How to describe this shirt?

I am selling a boy's shirt on ebay and its in really good condition but it does have a very, very faint mark on the front and one on the hem along the bottom.

Thing is these marks are hardly noticable, I tried to take a photo of them and they didn't even show on the photo. You would really have to stare at the shirt for a few minutes to find them.

However because I've described the shirt as having "a few light marks" I think it makes it sound worse than it is. There has been one person watching it but as soon as the auction got to under 3 hours they took it off their watching list.

So do I:

Relist the shirt and again explain about the marks?

Relist the shirt and don't mention the marks?

Accept that it won't sell and take it to charity shop?

I would relist it and mention the marks but maybe re word it slightly.
I sold my baby sling and said it was faded from washing and got no bids. So relisted didn't change wording and it sold for £8.
Good luck

relist but mention the marks as you will only get the buyer emailing you to complain when they recieve it.

just say what you've said in your post here MrsSnape.

ie 'barely noticeable marks that you would have to stare at for a few minutes to see' wink

Agree with Harpo - if the mark doesn't come out in the photos I always include the photos & state that I tried to take a photo of it but it didn't show up!
