In August 2013 I resigned from posting on this forum due to the amount of grief and bs I received for doing something an overwhelming majority considered unethical... However as you stated in your Forbes article the seller of the Ripon was happy with the $20 as she had nothing into it... Well the exact same situation with the Fingerless in 2013 regardless if it was an auction and asked to flip to a buy it now... The seller started a bid at $35, meaning she would have probably been more than satisfied with the start bid as it was profit. It wouldn't have mattered if I offered $1000; there still would have been a large and vast majority jealous of the fact that a $5000-$8000 mitt sold for $1000; not to mention those that were protecting their original investments that owned fingerless gloves and had paid $7000+ for theirs. There will always be a person asking if they'll accept a buy it now when auctions run and there's always going to be a group of sellers willing to accept it as they may have nothing into the item and want the cash flow instead of waiting for auction to end. With that being said, if a person goes ahead and has a buy it now for $20 on a rare mitt; how many are willing to go above and beyond to inform the seller they made a mistake. Because realistically I don't think the seller would truthfully like to know her twenty dollar bill sale less ebay and paypal 13% was really worth a min of $500. Do we feel sorry for her? I for one will never spend $7000 on a mitt, nor would I spend $1000 on a mitt as it's not realistic within my budget not to mention my fiance would kill me. With that being said this business has and will forever leave the nastiest taste in my mouth. 90% of you if at a flea market and you saw a fingerless for $200 you'd negotiate down to $150 and leave with a #@$% eating grin on your face and wouldn't be honest and say maam/sir this is actually worth $7500 let me give you $4000. TRUTH HURTS!
