    I've tried to be very specific in the title - maybe someone will want "whatever" later in the year.

    I've been including in the "word" section of the ad:

    That I have cats
    Method of Payment accepted
    Shipping/Postage and delivery confirmation is in addition to cost of item

    I've been putting this info on a piece of paper on the scan of the item:

    Width
    Length available
    Cost per yard
    Cost per piece
    Washed or Unwashed
    And a tape measure for scale

    Is all this info "too much" ?

    Should something more be included?


    Which format is easier/preferable for you - as a potential buyer?

    The written info all on top (Measurement and price) - with just a picture of the item with a number on it "below"?

    Or the info on each item?

    I think your ads are very informative and give me all the info I'd need if I were "shopping". I know exactly what I'm looking for and the cost involved when I read your ads. The only thing I'd add is maybe a coin to show the scale of the print. Otherwise, thank you for enabling me to shop more-good ads=more sales!!

    I'd always like to see 100% cotton specified.
    And I always use Paypal.

    I'm glad you said that - because I had "assumed" that if it was offered here - and not said OTHERWISE - that a fabric was 100% cotton. It never occurred to me to include that.

    without looking at your ads, I like to see a piece of paper on the piece of fabric for sale with an item number size and price. I dont like seeing something I like then having to scroll back up to see how much it is.

    Yes I know no one here would sell fabric that wasn't 100% cotton without mentioning it, but its just me....I'm a worrier :oops:

    I like to see a ruler to gauge the size of the print. Also, some might be interested in the distance of repeats. Otherwise, you've got some pretty good info there!
