Burberry Coat

Ugh.  It has been four days since I  put the coat up on eBay.  There have been 50 views and 10 people are watching the auction, but no bids.  If I don't get any bids my girlfriend will be sorely disappointed.  I am sure I will get one, but since it ends on a Monday morning, I don't think it will go as high as I expected.  It is my fault because I miscounted the days for the five day auction.  I thought it would end on Sunday, when everyone is home to bid on it.
Anyway wish me luck!

Beautiful Burberry Coat with Peter Pan Collar

So, my girlfriend wants me to sell her coat on eBay.  It seems like it will be able to sell for a lot more than she got it from.  It is a twenty dollar Value Village find, that I hope to be able to sell for about 200.  We will see.  I just have to take some pictures (maybe she will model it) and put it up.  Now that my eBay rating is above 25 I hope that my payments will not stay pending for three weeks.

Money Is For Realz

It took frigging forever, but the money is now beyond the horrible pending status in my PayPal account.  It took about 3 weeks,  but now i will use it to buy a graphics card for a computer I will be building.  I wish to have a desktop for playing Skyrim.

Shipping Time

Well,  I sent the seller an invoice about one minute after the auction closed and they paid about three minutes after that.  But then it was Saturday and I couldn't ship it until today.  I have got the coat all packed up nicely in a box I got from a shipment I received earlier.  I wonder how much it will cost to ship?
Ah,  about 38 bucks.  Brutal.

Sold (Again)

It sold again after a 1 day auction.  For only 212 bucks. Sad face here.  There is no good protection for sellers on Ebay.  If I wanted to press the issue it could take a whole lot of time,  and I want some money for Christmas!  Anyways life continues unabated.

Bidder's Remorse

Hah,  well apparently the bidder "accidentally" bid on my coat.   They sent a bunch of messages over 3 hours of how they did not bid on the item.  Well, you see, things don't just bid on themselves.  This person is an idiot!  I will publish their name later.
