CONSIGNMENTS

. . . before we begin, PLEASE NOTE -

    We wish to let all our consignment customers know that we are in the early stages of migrating our entire consignments section over to eBay (www.eBay.com). Because of on-going technical problems with our website server this move to eBay is in the best interests of all concerned (company as well as customers). Additionally, I've been looking for a time to retire from actual uniform production and just work with consignments. So given the website server problems it looks like now's the time to start making the move on both accounts.

    Consignment operations (new listings, sales, updates, etc) will continue to appear on this website as usual UNTIL JULY 1st. Then, within a few days after that this website will be deactivated and all Stony Brook Company consignment operations will effectively be on eBay.

    Now just to mention it very early on, here's how to connect with our developing consignments page on eBay (just a few items up there now as we get started with the move).

1:   Go to www.ebay.com.

2:  In the upper right hand corner of the homepage, near the blue SEARCH bar, click "advanced". This will take you to the ADVANCED SEARCH PAGE.

3:  Scroll down to the bottom of that page and look for SELLERS. Click the small box for "Only show items from" and then in the long box (next to "include") type in " glass-toad ". That's our eBay user identification. Then hit the blue "Search" button at the bottom of the page. That will take you to our current listings.

You can contact us at any time by clicking on any of our eBay listings and in the upper right hand corner under "SELLER INFORMATION" just click the "contact seller" link.

    If you are not familiar with eBay it would be a good idea to jot down and save the above information for future reference.

    We do need to mention that the eBay format is much different than what the guys have been used to seeing on these pages. Most features (or notices) that were hallmarks on this website such as "due-in-soon", "last general updating", "next scheduled postings", "sale pending", "sold", etc will not be available nor will we be able to list items by respective categories. However, most importantly, eBay affords us the opportunity to get the sellers items on the internet without the constant worry if the site will be down when we log on in the morning! Plus we can still post lots of photos and detailed descriptive texts that have been a standard feature on this website.

    We will keep everyone informed along the way via updates posted here. Of course please e-mail me with any questions you may have. Oh yes, this e-mail address (chris@stonybrookcompany.com) is part of our website and will deactivate when the website does. If you use it in the meantime and encounter technical difficulties with it please contact us through eBay as per above OR through my personal e-mail address which is cams@twcny.rr.com.

    So that's the whole story folks and I personally apologize for any and all inconvenience.

Thanks!

Chris
