.  It's boring, and it's tedious work, especially thanks to ebay's ancient, half brained photo uploading applet.   Whoever coded it, doesn't seem to understand that people want to drag and drop, and then be able to drag each picture into their desired order.  It's not hard to implement that kind of functionality into a website.  Instead, each time you go to upload your photos, you're stuck making mental notes of filenames, reverting to thumbnail view in the explorer window that pops up, and finally scrolling to find the pictures that you could have simply dragged over from the folder you had open in the first place.  Listing is a major headache, but it should be the smoothest part of selling on ebay and it should not cost sellers a cent.  It obviously has nothing to do with keeping the amount of junk listings at a minimum, considering 95% of ebay is just that.


Point is, nobody wants to pay listing fees, when they are already coughing up 13% of the selling price when a buyer actually comes along (kind of rare these days).  If items aren't selling, you're throwing away money and wasting your worthless 20 "free" listings.


Ebay is purposely limiting the amount of transactions that are made on the site.  Either that, or they simply don't understand the consequences of annoying and frustrating the sellers who choose their site as a selling platform.

Is anyone selling anything???

I won a Paypal dispute over a 'non-receipt' which was then changed to a 'not as described' dispute from a nightmare US buyer for an expensive item. I charged the right amount for shipping and insurance albeit unpaid by the buyer but was complementary by me for my security. The buyer has now left me my first negative feedback and I have been selling for years without an issue. What should I do or can I do to remove it? The feedback claims are false and I feel the buyer is being bitter about losing the Paypal dispute and retailiating to my more then appropriate feedback for them. I have already reported this buyer to ebay but don't feel like they can help. No sense in trying to rectify with the buyer - they were hellish to deal with!

I haven't used this forum before. I have just had my first bad experience selling on ebay. I have been a member for four years. What happened was I sold one of my kids old bicycles for 99p. I just requested pick up within 3 days on the item description. The buyer payed 99p via paypal but did not pick up the bike. After 3 days I asked her when she could pick it up. She said she could only do weekdays before 2pm. I explained that both my wife and I were at work and could she possibly do another time (I didn't want to take a morning of work to sell something for 99p) . I heard nothing back. After a week I emailed her again and asked if she still wanted it, suggested a refund as an option. No reply. 3 days later (late Saturday night) I received an email from her in block capitals 'STILL NO REFUND.?.' I replied by saying that I had not heard back from her but I would refund straight away. Which I did. Following this, you guessed it, I was left negative feedback. With only 68 transactions this brings my rating to 97%. I contacted ebay, who suggested that I contact the buyer to try and work it out. I did this, but just got a curt email back, telling me that I should have been more flexible. Not only that, I then got mocking emails where she was just sending me smily faces, followed by a mocking phonecall from a male voice on a withheld number saying 'hello mate, can I buy a bike for a quid?' Followed by laughter and then hanging up. I cannot reciprocate the bad feedback, and ebay have told me that they they cannot remove it. This experience has irritated me so much that I honestly feel like giving up selling on ebay altogether. I have emailed ebay about this several times, and am starting to feel like a pest. It's just that I am so irritated that people can behave like this. Surely this can't be ok can it? Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing? This experience has made me lose all enthusiasm for selling.

I had two LV purses that ebay removed stating they were counterfeit. I then called customer service and got "disconnected." Hmmm.  What to do when you have two authentic purses with all the pictures required to show such and Ebay removes them.

My listings were removed

I have a buyer that has 1 transaction over the past 12 months.  The buyer made a Best Offer on a product with the stipulation that they would pay for shipping and send me a shipping label.  


Any insight or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Why I didn't received my order on time?

I'm new to eBay and just won a few rings from China. Is all of their jewelry bad? Didn't really see negative feedback 😐

Rings from china

I am devistated! She is also a long time EbaSeller of Antiques similar to this one, and says it's not HER POLICY to keep damaged goods! It was a Vintage Bakelite Trinket Box in Excellent Condition-I have many pictures. It is unbreakable and I shipped it USPS because I was certain it would not break. When I sold it to her because she offered me much less than my asking price and I needed the money badly that day. I wanted to do something nice for her as I know she wanted it badly. She opened a Return. Now there's nothing for her to return. I offered her a partial refund minus the Shipping and Handling. She refused as I stated before. I have reposted her. Do you think Ebay will now agree with her, or me with my partial refund which was her full purchase price minus Shipping as I stated before. Thank you! I am so upset that this piece had been in my family 25 yrs and it was unbreakable. She had to have taken a hammer to it!
