FB seconds?

So, I've been buying a lot of fb's lately, and only 2 momma's said they were seconds. But, all but 2 of my 13 fb's have marks on the tags. What's the deal? Do momma's not know they're seconds? Are they not telling me they're seconds? Or are some just marked? I saw some on ebay that had a mark on the tag, I asked the seller if they were seconds because of the mark, and they said they bought them new, and not from the seconds store. I'm just wondering, because when I go to resell these, I want to make sure the other mommas know what they're buying, unlike me. I guess as far as I can tell, I've been buying seconds, but paying for firsts.

Re: FB seconds?

I think you have been buying seconds and paying for firsts. Whether or not the sellers have intentionally mislead you is hard to say. When buying fbs, I ask if the tags are marked and assume that means they are seconds. I don't buy seconds because I would rather just wait for a good deal on first quality ones & I usually keep resale value in mind. That said, I think it only knocks a buck or so off each diaper for being a second.

I personally don't mind buying seconds, as long as I pay the right price for them. I just don't want to mislead anyone when Logan outgrows them and I sell them. Thanks mommas!
