I may get flamed for saying this... - Page 2

post #21 of 65
Edited because I can't say it without sounding rude.

And I wasn't flaming the OP. I think discussing this and sharing opinions is fine, it just always gets ugly. :LOL

Well...I know of one person who bought one to try it out and it didn't fit her son at ALL so she is ebaying it to give other people a chance to score. I don't see anything wrong with that at all..

I used to feel differently about reselling dipes, but came to the conclusion that it's really none of my business.

That is how I feel.Maybe I am self centered but I never sit around and think about what others are doing with their diapers :LOL

Hey, any diaper(or any other item for that matter) is only worth what somebody will pay for it, so to those mammas that sell off diapers, more power to them. Some people put things on eBay only to lose out dearly. Plus it's not so cut and dry as to say that people who bought in bulk are horrible for what they are doing, once the diapers leave the WAHM's hands into the customers, it's the customer's to do with it what they please, right? Maybe some people did buy them in bulk on purpose to sell them, I can understand how it makes them a little deceptive maybe, but it obviously doesn't upset everybody. If you think it's so terrible, then ignore them, your probably only giving them more attention/free advertising, but putting them out there. People who really want the diapers will pay for them, no matter what they may cost.

One thing I'm confused about is the return policy. I sold the FCB that I bought from the stocking before last, I was going to return it, but their website is unclear in their return policy, do they refund your money or give you store credit?

Wow, Am I ranting again? I think I'm starting to lose my mind :

Eh... It's strange. I think that in a perfect world people would offer them back up for sale with a bin of exactly what they paid for it. But we don't live in a perfect world. I was bummed that I HAD no money for the stocking period

And I guess I really don't care what people do with the dipes either. I can't see me paying 85$ for an aio but that's just cause I don't have the money. If I did, I might

Me, too

I just sold 3 Nightlights on eby (they were used, though) and they went higher than I expected. But I hope the mamas love them as much as we did. Now I get to buy some much-needed baby clothes for the little pea on the way. I really don't mind people selling/buying, etc. on ebay, whether new or used. I don't even think about it until someone here posts a thread about it :LOL

I never even knew that its only ok to sell on Ebay when that item is a) readily available and no one else is hard up for one and b) you aren't making a profit.
I thought the main draw of Ebay was from a sellers vantage to buy cheap and ebay for profit and for the buyer to find something that you couldn't go to Walmart and easily purchase. Am I missing something?

you're not missing a thing.


and I agree with Jamie--I don't ponder what others do with their dipes.
Judging a person's actions when you don't know the whole story is just crummy--you don't know why they might need to ebay their brand new hyena fluff and it just isn't anyone outside that family's business.

i just noticed the fcbs on ebay last night, as i was searching ebay for some. but if they need to sell their diapers, it's their business where they sell them. and i'm perfectly happy to buy them!

Well, I'll be the first one here to admit that I have 2 new fcb fitted's on ebay right now. At the last stocking I bought 3 fitteds, 2 nl, and 1 aio. I had every intention of keeping them all. BUT, when fluffy mail had their ebay auctions last week I couldn't resist the poodle AIO. So, since I spent 56.00 on one of their diapers, which I would believe to be a healthy profit. I am selling my 2 least favorite fitted's to make up for the cost.

Actually, I think you hit the nail on the head! :LOL

Pixiedust, I hope you don't feel like you have to justify yourself here. It's really none of anyone's business what you do with your diapers, FCB or otherwise.

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.
this is why I don't buy when they stock. It makes me mad because I know some people buy just to sell for a more expensive price.

*thud* The cosmos must be aligned properly because I've never had so many people agree with anything I've said in my 2 years on MDC.:LOL
I'm all for everyone feeling all snuggly and sharing with those who have less hyena fluff and so on and so forth but thats just unrealistic.

Sweetfeet, Angelica, and others are the voice of reason IMO. You don't have to explain why you buy or sell anything.

BTW - that poodle AIO is SO cute!

Is their some ebay/mothering clause that says you must offer your diapers on the TP at rock bottom prices before selling them on ebay?

I don't get that? So are you boycotting their stockings, do you not want their product and thats why you don't buy or do you wait for the people to sell them marked up? :LOL

There totally is, Lindsay, don't you remember from the last monster thread about this? :LOL There are a lot of 'rules' you have to abide by in the buying/selling of hyena fluff if you don't want a small group of MDC mamas to turn their noses up and think ill of you.

pixiedust you don't have to explain yourself to anyone. But the story you just told has GOT to be familiar to any one of us with fluff addictions--how often have we juggled and redistributed fluff funds/spending when some new thing we just HAD to buy(that maybe we weren't expecting) popped up and we got carried away, budget-wise? This happens to me weekly. I'm a lusty hyena, too.

enjoy that poodle AIO!!
