I am quite new to ebay and I listed my bugaboo pink cameleon in prams and now I cannot find it in the listings when I look for it. Have I made some rookie error? I keep checking the listing and it seems ok. Advice welcome, thank you.

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 20:57:34

I've just done a search for bugaboo pink cameleon on ebay - can you give me any more hints as to which one it could be so I can tell you if it's there or not? (starting price, title, etc?)

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 20:58:43

oh and how long ago did you list it? Sometimes take a little while for it to show up in listings

bamboostalks Fri 31-Oct-08 21:02:33

Listed about an hour ago and put a reserve price of £250 on it, thanks for your help.

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 21:03:03

bidders can't see your reserve price grin

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 21:04:55

ok - could just be that it's not showing yet - it will do give it time, I've found sometimes an item listed can be "found" within minutes, other times can take AGES.

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:04:55

have yu spelt the title right?

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:06:09

also whats the item number and will check it over for you

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 21:06:27

ah yes - just came back to ask what Misdee said grin

bamboostalks Fri 31-Oct-08 21:10:53

Thanks ladies. This is all new to me!

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:15:21

listing looks ok.

however, i would add more close up pictures using photobucket and HTML codes (free pics!). do close up of wheels, etc.

also if possible offer to box up and use a courier to send out which is fully insured. collection only limits your buyers.

i dont suppose you have any other colour fabrics as pink also puts off buyers.

bamboostalks Fri 31-Oct-08 21:19:05

No other colours I'm afraid, I love pink and nver thought about resale!
I'm a bit lazy with it all tbh and just want rid, it is taking up space in a small house. I don't know anything about photobucket, will inverstigate though.
Thanks for all your help, you always seem the buggy expert on these pages.

bamboostalks Fri 31-Oct-08 21:20:06

In your expert opinion do you think it will sell as it is for £250? That is all I want really.

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:21:23

wash every part possible. all the fabrics can be washed at 30 degrees (no fabric conditioner as otherwise the bugaboo swirl will peel off). rub down frame, wash wheels (yes really) and oil all moving parts (do you have the maintance kit?).

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:22:10

you should get £300-£350.

if i knew you were selling earlier i would buy it for myself as am having a girl. but already have my buggy sorted

bamboostalks Fri 31-Oct-08 21:22:21

Yes I have it...totally untouched!

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 21:22:34

actually talking about buggy's - while Misdee is here and a captive audience wink (apologies for thread hi-jack)

Do you reckon a Hauck Infinity Esprit, with black puschair, red and cream car seat and carry cot, black cosy toes, 17 months old (at the moment) good condition (apart from having lost the button to do up the pocket at the back of the pushchair bit) would have a reasonable re-sale price??

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:23:22

have you tried the for sale boards on here though? its £5 for CAT facility, and a lot less fee's than ebay.

will also see if people i know are interested.

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 21:23:46

actually I'm lying out my arse - it's a black carseat grin

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:24:29

£100 roughly FAQ. is that reasonable to you? i dont know what you paid, but have looked at these in the past, lovely little systems.

bamboostalks Fri 31-Oct-08 21:24:44

Yes I have put it on here as I have cat.

bamboostalks Fri 31-Oct-08 21:25:31

Thanks Misdee appreciate all your help.

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 21:29:58

hehe - well anything over erm.........FREE is reasonable to me - can't even remember what we paid for it, I remember going to kiddicare armed with the £500 sure start maternity grant beginning of last year, spent 3hours looking at systems, having gone with the intention of buying the bugaboo - decided it wasn't right so had to find something else, we filled the car to the brim with stuff <<<<<<<tries to wrack brains>>>>> nope can't remember lol.

Just trying to decide whether it flog it now while it's still in fairly decent condition and buy a cheap umbrella (that lies flat(ish)) one now, or hang on to it until DS3 is out of it (I do love my Hauck grin) and sell it (probably for a LOT less.........or even end up giving it away free like my previous pushchairs hehe) then.

It is a lovely pushchair so I'm not sure..........

misdee Fri 31-Oct-08 21:30:52

FAQ, keep it if you like it. you dont drive do you? a stroller wont be the same to push.

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 21:38:15

sorry for hi-jacking bamboo blush

I do like it and no I don't drive, it's just it's so big, it sits in my (narrow) hallway all the time and it's starting to irritate me slightly having squeeze past it to answer the door (or people having to squeeze past it to get through..........I'm not being sizeist here, but I'm very glad that none of my friends are more than about size 16-18 - or they'd never get through - the gap is that small grin).

The only place to put it once folded is the other end of the kitchen, and it's PITA trying to fold it, get it through 2 doorways (one with a stairgate on it) to put away.....

But then again I suppose I may find somewhere to live after Christmas when I move where that's not a problem......

Oh and if I'm going to see any friends and it involes a bus journey (visited Quadrophenia a week or so again and hope to repeat in the future, and also visit ShelleyLou often too) it's a nightmare to fold and put in the luggage bit if there's already a pushchair unfolded on there.

I know a stroller wouldn't be the same - had a cheap Toys'r'us one for DS3 when he was little and it just wasn't the same.
