I am frustrated with eBay for a number of reasons:
Why don't people pay quickly so that you can post quickly?
Why don't people give you feedback?
Why when they do give feedback were they expecting something for nothing? (reason for photo of car boot sale - the good thing about eBay is that you don't actually have to meet these people)
Admittedly it is early days for me, I think I have sold about 30 items but I have certainly come across some strange buyers so far - I wonder what I am doing that attracts them?
The BIG LESSON I have learned is don't buy stuff in the first place, then you won't be spending hours at the computer doing your own virtual Jumble Sale!
To anyone who reads me, and whom I read, sorry for the absence, I have been reading just not commenting, got stuff going on.............................probably why I am ranting about eBay with little justification.

|My Wardrobe needs a serious overhaul not to mention a tidy|
|Can you spot a theme, no only the chaos|
|But the sun is shining and apples need picking|
|Neighbour with ladder - professional picker|
|Caught by the vicar, good job we have permission for scrumping|
|Deep dish apple pie for tea later|
|Off to distribute them around friends and family|

Then feeling brave after managing to get the nail varnish out there, I decided to try with some clothing, these sales end on Wednesday evening. You can tell I am a hoarder, I have had this stuff for ages - perhaps I should have described it as "Vintage" but it will be lovely if someone else gets enjoyment from something I have moved on from.
|Jessica McLintock velvet and brocade swing coat|
|Nicole Farhi Wool and Cashmere swing coat with faux beaver trim|
|A couple of Limited Collection cashmere slouch sweaters|
|Culling my underwear collection|
|Tight fit - brand new Fratelli Rosetti shoes UK 6.5 (his not mine!)|
So, wish me luck, shame I don't know how to add the link so you can bid if you are interested. Please no tips on why I should be keeping any of this stuff or how to transform into this season's must have!

My daughter in Dubai smoking fruit tobacco and blowing smoke rings just like the stoned caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland
Or I could have this lovely make up bag for weekends away.

|From Miu Miu AW 11|
|And this one too|
How beautiful are these two dresses? They are way too expensive at around £2500 and £3500 respectively, I am hoping that someone like LK Bennett will do something similar - still quite expensive but within reach and still well cut, if Zara or H&M copy the look the cut will be awful and the material will be cheap and nasty. They remind me of dresses I wore in my late teens, but I don't think it will be a case of mutton and lamb because they are so feminine and not particularly "trendy". What do you think?
