Selling bra sets - what do you make of this message?

I am having a big clear out. I am only an occasional ebayer, usually selling kids clothes and lots of DH shirts & suits (he lost lots of weight smile)

So I konded my drawers and found Lots of lovely bras and matching knickers that are in a bra size I will never get back in (34d envy) so listed them too.

Now.....I got this message today, and it was a bit wierd somehow, am I missing something experienced ebay folk? It was the use of a name and the ... confused

Hello dear curious.

Re the bra sets: We're thinking of bidding on some of these. The ones Lara likes are the brown and the floral, also the 2 x black, the red, the white.
Realistically we hope we might get one or two.

Beautiful items. Only 99p? Have they had much wear? Any damage?
We're 'green' so we don't mind second hand stuff, though we do want vgc. Trust we wouldn't be disappointed on quality....

And you combine postage? That's good.

Thank you.

I would say 'Lara' doesn't exist, and it is in fact Larry who wants the underwear for his own enjoyment!

Dont reply. At all.

Seeyounearertime Mon 18-Jan-16 11:49:01

not sure what you mean op?

it reads as though English may be their second language and they're simply asking about wear and damage etc.

Tell him youve never washed them and the reserve is £700. You'll make a mint.

Seriously though - who buys and sells second hand knickers?? shock

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 11:55:22

The bras are all lovely and hardly worn!

The mixed replies echo my puzzlement!!!!

Seeyounearertime Mon 18-Jan-16 12:00:43

Seriously though - who buys and sells second hand knickers??

would you like to know?
there is a massive market for them with good money to be made for the most fragrant... grin

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 12:00:47

meht do you think it is dodgy then?

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 12:01:45

Argh! I am too naive for this...should stick to mini boden shock

OhShutUpThomas Mon 18-Jan-16 12:01:55

Oh I know that seeyou grin

I meant, who legitimately does it??

AndNowItsSeven Mon 18-Jan-16 12:03:11

You can't sell second hand knickers on eBay it breaks the T and Cs.

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 12:03:51

Legimately...It would appear to be me blush

Seeyounearertime Seriously? I'm having a big sort out and I've got loads of old bras and pants but it seems such a shame to chuck them. Where would one go about selling this kind of stuff? Thanks.

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 12:05:19

I am selling them as bra sets...lots of people seem to do it did try to check. Do not want to break rules!

I didn't think eBay allowed sale of used underwear, for obvious reasons.
I have a surplus of good condition bras too , I'm trying to remember where i saw a charity advertise how these were needed for women and girls Africa.

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 12:07:35

I am only selling these as they are in lovely embroider ones on perfect condition and hardly worn, all the normal black / white / nude stuff went straight in the bin with the plain good bras sent to the smalls for all charity.

CatThiefKeith Mon 18-Jan-16 12:07:56

Slightly off topic, but our local freecycle group often has an advert from a bloke looking for second hand tights 'for an art project'. grin

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 12:09:31

Cross post jackie Google or facebook Smalls for All for their address, I have sent my nursing bras to them too.

standingonlego Mon 18-Jan-16 12:10:11

Will just let the auction run and ignore messages! Thank you folks.

Jackie0 Mon 18-Jan-16 12:17:15

That's it standing !
Many thanks

The problem here for you is that it's used bra sets.

TBH, I'd just sell the bras.

Meht Mon 18-Jan-16 13:32:01

Then theres the 'well worn' shoes that people sell on ebay, with pics of their feet, they sell like hot cakes grin

Lweji Mon 18-Jan-16 15:52:10

I hope you are not modelling the sets, btw.

Seeyounearertime Mon 18-Jan-16 16:01:24

Just for you.
