Hope you get your money

As little as I can get away with, I am a skinflint like anyone else.

I usually pay around $40 tops

Default Warm welcome

Ha Brunno, such a warm welcome.
Am I the only one who thinks this sort of negative public feedback is discouraging to anyone else who considering posting an item for sale?

No Michael you are not alone. "Poor form" as the Brits would say.

I think that valuations from the gallery should be in the form of a PM to the original poster, or else let the market decide if the price is out of whack.

My apologies for adding my opinion.
I do plenty of vending and all too often customers are quick to tell me when they think my pricing is out of line, in public, with no regards to who hears it.
They don't take me aside and whisper in my ear...
I don't really see this as being any different.
I suppose being frank and honest on a public forum, which is incidently run for/by collectors who have good knowledge
is unacceptable.
Thats the trouble these days, too many people who beat around the bush too worried about being PC for fear of offending someone.

So,

I offer my apologies to the seller (Brunno) of the extinguisher, if what I said is "poor form" in the eyes of my peers but I will counter by saying as others have that I am giving my opinion.

Being blunt is a very British trait and we (those of us who are of British birth) are often get called rude when infact we are being economical and honest, if I wanted to be rude I could with ease but have no reason to.

I am sure the seller isn't going to be reaching for the Kleenex box and dialing the therapist because of what I said.

I stand by by my post and would do the same again.

Just want to reply as I am being singled out and want to close the loop on this.

Thanks very much

Robin

Gentlemen, I don't see that either of you have said anything particularly inflammatory or barbed. I have read & re read this thread, looking for what was so bad to have said. Haven't found it! I think I must share the same frank gene. No point in beating around the bush, but I do acknowledge that in situations where you don't get the luxury of using spoken word, things can sometimes be mistaken for being 'rude', when you really only wanted to get a point across with minimal typing to do so.

For the record, I have sent PMs to several people (ebay mostly), correcting stated information or advising of other issues which have been inaccurate, only to see that nothing was changed as a result of the enlightenment. Guess it depends on the motivation. And no, my comments do not relate in any way to the author of this thread, who I do not know, and have no reason to doubt his motives. I'm tempted to buy the item in question, just to take the curse of this thread. Postage would be a killer though. Pity, I like the extinguisher, and wouldn't mind giving it a new home in Australia.

Hi Brunno, and welcome.
Chris there was nothing wrong with your first post. It was quite neutral.
Just my opinion.
When we are trying to sell stuff at a swap meet or what ever event, and someone offers an opinion about a price, and the do it in a tactless way, it might send one or two potential buyers off into the sunset, but a negative post on this close knit forum, to all intents and purposes, has effectively closed down the possibility of the sale.
To be fair to each other, I would think that if the listing seems reasonable (ie not misleading) then if the price is too high (personal veiw) then probably we should not comment other than (as has already been suggested) by pm.
Just another (fair minded??) opinion.
Not wishing to offend anyone.

Tony, I too have responded to vendors by PM whther it be eBay, MLU or other places to "correct" them on misleading or incorrect info as well.
Sometimes I have been ignored, other times thanked but many times told to piss off and mind my business.

I have already sold the extinguisher. When i wrote the price, i checked an old one who was sold for a price higher than mine, few months ago.

So, i don't want give my stuff and i know that people always negociate the price. If i had wrote 40$ dollars, i am sure that someone would buy the item for 15$.

You don't like price !! Offer are welcome !! Better than write bad comment on a post.

Link above shows the same thing without the bracket for the same price, so the original asking was not out of line. And since you can lower your price once listing an item as opposed to raising it during the negotiation phase, you are right Brunno....someone would want it for less than the price of postage.

Bruno, you nailed it.
I do not believe I would be out of line writing for everyone in this thread in sending you anything but good wishes. I have met both Chris and Robin personally a number of times over the past few years. My own experience is they are salt of the earth folks who would give you the shirt off their back to help you with a project, or any other need for that matter.
.... In spite of their parsimonious evaluation of your cold weather Ansul, which they were able to articulate themselves.

Brunno: Don't feel bad if you do not understand some of Micheal's larger $5 words. English is my first language and I had to look up parsimonious. His command of the English language also caused me to look up "busman's holiday" a couple days ago.

Good show, Brunno!

I had a good look at your stuff listed for sale on ebay, and I just say I thought the prices were all very reasonable indeed. Another point on prices. Guess we need to remember that what is readily available & inexpensive on one continent, can sometimes be very rare and much sought after on another. If I had seen that very unusual extinguisher at a local swap meet, for the asking price, I would have had my hand in the pocket real quick. Never seen one here! Price is relative to location, eh!

Glad you had a good result.

Agreed.

Along with this hobby, I also collect wrist watches, records and vintage razors among other things. All of those respective special interest forums discourage public price shaming, to the extent that some even disable replying to For Sale adds. Although i've likely done it myself at some point along the way, I certainly wouldn't in the future unless I spotted a full on scam.

If someone has enough technology and wherewithal to navigate to this website, they should have the ability to comparison shop on google prior to plunking down cash.

I once saw a wooden Chev CMP steering wheel on ebay for $400.
Having sold my CMP for a --VERY-- reasonable price, Im not up on current CMP pricing butI thought that was over the top. and perhaps discouraging for someone thinking about getting in to the hobby.
I wonder what it did go for eventually.

I kinda agree with Chris.. a seller can ask whatever price he wants, its up to the buyer to decide..although gentle suggestions on this forum as to more common price ranges are not a bad idea.. and have been made on this forum on several occasions in the past.
