Hi Richelle, I created the title "aunthazelsattic" because I thought that I would be selling treasures like would be found in an old attic. Grandmasattic was not available, my wife's name is Hazel so we decided on aunthazelsattic to keep the title sounding like and old attic. So much for that! It was fun anyhow. I will be creating another name even though I will give up my 20 feedback score.

Interesting to hear the name broken down like that, I must admit that I was pronouncing it as aunthor-zelasttic, if you know what I mean. Perhaps you could look at adding a hyphen to the name aunt-hazels-attic, would help idiots like myself get a better grip on it.

Seems to be quite a common theme with eBay names now, 27 words all strung together. I know it's quite difficult to find a decent eBay id that is still available, but the name can often get lost in translation when multiple words are used.

It actually highlights a very important marketing tip, never assume the customer knows just because you do, always look at everything through the eye's of a customer.

Btw, changing your eBay id doesn't effect your feedback score. You only start again if you open a new account, so you'll maintain your 20 points.

Hi Lee,

I was in exactly the same spot as fudjj. I didn't see your name as "aunt-hazels-attic" and I couldn't make out what it was on my own. Sorry for being naive :)

But I do agree with fudjj when he said that

- Had you not pointed it out, your title/eBay ID/name would remain a distinct blurb to me. At least now I know what it means and it does reflect your products.

Cheers!
