Have a FC dress that is too big, I want to sell it now,thinking this is prep for xmas party.

two questions
1. how low do you start?> I am of the opinion I never sell for less than a fiver - what do you think?

2. How long do you leave it up for? ( I knwo about ending at teh weekend etc)

free listing weekend so you can start at any price you like

i always end on a Mon or Tues night, not a weekend. About 8.30pm onwards is the best time I find.

thanks ferg.
the start price for me is the concern that I will sell it too cheap

fergoose Sat 17-Nov-12 15:09:31

yes - I know what you mean. Well get it listed tonight or tomorrow night then the listing price is free so you can start as high as you like.

What Fergoose said, although I think Friday nights are best time to finish.

HellothisisJoanie Sat 17-Nov-12 15:45:36

I am fairly tall, so I found I had an enthusiastic market for my dresses and shoes - among transvestites with good taste.

No great use, but it still makes me grin.

I think I have enough of your cast offs I have the diet thing cracked now i think.
If I never eat with dp and ds pm (and I hate what they like) weight drops off.

Just to note for the future - the fees (if you have to pay them) are less for a £4.99 start than for a £5 start
