I think that one was from their stocking a few weeks ago. don't use wool but sooo pretty I'd have bought it & learned. if I actually managed to get an fcb or lc I'd never sell it.

ustamom, can't know for sure, but I'm guessing that's what she did. maybe she did really want it & then changed her mind after under financial pressure, though...

I remember the thread when the Mama bought this. I believe that was re-stocked?
She was very excited to have it.

But as I recall, there was a second thread. It was removed.

I coveted that cover, but wasn't quick enough. Oh, well . It's gorgeous, though.

I remember the thread where she was saying she bought it but didn't know how to store it since she wouldn't be using it for a very long time. She was a hyena-virgin I believe before she bought it.

Ok That is my soaker. I listed it on ebay because I need the money.
I was very very excited that I had gotten it. By some odd means I had happened to score it. I still dont know how I got it but i did. Yes there was a thread that was deleted. It was a big misunderstanding between the fluffy mamma and myself. Its fine now and I hold no hard feelings.

The only reason I am selling this is because I need the money. i did not stalk nor do I stalk. I just happen to open the thread I spy clicked on the link and it was sitting there. So I grabbed it. After getting it and thinking about it I realized $35 could be used more wisely. After all I cant use it right now. I need the money more than I need the diaper. And no I didnt stalk to to score so I could buy furniture. I need the money to buy stuff for my sons new room and various other things. Let alone money to buy groceries. Money will be so tight that we will only have about $60 - $100 for groceries a month. Now if you look at all my auctions they all say the same thing. It was easier to say furnish the house than to go through all the details of why I need the money. I could have offered it to other mammas here that I know wanted it. But I felt I should give every one a fair chance. Thus also starting it out at 99 cents in hopes I get what I paid for it. I stand a chance to lose money here. But any little I get is better than nothing at all.

I hope this explanation clears some things up. Its a beautiful cover and breaks my heart to have to part with it. But family comes first.

Those that are saying they coveted it but how disappointing they didnt get it. Heres your chance. Go ahead whats holding you back? I am not nor was I trying to be selfish in any way. I happen to score it by pure luck. Thats that

No hard feelings??????

Unwashed and unworn, right?

FM Policy:

Refunds & Returns

Items can be returned within 20 days from the date of purchase if in unwashed and unworn condition. You will be issued a full refund of the purchase price minus shipping charges.


You return it, they refund your money, it gets restocked, and all the disappointed mamas have another shot.

Mama..it's doubtful you'll lose money putting an FCB wool cover on ebay.... :LOL

Hope your financial situation gets better soon and you get what you need out of the diapers your are selling.

Wouldnt rules 1 and or 7 apply here???

I have no opinion about her ebay listing but I know if ya'll were talking about me right now it would make me feel very unwelcome and not want to come back.
Just my 2 cents

Would this even be an issue if it was not an Hyena item comon people who cares it is just a diaper cover and she can do with it as she pleases I dont think she has to explain herself to anyone because it is none of our busniess.

I agree that she should be able to return it if she wants, or try to make a few bucks on ebay with it.

You return it, they refund your money, it gets restocked, and all the disappointed mamas have another shot.

Gee Im sorry I didnt realize that If I didnt want it I would have to return it. I debated and debated about putting this on ebay My dh and I talked about it and decided that was the best decision. I had a feeling it might turn into this but was hoping we were all mature enough to handle it. I felt that it was best to do it this way.
Also I am not a hyena therefore do not stalk places. This is a one time deal. I had my chance to keep this item. I wanted to keep it but decided I needed the money more. When you think about it $35 is half of what I have for groceries for each month once we move. What would you do in my situation send it back and lose shipping or put it on ebay and hope that it goes for what you paid if not a little bit more.
I asked a couple of times how to take care of this soaker I got one response. One!!! I have no idea how to care for such and item so between that the money, I had to let it go.
If your upset about it fine. Im not gonna sit here and worry about it. I need the money and that is that. I have seen mammas here in the past list stuff on ebay hyena stuff and they dont get flamed for it. They get encouraged they people bid high on it. I think the problem is a non hyena winning a hyena item and then selling it cause I need the money. Maybe thats the issue. Either way, I cant justify spending that kind of money on a soaker not now that I know the full extent of our financial situation.

Don't sweat it, mama! Me expressing disappointment 'cause I didn't get the cover at the FM stocking doesn't equal thinking that you don't have the right to do with it whatever you want. I don't know about the hyena versus non-hyena stuff, but I do think it's a bummer that you only got one response when you asked about cover care. Good luck!
