Hello can I send a photo

Hello, my name is Glenda
May I ask who I have the pleasure of speaking to?

Is it possible to upload photos of the item, including any and all marks/signatures? There is NO FEE for adding photos


1. Text option: You can send photos one at a time via return text. If you are getting texts from me, that’s your number—just REPLY (do not set up a new text). One photo per text and please make sure that there is at least one word typed in the text too so I can confirm it came in.

2. App/website option: There should be a +ADD FILES feature next to our Send button. If not, then there is a paperclip above the reply box that you click to attach photos. Or there is a document icon with a blue UP arrow. The photos won’t upload unless you also have at least one word in the text box! You won’t see the attached photo along with the text before you post it, but you will see the paperclip or attach button turn green.

3. If that doesn’t work, please reach out to Customer Service for help at no additional charge: 1(###) ###-####/p>

My name is***** can you please confirm that you have received my photos and will be replying to me today?

Hi Clare

Yes, I got them.

The Elephant Jug was made in Japan, 1950's imported to be sold in Department Stores, Hand Painted Porcelain.

The Jug is valued at 40.00-45.00 GBP

If you plan on selling. There are some great sites you can sell from.
Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally.
Etsy is a great site.
There is also craigslist locally which is free. Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay, I recommend setting reserves.
