Bipolar Ebaying and Selling Big Ol’ Panties to Men
Posted Sep 12 2008 3:39pm
My friends and family know that I am addicted to eBay. More selling than buying. But, just like everything else in my life, my ebaying follows cycles, too. When I’m in a high-in-the-sky cycle, I am constantly thinking of ways to do things different, improve myself, or….MAKE MONEY to pay off the mountains of bills my husband constantly makes. And, I get some pretty far-out ideas that actually WORK sometimes.
My latest idea (which has been profitable) was to buy panties at clearance sales and resell them for a profit. Not to offend anyone, but very large items of clothing sell well on ebay. So, if I came across sizes that were somewhat large at cheap prices, I buy them all. Lately, I’ve been listing bikini panties, thong panties, sexysexysexy panties in sizes 1x all the way up to size 6x. And, they are bought and I usually triple my investment. The one thing that I starting noticing though, was that these big ol’ panties sell mostly to men. Seriously. I’ve thought about this quite a bit and come to the conclusions that it is one of 3 things:
a. They are chubby-chasers and buy them for the extra-large women in their life.
b. They are buying them as gags or jokes.
c. They are wearing them.
I believe that c is the real reason.
So, I’m a tranny panty seller. But, it’s OK as long as I don’t have to measure or fit the customers.
As I said, my eBaying follows cycles like everything else in my life. The bad thing about this is I might list a bunch of stuff while in a pretty good/slightly manic mood and……take a dive to the low side while the stuff is still listed. Then, it becomes a Jekyll/Hyde situation. Example:
LISTING: NWT GORGEOUS PINK LIZ CLAIBORNE SPRING SWEATER SZ M
Buyer question…….can you tell me the bust measurement?
GOOD MOOD ANSWER……Sure, it measures 36 inches from armpit to armpit. It also measures 25 inches in length. If you have any other questions, let me know and I will be happy to answer them. Thanks for your question and have a beautiful day.
BAD MOOD ANSWER….Why are you bothering me? Can’t you read, you illiterate dumbass? It plainly states in the description that it is a MEDIUM, moron . When you have a real question, then ask it.
Question……..what shade is the pink?
GM ANSWER……It’s a lovely light shade, almost the color of a pink baby blanket. It’s springy and a good color to put you in a great mood for the whole day. Here are some examples of the shades of pink that I found on a garden website. (inserts pics of 2o different pink flowers). I think the color of the sweater most resembles the “Lady of the Brook” gardenia in the front row, third from the left. Hope this helps you decide. The colors of our clothes are so important in the way we appear to others. Wishing you and your loved ones a fantastic life.
BM ANSWER…….Geez, how many friggin’ shades of PINK are there, stupid? Check your crayon box as I am sure you still own some. Look at the damn picture. If you can’t see the color in the picture, then you don’t need a damn pink sweater. You need to stay home and wear a feedsack!!! DO NOT bother me with any more ignorant quesitons. I’m not your personal stylists!
Buyer question……can you tell me how much it will cost to ship this to Australia?
GM Answer……Sure. I’ll package it up and take it to the post office right now to get an absolute correct quote. I don’t want my customers paying too much shipping. That’s just not the right way to conduct business. I’ll get back to you in about an hour.
Get the picture????? I guess that’s why some weeks I make hundreds of dollars and other weeks, I get hate mail. Go figure……..
