Oh dear. What can I say? This has to be one of the least successful days of Paul's ebay life so far as he had several auctions ending today and found not one buyer.
You might be forgiven for thinking I am repeating myself but I'm afraid it is Paul who is repeating himself by relisting the items that he failed to sell on September 2nd. The books were:
The Advanced Airbrush Book by Cecil Misstear with Helen Scott-Harman, Saucy Seaside Postcards by Alan Wykes, The Encyclopedia of Yachting by Peter Johnson and Design and Sell Toys Games & Crafts by Filis Frederick.
Paul did originally have two copies of the Saucy Seaside Postcard book and he listed them both on the same day. One sold, the other didn't.
The other three books were all left on the shelf (as it were) when Paul listed them the first time so I really don't think he should be surprised that they failed to sell this time - especially when he did nothing to "jazz up" the listings or change things in any way.
Come on Paul! You're an expert ebayer and I'm sure you can do better than that.
There's simply no point in me listing any of the details as they are all identical to those given on September 2 when these items were first listed so I hope you'll forgive me for aggregating the information. All the books were listed for either £4 or £5 (the book about games and toys was the cheaper one, all of the others were a fiver) and the postage costs were either £3 or £3.50 (the yachting book was £3.50, all the others were £3) so it would have cost someone £19 + £12.50 to get hold of all the books.
Will Paul relist the books. Will he continue to chase this £19 profit or will he admit defeat and move on? I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.
In the mean time I'm sure Paul will enjoy owning his books for just a little longer. Not a lot!
