Trash Solids On Ebay
Posted 06 April 2004 - 09:12 PM
This is really hard .
On one hand I am tempted to bid on the artichoke as an extra for my veggie stand display but on the other hand I hate to give newbies the wrong idea that these solids are OK.
Some of her solids (I think) were all right so maybe it is just everyman for itself, buyer beware, man the lifeboats, full speed ahead and just do your best.
If the artichoke stays under $50 all bets are off. Greed will overtake good sense.
I will not buy any that are broke , missing parts ,etc.( even if it is a rare prototype).

This is not worth the mental stress. If it looks like a solid, you like it, you can use it, and it's in ok condition for your purposes...then BID on the darn thing!
Again...Jacky....SIX PACK. Got it?

As for the newbies, I"ll have to let them know to watch out for Lisa trying to palm off an (un)contented cat . . . she was last seen tugging at it's head . . . . .

Did I forget to mention I have a cat's meow for sale? The body is pink but the head is blue, it is actually the head of the Imperial dog ivory solid! It is indeed a very rare prototype.
Anyone interested can make me offers.

Lisa, that is how Dr Frankenstein started. I think I'm going to have to insist on Jack sending in a new photograph of himself every week. He has to be holding a newspaper with a current date of course just so we know you aren't messing with him. Anyway, how can you improve on perfection??

OH MY GOSH!!! THAT ROULETTE WHEEL IS AWFUL!!
No, Michelle. It's not your fever!! It's a travesty!
Take care of yourself .....sounds as if you need a "swig" of Hadecol or Bubba's "Lightnin" huh.....Martha???
Last words from Garland, Texas........It doesn't even look like the Roulette Wheel!

Guess it's more of them warehouse sales.
This doesn't seem like misrepresentation. Misrepresentation occurs when mint condition solids are pictured and the seller sends a broken one instead. And/or seller lies about the condition etc. In this case, the items are clearly pictured. They say "mint" probably because they look physically okay--meaning not scratched or dented. I assume they don't collect or know much. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's I see it.
I agree these items are junk. I don't like incomplete/damaged solids. I bought a couple in the past because they were hard to find (pear with missing stone).
Actually, I worry about solid sellers who list an Avon and say "Estee Lauder" instead. Getting tired of seeing those auctions pop up during searches.

Thank goodness you didn't bid on that piece of junk! OOps........

Please don't feel dumb. I had to look at the Roulette Wheel for about 5 minutes before I could figure out that the "Finial" on the top was missing. Or the "Spinner" or whatever one calls it.
You're a Collector, so you obviously know what Mint is...using that term for ANY of her solids is total misrepresentation. Jacky and Denise are 100% correct. She could easily say..."useable but keep it hidden from your relatives"....or..."nice gift for the doggy to play with" or something that would make more sense than Mint, don't you agree? Oh God, I hope I'm not stirring things up again.
Hey, Greyhound....was thinking about you last weekend in Philly. Saw a beautiful statue of what I thought (DUH) was a greyhound, but it turned out to be something called a "Whippet". Then Horchow's catalog had another one standing, and it's a gorgeous dog, but it's ribs are so obvious you just want to feed the poor thing. (Maybe it was living at the castle with only a headless cat to keep it company?)
Can you please tell me the major difference between a Greyhound and a Whippet. And I agree...the way I saw them featured made beautiful pieces of art.
Would appreciate your expertise in this to make me feel a teensy bit more intelligent. Did I mention I once tried to pet a huge cat on the street in New York, when my son informed me to run....it was a rat?
Oh well...look forward to your explanation of the differences!

Well Michele, you had also better sort out the headless cat! Go back to the correct column and check it out. They say Lisa is on the prowl!
So forget what you are supposed to be doing and just do it! LOL
