Do people really buy used clothes on eBay?

Yes! Many buyers know the quality of a certain brand of clothing, but purchasing a $80 pair of jeans isn't in their budget. Some consumers don't mind wearing seconds if they can save money and still have name brands.

Not too long ago I had three pair of designer jeans. I purchased new for around $80 each (before I had my daughter). I knew I was never going to be able to fit into them again, but I paid too much for them just to hope I would lose weight. So I decided to put them on eBay to see what they would bring. I was shocked each pair sold for over $40 and one pair for all most $50.

I often wonder who in the world would pay $50 for a pair of used jeans... I guess the same person that would spend $80 (blush).


  1. I found your blog and I am a ebay seller looking for new motivation. I'll be watching!

  2. I do as well. I use it for more main stream items - dvds, books, some toys and other items it can be the easiest way to go. You don't need to take pictures and your descriptions are short.

  3. people are always amazed when I tell them what I sell my daughters clothing for! I have also bought lots of fun stuff for myself.... much of it new. Thanks for visiting my bloggy!
