You're addicted to ebay... 'My name is Miss P and I have been addicted to ebay for the last 5 years', there I have said it. Ebay holds a fascination for me that I can't explain, I buy just about every thing on it and have found things that I never knew I needed. A Louis XIV mirror made only of coral and shells (sounds hideous but is beautiful), a vegetable cutter that can cut any hard vegetable up to 16 feet long in a single cut, an oil painting of a small boy fishing and catching a baby mermaid (perfect for the bathroom), an antique lace handkerchief which was used at the coronation of Queen Victoria, meat flavoured doggy toothpaste (pooch isn't keen on the mint variety available at the vet). The list goes on, sometimes I visit ebay with no desire to buy, but just challenge it to find things that I think simply can't be found, and yet by visiting all of the sites, .co.uk, .com, .fr, .it etc you can always find pretty much everything.
Just before Christmas I had a huge clear out and sold about 200 items on ebay, I am not very good at how it all works and have only just discovered that all of my sales, which in the main amounted to 99p an item, have generated enough money to keep me ebaying until today.
Another clear out is required to keep me in the black. The trouble is I have bought clothes for every eventuality, and however dated they may be, selling them is almost like letting go of a dream.
Ok so now in no particular order, this is a Vanessa Bruno top, it cost a lot, when I wore it pre weightloss, it looked nothing like this, I looked like the sugar plum fairy (who had eaten a lot of plums). I had never realised it was meant to be off the shoulder, but trying it on, I quite like it. Should I keep it?
Any opinions would be gratefully appreciated, please be harsh, these have been in a case for about 10 years so I won't be insulted!
I forgot these, the excuse for the first picture...
They are from an old Dolce e Gabanna collection, I put them on once, but was unable to do up the button (or the zip) and those that I love, laughed, very kindly, but they laughed, now they fit as they should and remind me of the above, but am I just dreaming?....
