I may get flamed for saying this...

but I just have to get it out.

Anyone else notice the sudden influx of FCB fitteds on Ebay from the last stocking?

Last month it was Elbee... I think this month may be FCB.

Maybe March will be... I dunno, BBB? :LOL Although I think maybe three people own all of them (you know who you are!!! :LOL)

Okay Holli, make that four people

And for what it's worth, I think it is totally cool to sell things on Ebay cuz lately I have been selling all my diapers there instead of the TP (so much easier and things actually sell for the price I would like!). Yes even hyena things BUT I do get a bit wierded out when all these auctions pop up saying they over bought by accident after the stocking.

ETA: I get weirded out because it makes me sad for the people who tried so hard to get something and didn't get anything.

true, but even if everyone could have only bought 2 diapers max at the stocking and they had to sign a pledge that the diapers were for themselves and they were going to love them like another child for as long as they fit, there still would have been a lot of mamas that would have come away with nothing when they really wanted a FCB.

At least with ebay if you really want something you have more of a chance.

I got an LC that was too big for us, and I considered selling it on ebay because I could have gotten more $, but ended up passing it on to an mdc mama that I'm sure will love itl

Well personally when you need money you need money and if one particular brand of diaper is going to make you some why not.

You know, I say the Fluffy mamas really ought to impose buying limits at their stockings. In the larger retail world stores often limit the quantity that one buyer can purchase. It just doesn't seem fair to anyone that a customer is able to buy "in bulk" (and then make a profit) while other customers hope against hope of ever owning the product.

I will refrain from commenting on selling on ebay but that is just my $.02 on FM diapers.

IMO, selling new hyena diapers is like cutting off your nose to spite your face. I can't imagine that you would be considered a "good" customer when you do that. And I want to have good relationships with my WAHMs.

The only time that I could comprehend selling hyena stuff on eBay was when your diapering days were over and it was time to cash out, so to speak.

And I know that you aren't talking about my BBB. :LOL

Yup. I'll put on my flame-proof panties and stand next to you on that one . There's a difference between an impulse buy of one diaper and what's going on lately, this is getting a bit out of hand. I think I liked it better when you (generic you) didn't safely escape with a diaper until you checked out with it. More people got to share in the fluffy love, and less got to turn an Ebay profit. (small disclaimer: I'm not talking about anyone in particular, but just an observation)

I went. I saw. I definitely noticed!

The word scalping comes to mind. If you really "accidentally" over bought (yeah right), then put a 'buy it now' for the original purchase price.

I am sure I will be in the doghouse again, but my opinion has not changed

Well wouldn't you have to pay return shipping? Then you would be out of some money off the bat.
Also weren't there some sizing issues with this round so perhaps they didn't fit like they had hoped?
The only place that I've ever shopped where buying limits are imposed is the grocery store and its for loss leader items. Not full retail items.

I haven't sold a NEW fcb on ebay, but I did sell a used one once. I understand why there are rules for the tp but that limits those who haven't met the requirments! I wouldn't buy a new one to sell on ebay! I think that is sad.

the sizing issues are being fixed fully, so if it was a size issue why not send it back for the replacement?
Well some people are liking the roomier fit. So the OB(original buyer) sending it back would mean that someone else who likes the roomier fit couldn't purchase it. Anyhow its a free country and the FM mamas are business women and if the reselling bothered them they could do something like impose limits or go to selling on Ebay themselves. I don't know why I jumped in here because I haven't bought any FCB stuff for ages but I get bothered when I see these threads because I wonder why the heck do people care what they do with stuff once its purchased and paid for?
