The Never Ending eBay Sale

See this thing? Pretty, right? At least I think so. I bought it in a lot of wall stuff at an auction long ago. I think the frame is just beautiful. It hung on one of my walls for a year or two. Then I decided I was tired of it and listed it. It sold. Then the buyer didn't pay. It sold again, this time for more money. Then the buyer didn't pay. It sold for the 3rd time for $36. GUESS WHAT? I just got the notice that eBay opened an upaid buyer case. Sigh....it is jinxed? 

I also heard from a recent buyer that her item didn't work. It wasn't something that I would consider easily breakable. In nice words I told the buyer that I tested it before I sold it and it worked great. Would she mind checking one more time to make sure she put the batteries in correctly? If it didn't work after that I would refund her. I was worried that would offend her but I am so glad I sent that email. She said she didn't realize it used batteries and that it works great.  I was both LOL & Whew!

I am off from my job the next few days. I have to finish going through the estate sale stuff. I sold enough locally & on some Facebook groups to get my money back and there is a LOT left to go. I have been sending a car load a week to a friend that does consignment. Even paying 50% consignment fees it is worth it, as everything we receive back will be profit. I am trying to hurry & empty out the barn. I need the space. Mama went to another estate sale yesterday and told them we would be happy to make an offer on the leftovers and they gave the impression they would call us back. There was a lot of old glass left. Buying leftovers may turn into a never-ending source of inventory. It is a LOT of work though.

Why don't you list that thing with Immediate Payment?

I rarely do that because regularly someone will email to ask if they can buy an item on Saturday and pay on Friday then I have to go in and bypass the automatic resolution center settings. But I may very well do it on this silly thing, thanks for the idea!
