I have some hand dyed MEOS on ebay, and no ones touched them! Why not? They are perfect, and I liked them so much I kept half of them. I thought they would be more popular...I think my feelings are hurt :LOL I worked really hard on them. Am I asking too much?

maybe if you start the bidding lower? As it is now, just with one starting bid the buyer pays $17 including shipping. That may be too high for some people for a MEOS

You sound like my husband! He always gets so upset when people don't bid on his items IMMEDIATELY! :LOL Give 'em some more time -- they still have six days to go. And perhaps lower the starting bid and/or shipping. I realize you're mailing from Canada, but I, personally, think five dollars is a bit much to pay for the shipping of one diaper.

Good luck!

you could always start low, have a reserve, and a buy it now price. That way you could garauntee getting the price you want.

just a heads up, but you can't post links to your stuff for sale here, it is considered spam, you will get a hand slapping from the mods so you might want to edit this

But on the other note, I don't know why they aren't selling, they look great to me!

Before I saw your link I tried searching and didn't come up with anything...maybe edit your title? motherease w/o the hyphen? or ME OS?

They are very colorful! Will have to tell a friend who is looking for some ME OS!

To be honest they are very pretty. However ME OS are supposed to be affordable diapers. $9 brand new, and the shipping is kinda high

Wow, they ARE beautiful . I think it is because they don't come up in a Motherease search. I was looking earlier today for Sandy's diapers and colored like that would be awesome, but your gorgeous diapers never showed up.
I have yet to use the OS Motherease diaper on dd so I don't know whether I like them, otherwise I would bid right now

Gak! That was supposed to be $5 cad. I lowered it. $5 USD is too high. Sigh. I put the auction in usd, and forgot about the shipping.

I'm glad I asked.

P.S. I removed the link.

I have them in my watch list, I love the blue camo but I don't have any paypal right now and I generally don't bid till the last few minutes. I'm trying to sell some stuff on ebay to make some money for my paypal account. Pray that it will sell so I can buy at least one. Dd is starting to potty train so if I buy her any more dipes they need to be OS so they can be used on the next baby too.

But all of those include the snap in liner which would cost almost $11.00 brand new...so I think they are priced right. I would snap them up if I didn't dislike front snapping diaps so much LOL!!

You don't come up on a search for cloth diapers. You might want to add that to your title so your auctions will come up in the broader search.

You could also jazz up your auction description. All you really need to do is maybe make the text a little bigger and change the font or color.

Good Luck!
