    Default Just Whence You Think You Have Seen It All Before.....

    And, this is not an anomaly of "odd" things listed for sale, either, e.g. vintage, unused styrofoam containers for MacDonald's hamburgers. They sold, too!

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    And it looks like there is some active bidding on this item.
    Ebay has something for everybody.

    Actually, there is a large market for used well-worn ladies slippers on Ebay. It is a fetish thing and good money to be made for buy cheap granny slippers wearing them for a few weeks and then selling. I remember looking to see what other things the buyers had bought when you could look back at this. One German guy bought high end designer shirts YSL, Givenchy etc as wells a grubby well-worn ladies slippers

    Market for used panties is huge. They had, until recently, shops (and vending machines) selling used panties in Japan.

    ^^^ I am not sure. Perhaps that is the name of a colour?

    Perhaps hoarders are correct that you should never throw away anything? One person's trash is another person's treasure? It is just too funny, though.

    A friend decided to sell a dress she bought for a wedding but in the end, wore a different one. She made the mistake of actually taking photos of herself wearing the dress and putting up on Ebay. She got quite a few requests from men asking about the shoes she was wearing in the photo(it was a full length one). Yes, they were will to pay her for photos of her feet just wearing the shoes! LOL The shoes simple court style you see in loads of stores. She blocked them all and was totally creeped out.

    I remember when they brought that rule in and sellers started writing "cleaned, as per eBay rules". This, of course, became the code for "still dirty".

    You seem to know a lot about used underwear. I wonder why?

    Or maybe a lot about eBay!

    Stop focusing on the underwear. You can do it.

    Well, this one pair of pants ended up selling for an amazing $41.00 + $10.65 shipping! Un-bloody-believable!
