eBay? Yeah, we love it too

How many of you spend hours trolling eBay with no specific purpose? We’re guilty of the eBay browse and we totally encourage this behaviour. Regular viewing can turn up some terrific bargains on, well, pretty much anything.

eBay can be a fun, cheap way to buy clothes. It satisfies the urge to shop while also giving a second chance to used items. It can also get pretty competitive. Personally, I prefer the tortuous approach to bidding where you forego the maximum bid option and instead sit watching the time tick down, hoping that no one will sail in and make a last ditch attempt to foil your buying. Matt tells me this is very amateur eBaying but I think it adds to the thrill.

Do not be afraid to buy clothes on eBay. If there are no stains or rips then, once washed they can be like new – and all yours. Most of the time, you won’t know where their brand new clothes have been either! There is LOADS of tat on eBay but if you narrow your search to brands you know you love, or to hard wearing fabrics, like denim, then you’re bound to come up with a winner (or six!). Ask questions about sizing because some brands come up small or big and you can’t usually return items bought on eBay. Also, take in to account that a worn item has probably shrunk and you might have to size up.

Soon you’ll be browsing eBay for The Fableists’ clothing. In the meantime, admire some of my latest eBay purchases – some great items!
