Hello John, cc List,

answer: it's an eBay thing which happened because you're in the US whereas the items are on the UK ebay.

If you take the eBay link or item number and paste it into the US eBay = eBay.com, only that item will show, and "view seller's other items" doesn't work. Open a new window or tab in your browser and type or paste http://www.ebay.co.uk . Enter the link or item number. You'll ascertain that now "view seller's other items" works without a hitch.
