There’s an amazing Ossie Clark snakeskin coat on eBay.
As you might recall, I have the jacket version.
Unfortunately, the coat is part of a “live auction.” I’ve never bid in one of those on eBay because of all the extra charges. In this case, the “buyer’s premium” is 22.5%! Plus, I don’t like this bullshit: “Most major credit card brands are accepted, however a 3% surcharge will be added to cover the charge made to us by our bank. There is a surcharge of 3.1% for American Express payments.” If you want to cover that charge, I say make your reserve price higher. But making a big production over it is tacky.
My opinion: Bid very carefully, and only if you’ve been CRAVING an Ossie snakeskin piece.
