I logged on to ebay this afternoon and was greeted with some new items in my "like" list. I have men's Hawaiian shirts listed as something that I want to see new listings.

This listing popped up here

Now, I am guilty of some pretty sloppy pictures. Let's face it all of us are. But I try to go back and correct them or just put the item aside and take better pictures. But if you can't at least try to get the wrinkles out then just don't do clothes. I hate ironing, and yet my ironing board is up all the time in my sewing room. Why? Because if I ever took it down I would stop ironing all together. For photos I picked up a steamer for getting the wrinkles out. Works like a charm and was only $5 at a yard sale this spring. Kinda like this but an older Conair. I started out with a hand held unit. That got old fast. Didn't hold enough water.

Here is one, freshly steamed, waiting in the photo do-over pile

Lovely red and green shawl/wrap, right? Wrong!!! It is really deep red and brown. Yep, brown not green.
It was late at night and it was one I let slide. And besides, my camera hates me. Yep, it really does. It just can't seem to "see" the right color.

What can I say? Happens to the best and worst of us.

So, what do you see on your favorites list when you log on to ebay? Love it? or Leave it?


  1. Oh my gosh. I just looked at the posting you shared of that shirt, and I nearly spit out my coffee. It's amazing what some people will post and expect it to sell. . .

  2. While the wrinkles are bad I think what is worse is the shot taken in front of a white backdrop but you can see the junk all around. Don't they know about picture editing? Geeze Lousie and they wonder why they can't sell anything on ebay!!
