Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

We acquired this vase many years ago from an estate that had lots of Native American regalia.  I don't know if this vase was made in pottery class or if it's native american.  Doesn't look like any of the standard issue native american pottery, just wondering what others may think.

 

It's about 8.75" tall.

Hello,

 

I have this Fenton vase that I am trying to determine the correct color of. I'm trying to figure between Cranberry Opalescent or Peach Blow Opalescent Overlay. The reason I'm questioning it perhaps not being cranberry is because of the color of the inside of the ruffle. Not quite a pink. And when I look at the books I have, the cranberry opalesents seems to only have the white on the tips of the hobnails.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just got my first empty box scam.  Guess I was due..

 

So the buyer buys 2 endmills(heavy)  I ship them USPS priority flat rate box with tracking and weight.  He sends me a message saying the box was empty and he wants his money back.  I have never had a problem with USPS on something like this and thought this could be a scam. I ask him if he opened the box and it was emtpy. Trying to paint him into a corner, knowing that the package was weighed.  He does not answer.

 

He then says he can send me a picture of the box...In the picture there is a sticker that says"package received empty"  At this point Im thinking that since the endmills are heavy maybe they fell out of the box and I will have to open a claim with USPS.  Then upon further inspection of the picture.  There were like 8-10 stamps on it?????USPS doesnt put stamps on the flatrate box.  So I ask the buyer why are there stamps on the box? No answer except he wants his money back. 

 

I ask him if he had it sent to someone else and then they mailed it to him?  No answer.

 

I go down to the USPS and ask the manager if any of this makes sense.  He tells me without a doubt its a scam. 

 

So I tell the buyer that if he had it sent to someone else and then they shipped it to him, I had nothing to do with it.  I  shipped the items, it was weighed, tracked and delivered. 

 

He then goes on saying that I am scamming him and eventually he just gives up.... I think it is over and move on.  I wanted to report him to ebay but didn't want to risk a reprisal from him or a friend.  So I let it be.

 

Now a few days later he leaves me bad feedback????And apparently ebay changed the rebuttal option.  So now I cant even respond to this bad FB?????

 

I reported buyer and now am waiting for ebay to open so I can try and get this bad FB removed...SIgh there goes another few hours on this stupid scam on a 20.00 dollar item.............Smiley Sad

Empty Box scam twarted, or not:(

I sold a doll and it arrived perfectly fine. Now the buyer is angry because claims other "accessories/ toy figures" that were not described or included in the listing but appeared in photos. Now she opened a claim against me for "item not as described" but in this case, everything I included was shipped to her and received. Do you think ebay will push me to accept the return for her mistake of not readind/asking if the other toys were included? I don't think is fair for me to pay shipping since I sent everything that was included and that was written in the description section. Also, this buyer asked me to help her avoid custom fees, do you think that is enough to lose ebay's protection?

Selling discussion

Hi, first time to the forum....  Been on ebay since 2000, been selling for a few years off & on.  I have a number of Coach items for sale @ auction/BIN.  A potential buyer started asking questions, is interested in 5 or 6 of them.  Great, right?  Then wants a lower price, "that's so much to spend, but I love them...."  SO, I offer to end the auctions on the ones they're interested in & save them $5 on each one.  Great, right?  Then, "the shipping (Priority) is too high, they're all so light, why is it so much?"  (I only charge the Priority price, no extra)  I say I'll ship them all for the one price; that'll save you x$ more than if you'd pay the extra per item.  Then: NO response.  OK, fine.  I check the buyer out, & wham, this person is selling only Coach, not cheap, & A LOT of it.  A few days later, I get this "I still really want 5 of them, I just can't make up my mind about spending so much $ on Coach....."  This person is just jerking me around to get an even lower price, & I'm over it.  I haven't responded, but I want to, saying, "Haven't decided what, wether you're going to keep them, or RESELL them?"  Am I being too dramatic here, since it's their right after buying something to do with it as they wish?  Thanks very much!
