My Childrens' Toy Musk Ox was Sold to Another Thrift Store Client

I yesterday went to a thrift store that I used to visit several years ago. The store was very busy with clients on a Sunday and I spent a long time looking thru lots of collectibles.  The only things I found were a very clean used childrens' Musk Ox toy that had a baby Ox on top and a Yamaha Baroque Alto recorder.  The Musk Ox was large and I asked the cashier to hold it for me.  I later walked to the cashier and went to pay for both when I sadly found out that they'd sold my Musk Ox to…

Buying and Collecting Orrefors Swedish Art Glass

 My glass collection began surprisingly enough with an award offered by the Acura dealer where I used to work; our employees had a choice of 5-6 different items such as watches, a camera, a personal radio, jewelry and a Lancelot large crystal bowl from Orrefors.  Of the roughly 110 employees at the dealership I was the only one to select the Orrefors Lancelot bowl.  It is a magnificent and beautiful design by Erika Lagerbielke; over the years I've amassed a large collection of Orrefors…

eBay Feedback Score Modification -- Help for Sellers with Negative Feedback

  I'd been on eBay for at least 9 years, had only one negative feedback from a buyer about a year ago; it took  me a full year to have my score move from 97 up to 98.9.  A member's eBay feedback score is supposed to be calculated based on the prior 12 month period, however 12 months had passed and the one negative feedback was still affecting my score.  I assumed that the one negative would automatically be deleted after a year however it remained in place.  I called eBay customer support…
