Selling DD's Ballroom & Latin dresses - can I say I'm taking them to a comp & I might sell them there or is that bad form

The comp is this Saturday & I'd like to start them tonight to finish next weekend. But this Saturday is Blackpool & I might sell them there - is that bad form? Or is it allowed?

Should I wait until Sunday to list them?

well you can end an auction anything up to 12 hours before it ends - but I guess it will be less hassle to list them on sunday. You may find they attract more buyers if they end on a monday or tuesday anyway, I find sunday isn't the best night to end items.

Oh so a week would be OK & I could end on Sunday if I sold them


KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 22:06:14

Sorry I meant

'Thanks' blush

Arrgh - it won't let me put a courier

I'll never post a ballroom dress for £4.75

fergoose Tue 30-Oct-12 22:14:22

how about collect plus - are they really that heavy?

KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 22:15:16

Not heavy just big sort of 4 ft by 6 inches by 2 ft iyswim

You have to keep dimensions to 30x50x30 for collect + though.

KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 22:16:44

Shall I put collect in person but I will courier for whatever it costs

fergoose Tue 30-Oct-12 22:20:05

if you do collection in person it must be cash only

could you not get an idea of a courier price to add to the listing?

KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 22:21:31

I tried to put in £12 but it said £4.75 maximum

KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 22:26:52

& can you put more photos on?

4 isn't really enough

fergoose Tue 30-Oct-12 22:29:56

£12 seems very expensive - is that the cheapest you can get?

KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 22:31:14

That's how much the person I bought it from spent - if it's less I'll refund (shall I write that in?)

KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 22:38:50

I have worked out how to add more photos

KatyMac Tue 30-Oct-12 23:08:26

Gulp - done it I think

5 listings with 7 dresses

Blimey that was hard work

They all start tomorrow & finish around 8 on Monday - hopefully t hat will work

KatyMac Wed 31-Oct-12 21:35:20

I have 1 watcher

KatyMac Thu 01-Nov-12 18:53:02

I have 5 watchers but when I search I can't find them

I must have listed them wrong
