I found these bad boys on Memorial Day at salvation army. At first I did not see the gb gba games I could not believe my eyes when I saw them could not believe my ears when the employee told me how much she would sell them to me for.
$1 each for the wii & gamecube games $0.50 cents a pop for the gb gba games sadly the pokemon games need new batteries.:(

I would if it was a normal seller, but seeing that it's Good Will, I don't want to screw them over. The shipping fees alone are about $15 each way so they'd be losing out on $30. Plus I opened the box so it's not new in (destroyed) box anymore.
I always thought of Goodwill as a place where people would donate stuff and Goodwill would then sell it at a cheap price and use the money they make to donate to charities. Over the past few years I've seen crazy prices at goodwills and also the rise of them putting stuff on on ebay or shopgoodwill to sell to the highest bidder. They have lost all "goodwill" from me at this point since their model is no longer favorable toward their shoppers. From now on I donate only to my local thrift store rather than goodwill. Already great prices are also negotiable and 100% all the extra money taken in (other than rent and electricity) goes to local charities. Everyone is a volunteer including the owner. I'm happy to support that charity.
I'd have no problem holding Goodwill to the same standard as any other ebay seller since they make far more money selling on ebay that they would in their stores. That's just me though, and the few things I bought from then on ebay have actually come in excellent condition so I really don't have any complaints.

I have another scammer at the moment. Person with a total of 7 feedback (2 from the last year about 9 months ago) buys game, gets it, and now says the wrong game was in there. Was supposed to be Halo MCC and they say i was an old Black Ops discs all broken.
Game was factory sealed. I got it was Microsoft Store like 4 months ago, but had never opened it and since I didn't bother with the Halo 5 beta decided to just sell it.
This user sounds like a young kid.It is the wrong disk and damaged. It is a Call of Duty disk for the Xbox 360. I want this refunded fully and this seller to be punished for lying
I wrote back saying it was factory sealed and that I was insulted for saying I was lying, I've received 100's of feedback the last year without and problems, etc.
"I apologize for saying you were lying just want money back and I will not leave feedeback at all"
""I will return the disc to you via USPS certified mail Monday. If you see fit to refund my money (without Ebay getting involved) I will make sure to give a positive review of your services. Once again I apologize for my initial email message as I have never had that happen before in any of my purchase on Ebay. Please accept my apology"
This screams scammer. Do I have any chance of winning this dispute or eBay just deciding to do one of those on time both keep the money? or am I pretty much screwed anyways and should just refund to get it over with?
You need to stop engaging buyer's like this. You don't need to defend yourself or go on the offensive. In a situation like this where the buyer is claiming something ridiculous versus something possible (i.e. game arrived damage, wouldn't play in his console, etc.) I would always counter by stating:
I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your order. My records show that you were sent a factory sealed copy of Halo: MCC for Xbox One. The order details state that this product was delivered to you on (insert date).
If you are claiming that you received a different product, that also happened to be used and damaged, then the only reasonable explanation is that the package and its contents were tampered with after being handed over to the USPS (assuming that's who you shipped with). Before I can provide you with assistance I will need to file a mail fraud claim with the USPS Postal Inspector as tampering with mail is a felony and very serious offense. After I file the report it is possible that you may receive a follow up questionnaire from someone at your local post office; do not be alarmed, this is standard procedure and it helps the USPS figure out where the fraud may have occurred.
Once I hear back from the Postal Inspector I will let you know. Please hold onto the packaging and its contents as you will need to return them to me before I can process a refund. This is eBay and PayPal policy.
Look if the buyer is a scammer and they open a dispute via eBay (have they already opened one?) you are going to be forced to issue a refund. It's that simple. You need to make them understand they are going to be required to mail "something" back and you're not going to just bend and issue a refund without them doing that first. If you get stubborn then eBay will just give them a refund from your pocket without requiring they send something back to you.
Most of the time a buyer will disappear when they realize they have to go through the hassle of sending an item back because that takes work. They will also either disappear or get angry when they realize you're opening a mail fraud complaint with the postal inspector (this is a real thing and can be done online) because that puts them on the radar of USPS.
Did you send this via first class? If you sent it by priority mail it has at least $50 of insurance built in ($100 if you're a top-rated seller) so you could open an actual insurance claim with USPS if you went that route.
Another trick I try and do is talk to the other eBay sellers the buyer has done business with. You can typically find this out by looking at who has left them feedback as most bigger sellers, even individuals leave feedback at either the time they recieve payment or when they create a label.

I had an interesting find at an out of the way GW (one that always disappoints when I go). I had to go to the Kmart across the street to pick up some cheap games, so I dropped by to see what I could find. Sure enough, all of there DVD's and games were special prices. Some were the regular $3, some were $6 or more(!!) for no apparent reason.
Anyways, I was getting ready to leave, but I went down the craptronics aisle one last time and spotted this:
After looking it up, I didn't hesitate to buy it. I still need to test it, but if it works....

What is it with you and the insulators? Do you just like the look of them?
I started noticing these in shops and on people's property. They are a cheap glass collectable and I do like the look of them. They are a cool piece of Americana you can get cheap. They don't have much value that I am aware of. I only have 2, purchased at $3 or cheaper. My price point seems to be $4 on these. The going price in shops is $8 to ?. I have them on a sweet chess board my Uncle made. I cleared the family pictures off the board that doubles as a tabletop. If I find more I would like to set them up as giant pawns on the board. Bad lighting in the pic but the board my Uncle made is awesome.
My grandparents have land right next to a set of railroad tracks and I find a ton of them just sitting down by the tracks. Most are in pretty good shape. I've taken a couple over the years, they also double as decent bookends.
I was thinking the same thing on the bookends.
Added bonus pic of the marble dish that sits on the board. These are the Marbles my daughter deems cool and different for display. We have them in a glass candy dish. I have marbles in a few glass containers around the house.
