A few fave finds from the goodwill oulet

I'm hoping to really get in gear and get listing next week. Hope to do at least 100 listings. Here are a few of my favorite finds from the goodwill outlet this week


Pier one vase... keeping this one. 


Vintage cinderella pillow case
Any idea on the year of this??

I cannot find any other cinderella items that are similar.. any ideas on age etc?

I also got two brand new bath and body works candles that retail for 20$ each. I will be keeping those as well.
It was a pretty slow day. Hopefully the garage sales this weekend will be better!

A look into my Ebay Room -- Where i work and how i store my ebay inventory

So today i decided to share a look at my "Ebay Room". It is where i store my inventory and work. The condo we live in is a one bedroom with a bonus room off the kitchen which i have turned into my office. Its a bit messy so no judgement lol. So without further ado....my ebay room:

The view from the doorway
(and my kitty Mali (after Maleficent) relaxing in the sun)

My Inventory shelves... this is all stuff that is currently unlisted...YIKES!
I love these shelves. 30$ at walmart! Sturdy and practical. 

My Desk Area (the messy part)
The black storage carts house my shipping envelopes, scale, tape, scissors, etc. etc.
The white shelf over here Is where i house the items that are currently listed.
As you can see im slacking.

And just for fun....

Mali Helping me work. 

Mali And Charlie relaxing in the sun =)

So how and where do you store your inventory?
Do you have an "ebay room" or area?

So now what?

So i sold an item using Ebay's global shipping problem. I shipped as normal to the "shipping hub". The buyer contacted me a week and a half or so later. So i tracked it and found it had arrived at and departed the hub but had not been delivered. I let her know.. all was good. Then she messages me a few days later saying she received an empty package with only a packing slip! WHAT?! How is that possible. So she wants a refund. Okay, the thing only sold for 8 bucks and i paid a dollar... sure. So i go to issue a refund and i cant because the funds are being held because the buyer has already opened and escalated a case against me.

So now what?

Im not sure what to do here. I was willing to do the refund but the buyer opened AND escalated the case before i had even been messaged. So Im just waiting for Ebay i guess. I am supposed to be contacted within 48 hours... Will this affect my top rated status? Anyone know what to expect next?

This is kind of really freaking me out.
