Title: For Sale: Scribes
Post by: FigureSpins on September 15, 2010, 11:22:40 AM
Haven't had many scribes up for sale online lately.  Should run a daily ebay search to stoke the sellers, lol.

If you find them, post them here.

On eBay, this one looks nice:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170540725982&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123

Starting bid $10, but here's the catch: you have to arrange for pickup from Mentor, Ohio.
Saves on shipping costs, that's for sure. 

I think a good selling price for this would be around $25-30, but who knows? With the shipping cost eliminated, bidders might be willing to pay more or no one might bid because there are no interested locals.

Funny thing is, I know somebody who lives there, but she never gets up HERE.  Could be a problem.  :)

You could figure out how much shipping would cost separately.  Sometimes the ebay sellers charge more for shipping to cover their packaging costs, etc.

No bids.  It might be relisted soon, so keep an eye out.

If anyone sees another one, PLEASE let me know!

I have (and treesprite has too), plus there is a 20% off coupon you can use: RTFF20.  Shipping was a little steep for me at almost $16, but with the coupon the total was still well under what most seem to sell for on ebay.

Post by: ESk8s on September 25, 2013, 05:50:15 AM
I have a scribe that looks just like that purchased from Jerry's in the late 80's, and it's still holding up well. So is the obnoxious neon pink and green bag it came in (an awesome teenager decision I didn't think would haunt me 25 years later :P ). I wish they showed pictures of the current bag - perhaps the purple and black isn't so bad? I'd really love something a bit less "LOOK AT ME!!!"  :blush:

Did anyone get the bag?
Title: Re: For Sale: Scribes
Post by: sarahspins on September 25, 2013, 10:02:05 AM
Did anyone get the bag?

No - it was memories of those bags from the 90's that worried me enough not to get one!  My scribe lives in my locker at the rink but I decided if I really needed "soemthing" to carry it in I could either make something or use a yoga mat bag.

Post by: ESk8s on September 25, 2013, 08:18:53 PM
Sarah, too funny, they were pretty awful weren't they?  :P  I think I'll stick with carrying it out of the bag for now. . . though if a decent pic shows up, I might reconsider.

New one on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Figure-skating-scribe-vintage-/201428128917?

Comes with a carrying case.  Location is on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, so could make for a nice weekend trip to pick it up, then get in some ice time at the Lake Placid ice complex.

I had the double screw model.  It was so easy to make the scribing end perpendicular to the ice that way - self-leveling   88)

I know it has been a while since someone posted in here but I figured I would give it a go. I'm American but live in South Korea. One of my coaches, who isn't as confident in his English has asked me to assist him in tracking down a scribe. I believe I found one used on a site I have never heard of. Is there another source besides that people know of? I am hitting up eBay, Etsy and craigslists in places that I have friends or family.
