    I find some people don't research/shop around anymore. I see things on BSS pages and eBay all the time that really aren't that cheap, but people buy them! I was looking for a thermomix cookbook last year and looked on eBay hoping to score a cheapie. People were paying up to $100 for a book that was $35 in their store/from a consultant. People can be stupid. They just think those sites are cheap when they aren't always!

    Like the Nintendo Wii. Cash Converters sell them for $25 and people are posting them for around $80.

    A barbie keyboard still in packaging was for sale the other day and was snapped up instantly (I was a NIL person ). Then someone commented "good to see you're using it". I'm guessing she gave it to the seller. I sensed tone.

    ^^ Badly used is right if the kids have been in to it! Notice the pic doesn't show the inside either. Just chuck it out!

    Ummmmmmaaaahhhhhhhhhh. This is why I never on-sell gifts we get that I know we won't use/already have on the local page. Don't want people to get upset when they have been kind enough to get the kids a present!

    Friends of mine sold xmas gifts I gave her kids and the pile of second hand clothes I gave her for her daughter (she asked for them). I would rather have given the clothes to charity.

    Ouch. That's rude.

    Here's a question, I've just sorted all the clothes that don't fit my kids anymore. Would you want second hand kids jocks? My gut says no, but they are in good nick as he only wore them a few months before we went up a size. Just seems a waste to chuck them. Not sure the charity shops can take undies??
