huh?
So I’m looking through some stuff on the FSOT sections and I keep finding things that people are selling that are more than the new cost? Seriously I found one that is almost $5 more here than you’d pay at wal-mart for the exact same thing? whats up with that? I keep seeing them lately and its not like they’re big demand items, seriously like I said you could just go to your local wal-mart and buy the exact thing cheaper and new? Just comes across as weird to find things like that, cause its not like anyone would pay that much for a used item if they can find it new cheaper?

Yes, I’ve seen this too.  Scandalous, indeed.  Hopefully people don’t get taken.  I hate to see this because people are always trying to be so helpful to other moms that are selling.  It’s too bad when you buy something for $12 and find it at Walmart for only $7, not on sale. And yes, shipping costs money, but you shouldn’t be recouping the original price in addition to the shipping for the item.  Selling used items for more than new is tacky.  People should really be calling out the people doing this. Is it appropriate? Probably not, but I’m sick of seeing used stuff being sold for way more than they would be sold for new.

    i haven’t seen this around but before i post something fs i always google it and find the retail price before i put it up w/ a price. i just sold something that actually COST me money to ship b’/c i didn’t want to price it higher than wal mart. gotta do what you gotta.

    On another diaper site someone was selling USED proraps covers for $11 apiece PLUS shipping. I posted a reply saying that these covers are like $6.75 new w/ free shipping on some sites. She replied that only the disreputable sites sell them for that much. Oh yes.. Little Lions is such a bad company LOL. I just didn’t want some poor newbie totally getting robbed!

    It’s like the chick who was selling clearanced soap from Michaels that she bought at 50 cents a piece for $5.00 each on Hyena Cart and was claiming that she had made them. rofl

    Laura, is she still on HC? I thought I saw some familiar soaps this past week.

    i was buying my first dipes this week and noticed the same, but it seemed that it was more due to high shipping than scamming. you have to shop smart no matter what you are buying.
