I saw this for $40.00, then $228.00 with a bid. With 17 hours left and bid retracted. With 7 hours left and she ends the listing. 30 minutes ago she posts on our facebook group asking for value. Values were under $200.00 which she obviously did not like. She told me she has a $500.00 offer but she refuses to ship. A friend said she told him it was a $600.00 offer.
5 minutes ago she listed it for $500.00. She is a very nice woman and I dont blame her for trying to get the most out of it.
It seems that people have filled her head with high values and now she is stuck thinking it is a real money maker...

Your facts are off a bit, but yes, she's a bit crazy the way she's doing things.

Picking nits:

The original auction showed a $22.80 bid (the auction starting amount), not $228. The proxy bid she cancelled (was not retracted, that has to be done by the bidder) was for $100. Was never at $40, there was only the one bid. She made no changes to the original listing that would have caused any different amount to display.

Her Facebook post was 17 hours ago, not 30 minutes before your post, unless she added a new post for it. https://www.facebook.com/groups/antique ... 745418509/

Her ebay listing started more than an hour before your post, not 5 minutes.

She may be related to the guy in my "nutty seller" thread. :lol:

That is definitely nit picking, lol...

Sure, It was 5 minutes after I last talked to her in PM and yes $22.80 was the start.

Either way I made an offer and she said no. :cry:
