<img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> It's Pinkie from pinkies-closet & auctionsforyou. I am never on here and I don't think people who are selling an odd solid know about the site either. Just you collectors.
I was interested in all the postings. I have a code in my html in my auctions that blocks people so they cannot right click and copy the pictures or the description. You can go to the top of the page and copy/paste; but it does deter a few people. When someone has copied my pics; or description or both (I sold a guy a Lancome set and he turned around and copied my pics and description and relisted it but I killed his auction with ebay right away because he had 5 other items up for auction he had just purchased and did the same thing). BUT normally, being a nice e-partner, I email them asking them nicely to remove my “intellectual property” quoting the ebay TOS and in most cases, they don't even have a CLUE that's it's not kosher. THey have most likely been surfing through life letting someone else do all their work – in every area. If they don't answer, are rude or don't take them down, I do notify ebay and they kill the auction. So, they lose the listing fees and learn a lesson but I do give them the benefit of the doubt.
I do sell on ebay and try to be the best seller; but I know the origin of all my items and you can see by my feedback that I am honest. In general terms; if it smells bad; it normally is. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ /> If you see it again, email the seller. I emailed someone this week who didn't know someone had copied their listing dot per dot and they were so happy I let them know.
I am DONE buying on ebay, even if I love selling. I have a horrible track record of buying on ebay though…. even buying from good FBK people.
<img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ /> My one negative fbk was from someone who I bought a Lilly sweater from NWT and it came with a huge white spot on the back where they had tried to remove a spot and rubbed the silk so it was iced. She was so nasty when I asked to return it and would only allow the return if I lost postage both ways; so when I filed a fraud complaint on ebay against her; she left me a neg and even 5 months later out of the blue left me another nasty followup comment and emailed me horrible threats. Obviously a disturbed person. I resold the sweater recently by showing the spot and accurately describing it. It was because it was 3/4 sleeves she also forgot to mention… look silly on me as I am 5'8″ and thin. Looks like a shrunken sweater. I also just bought another Lilly from a seller with 1900 fbks who said it was in excellent condition. He had a few neg. from misrepresenting his items. It came and you would be embarrased to drop it off at the good will. It had so many stains, ink marks and a big hole in the back. You wouldn't even say it was poor condition. It was rag bag condition. And, I paid $55 for it. He did refund my money, but wouldn't refund the postage, so when he filed to get back his final value fees, I refused to allow it and he lost about the postage amount on ebay from the listing fees and final value fees. <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> I didn't leave him neg because he has a history of retalitory fbk.
LISTINGS! I am listing the rest of my porcelains MIB this week. Some of the boxes are not mint, but some are great. All the items are perfect; so if any of you collect those; let me know.
I also am listing a few color story scarves if anyone collects EL scarves. Take care and have fun on here!!! Monie
