So gutted - 132 views and slippers not sold! Had 2 watchers and one guy wanting extra tights and panties. What am I doing wrong? Didn't reply I'm afraid - too shy.

Ha ha lukey - make sure u don't do it at work. Know someone who got caught at work going through sports bags and sniffing trainers and sweaty pants!

Think ill stick to selling baby stuff!

No! - what - how - did he express a want for extra tights and knickers? I am strangely absorbed by the whole notion!

Hi sent a message asking if lucky enough to win this, would I give him a pair of tights and panties that I'd worn. Then didn't answer so bang, the only watcher I had gone!!!!!

There is a MNer who sold her son's left shoe (after he lost the right shoe) on eBay shock

Ancient thread!

DeafLeopard Wed 02-Jan-13 19:54:51

Can't believe I read through the whole thread and only at the end realised it was a zombie thread!

I am a size 8 though with v sweaty feet <<ponders money making venture>>

I know that this is an absolute zombie thread, but LukeyG has totally made it worth poking the walking thread.

I've been tempted - I'm a goth with size 9 feet, I reckon some of my knackered old Demonia boots would be worth a few quid...grin

oh no no - type in worn tights or used tights - you eill be astounded honestly. soft porn pictures with a dslisclaimer "picture is for representative purposes and contains no sexual content" except the woman is virtually naked and doubled over. I suspect its an advertising thing for prostitutes - have no proof. I posted on this a while back, found it extremely disturbing as kids tights also come up.

Oops I mean I posted on MN not on Ebay!

Have never sold old shoes but a few years ago when I was still at uni I sold some used socks! It was kind of unintentional but I made a bit of money out of it. I made a separate account and listed them at 99p so no listing charge and made sure postage covered the cost of a new pair of cheap socks. Lost interest after a bit though and stopped after a few months. Didn't get any problems with ebay or any of the bidders, some where really nice actually. But you do have to have an open mind to do that kind of thing.

Hi, thanks to lukey g for having the guts to write that post, there are other guys who like the 'well worn' look , and I also have a small collection of my own. It's not as pervy as it's sounds, I just like wearing them, nothing more, don't ask why, I have no ideas, lol. And to all you considering selling, go for it, why not make a few quid?
Thanks for reading my post.
