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.

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.

I assumed that the one negative would automatically be deleted after a year however it remained in place. I called eBay customer support…Continue
I've been selling on eBay for about 8 years and just went thru my worst experience on the site. I sold a vintage Waltham watch to this buyer Powercreditbay on November 13, 2011; this buyer is a resident of China and told me to ship the watch to another person in Brooklyn, New York. I don't ship overseas and have overseas buyers' blocked, my auctions are available for USA shipping only. I was paid thru PayPal on Sunday, November 14th and planned to ship the watch on Monday morning. On…Continue
