Hi all, the statement "not a trader" was purely a tongue in cheek statement aimed at the many 'glassy friends' I have made over the years, particularly the Whitefriars collectors who 'pop' in here from time to time :sun: Anyone who knows me will understand the statement "more a friend of collectors" and "finder of 'rare' items.
The post was started originally probably out of frustration, having just sold a perfectly good correctly described item only to be faced with the 'threat' of a negative feedback or lose money on an item, because the buyer knows even less than I do
Seems to have turned into a debate on whether I should be registered as a business or not. To be honest (again anyone who knows me) knows I have sold a lot of low and items over the years and the odd 'gem' mainly again to whitefriars collectors. I am well aware of the morals of selling on ebay on the very rare occasions I have to make a refund, mainly the odd 'lost' or broken items I always refund in full including return postage.
To be honest it's not a problem to me if I never sell another piece of glass again, pretty sure though a business seller would not be very happy if they had 3 or 4 of these a week, seems to be a simple question aimed at the knowledgeable Mdina folk, Sue and Suzy John in particular who have been more than helpful to me in the past as turned into a bit of a personal scrutiny of my affairs, a debate on the moral ground between buyers and sellers
which was never my intention, where's that shovel :phew:
