    Also, I just bought an vintage A-2 flight jacket off Ebay and the first thing I noticed about it was it smells like an elderly man I've never met before. I febreezed it, but I can't shake it loose. It is hardcore marinated in spicy septuagenarian.

    I still love it, but I wish the seller would have mentioned it came with 'Genuine Old Man Smell'.

    Not a huge fan of eBay selling. Buying can be rather exciting. I highly recommend this little gem of an ass kicking, name taking eBay bidding side-kick of a web application...

    I haven't had very many issues with E-bay on buying or selling, though there have been a couple. Has it maybe just gone down the shitter recently? Or maybe it's always been bad for those more mainstream items? I'm always buying and selling vintage computer equipment, industrial electronic stuff, odd things from exotic places, etc.

    Try limiting jurisdictions (i.e. United States and Canada only) requiring quick or instant payments and set up a Paypal account and only accept Paypal payments (also get a debit card from paypal so you can access the cash as soon as you get it).

    I have had minimal problems with ebay accept some sellers charge too much for shipping and eBay charges a rather steep sellers percentage commission (they must be making buckets of dough as the middle man).

    Although I have not personally used it I hear this site is a good alternative. shopgoodwill.com - Welcome
