  • i do ebay but read what you are getting. Sometimes stuff still has teh tags on it and sometimes it gently worn. I have bought adn sold clothing on ebay and have always had a positive experience

  • eBay, and I buy in lots. I've gotten ten or more outfits, and even with shipping the cost has been next to nothing per item! I read the descriptions carefully, examine the photos closely, see what brands are included (higher quality brands tend to look newer longer), and figure out the cost (WITH shipping) per item. I once got six shirts for myself for a winning bid of $1 plus shipping, and they were in excellent condition! And about 3/4 of my kids' clothes are from eBay, and it's worked really well for us.

  • I buy from EBay, also in lots. I have bought from Craigslist before, but that's more complicated. With EBay, things tend to better quality or better taken care of, and also, more reasonably priced.

  • I have bought a red, wool peacoat, it is beautiful, used from E-bay.
    Also I bought several sets of boys clothes for a great price, I was very happy with them. It is nice to not have to leave the house to shop, and the stuff is guarenteed or your money back.

  • I buy and sell on ebay my childrens clothing and I sell my clothing on ebay...oh and all my friends old clothes too that they are going to throw away or goodwill. Read descriptions carefully, check return policies, and know ebay policies regarding returns. Dont forget to check the sellers feedback. One or negative is going to happen, but its a red flag if its 5 out of 20. I've had 1 negative out of 117...and the lady scammed me...i gave her a full refund, never got the item back, and then she left negative feedback! So, it happens. If you find one item you like from someone, check the rest of their listings to see if there are more items you like and if they will combine shipping. It will save you money in the end...if they dont combine shipping I suggest finding something else because its cheaper for us as an auctioner to combine than ship seperate. Hope this helps...feel free to PM me with any questions!
