Is anyone still buying longies?

I have a pair of longies and cannot for the life of me figure out why I bought them. It is already verging on 80 here in Tx and they are not going to fit by next winter. I want to sell them but is it pointless with summer fast approaching?

Re: Is anyone still buying longies?

Its always worth a shot, but they will inevitably sell better come the end of summer, when people start thinking about winter.

I can afford to hang onto mine until next winter, so I am going to wait, because I think you can probably get a better price for them after summer. But, some people buy ahead of the season, so if you offer them for a good price, you might have some luck. Its also still cold some parts of the country for a couple more months.

We use longies at night when the A/C is on. Kolten absolutely refuses to sleep under the covers, lol. Alot of mamas are still in cooler weather and some do use them indoors during the day and at night. Its worth a shot and if you cannot get what you want for them, hang onto them til after summertime.

That's what I'd do too. If you can't get what you want, hang onto them.

I'm in texas too and we use longies with tank tops almost all summer long. DD wears them inside, to sleep in and will probably wear them outside this summer to protect her knees while playing.

Re: Is anyone still buying longies?

I’m in CA and its gorgeous here!! But our evenings and nights will still be getting cold for several months and our nights will cool off most of the summer so DS will wear longies all year. I’m still buying/making a few for him and I’m getting bigger sized ones for fall/winter too.
I’d post them for sale if I where you!! I’m going to be posting a couple pairs that DS out grew soon.

I'm just finishing up a custom pair of longies. It's warm here now but by the end of the week it's going to be cold again.
