Yes. I watched the last few minutes fully expecting a bit of a surge. No surge. Great win, a woodie, basic set, X-10 with counters, etc...

Congratulations!!! :D

stapled 3rd chainmail > basic set + X10. watching as well but no interest. terrible time to finish + terrible photos + no foreign bidders = bargain price

Not a bad lot of items, even though S&H is high, as they would all fit in a large flat rate box. I really loved the irony of the seller's name versus the name of the current high bidder :lol:

We just have to get these two together :wink:

I really kicked myself over missing this one. I found this listing by chance and I was waiting to bid, but I was stuck at work & got home & logged on to eBay about a minute after the auction ended. I was sooooo pissed :evil:



These mono modules go for about $30.00 each recently and I just can not bring myself to go that high, but these went for a very nice price :cry:

I even tried contacting the buyer & seller, but the buyer was not even interested in making a quick $20 to let them go. Oh well, have to keep waiting . . . and waiting . . . and waiting . . .

These are mine.  I just revised the grade on the Dwarven Glory (from NM to VF).  While I note in the original posting that there is rust on the interior staples (that hasn't transferred to the page) I still graded it NM.  Per acaeum guidelines an NM grade item can't have any rust on any staple.  VF grade does permit a little rust, as long as the rust hasn't transferred (as is the case with my copy of TDG).  Apologies for the misgrade.  I've offered to provide either free insurance or take $2.00 off shipping (assuming no other items were purchased) for whomever wins the auction.  I looked at my other auctions and this is the only misgrade I've made.

I've been meaning to ask, but what's the deal with the rather high S&H charges?  $10.25 for Priority Mial when its going to cost you $4.60 to ship it?  :?

Well some of the extra is for a shipping box (I use hard cardboard boxes that cost about 1.25 each to ship).   I think the biggest problem is that I used the cost service and didn't offer first class as an option (so everything is listed at the priority price) -- I'll try and see if I can fix it so first class is listed as an option.  

On the plus side if you buy multiple items it all ships for the same price (Ashes box set and insurance issues excepted).

Edit: Won't let me add First Class at this time.   I'll figure something out with whoever wins the items to reduce shipping costs.  First time I've sold on ebay (previously I just bought).   Shipping is too high internationally too using the in-built calculator and no way to turn it off w/o cancelling and restarting the auctions.

Priority Mail boxes are free though.  You don't need anything other than that, except maybe some bubble wrap.

I generally use these, inside the boxes.  I don't support bubble wrap :-)

Well I have some from when they were a little cheaper price went up since I bought them last -- but may need to buy a few more depending on who buys what.   But in any event as noted I'll figure out the shipping with the buyer -- I agree it is higher than it should be right now.   I should have done a flat fee for the US and another for International.

Make sure international shipping really is too high before you turn it off.  You'd be surprised how much it costs these days.  You are right that a flat rate works well in the US.

Can't figure out how to turn off the calculator w/o redoing the entire auction which I'm not going to do.  I'll probably just add a note saying that I'll try to figure out cheaper shipping if an international buyer picks something up.

The Lost Caverns of Tsojconth Wintercon V




** expired eBay auction **




From the auction listing:

Great module is complete but someone used a three hole puncher on it. All material is still readable and no words or pictures were punched through.

Possibly the same copy that started this thread three years ago (note the newbie post from that Deimos3428 guy at the time, too!):
