Re: eBay versus "price gouging"

Amazing! Well, that's capitalism for you - working on the law of supply and demand!

And the term "price gouging" is another Americanism that we can do without quite frankly ... ebay just enhancing it without recourse as usual.

Best luck with sales! :D

Re: Coronavirus and fairs

Every time ELP recommends eBid I check it out with my two regular search terms, with very disappointing results: "Salisbury Plain" - collectables: eBid - 18 hits; eBay - 644 "military Wiltshire" - collectables: eBid - 6 hits; eBay 684. And all the eBid listings are of dross, nea...

Re: Copies of Postcards

It's a great thing that you do there Peter; certainly an asset for a collector to be able to see more and also get a better looking image, especially so with a damaged postcard as many are. Enhancements and improvements are one thing, but to copy images without permission and to sell these on is ano...

Re: used/unused

I am new to this hobby and greatly enjoying it. I would like to ask the 'experts' what the difference in value is between 'used' and 'un-posted'? Any guidance would be very welcome.
