Ebay has really gone down in the last few years. They primarily want stores with hundreds of listings, far less of what it used to be as the garage sale of the world. Also though, looking at what you have listed, your prices are starting the auction as what I can walk into the store and buy things, many people are hesitant to pay full price when they could go to the store and get it there.
Really? I did some research and starting-priced my stuff a few dollars less than anything I found, such as the Tandy catalogs and anyone else on eBay. Maybe the shipping ruins the price? If nothing sells, I guess I'll try 'em all at decreased prices yet again. Like I said, fortunately they did away with the listing fees. But they still take 9% of every sale, including the shipping!!!

Try adding in the shipping costs to the start price of the auction and offer free shipping. Sounds silly, but it's one of the first strategies everyone talks about when discussing this stuff.

I looked at just two items, both had the starting price of your auction exactly the same as the elite price. A lot of people that are Tandy shoppers pay elite. There are a few of the reqular Tandy resellers that simply walk into Tandy and get best price, then resell online. I don't know how much they make, but usually the people they sell to simply do not check for the sales.

Why use them at all when you can sell them here? There have been a few people looking for the A.S. Leather Case books recently.

Either way good luck!
