We are off eBay for a while!
Postal strike pending!
Canada is facing a possible postal stoppage any day now. Negotiations with postal workers unions have gone on for 9 months with no resolution. The unions are now in a position to strike,
or Canada Post to lock out workers to force the issue. The last time this happened was in 2011 and the resulting postal stoppage lasted 12 days before "back to work order" was issued.
We have delayed our weekly eBay sales until the situation is resolved. We don't like the idea of our customers' purchases stuck in the mail for an indeterminant time,
with a higher risk of loss.
We will be back as soon as it's all over!
Debbie & Roy
More about our eBay auctions
Why do we auction our best covers? Over the years we have built up a long list of customers,
many of whom collect the same things. We think making the best covers available to the highest bidder
is the fairest way of deciding where they go.
"I don't like eBay, but I want some of your auction covers". We hear this from time to time. Usually, the not liking
eBay means not liking searching through masses of listings -- and we sympathize with that!.
With our auctions, you don't have to search. We present you with a neat list of
this week's covers that is pleasant to browse. If you see something you want to bid on, the link will take you straight
to the lot on eBay to place your bid-- it's no tougher than opening a Bid Sheet!
"I don't like dealing with eBay". When you are buying from us on eBay, you are not "dealing with eBay". That's just the place where
your bids are recorded. At the end of the auction (if you are the high bidder), you will be dealing directly with us. You will get the same
friendly emails notifying you of your win that you get from your Cover Box orders. We'll combine any other purchases for shipping and do whatever
else we can to make adding to your collection easy -- whether it's from our weekly auctions, or from our fixed price listings.
"I am not registered on eBay". That's easily fixed! Go to eBay registration.
Fill in the forms, and you will be registered! It only takes a few minutes. You will be able to bid immediately. Many of our customers started on eBay
just so they could buy from our weekly auctions. Many of them never bought from anybody else through eBay for 6 or 12 months, until
they got used to it and found a few other sellers they could trust too. Remember, when bidding on our lots, you are not dealing with eBay, you are
dealing with us, through eBay.
"Can I get reminders of your weekly auctions?". Absolutely! Go to our Mailing List Page
and subscribe for our "Weekly eBay auctions" mailing list. We'll send a weekly email with a brief commentary by Roy
about this week's highlights and a link to this page.
