  John, the exact same thing happened to me.  I'm guessing it's because t he seller listed his items as only available for shipping to England.

I have another question about this auction, and others like it. Since the links in this email were broken by wordwrap and wouldn't work for me, I copied and pasted the item numbers into my browser's eBay search window. I thought that just finding one item would be sufficient and I could click "View seller's other items", but that yielded zero, so I had to copy and paste all the item numbers individually. Why would that be? I've seen this before, but not often. Is this an eBay glitch, or something done by the seller so nobody can find what else they have for sale?

As for off-topic items, I don't mind that sellers include them along with vintage stuff, so long as there _is_ vintage stuff there as well. But Dale is absolutely right in requiring a clue as to what's for sale because with the high volume of this list, searching for each item and drawing a blank each time is a big waste of time.

Just the most cursory information would save us loads of time, or, send us scurrying to bid, depending upon what you are auctioning.
