All About Me
What everyone should know about me
I love all things beautiful, old, flowers and the color pink!
Things I sell
Things I buy
Things I collect
I have a retail management background grounded in the book business. I love merchandising, management and books.
I disagree with eBay's policy of only accepting Paypal, and will accept checks, cash and money orders as long as I can get away with it.
eBay has forced sellers to have a very liberal return policy, and although I agree with returns in theory, application is sometimes difficult for the small seller. Let's say you are selling ten pieces of Brighton jewelry--they all sell, there is lots of competition, bidding and excitement over all the choices. Someone buys a necklace, decides they don't want it and returns it. Now I have ONE Brighton necklace to sell, getting only a small amount of people looking at it, with no excitement or competition. How well is that piece going to do? It's happened before and it's not good. Or during the holiday--the busiest time, the time when people are willing to part with their hard earned money, and something gets returned in January! Arghgh! That being said, if there is something wrong, not as described or a problem, I do offer and allow returns. But buy smart!
Obviously, feedback is very important on so many levels. It's extra important for me because once I receive POSITIVE fb, I can clean things up and finally delete my photos from my server and from my computer. I can move forward and not worry anymore--I know you received your item, I know you love it, I know it didn't break or never arrive. It's a huge weight off my shoulders and it keeps me going. Part of why I do this is to put treasures in the hands of others and it's very gratifying when I hear of that happening via positive fb. If you don't leave fb, I never know and it feels like unfinished business. Thank you in advance for taking the time to leave positive feedback. :)
