Help! Does anyone have this old stocking?

I've been stalking EBay for the past couple of years trying to find one of these stockings.

I've since had our last child and I'd absolutely LOVE to get this old stocking for him so he has the same as his siblings.

It's a Mamas and Papa's large stocking.
It says 'My Christmas Stocking' on it. I originally bought them a good 7 ish years ago.

It's velour and red and light green.

If anyone has one, and could part with it, (of course I'm happy to pay and cover all costs).. I will be eternally grateful.

Thank you x

No, but may I suggest a new thread title? Maybe mentioning Mamas and Papas. Then you might have more of a chance of some one seeing it who has one. I thought this was going to be about people selling their worn out clothes on eBay.

You could contact their customer services? They could double check every store stock file potentially smile

I think I have this stocking still from my eldest so who is 9, I will see if I can find it but we may very possibly has dispensed of it last Christmas when we were having a sort out... I'm not particularly precious about it so if we do have it I'll let you know!

I've contacted mamas and papas this year to get hold of a 2012 bauble after my son's broke. They came back very quickly, but told me they don't hold on to any old Christmas stock. Your best bet would be to contact the outlet stores and ask as this is where it would be passed on to, but I was told its normally the previous year's stock they have - not any older.

I'd get this thread removed, the bidding is oddly high for something with 9 days to go.

On second thoughts, leave it up. You have 9 days to find a cheaper one, hopefully someone else will have one.

It started at £9.99 that's probably why it seems high!!! Hope you get it!!!santa

I'm pleased you found it!

Partybugs Mon 16-Nov-15 21:19:13

Thanks everyone.. My bid is in!! Fingers crossed. Xx

Hope you win, op! smile

I try to avoid getting into a bidding war by using AuctionStealer. I put my max bid into AuctionStealer and it bids for you automatically 10 seconds before the end of the auction. Might be worth a try?

And yes, I know everyone hates me wink

thomasrichard I have been outbid so many times by sniping software. I don't have a problem with it, really, it's a loophole. If you really want something, I think you have to go with the sniping software.

OP there are 3 bids, I hope you have gone high!

Thank you so so so much everyone but especially the person who sold it. Absolutely delighted that all 4 kids will have the same stocking.. Xxxx
