It is impossible to resell an item for a good price once the history shows a "best offer accepted" and the same item is then re-listed, as the item is then de-valued.Very few of my items are perfect, and I try to describe and disclose any issues I see. However, what my opinion is of an item may differ from yours. I do this for a living after losing my full time job and hope you feel that I have provided top-notch service. I return the favor of feedback upon receipt of feedback from all buyers. I also cannot control what the post office does with and/or to the package once it leaves my possession. Despite packaging that would withstand most tornados, the Post Office will occasionally completely crush and/or puncture a package. This allows buyers to choose speed over value, if desired. Parcel Post takes 7-9 days. Why would either of us want to give the Post Office 3 times longer to destroy a package?
If you feel that I deserve any less than 5 stars, please let me know why so I can improve my future performance.
