Anything from the seller "linda*s***stuff". How the heck this seller has 364,926 feedback on Ebay is amazing.
Take for instance this listing:
I guess the seller doesn't have an iron, lol.
Descriptions such as:
•Collar: Fold down pointed, notched collar and lapel
•Sleeve Type: Long Sleeves
•Print or Graphic(s): Striped
•Number of Pockets and Location: Two on lower front
•Lining: Lining on the front and sleeves
Classic, in a BAD, BAD way.
I've been on the lookout for a mannequin for a while now and this is one of the closest results (geographically) for my search:
Yeah I see shawl lapels and only like 1.5 pockets on the lower front.
THAT...is hilarious. Folks really need to click thru and look at all the pics.
I have e-thrifted and flipped multiple items from Linda's Stuff - always BINOBO items with their auto-accept feature set to a pretty low amount. I guess with over 163,000 active listings, things will slip under their radar. They are a consignor - no idea how they manage / stock / obtain that many items...they're also hooked up with Rue La La which features their higher-end handbags etc on occasion.
[ EDIT: sorry, I keep forgetting about multi-quote ]
All the listings claiming to be shell cordovan when clearly... It's all calf.
I ran into a problem over the weekend where I didn't look closely enough at a listing listed as a pair of shell cordovan saddle shoes. The next day I noticed my mistake and asked the seller to retract my bid; he would refuse and claimed the shoes were "most definitely shell." I guess he didn't check Google when I told him to... Luckily some other schmuck outbid me
Excellent thread idea Cap. Here's one that caught my eye the other day and still has me puzzled:
Almost bought an auction from her a few weeks ago to do this where she misspelled Brioni "Briary".
I think I posted about it in the thrift thread about a year ago but I stumbled upon an auction for AE brogues in which every hole had been painted sloppily with white-out. The seller was completely nonchalant about it too as if people did that to their shoes all the time.
Technically not my idea. I did an initial eBay Blooper post in the eBay Tips thread and chiron suggested a new thread for it.
LOL, not the only ones to make that label misinterpretation either, apparently.
I remember that post. Sometimes office boredom can have terrible results.
That's how I came across her originally - via typohound.com. Ferragamo tie on the cheap.
This will be purchased and used for nefarious purposes. There's no way it won't happen.
Naturally, Craigslist is a goldmine for questionable images...
