I might tell, if you're not my size.
Not usually the case. For one, many sellers on eBay are just trying to get rid of stuff they don't want anymore, or are reselling things they purchased at estate sales and thrift stores, so they don't have to charge a lot--not to mention a lack of overhead. Also, most buyers on eBay are looking for a deal (that's why they're on eBay, after all), and the sellers know that, so they're not going to get by with selling stuff for too much above a decent second-hand price.Yes. A $700 suit for $50 makes me think something must be wrong with it, even considering it is used.
If you can find stuff out of season, that is. Most sellers realize that people aren't looking to load up on sweaters in July, so you generally don't start seeing them until it begins to cool off. And you're not going to find much in the way of madras this time of year. There are exceptions, of course, and you can generally get a good deal when you find those exceptions, but your choices are considerably limited by shopping eBay out of season.Also - even on ebay it pays to shop out of season. If you want a Burberry's overcoat, start looking well before fall.
