I don't know. My Mom picked me up some EUC BGs at a children's consignment store for $6 each...no one knew what they were...so it's possible that the Mama doesn't know about DS! We pay more than people who have no idea what they're buying.

Re: wow! so cheap! whats the catch??

I don't think I'd be too nervous if I met up and was able to look at them before purchasing.

From the pics, the only issues that come to mind are:
1. She is not showing the inners so they could be stained
2. The elastic looks pretty loose on some of them

Hmmm... that is cheap. I noticed that in the title they called them AIOs. Maybe they don't know much about cloth diapers. They also said they paid $10 each for them. So either they bought them used or they are seconds. (You'd think if you bought that many FBs new - you would remember how much they cost.) I hope that it is just a good deal! But I would be nervous too....

I just looked again. It looks like some of those inserts are hemp. That is a great deal

Re: wow! so cheap! whats the catch??

I always list stuff for really cheap when I list them on craigslist just so I can get rid of them.

Example: When we switched to cloth I had over 300 diapers in size three and four because we shopped at Sam's Club for them. I knew they would never get used and I wanted someone who could use them to have them so I sold the whole lot of them for $25. They retailed for at least twice that...probably more but I wanted them out of my house and wanted someone who could use them to have them for a great deal.

It might just be that she is done having kids and wants to get rid of them.
