A cautionary tale concerning ebay

Here’s another chance to sign up for my Chloe’s Closet Insiders mailing list! (Please do it, I promise to send you good deals…hint, hint, *nudge, *nudge) https://candidchloescloset.wufoo.com/forms/z1v9yejq1uwns3a/

Sorry to double-post again, but I just made a bank-account shattering discovery which was supremely disheartening. ebay is NOT a free service. It is not free even if you only sell your things under a personal account. I was not aware of this fact until I found an invoice for the past month in my inbox. Not cool ebay, not cool.

Maybe I’m the idiot who failed to read the fine print, but I was told ebay was free to use unless you used an exorbitant amount of pictures or you had a business account. A week ago, I was very excited to discover I had a long forgotten refund tucked away in my Paypal account. Now, all of that money is being funneled back into ebay.

Quick side-note about fashion, I hope the Boho trend isn’t going out. I’m afraid it is, and that definitely disappoints me. I love the hippy, gypsy looks we’ve been calling Boho. I was so sad when everyone made fun of Vanessa’s Boho looks on Gossip Girl. Granted, some of the things she wore were a little out there, but the screen writers improved upon what was given for Vanessa’s character in the books. I remember reading somewhere that Vanessa was supposed to be simultaneously bald and gothic looking. I’m not saying Vanessa’s style could hold a candle to that of Blair Waldorf or Serena van der Woodsen; I’m just saying she rocked some of her bright, bold ensembles. To quote the Gossip Girl intro, “You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl.”

To return to the primary point of this post, until my store starts producing more promising profits, farewell you sleazy ebay. I won’t really miss you. I have a much higher number of followers on my Facebook and Instagram store accounts anyways. *Hmph, raises nose in the air.
