I wonder if any MN'er can help give me any selling tips?

My ebay items just don't seem to be selling as I would like.

Would any of you kind Mn'ers take a look and advice me where I might be going wrong?

Here is mine - cgi.ebay.co.uk/VINTAGE-COCA-COLA-BAY-WATCH-RED-SWIMSUIT-SWIM-SUIT-10_W0QQitemZ280245351183QQihZ018QQ categoryZ14221QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262
click on view other items to see the rest.

You don't think anyone would mind me wearing the swimming costume before they buy it do you? And also, does listing my vital statistics alienate women in some way?

TIA.

are you laughing at my 38-28-38 statistics or my merchandise?

Personally there's too much writing for me to bother reading (though it is late on a sat night!). Also the buy-it-now price of £45 puts me off. That's a lot for a second hand swinsuit.

I would immediately move on and look at something else.

Ah ok. perhaps it is too wordy. would you like this?

ermm, are you serious? It's awful what is it? And still horrendously wordy.

Or are you just trying to advertise?

Yeees, reread op "click on other items to view the rest".

hmm

Fuck your grins. Piss off.

Do you think anyone on mumsnet is gonna buy your crap following this?

People clicking on your item following the link is only any good to you if they're going to bid. And believe me, they won't.

I think it would be better if you had orange shoes to match and the cossie showed a bit more of the garden

ahh, insider love, click here and calm down smile

theinsider Sat 19-Jul-08 23:46:16

ah pooter thanks for filling me in. Serves me right for clicking on an "ebay" thread, usually avoid them like the plague. And that's why I didn't click on two ebay threads the same evening. And "shawl" in the title - nope, was never going to get there under my own steam.

grin

Glad to see it's not a "genuine" mumsnetter. As you can see steam was coming my ears at the half-wit who thought these were decent adverts/items etc. Thought after all this time it was time to move on to netmums babycentre another site.

LOL I was beginning to wonder if it was serious after reading your posts Insider!
