Swarovski Color: Greige (284)

New colour released 2010/2011.

I have just come across a bit of news that feels pretty exciting and could prove to be profitable. A new buy and sell site has opened up that hopefully will challenge ebay's undesirable dominance.

Ebay's 911 Attack on Sellers

Ebay's 911 Attack on Sellers

Feebay attacks again

Ebay is on the move again to make you love to hate it. In an email to all sellers ~ an email that is an insult to our intellect ~ they are announcing that as of 10 September 2009, they are providing "improvements" to their Australian ebay sellers with their "new Stores packages". So really, though they have tried to avoid the exact date, it is a 11 September attack where ebay has taken the leading role of being Osama bin Ladin.

Ebay Ashamed of their Feedback Rating?

What is Ebay's Feedback Rating Anyway?

Almost every, if not all, auction/marketpool selling venue on the internet has some feedback mechanism. Usually it is a two-way street - i.e. sellers about buyers, buyers about sellers. The big exception that I know of is ebay (but of course) who in recent years decided in their "infinite wisdom" that sellers did not have the right to leave feedback about their buyers. All very well and good since eBay holds the ball and whip.

ebay took down a number of my listings saying that the Titles I choose were infringing their policies, in particular, "keyword spamming".

The apple features prominently on the front cover of the first book in the series, entitled "Twilight". As stated by the author, Stephenie Meyer, the apple is the forbidden fruit which represents the forbidden nature of the love between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. This love, that seems so contrary to nature, is also examplified in the "Lion and Lamb" symbols where Edward Cullen is represented by the Lion and Bella Swan by the Lamb.
