I read a news story this morning and I’m stuck on it. At the heart of the matter:
A Waterbury antiques dealer has been barred from selling vintage
American flags on eBay because of restrictions he placed on who can buy
Mark Albino, owner of C&M Antiques and Collectibles in Waterbury, veteran, and dealer of vintage flags, will not sell a flag to anyone who might desecrate it. An honorable stand to make.
Albino is also a powerseller on eBay, and eBay will not allow such buyer discrimination. Their policy is you either sell internationally or you don’t – you don’t get to pick and choose which countries you will ship to.
Perhaps Albino needs to find a new venue to sell his vintage flags …
What are your feelings about this? It’s a sad situation when we have to worry about the buyer’s intent.
