    Just thought of another. They have a start bid or best offer (Best offer is lower than start bid by ebay rules). You bid a few dollars under and they decline and counter offer with a much higher amount.

    I once sent in a best offer of 90, and they rejected it. It sold for 85 (not to me) I made a fair offer, they were greedy. They were probably sure I would at least come in and bid my 90 and keep the war going, but I turn my back when that happens

    Hi Bouschie, thanks a lot.

    Unfortunately I can't find you, even with an advanced search.

    Would you mind giving me a link to one of your current listings so I can add you as a favourite seller that way?

    There used to be a thread here where people shared their ebay id, but it was closed down I believe, probably because too many used it to promite their ebay sales, without actually being a participating member of the forum. As I recall, you cant use the ebay "search" box to look up member names, you have to use the ebay "app" on your phone, which offers a search for a user option, and even then It may not show anything if that user has nothing for sale at the moment. Im listed as meadfulthings, and I am 80% sure I exist, but I cant find myself. Maybe I should meditate more

    Hi Steve,

    I'll have a look for you and Leonard on my phone.

    As a side note, I don't know if you saw my last save of the day.

    If you look at the razor you might recognize the Barbers delight that I bought from you - excellent razor and still shaving great.

    Glad to hear the Delight is still "delightful "
    Always happy to know the kids are doing well

    I have meadfulthings as a saved seller on the ebay app, meaning you not only exist you sell enough cool stuff that I regularly check your listings. In that very small respect at least you are a celebrity.
