Stupid @#&! Chico's!

For those of you who have never browsed my ebay store...(and I assume that's most of my readers)...

I sell gently used women's clothes from the higher-end stores. I carry many labels, one of which is Chico's - a label aimed at middle-aged women, usually priced in the $70-$150 range per piece. (I usually charge $18-$30 per item) Chico's has a very popular line called Travelers - it's a knit blend that resists wrinkles and drapes rather well on the body.

Unfortunately, Travelers knit tends to look "thin" compared to standard knit items. If you bought it in the Chico's Store, the saleslady would tell you all the great reasons for it. When you buy it off ebay (and don't know Travelers very well)...to many people, it looks WORN.

So today, I'm issuing my second refund for "worn" Travelers. I have a return policy for just this reason...but it's only been used for these items.

Considering the demand for Chico's pieces in general has been declining...paired with THIS problem...I'm seriously considering NOT offering it anymore.

BTW - I personally won't wear Chico's. Too school-teacher looking to me!

I'm going to have to check out your eBay shop now, you've gotten me curious. :)

By the way, I keep meaning to tell you...the new photos of your jewelry look really wonderful. Great job!!

Thank you, really...I've been working on my jewelry pics a lot. Not quite to where I want them, but definitely better!

I, of course, have provided 2 different links to my ebay shop here. :-)
