It wasn't a big ticket item but our second offer was accepted as the auction closed. $16, $1 more than our "limit" but it became more precious as the palaver went on. It started at $25, was raised to $30 then reduced to $26. nuts.

Yeah, I know, why all the fuss over a few bucks. I guess it was a "principle of the thing" deal plus a learning process. I'd much rather people just said what they wanted and I could decide whether it was worth that to me or not.

Oh, handbag. That, along with shoes, moves out of the rational-rhyme-or-reason-bidding category.

I have less faith in the goofbid tool thing though -the item shows up and the accepted price shows as the Listed price and the accepted price is a made up number :/

So it finally arrived today. estimated arrival date was Oct 30 -not too bad you may say, but one of the things the seller did when fucking about with the listing was to change it to "fast and free" shipping which gets them higher prominence.

We paid on the 24th and they didn't even ship it until the 1st. It started in New Jersey and last night it had made it to Philly.

So I sent the seller a very polite note expressing my disappointment in this aspect of the transaction and today they refunded $5. And it arrived. So overall a win, but what a palaver! Hebe loves it though. She's made up it has her name everywhere and it's not something we made or had printed

The tool is called Goofbid: http://www.goofbid.com/ebay_best_offers_tool.html
Just bumping this because this is a nifty little tool but it took me a while to find it again

my current victim accepts less than half offers and only about 20% reduction :/. Their stuff is overpriced. Especially for me because it's "collectable" but I want it for craft.
