To Not Know How to List this fecking Awful Sofa...

(158 Posts)

..On The Ebay.

Right, dp has a friend, they used to live together, friend is lovely, but my God he has the worst taste ever. I'm talking he is into stuff from before Changing Rooms came along, stuck in 1991. Bless him.

Anyway, he knows I sell all my old tat via Facebook and EBay, not for lots of cash, but have had a few "touches" as he refers to them and got more than I bargained for. So, he needs to sell his old sofa and has asked me to sell it for him on EBay.

I don't mind doing that at all. Except he has no idea that
a) salmon pink leather sofas with wooden bits are not the height of fashion
b) most sofas go for pennies now
c) it fecking minging

This sofa is so out dated, Barbara Cartland would have said no despite the sheer pinkness of it.

He spent 5 grand on it, and thinks he will get at least £500 for it. He'll be lucky to get £50.

What shall I do? I have said I will list it, but I don't know how to tell him if it doesn't sell why it didn't. I cannot just say "mates, its bloody awful" can I?

GrumpyCynicalBastard Wed 28-Nov-12 18:24:53

How about you search completed listings on ebay for same or similar stuff and let him look at that? I know sofas fetch bugger all - even really good stuff goes for a bargain price. He'll end up Freecycling it - but don't tell him that yet!

McChristmasPants2012 Wed 28-Nov-12 18:27:55

Retro pink sofa made from solid wood, very comfortable and spacious.

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Wed 28-Nov-12 18:29:47

Be honest, and ridicule the sofa.

TheAccidentalExhibitionist Wed 28-Nov-12 18:31:12

Picture of sofa please!

curiousuze Wed 28-Nov-12 18:31:34

Oh I love an ugly sofa on ebay - get it on there! You never know who might have the same 'taste' as him. I've seen one on there for £500 - and the owner's dog had eaten most of it smile

Then you can try gumtree, and then he can freecycle it!

griphook Wed 28-Nov-12 18:35:08

Well, can't really comment until we see a pic grin

SingingSands Wed 28-Nov-12 18:37:47

Well it can't be as bad as the freecycle listing I spotted a month ago which read "funky red sofa, well used, sags a bit and smells of dog". Oh yeah, bet folk were queuing up for that one!

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Wed 28-Nov-12 18:43:35

Retro Continental chic for groovy feckers grin

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Wed 28-Nov-12 18:47:26

Highlight how Pink it is, how Barbara Cartland it is, etc.

Start it on 99p, saying you need to get rid of this lovely old sofa and just want it to have a good home so you are starting it at such a low price, hoping it will find a loving home.

That way lots of people might watch, share, etc. Tweet about it!

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Wed 28-Nov-12 18:48:11

BUT, and this is important. Say it is old and ugly and in really bad state, as then the buyers cant complain if it is ugly and horrid.

MmeLinDude Wed 28-Nov-12 18:49:24

Make the listing so funny that it goes viral and he gets loads of great offers

OK, so I got dp to do it- he saw me snarking about it on here over my shoulder. He phoned his mate up and asked about listing price hence the start price listed.

Truly awful.

I am not brave enough to list it truthfully as minging. He is popping over to see the write up tomorrow! He is a really good friend too (of twenty years standing to dp), the sofa just doesn't fit in his tiny flat now, he used to have it in his and his exs house, so it didn't stand out quite so much before. He is now moving again to a slightly bigger flat which is furnished, so he will make use of the cash on the new place.

I feel mean!

OMFG It has a bloody watcher! My God I am shock

WandaDoff Thu 29-Nov-12 11:06:28

Is it 'Stylish, comfy suite, with matching cushions'? OP?

Yep. Its bloody awful, dp did the write up cos I was laughing too much

Pascha Thu 29-Nov-12 11:13:54

Of course the number of views is going to be misleading now because we're all looking and laughing?

WandaDoff Thu 29-Nov-12 11:14:31

Is that a cigar or a joint with coloured papers in the ashtray?

WandaDoff Thu 29-Nov-12 11:19:39

Also loving the trainers (pic 1), the bin with beer cans (pic 2), & the way he's casually thrown a fleece jacket over the back & pushed it right up to the cooker to take photos (pic 5).

oldnewmummy Thu 29-Nov-12 11:20:42

I'd have hated that in 1991, too.

Aren't they coordinating cushions rather than matching (runs away quickly)........

Bogeyface Thu 29-Nov-12 11:26:08

He is never going to get £500 for that, I doubt he will get any bids at all with a starting price of £100! To be honest, I would be very surprised if he got any with a start price of 99p!

tutu100 Thu 29-Nov-12 11:30:46

If it cost 5 grand 20 years ago surely he's had his moneis worth from it and can just ditch it. I think I would have had to have set up a new ebay account to list that as I wouldn't want people thinking it was my taste!

5alive4life Thu 29-Nov-12 11:35:07

Ebay link?

That's surely just a roll up in licorice rizlas wanda. I have to say, that really is a special type of ugly...

oohlaalaa Thu 29-Nov-12 11:39:17

If it's a 5k sofa from 1991, it must be very well made. Perhaps someone could get it reupholstered?

RooneyMara Thu 29-Nov-12 11:39:30

You have to tell him that people don't generally go for sofas on ebay unless they are 1. very trendy (duresta, tetrad etc) or 2. very small (thinking dolls house) as it will cost a bloody fortune to transport it.

Make that the excuse when it sells for pennies.

Meanwhile can we see it please grin

cheekybaubles Thu 29-Nov-12 11:39:47

EBay link required

link!!!

oohlaalaa Thu 29-Nov-12 11:45:49

I have a confession to make, I just typed in salmon pink leather sofa used on ebay. I think I found it, and am now watching too. Yes, it really is ugly. I'm just curious to see what it goes for.

oohlaalaa Thu 29-Nov-12 11:46:13

P.S. It looks comfy though!

Caerlaverock Thu 29-Nov-12 11:46:18

It looks like it is made out of intestines

the 'matching' cushions don't match though!

it's awful.

I just had a look too. Gosh, it's umm we'll its pink and the wooden bits look strong.

probably smells of cigarette smoke, feed and cooking judging by the photos though sorry!

feet not feed hmm

eBay roulette anyone? I'll start the bidding...

Tiredmumno1 Thu 29-Nov-12 11:52:32

Blimey that is truly disgusting grin

I can't see anyone bidding that much for it, poor bloke, what will he do if it doesn't sell?

Lonecatwithkitten Thu 29-Nov-12 11:52:57

Just a note of caution if it is that old does it have the labels confirming that the foam is fire retardant still attached to it. If it does not walk away very fast as it is illegal to sell a sofa without these unless it is a genuine antique with horsehair stuffing.

Caerlaverock Thu 29-Nov-12 11:54:12

I wouldn't want to sit on something so anatomically correct

Link please? I can't find it!

Caerlaverock Thu 29-Nov-12 11:59:07

Just search for pink leather sofa, thankfully there aren't that many

toofattorun Thu 29-Nov-12 12:00:10

That is FUCKING UGLY!!!!

Although I am quite tempted to start the bidding!!

Found it! Its fucking hideous! The colours clash awfully!

PimpMyHippo Thu 29-Nov-12 12:03:59

It does look comfy... <charitable>

Link here

I have been reliably informed its very safe, its actually 8 years old.
Definitely a cigar cough in the ashtray. I don't go to the place he's at now, he comes to my (nice, modern and with a lovely sofa) house instead. Its tiny his current place, the living room and kitchen are one room, then there is another tiny room with a bed and a bathroom. Its the smallest place I've ever seen.

It is bloody awful though, loving the vagina and intestinal references.

The cushions came with it apparently. I would personally tip the thing, but I think he is hoping he'll get some money for it. He wouldn't let us list it for less than £100.

Hopefully, if it doesn't sell he'll admit defeat.

PrincessSymbian Thu 29-Nov-12 12:09:46

Link please!?

bellarose2011 Thu 29-Nov-12 12:10:46

like how you added it would look great with throws!! covering every inch of it!
to be fair you can see that its good qaulity, it could be to someones taste.

cheekybaubles Thu 29-Nov-12 12:15:39

Wow, did anyone cop an eyefull of the pink diamante encrusted chesterfield? Makes the ops entry look classy smile

I think the problem is that if it was brown or black, or even cream, it would probably have sold. But its bloody pink! The other problem is the price he wanted us to list it at, if he'd got us to list it for a lot cheaper price, perhaps the Buy to Let, Student lets lot would have had it as then the students could have wrecked it and they'd not have cared.

It is very well made, but its pink! And thats the big problem. Its bloody comfy though apparently.

camrywagon Thu 29-Nov-12 12:19:07

Good lord. My eyes!

bondigidum Thu 29-Nov-12 12:21:01

That is pretty sexy.

cheekybaubles Thu 29-Nov-12 12:25:14

A physiotherapist could use it in treatment of phobias (aversion?) Spider one side of room, sofa the other smile

cheekybaubles Thu 29-Nov-12 12:26:10

That was supposed to say psychotherapist buty phone hates me

It looks like a prolapsed vagina.

lovelyladuree Thu 29-Nov-12 12:29:22

It is illegal to sell soft furnishings which do not have a fire certificate attached to them. If you list it, ebay will just take it down again, and your 'policy compliance' will be affected. There is a reason why you see so many dumped sofas................

Doyouthinktheysaurus Thu 29-Nov-12 12:32:09

My god, that truly is awful!

I'm not known for my classy taste and thought, oh it can't be that bad but it is...it really isgrin

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Thu 29-Nov-12 12:32:13

It is not really salmon pink though, it is more dusty pink?

ChippingInLovesAutumn Thu 29-Nov-12 12:33:28

Oh I haven't laughed that much in a while... OMG it is so much worse than I was envisaging. It's like someone's intestine coming out to swallow you up - I'm not even sure I could bring myself to sit on it!!

Robinredboobs Thu 29-Nov-12 12:34:05

You need to add a note saying " will stink of liquorice roll-ups" or w/e he's been smoking over it for 20 years. Eww.

Fuck me, that's vile. "Prolapsed vagina" is about right, and only a colourblind man could think the cushions matched.

I am never eBaying anything for anyone else ever again. Too much bloody grief.

Also, "antique style"...? grin

lovely its fine, it meets the guidelines, dp checked- its 8 years old. Its just his taste that is stuck in '91.

I think the flash makes it look less salmon than it is. I think dp may pop over with our camera and take better pics of it.

cheekybaubles Thu 29-Nov-12 12:40:11

I have spent my whole life thinking the word was 'dusky' pink until now. What a tit

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Thu 29-Nov-12 12:41:53

See Cheeky, it takes a blardy forriner to teach you the names of coulours, innit. wink

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Thu 29-Nov-12 12:42:13

One who cant even spell colour properly. hmm

ErikNorseman Thu 29-Nov-12 12:42:23

That is unbelievably fugly.

thecatsminion Thu 29-Nov-12 12:46:16

It looks a bit sinister, I think. Like if you dumped it, it would mug someone for the bus fare back and track you down, and sit outside your garden and stare at you when you put the washing out.

thecat I am pissing myself now. Best.Description.Ever.

A sinister sofa. It is currently residing in Slough though, so perhaps if it got the chance it may just don a tracksuit and mug you?

BupcakesAndCunting Thu 29-Nov-12 12:50:20

LOL at thecatsminion grin

That is spectacularly bad. I would get those 90s "aztec" cushions off for a start. They do not match and they look like something from the dog's basket. sad

Was the pictures taken on the set of Bottom?

shewhowines Thu 29-Nov-12 12:53:19

Mmm I need sofa's - I' be interested if there were two of them not

I think we should all club in, buy it and donate it to MNHQ! !

That would be too mean!

Perhaps we could send it to the other lot?

MyLastDuchess Thu 29-Nov-12 13:05:48

Hahaha! I was thinking it really couldn't be that bad ... Until I saw the pictures!

Scary sofa!

KD0706 Thu 29-Nov-12 13:14:50

Oh my word that's funny.

I think you should let mumsnet draft an amended description.

Loving thecat story about it tracking you down!!

Fellowship- it's not got enough glitter sadly...

I love thecat's description!

Fakebook Thu 29-Nov-12 13:31:29

Was the person who "matched" the cushions colour blind? confused

RubberNeckerNicker Thu 29-Nov-12 13:40:52

TBH I've met better looking hemmorhoids!

Pandemoniaa Thu 29-Nov-12 13:47:24

Very heavy, solid suite which will look great as it is or with throws.

Lawks! Someone certainly saw him coming when they got £5,000 for it.

I might have amended this to read "the terrifying pinkness has undoubtedly made your eyes bleed but actually, if you entirely encased it in a throw, it would look much less like something sent to analysis during a post-mortem."

OhFentonDUDE Thu 29-Nov-12 13:49:47

That is UGLY, dude.

sad

Softlysoftly Thu 29-Nov-12 13:52:39

Mistletoe please let's do that! Imagine how pleased MNHQ would be with a new sofa for Christmas and the distraction might make Olivia miss some of our bad behaviour

wonderingsoul Thu 29-Nov-12 13:53:53

i dont think its THHHAAATTT bad actually.

not something i would buy but its cute in its own way and i can see some one paying for it. it is in good nick as well.

SuePurblyFeltYourPresents Thu 29-Nov-12 13:57:05

How about if you claimed it was actually made from the scrotum of someone famous? It's that particular shade of pink that no skin actually is, but that dolls/plasters etc are often made in. In fact, there's an angle: 'recycled from the latex skin of over 400 Love Dolls'

Mandy2003 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:04:05

I'm glad to hear you will be re-photographing it! Perhaps pose/style it a bit too - in photo 5 for instance I'm sure you can move the seat/back cushions a bit to make it look less scrotal...

Please dump the scatter cushions - I can almost smell them from here, a roll-uppy fug is emanating from them, and there's no way they match!!

ShatnersBassoon Thu 29-Nov-12 14:05:55

It's 8 years old?! What sort of shop was selling things that looked like that in 2004? It looks like it's been chewed up and spat out. I don't believe he paid that much for it. It's one of his Nan's castoffs.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Thu 29-Nov-12 14:11:44

ChippingInLovesAutumn Thu 29-Nov-12 14:25:39

KittyFane1 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:39:38

It's not very nice is it?
I feel sorry for him having his sofa laughed at on here sad
I bet it sells though
.

mirpuppet Thu 29-Nov-12 14:39:54

sorry you have another watcher -- I just want to see what it goes for.

KittyFane1 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:45:43

There's a nasty looking black leather chair behind that guitar too OP.
Your friend sure likes his leather!

Oi kitty that's my computer chair! I'm only selling the sofa for him

tiggy114 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:54:08

I have a sleeping toddler on my chest and my ribs ache from holding in the laughter at this thread. I would amend to say it is very sturdy and well made with years of life left. Reluctant sale. Thats the best you could do lol. I need a sofa but not that one. Sorry sad

KittyFane1 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:54:28

NOOOOOOO!! SORRY!! blush grin blush [hides]

KittyFane1 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:55:30

aPirateInaPearTree Thu 29-Nov-12 16:04:00

ah hahahahahahahaha. minging. brill!!

No it isn't I promise Dinosaurs. I have a nice modern square brown leather sofa in my house (phew).

I may have to nick that description shriekingharpy

dp is pissing himself laughing at these. Apparently, if we all think the decor he has now is bad, you should've seen it when they shared a house- to this day, he still has them apparently, but how's this for tacky- leopard print throws on the wall! Dp used to despair at some of the items he had then too.

As I say, he is an utter sweetheart, but has no taste whatsoever.

tiggy114 Thu 29-Nov-12 16:29:11

retro! They wat £200 for this lvely thing, so you may be in with a chance yet!!!!

If that was in Ireland (which is where I live) I'd buy it for the sheer novelty value. I think my DH would find it comforting wink

diddl Thu 29-Nov-12 17:05:20

I´d love a pink leather sofa-but even I don´t like it!

I hate the wooden bits & it actually looks broken/saggy to me-the gaps between the back & seat where grey shows through?

ChippingInLovesAutumn Thu 29-Nov-12 17:10:57

FOFF - why is your computer chair at his house?? hmm

It's really your lounge suite isn't it grin

ChippingInLovesAutumn Thu 29-Nov-12 17:12:13

PessaryPam - however many people are on and are lurking on this thread plus none I'd say grin

You know how Lisa Rinna's lips were before she had reduction surgery? That's what this sofa looks like.

No, its not, the pics of his suite were taken on a different camera, he brought that over and uploaded them to my pc. My chair isn't at his house, it wouldn't fit!
I thought if I was putting the sofa on, I may as well get rid of a couple of pairs of jeans and one of dps guitars (he has 4, this one he's barely played).
That would not get through my door.

ChippingInLovesAutumn Thu 29-Nov-12 17:57:59

grin

Does he now understand he'll be lucky to sell it at all, let alone get £500 for it? Poor bloke.

Oblomov Thu 29-Nov-12 18:07:44

Ha ha. This is Fab.
cheekybaubles, I too thought it was dusky pink blush

He won't get £100 , surely?
But it can be relisted. Haven't you told him that suites go for nothing on e-bay ( let alone his VILE cigarette "Prolapsed vagina") - ha ha , brilliant grin

Op you HAVE to tell him that he is way off the mark with his pricing.

BoulevardOfBrokenSleep Thu 29-Nov-12 18:09:27

I am actually colourblind. And even I can tell you those are not matching cushions.

I'm pretty sure my ex-boyfriend's mum had that sofa, back in...ooh... '91 maybe? It just screams arse-end of the 80's, dontcha think? But you say 2004?! shockconfused

No, definitely 2004, it has the safety tag whatnots on it too. We rang and double checked.

I think he kind of gets the idea now that he is so not getting that amount for it. Hopefully he does anyway!

Although, I have had an Indian gentleman ask about whether it will definitely be able to be delivered so perhaps there is a market for it- shocking as that is!

KittyFane1 Thu 29-Nov-12 18:36:07

It will sell I tell you! Your friend will share his taste with plenty of others. DFS used to be full of sofas like his!

But. It is awful. Well done you for offering to sell it. grin

LadyIsabellaWrotham Thu 29-Nov-12 18:50:51

The explanation that you're looking for is
"there's so many sofas on Freecycle nowadays that people on a tight budget tend to look there, and the bottom has fallen out of the second hand market"

It's exerting a sort of magnetic appeal. I'm sure there used to be a blob monster in the Hell levels of Diablo II based on that sofa.

Mandy2003 Thu 29-Nov-12 19:34:43

Damn you eBay! The accursed item comes up on the front page whenever I sign in to eBay now shock - it will start suggesting similar ones soon I expect.

Lovecat Thu 29-Nov-12 21:35:34

"People who looked at this item also looked at:" the mind boggles!

grin

In all fairness, a friend of mine had a sofa like that 10 years ago only in what was called dusty jade (hideous paleish green) and although it was foul to look at it was incredibly comfortable to sprawl on. Still wouldn't give it houseroom, though.

tiggy114 Thu 29-Nov-12 22:42:21

Lovecat my mum had the pale green version! Like washed out herb green. God i forgot all about it. And the cat used to scratch the arms so she had pea green arm covers draped over each end! Urghh.

oh that colour confused looks comfy though!

this thread has made me giggle... especially kitty's comment grin

have also added to watch list. im hoping it sells now

MmeLindor Thu 29-Nov-12 23:48:46

It's dusky pink. The colour. Not dusty.

That is one ugly sofa. Ours I similar but thankfully beige.

Monty27 Thu 29-Nov-12 23:55:14

Gets bleach for eyes.

Who would have thought a sofa could be so ugly shock

PrincessSymbian Thu 29-Nov-12 23:59:08

I second MmeLindor, it us dusky pink, as in the sort of pink you get during a sunset i.e dusk!

Oblomov Fri 30-Nov-12 06:31:14

Best we have estimates for how much it IS actually going to sell for.
Like some have said, it appears there is a market for this monstrosity.

I have revised my previous thoughts and think it will go for £125

Anyone think it will go higher?

Oblomov Fri 30-Nov-12 06:33:18

Are the 967 people who have viewed it , all MN'ers? wink

TheAccidentalExhibitionist Fri 30-Nov-12 07:23:33

Can we ask questions on the listing??!
<naughty face emoticon>

pigletmania Fri 30-Nov-12 07:25:38

It's not bad but I would not pay £500. In cream it would be quite nice. Me clutching at straws here

pigletmania Fri 30-Nov-12 07:27:12

Twiggy that's grim, op friends sofa knocks the spots off that

It has 55 watchers! dp is in hysterics.

I really hope its not just you lot watching/viewing it, although we haven't said to the sofa's owner how many hits its had.

I prefer sofas you can take the covers off and replace, you can dye them then

KaraThrace123 Fri 30-Nov-12 08:34:08

Hey OP - I agree it's pretty yuk, but, somebody may like it! There are a few things you could do (in my opinion - feel free to ignore) to increase it's chances of selling...

- Add a few more key search words to the title, perhaps "sofa" "settee" "dark wood" "chair" "antique style" etc. Will get more hits from real buyers searching for something they want rather than just piss taking MN'ers smile

- The cushions do not match, they are even worse than the sofa! I would personally take them off.

- What "make" is it? A popular one? Perhaps add that to the listing if so.

- You are going to need to state any damage (I can see on one of the photos there's some wear on the seats and state if it has been kept in a smokers house. Otherwise you're going to have a disappointed buyer and get shit feedback on your account for his old minging sofa!

I'm bet there's loads of watchers! smile

PessaryPam Fri 30-Nov-12 09:27:10

I'm one of the 55 just for fun grin

cheekybaubles Fri 30-Nov-12 09:41:09

So the vote is that it is 'dusky'? I really don't want to have spent my whole life saying the wrong word.

Did the cushions really come with it? They are different bloody awful

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Fri 30-Nov-12 12:29:25

For all we knock this eyesore's appearance, if it's comfy that's a plus. Friends of ours had a classic Chesterfield, very elegant, dominated the room. Ye gods was it uncomfortable to sit on!

Now that's a good point Donkey- my sofa is very modern, and square and plain brown leather. Its bloody crap for getting comfy on of an evening as the arms have a limited amount of padding to them. They are also both two seaters, and being 5 feet 8, lazing on them length ways is not an option!

I used to have a very expensive Habitat sofa which wasn't leather but had removable covers. It lasted well, except it faded as we had to wash it loads due to both the dcs being very small. We dyed it black, which gave us another year with it before the springs went from the dcs jumping on it.

At least this one has the solid build that makes it last years. Even if it does resemble a fanjo or Arsene Wenger's face.

I would think it would suit Peter Stringfellow, he likes a fanjo after all......

Oh My fecking God its had a bid with 8 hours to go! Its not one of you lot pissing about is it?

The cushions are so bad that if in a gunman situation I had to have the sofa or the cushions, I would choose the sofa.

There could be a last minute flurry of bidding! <cackle>.

How many watchers now OP?

Ugh I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks sitting on it would feel like sitting in a fanj.

Ever wondered what it feels like to be a penis? Let this unique sofa envelop you in its sort pink folds...

soft pink folds

lol... well it has a bid.... £102 anyone?

The theatre I used to work for bought all its furniture & props from eBay. All sorts of broken/hideous stuff that even the sellers must have wondered what we wanted it for. So you never know!

It would be ok if re upholstered in fabric I think.
I mean, your friend liked it, so others will as well.

He still likes it! Its just the place he is moving to comes with a sofa already.

It has 65 watchers now, over a thousand views which surely can't just be all you lot? Perhaps the lady who has bid has seen all the views and thought she'd beat the rush!

No, don't bid on it, he has to get rid by Tuesday, or he'll lose out whatever he seemingly may get for it

At least the bidder has plenty of feedback so most likely real. Can he block anyone with no or limited positive feedback? That way you could stop any mner bidding for a laugh.

Sorry 68 watchers
