Jilted Bride Penned The World’s Most Depressing eBay Listing

Wedding dresses for sale on eBay are a dime a dozen. But this listing is different — this woman’s dress has a sob story to tell.

“Rejected wedding dress seeks lasting love and holy matrimony,” a UK listing that went up earlier this week reads. From there, the dress takes the reins and spins its sad, sad tale.

ebay

“I was supposed to be worn at City Hall in New York,” the size 8 ivory lace Diane von Furstenberg number says. “I was going to be the main attraction of a 60s wedding theme. I was going to be low-key, but elegant (I still am, for that matter).”

But then the owner and her Brooklyn-based hubby-to-be ended their relationship — and things began looking pretty dismal for the dress. “She kept me in the box. Because she couldn’t bear to look at me. I am a constant reminder to her of what could have been. So she wants to sell me.”

Oof, you’re killing us, little DVF dress.

According to Metro, the would-be-bride behind the listing is a 30-year-old British woman who wishes to remain unnamed. Read her ad in its holy-God-that’s-depressing entirety below:

I was supposed to be worn at City Hall in New York.

I was going to be the main attraction of a 60s wedding theme.

I was going to be low-key, but elegant (I still am, for that matter).

I was going to complement a 60s updo, nude courts and a bouquet of Lily of the Valley.

When my owner put on a dress just like me in Selfridges, she knew I was the one so she ordered me online and had me delivered to her husband-to-be in Brooklyn.

I’m not over the top, nor am I too dressed down, and she thought she could perhaps wear me to other occasions in the future.

She thought I was a dress she could look back on and smile, not cringe at fashion faux pas (she was right).

When I arrived, she kept me sealed in my box so nothing could ruin me.

Then they split up.

And she kept me in the box.

Because she couldn’t bear to look at me.

I am a constant reminder to her of what could have been.

So she wants to sell me.

Not necessarily to a bride, but to anyone looking to give me the home I deserve.

A home where I’ll get worn and admired and dry-cleaned (as and when necessary).

She can’t take me back to DVF because they no longer stock me.

I’m limited edition, if you like.

And the first time I have been taken out of my box is for these photos.

Because who’s going to buy a dress based on a picture of a box?

I can’t wait to be worn by you (and to see the back of my cardboard confines once and for all).

Love,
Zarita (in Ivory).

Answers to Every Question You’ve Ever Had About Buying and Selling Fashion on eBay

When it comes to scoring amazing deals on designer pieces or tracking down something specific you love (like that pair of heels you loved two years ago, but never actually made the move to buy), there’s nothing better than eBay. Even so, the amount of shoppers who are skeptical, confused, or downright scared of it is way too high, a big bummer since the fashion is major on the site.

“It’s grown to a $ 15 billion-a-year business,” Marcelle Parrish, head of fashion at eBay Marketplaces, told us, with shoes and bags proving to be especially popular (a pair of shoes sells every two seconds and a purse every five; on mobile, the numbers are seven and 11 seconds, respectively.) Within the North American market, there’s an average of 34 million listings per week across all fashion categories; the most popular women’s brands are Coach, Diane von Furstenberg, Missoni, and Valentino.

laptop-cup-of-coffee

For newbies nervous about winding up with a counterfeit, hear this: You have no reason to freak out. “Nothing is more important than the trust of our customers. When you buy or sell, we have your back,” eBay’s vice president of Global Trust, Laura Chambers, said. The site’s Money Back Guarantee is a well-seasoned system where shoppers register a complaint and eBay assists in a negotiation of sorts. The majority of sellers will do a return and refund, even if the option was marked as not available on the original listing, and if things get cantankerous, eBay steps in. Bottom line: You’ll never be stuck with the world’s worst fake and be out a few hundred bucks.

Tips and Tricks for Buying on eBay

1. Search Smartly
Start with the obvious keywords, and take advantage of filters available on the left-hand side of the page to wade through a large amount of matching listings. Griff Griffith, part of the community and education team at eBay, suggested further customizing the results you see by re-sorting by price once you have the general search right.

2. Pay Attention to the Little Clues
As diligent as the site tries to be, there are fakes posted. The easiest way to avoid buying something fake is to pay attention to any red flags. Is the price way too good to be true? Are pictures scant or badly out-of-focus? Is something just a little off, whether hardware wrapped in plastic or a logo that just doesn’t seem right? If you feel iffy about it, listen to your gut. Also to check: For shoes, is there a full range of sizes listed? If a seller in China has every single size of Isabel Marant ankle boots available, something’s fishy.

3. Check Out the Seller
EBay’s format includes feedback that gives you a snapshot of who you’re buying from. A brand-new account with no reviews or previous sales but a crazy cache of Chanel bags listed? It could be legit…or not. Click through to see the other items a seller has for sale for a good feel if you’re browsing the wares of a thirtysomething fashion fiend who’s cleaning out her closet or someone with a single fashion item that looks glaringly out of place alongside nonrelated items like tech gadgets or game consoles.

4. Do Your Homework
Before shopping a designer bag, some due diligence is in order. Know different brands’ hallmarks of authenticity (we covered Chanel, Balenciaga, Celine, and more); eBay has a robust section dedicated to educating shoppers too.

5. Now, Actually Start Bidding
Decide your top price before things get going to avoid being swept up in the excitement. You can enter your max bid off the bat, and eBay will automatically increase your offer as other shoppers join in. If you’re more into watching the shopping action as it unfolds, download the app and get your clicking finger ready (a lot of bids come in during the last five or 10 minutes of an auction). If you win, pay promptly.

Tips and Tricks for Selling on eBay

1.Write a Lengthy Description and Use Lots of Details
Imagine what you’d want as a shopper and give your prospective buyers that. The more information the better, as it’ll instill confidence in you and answer any questions they might think of. EBay has fields for all sort of characteristics, including specific measurements and materials; take advantage of those areas and answer.

2. Your Item Title Should Be Keyword-Rich
Shoppers are typically super specific, so beefing up your headline will help to get more potential buyers. Use the brand name (and make sure it’s spelled correctly), but also include the size, material, color, and a style name if relevant.

3. Take Good Pictures (and Lots of Them)
Pictures can make a huge difference whether your item sells, so add as many as you can to your listing. Take the general shot, but also zoom in on hardware, embellishments, and any tears, scratches, or discolored areas. Consider angles that will also reveal something additional about whatever you’re selling, whether it’s hanging it from a doorknob or adding a common item in for size relevance (think a dollar bill, a water bottle, etc).

4. Start Your Listing on These Days
Per eBay, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are the best days to post items. (We’ve already heard that Tuesday is also the best day to shop online).

5. Be Realistic About Pricing
Setting your item at a too-high price is a sure way to never sell it. Consider how much you paid for it and what similar items are being sold for. Certain designer items will hold their value really well (a lot of designer handbags, jewelry), while other pieces decrease drastically as soon as you remove the tags.

6. Consider Offering Free Shipping
Plenty of serious sellers we’ve chatted with have encouraged offering the incentive. “Shipping items fast and free is one of the keys to being a successful seller on eBay,” Linda Lightman, CEO of top eBay shop Linda’s Stuff offered as a suggestion. When you purchase and print potage through eBay’s portal, you’ll also save on the prices the local post office would charge you (you can simply tape the label to your package).

This Is The Juiciest eBay Listing You’ll Ever Read

In the market for slightly used lingerie purchased originally by a middle-aged married man for a 25-year-old he wanted to sleep with? How weird, you just missed that sale on eBay!

In a recent 500-word eBay listing, mom of three Sandra von Riekhoff offered up quite the backstory for the purple Agent Provocateur corset she was selling: The lingerie was purchased 15 years ago by a 40-year-old married man who wanted to make her his mistress.

“I have only worn it while drunk. It looks ridiculous otherwise,” von Riekhoff wrote in the ad. “Try standing with it on, flat foot in broad daylight. It appears desperate.”

Why unload such a gem after all this time? Outside of feeling guilty over taking it to begin with, von Riekhoff told the Huffington Post the teddy was simply not worth keeping around anymore.

“In this age of waste not, want not — and as an almost 40-year-old old mother of three — the lingerie was gathering dust,” she said.

Read the listing in all its glory below.

The corset ending up selling for 17 pounds (roughly $ 25 U.S.). Von Riekhoff said she wishes the buyer all the best.

“I hope she or he enjoys it while they can. Time is ticking!” she told The Huffington Post.

And if you’re bummed you missed the sale, don’t fret — there’s more where it came from. Von Riekhoff is now auctioning off a vintage Hérmes scarf the married man bought for her. (The receipt for the scarf was what tipped the wife off about her husband’s shady behavior.) All proceeds from the scarf will go to Sal’s Shoes, a charitable organization that collects and redistributes outgrown children’s shoes to kids in need.

Pee-wee Herman’s Bike From ‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure’ Sells For $36,600 On eBay

Pee-wee’s bike fetched some big bucks on eBay Thursday.

The shiny red and white bicycle used by Pee-wee Herman in “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” sold for $ 36,600, or more than three times the $ 10,000 reward offered for the return of the bike in the 1985 film.

(It should be noted that Pee-wee had no intention of paying the reward since “whoever returns the bike is obviously the person who stole it — so they don’t deserve any reward.”)

That’s also more than three times the $ 10,000 the seller paid for it back in 2010.

On the other hand, Pee-wee set a much higher price for the bike in the film:

The seller says in the listing that he needs to ditch the bike “because my family is getting larger.”

The only downside is that the bike doesn’t exactly look like it did in the film at the moment. It’s in pieces.

So basically, some assembly required.
