Can I ask a question of any 1950's/rockabilly dress fans?
Would you pay £25 on eBay for a dress that originally cost £125 and had only been worn once?
I have a really gorgeous and high quality swing dress that I would like to sell but eBay seems pretty dire for sellers at the minute so don't think I'll get any takers. Really don't want to put it on auction and get pennies .
If you had a big party or a wedding coming up a) would you look on eBay? And b) would you spend £25 on a 'used' dress?
I used to buy clothes on eBay but have found that often they are on there because they are poor quality or a weird fit. I would be more tempted if you accepted returns. What size- looking for one for a wedding!
I occasionally look on eBay, but I primarily look on Facebook now. The collectif selling group allows sales of similar brands, and for size 14 upwards the fuller figure fuller wardrobe group is very popular.
Perhaps see if a friend would be willing to join some of the relevant groups and sell on your behalf? If it’s a specialist dress that will be best appreciated by enthusiasts then Ebay isn’t really the place.
Alternatively, is there a good vintage store or dress agency anywhere near you?
