I mainly list BIN so time does not affect it, which is nice...

What do you mean one time to list it? Do you mean with free listings or a certain time of day or week

I know spring/early summer is best for listing summer items. This time of year is still selling, but I think buyers would expect to get more of a bargain, buy ahead for next year etc. I have a lot of gymbo summer boys listed with some watchers. I'm kinda torn as I would like them for my DS, so if they do not sell then no biggie.
I am saving summer gymbo for next year.

I need to buy a scale...that is first on my reinvest list. Figuring out has been tricky. Hopefully I didn't mess up and lose money. I went by what others listed things as.

Is flat rate priority?

Here are the shoes
Wouldn't a big girls size 6 and a women's size 6 be the same size?

Sorry I was typing while nursing and not really paying attention to either thing LOL....I'm a lurker here, and I thought that I mentioned one time that summer things are still selling due to australia, etc being different seasons....Thats what I was refering to. I really don't want to wait until next spring yet again.

No, girls is youth and same size as boys. Women's 8 = youth 6/men's 6.
Well, I'm not 100% positive. I only have sons.

Good luck Sarah, I hope it works out.

I did go to savers on Monday, 50% off etc. There regular price is SO overpriced though. I really see them like a expensive thrift store or almost a clothes mentor type store without the consignment. I did hear that they benefit a local charity depending on your location, ours is epilesy. The whole thing seems a little shady to me though as it's not excactly obvious where the $$ goes to. I feel like it is really a for profit business with a small portion going to charity? I really need to check it out more. The lady did show me a punch card, buy so much, get a punch, then discount. Also if you donate that day, you get a 10% discount. So that is good.

I didn't do GW as I was busy yesterday.

Took pics today and will try to list like crazy tonight as tomorrow is busy too. LO is sick again(fever) and wants to be held all the time today except when napping.
You know, somehow I missed there were Savers up near Chicago. Yes, it is supposedly for the epilepsy foundation. When we moved, I actually donated a TON to them (Amvets also) because both places did monthly pickups in my town. I donated a lot of good stuff too.... that was before I started ebaying and I just wanted everything gone. Anyway, I hope at least some of the $ they earn with donations goes to a good cause.

I don't know I hope so? I don't have kids that old so I am not sure. Skechers' size charts have a size 6 in kids and a size 6 in womens and they correlate to different EU sizes so I think they are different. Well, I'll just keep my fingers crossed, not much more I can do!

Yep, that's how I thought it was too. I don't know why they have to make shoe sizes so darn confusing.

Those are a womens style - I have a few similar and have seen those ones too. I've actually never seen them as a girls, but then again I wouldn't be looking

OK, good to know it's not me. We had internet/power problems yesterday. Guess I will have to somehow manually update the tracking #

I think Savers are just newish to up here as I have only heard of them in the last 6 months and also heard an ad on the radio.




OK, so I ordered this great set off ebay for LO in supposed to be size 2T. Love the outfit, been looking for it for awhile. I bid high enough as I really wanted it. Two tops, one pants. Well I got it today and the pants and one top are a size 3T and the other top is size 12-18 months And there is a pen mark on the top(white top/creamish) and also a lot of washwear. None of this was mentioned in the listing.

So I emailed stating this and not sure what I expect, but I think you should at least list the correct size or say the sizes but fit's like blah blah.....

I don't mind the washwear as much as I know it happens easily with this brand, but I think another buyer would be very unhappy.

What do you guys think
