Or maybe Josephinenhutte or a maker such as Fritz Heckert perhaps?

It's really pretty.

How can you tell the difference between which end starts first on the handle and is this only for a strap handle like the one on my jug?.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Edinburgh Crystal Quality
« Last post by brucebanner on May 27, 2017, 10:20:26 AM »
I forgot to include the listing fee, the actual fee for having a shop, some times its extra for more caragories, packaging costs, tax on packaging, petrol, repairs to the car, business insurance for the house, public liability insurance for the house, your doing well at 15% I must be doing something wrong.

They all add up. It's pointless selling anything below 10 quid,

This morning I paid nearly £40 for printer ink and paper, £30 for bubble wrap and packing tape, i can go through 36 rolls in 2 months.

Ebay need some serious competition

If you sell regular on ebay for profit your classed as a business seller.
Ebay does not actually enforce that policy so it is effectively pointless.

As a business seller ebay's fees end up costing me around 10%, paypal charge approximately another 5%. I charge international buyers the cost of postage plus the 10% ebay adds on - it is not difficult to work out. So around 15% of all sales go in fees, there are of course many other costs along the way.

That is the cost of doing business, if you stand at a fair you have to pay your pitch fees plus all the other expenses, if you have a shop you will have rates, rent, etc to find...
