Selling copyrighted items on eBay

Clementina van der Walt Tea Cups  February 19, 2013 – 10:01 am

The other day I was walking through a Goodwill in Hollywood when I saw these totally cute, obviously hand painted cups. I looked up the maker, Clementina van der Walt, and found that she was an award winning South African potter. So I bought them thinking I could sell them on the Etsy store I’ve been working on for the past couple of months (more on that later). Unfortunately, Etsy won’t let me list anything I didn’t make myself that was produced after 1994, and the saucers have “1997″ painted on the bottom of them in clear, bold script.

Not wanting to piss anybody off by listing non-vintage items in my brand new shop, I put the cups in an Ebay auction, which you can see here. My starting price is crazy low in order to attract bidders, and I’m feeling a lot of personal drama over that. Ebay was trying to suggest I start it at $0.99, and maybe I made a mistake not listing them for that, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. On the one hand, I feel like if I’m ever going to make money off this shit, I can’t be giving it away, on the other hand, it’s not like I’ve ever sold anything on Ebay before.

Your opinion you can keep - let's see some data

You know man, there's a lot of people who can think for themselves. If you really want to share this data and the data is factual, then post it, or link to it. What you've posted is a bit like an editorial. It's your take and I personally prefer to do the interpretation myself. I can tell you that the studio I moved in to in 1998 was priced at $725 then and it's being advertised at the low low p...explain this course of action though I can admire their committment to their chosen course of action regardless of it's financially unsound nature.
I must say the landlords aren't garnering a whole lot of goodwill these days. Hooray for Rent Control. Up with tenent rights and down with landlord tyranny. Speak your mind publicly or forever hold your piece (spelling intended).
