I got this item from a house clean-out, and I have no idea what it is. The guy was into vintage electrical / radio / tv stuff if that helps at all. He even had it tagged unidentified.
I found this lovely doll at Goodwill, but I don't have alot of experience with dolls. I found a site online and I believe the style is Flat-Top aka Civil War head, but I also know that they were reproduced in the 1960's and 70's. The arms appear to be made of soft leather. She measures about 10 3/4" in total height. The porcelain part measures about 2" from top to bottom. I don't know when the clothes were made, the dress has two very small snaps in the back. Could anyone give me an idea of the age and/or origin of this doll?
I appreciate the help!
Fond these in an auction box lot. Identical in size and shape, 4" high, 4" wide at base and about 3.5" wide at mouth. One featyres a hunt scene, the other a pair of "raised" horses.
I've seen similar mugs listed as "Gibson" or Staffordshire. However, neither of these have clear maker IDs, just a little dab of gold paint on the bottom. Both have three stilt marks on the bottom. Thanks in advance for any help!
So many different ribbed patterns but so far, none I've found match this bowl. Rolled rim, squared bottom base. 9.5" across the top x 4.5" deep x 2.5" bottom base. Smooth inside, ribbed on outside. Any thoughts? TIA....
I'm back asking for help again. I've looked at some many patterns I am seeing glass in my sleep! This yellow, it's a lighter than my amber glass items, is one of a couple that I just can't find the pattern name or maker. Anyone know this thumbprint style pattern?

Hi, I'm not sure how to describe this bracelet. The links pull apart sort of like an expansion bracelet. I've searched under sterling expansion bracelet and sterling stretch bracelet, and not seen anything similar. Are there any other terms that could beused to describe the construction of this bracelet? The only marking is Sterling, Pat Aug 20 1907.
Thanks for any help with this.
Hope your special day is GREAT, Alex!

Hi can someone please help me with this Sterling mark on this watch? It looks like TL 925 but I can't find it anywhere.
Does anyone recognize this print or the artist. It was printed from the John Drescher CO., and is signed. I'm not quite sure but the signature looks like K Izolli...not pulling up anything with that name, or variations. Found one example of the print, but the dealer wasn's sure who the artist was either. Thanks for any help

The demilune 3 legged table is made by Kiel Furniture Co, Milwaukee, Wi. I believe it was made from 1907-1932 (stamped on bottom Kiel & name of the company changed after 1932.)
Do you know if the design on the back of the table would be called a cross? If so, was it made for a church and not home use or does it just look like a cross?
Does the table look like it is made of Mahogany?
Size of table: 26" L x 12" W x 24" H.

I've been researching this sugar / honey / marmalade jar and the more I read, the more confused I become. Some sites say it's Windsor Pink Cane and Button from Federal and then I found a Royal Brighton from Indiana Glass, possibly using the Federal Glass molds. Looks like a rose color to me instead of pink but I have confused colors before.
Is this piece from Federal Glass or Indiana Glass and how can one tell? No markings, of course. Measures 3 1/4" high without the lid, 5" with the lid and 3" across the top and bottom. Can someone help straighten me out?
I have not been able to find this pattern anywhere. I don't think it's Blue Willow. Any help would be appreciated it. It's a very tiny cup 2 1/4" tall. Espresso, Saki, Tea?
I have a no return policy. Recently I sold a Tiffany diamond necklace that the buyer first claimed didn't look as good in person as it did in the photos. I said I took the photos, they are the exact item and not manipulated in anyway. I also gave a detailed description of the item. The buyer then said "well, the truth is, it looks fake". I offered to return her money if she got any proof whatsoever that it is fake. Buyer then stated they dont care if its real they just dont like it and are going to get their refund. I have spoken to Ebays "high value resolutioin department" several times and was told that buyer would need to show some kind of proof that the item was fake or SNAD in order to reutrn it. I just spoke to ANother ebay rep who said that NO, everyone else I spoke to at Ebay was either wrong, or the notes they wrote said something different than what they told me. One guy said he would write to buyer stating that if the buyer provided proof the item was fake I would accept a return. NOW ebay is claiming THAT WAS NEVER TOLD TO ME AND NEVER HAPPENED! What????
Then the guy basically said if the buyer claims the item looks fake (yet refuses to even get it tested) they can return it. Period. Then the guy also said that if its fake its illegal to send it through the mail back to me. I said, you just contradicted yourself. If ithe buyer beleives it is fake how can they legally return it to me? The buyer is obviously lying and changed their story so many times as to why they should get to return an item that is authentic and accurately described just by saying "it looks fake to me but I wont attempt to prove it". I know the item is real and the buyer has already left me neg. feedback stating that it is fake.
The NO RETURN POLICY means NOTHING. Ebay will always side with the buyer even if it obvious the buyer will say anything to get a return. This is not fair to small sellers like myself. Ebay has frozen over $1000 in my paypal account until this is resolved and any way you slive it, Ebay is going to allow the buyer to return the item because she lied.
Am I the only one that thinks this is crazy?
By the time I pay EB fees and PP fees I have barely made a profit Any one else feel this way ?
I recently sold a pair of Nike foe a vey low price. To day I received an email from the buyer that the sneakers arrived and they like them and want to keep them, but want a partial refund because they are not leather as my description stated.
the first line in the description states they are a combination of leather, mesh and synergic upper. This buyer has tons of feedback and I'm guessing knows want they are doing.
how should I handle this. I know they will open a case and give me a negative.
BYW the description is as per Nike.
Say you sold an expensive item, ~$1500.00, say.
Ebay doesn't let you insure an item for more than $1000.00, so you decide to ship from the post office, forgoing your online shipping discount, in order to get that extra $500 of insurance.
But you send your significant other to the post office.
You know this is a stupid idea, but you give him a list, and you tell him to read that list, verbatim, to the post office person.
Your list says:
-The address is printed on the package. Make sure postal worker enters address into the system perfectly.
-Insure for $1500.00
-Purchase Signature Confirmation
-Save all receipts
-Send me photos of the receipts
Significant other comes home without signature confirmation, because postal worker tells him he doesn't need it, because insured mail requires a signature anyway.
BUT, that's NOT "signature confirmation"... it's not the kind of thing that you can prove online.
So, let's say the buyer receives and (someone) signs for the item, but then claims via either ebay or paypal that in fact they did not receive the item. Is there any protection?
1. Paypal: No. Paypal requires the kind of signature confirmation that can be tracked online... and the "signature service" that comes with usps insurance does not meet this requirement.
3. USPS itself? Presumably usps isn't going ot cover the cost of a "stolen" item that was signed for.
Is this a situation where you could be out the item and have to refund the buyer the $1500? Is there any protection?
Hi Fellow eBayers,
My grandfather, the late R.G. Smith, is counted among the greatest aviation artists in the history of aviation. I don't mean to brag, it is the truth. While I would love to keep all of his artwork, we have decided to sell a few originals (although we will stick mostly to selling prints).
I know it sounds cliche, but it's almost time to send our daughter to college.
To that end, I would appreciate input on the value of an original watercolor by a renowned artist. Also, what are these planes? What do you think is being depicted in this painting. Any suggestions on how to position the listing to prospective buyers?
I appreciate you thoughts and time,
I just sold my old video card yesterday and the guy didn't pay yet so I've been waiting to ship it. Now today Ebay sent me an email saying he is no longer registered on Ebay and he is a suspicious buyer. They cancelled his bids on my auction and said any associated fees have been credited back to my account.
So my question is: can I go ahead and do a second chance offer to the second highest bidder? Even though my auction is still showing in my sold items category. It says I'm still awaiting payment from that guy. So does Ebay need to close this case or something like that? Or should I just go on with the second chance offer and consider this matter settled?
My listings have been canceled due to listing violation. I've got a message in which I'm told the listings have been removed and selling limits have been placed on my account. There's no explanation for these listing violations and I have no idea what have I done wrong. Any advice?
First of all apologies for my english as it's not my native language.
To make the long story short.
About two months ago a buyer from US ordered a pair of boots from me (I am located in Poland). I've shipped them as normal (I often ship to US and never had a negative comment), but for reasons that were beyond my power the package was stuck unusually long in transit. The buyer was understandably upset as he needed the boots before Christmas. When he realised it wouldn't happen he petitioned Ebay to have his money refunded. Even though I did provide a tracking number, Ebay ruled in his favour and his payment was taken from my PayPal account. A couple of days later I got a notification that the package has finally arrived in US. I contacted the buyer and asked him kindly that since he opted out of the transaction, not to pick up the package so that USPS would ship it back to me. He agreed and told me he wouldn't pick it up.
The package arrived at his local postal office on January 2nd. When I typed the tracking number into USPS site it said that if nobody would pick up the package until February 2nd, then it would be returned to sender. So I waited. Today I've checked the tracking number again out of curiosity and saw that on February 4th the status of the package was changed to DELIVERED with the buyer's city tagged as place of destination. My first thought of course was that the guy has swindled me and took the boots at the last moment. But then I looked at the date again and noticed that the packaged was marked as "delivered" on February 4th, which is two days after it was supposed to be shipped back to me.
So now I am willing to give the guy a benefit of the doubt. Obviously I am going to contact him, but first I wanted to ask some Americans here more familiar with USPS, would he be even able to pick it up after a month has passed? Or is it possible that it's just some mix up and "delivered" is just a unfortunate status shortcut for "returned to sender"?
Any help would be appreciated.
I have some trading cards of which I have a bunch that are too low in value to sell individually. I was thinking about doing a listing where, out of a set of 60 cards, I allow the buyer to pick 10 from the list of 60 that I include in the description, once they buy the item. I would state this very clearly in both the title and description that it is for 10 cards. I would do the "multiple variations within one listing," but that is not allowed in the USA for trading cards.
Is this an acceptable listing practice? I have been researching and I can't really find much about it. If so, is there any reason why I would not want to do it (something unscrupulous buyers could take advantage of, etc.
I'd appreciate any tips!
Good evening, all!
Just wanted to get second opinion from folks with more experience on whether I'm asking too much.
The story is as follows: I bought a few items, and was presented by seller with a choice of delivery methods - one cheaper without tracking and one costlier with tracking. I picked more expensive delivery option due to my habit to watch how my parcels are moving across the world, let the seller know of my decision and paid accordingly. To be honest, I didn't asked seller specifically if he is willing to tell me tracking number, considering this being granted.
Today it is 7 days since I paid and 5 days since items were marked as shipped out, however I still got no reply from seller regarding parcel tracking number even though I've reminded him about it. So, what do you guys think, is it normal? If not, is there anything I could do about it within ebay rules more productive then just suck it up?
Thanks in advance
It is very hard to understand how to sell on ebay, for me, even though I have been doing it for three years. I always search ebay in my spare time and get very frustrated because other sellers with less feedback score than mine sell the same items that I do with many more volume and sales. What am I doing wrong? Why won't my bussiness really take off and make me weathy, like it is supposed to do? Other ebay members sell thousands and thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, while my items, mostly, sit untouched gathering dust, can anyone suggest anything to make my sales really jump? thanks!
Any help would be grateful !!
May I have all your sugestion please
I have sent an item by priority mail from france to USA and I mention customer should recieve it within 3-7 days.

The status shown as "the parcel could not be delivered. it will be available in the address's post office "
I have all evidence document tracking number and it was arrived on time as i was mention and ofcourse my customere were informed.

- anybody can suggest me what should I do next I already try to contact my customer but no reply back from her ?
-I have all the evidence that I already sent an item. will I get the money back by any chance?
Searched the forums, and can't find this exact question.
What is the best way to package a DVD for mailing? I ship via USPS.
So the choice is: Small Flat-Rate Box vs. Padded Flat-Rate Envelope.
Which is optimal, to prevent any kind of damage (bending/pressure/cracking) to the DVD cardboard slipcase and plastic casing? It's a 2-pack DVD set.
I thought Small Flat-Rate Box was made for DVDs, but it seems to be straining at the sides. It looks like there's a small "bulge" at the sides. Although, is it better to be absolutely "tight," to prevent damage?
If I use the Padded Flat-Rate Envelope, I suppose I'll have to put stiffeners in the envelope, or create a makeshift box to protect the DVD.
What do you do? Please be kind . . . I do realize this is persnickety. Just want this DVD to arrive in pristine condition. :-)
I sold a fairly expensive item last night and the buyer (who had just paid) asked me if I could send it to another, nearby address (which I think is probably his work address.)
I told him, sorry, no can do, it has to be to the address he has registered at paypal. I told him I could refund his money, and then he could change it, buy it again, etc.... (No reply from him on that.)
Is that the only way (unless I just feel lucky and want to risk losing the $$$ by sending it to the non-confirmed address ?)
Or can he change his ship-to address now, after the sale, thereby allowing me to send it to the new address and still be 'protected'?
Hello... Yesterday, 8 february 2016, at 08.54 AM, clock of Moldova, I paid for something but I don't know for what. I dont received any emails about this... What's happens? I know is not so much but I need to know for what I paid 1$? . Thank you an advance.
I have selling limit as I am a new seller. I need to know, if I list an item in auction format, what happens when the bid reaches the selling limit?

We are serving a three day restriction for nonsense, our first one in like 5 years or more.
Trying to talk to a supervisor is pointless.
We have been on here since year one!
Over 12k feedback, 1 negative in last year
Always top rated etc.
We are the kind of seller eBay should want, not the kind to push away.
As I was explaining to the sales rep, whom I am not sure understood me anyway,
every year we sell less and less on eBay, because we do not feel we are treated like a valued customer
First, all of our Toys, Books, CDs, Video Games, DVDs, etc went somewhere else....
Then after nonsense, we actually become a licensed auction house with live Auctioneer.... so there went more than 50% of our listings
I do still like eBay, and we do list some collectibles on here, but I do not like being treated like an idiot.
You would think in todays age of DATA and information, someone would see a report of declining sellers, and say "Wow, I wonder what is going on with that seller, we used to make $60,000 a year in fees off that guy, now we make a couple grand, and wait, his store subscription is lower, etc, etc"
Well, that is my rant for the moment, in three days we will list a few things, unless I sell them first elsewhere

I am having an 10% discount sale this weekend and someone purchased an item from my store this week. To be fair, I decided to offer the discount to buyer. The buyer has not paid, therefore, I am trying to send an invoice, but I cannot reduce the price. Additionally, I am offering free shipping. Is there a way for me to reduce the amount the buyer pays by $2.00 or 10%?
Thank you for your help.
I have a buyer who has paid for five books, including full price shipping for each book. I'd like to refund them some of the shipping fees, but if I do so via Paypal, does eBay refund the final value fee? If not it changes my calculation of how much I should refund.
For example they bought five books at $3.25 shipping each, for a total of $19.25 shipping. If I want to charge them $6.00 shipping, and I refund them $13.25 from Paypal, will eBay still charge me the 9% (or whatever it is) final value fee on that $13.25? If so I only want to refund about $12 instead.
Thanks for any help with this. I must say it would be nice if I could look at an individual completed order and see what the eBay fees were; that would answer a lot of questions.
Help! I don't know what this is! It's solid wood, heavy, two knob handles, rolling pin style, total 6" length, letters and numbers, all carved. Each vertical column can be moved. Embossing stamp? Crafting tool? Doesn't look like it has been used, no residue from clay, ink, etc. My google search came up empty. Any help would be most appreciated ~ Thanks, Britt from Santa Barbara
Hello all and thank you for being there!
I purchased an item which I did receive. I inadvertantly opened the request an "Did not receive my item". I have not been able to work things out with the seller, and have just asked ebay to step in (having waited for the required time to pass). If I close this request, will I still be able to open the "Item not as described" request?
I have included the above information in my summary to ebay, however as that may take several days, I wanted to request direcion from the real experts here.
What do they mean and how do I do this.
My problem consists in being unable to bid for anything on the site after I bid some times in an item.
I bid like 10 times on an item and then got a message saying eBay was blocking my bids.
That message tells me to contact eBay and then insert a PIN.
Is this the only way to solve my problem? Contacting eBay?
Will I get unblocked after some hours?
Can Paypal Micropayments only be used for DIGITAL goods, where no product is shipped?

How can I (in good conscience} call it free shipping when all I'm doing is adding this cost to my item?
Even if it's calculated by buyer location.
Or,I want to sell an item for 10.00 with free shipping but it costs 15.00 to ship it?
I am either misrepresenting myself or losing my tail.
I would really appreciate a straight forward answer. Please explain this to me.
i hAVE BEEN TRYING TO BID ON AN ITEM... I CAN WRITE IN THE BID... THEN AN OPPS COMES UP AND SAYS THE SELLER WILL NOT ACCEPT BID
Buyer created account just before purchasing my "buy it now" item. Search on shipping address shows a school, not a residence. My listing included accepting returns for a refund. Buyer did pay right away through paypal. Even though they paid, I'm still nervous about this transaction. The item is a film camera body, is it possible the buyer is going to cannabilize the camera for parts and then return for a refund?
i need my money back
I have multi items with this pattern and I can't fine any info on it. Can someone please help me or tell me where to go? Thank you very much.
