My friend and I are going to be having a monster ebay clearout of clothes - probably about 80 or so items between us.
When I see pictures of clothes on hangers against walls, they often look uninspiring - whereas stuff on mannequins gives you a better idea of what it looks like.
So can I ask you all - do you think that clothes displayed on a mannequin make you more likely to buy/pay a bit more. I can buy one for £20 - so if it increases the selling price of half of the items by just 50p, then I'd not have lost anything. What do you reckon?
My sister bought a really cheap plastic torso thing & sold really well on eBay. I think in life no term it's worth it as looks better. I think if you can model on yourself things do really well? Is that an option? Good luck I hate eBay - just had some stuff returned but funnily enough hasn't turned up here yet!
Don't mind a mannequin as long as it is clean , have seen some manky horrors on eBay! I hate seeing clothes being worn by the seller, or even seeing their finger in a photo , gives me the creeps, I don't want to think about who has worn it before me.
I have a mannequin and I sell tons on eBay. I think it looks more professional. Get one of those dress maker ones. The ones where it's the upper body on a wooden stand. I've got a size 10-12 in that. I'm about to invest in another in a size 18-20. Looks tidier and gives buyer a good idea of how it will look on. Loads better than hanging on a hanger. It also pisses me off seeing things in the background. I have an eBay room, what I like to call my office! Rails, n rails of clothes, n shelving etc, and a plain white raised platform with white backdrop with my mannequin on. That's what I take all my pics on.
