The eBay and Pay Pal fees are not calculated on the $100 or just about $14 on the total. So the $15 I would collect would now come down to $1 on this sale. Good informative jewelry lens.

Aunt Jean or Uncle Stu may be your best little marketing associates! If a Costco employee came to me and was as rude as the one reader had posted about a palm tree she took a photo of, then I would demand to see the manager of the store and file a complaint. Many employees simply don’t understand their own company policies and will interpret them incorrectly. I believe that was the case that this reader experienced.

There are ways to test each one of these materials to determine what it is.
