    What a great way to start the weekend. No, I haven't won the lottery but the sale of all of my fat clothes has ended on ebay today and I've made more than £500!

    Evening dresses, swimming costumes, jeans, jumpers, jackets, even bras...they've all sold! I'm so pleased. Now I have the money to go and buy new, super sexy slim clothes rather than living in hand-me-downs!

    If you've got the the stage where you want to get rid of clothes I'd recommend doing it this way. I've done car boot sales before but never made this much. It seems my very expensive bras from Rigby and Pellar generated the most interest and sold for almost as much as I bought them for in the first place. And they're second hand now!

    With the credit crunch it looks like this is probably how people want to buy clothes so if you need any help doing it just let me know. It's really easy!

    Right....now should I go to the Trafford Centre this afternoon or not? lol :p

    Excellent! I dipped a toe in the 'selling fat clothes' water last week and got £20 for my old coat. Have sooo much stuff to list, going to do it bit by bit. I did the Trafford Centre on Sunday :)

    it is a bit of a pain listing it all and the poor woman at the post office nearly fainted when I took in all my parcels today but I'm off shopping tomorrow after work. Selfridges here I come!!

    Well done you [​IMG]
    Every thing I own is at least 2 sizes too small for me. So when I finally lose the weight I'll be able to actually wear them. But I'm afraid I won't be making any money on ebay which is a sham coz I would love to make some money so that I could buy some new cloths [​IMG]

    I bought an amazing dress for my friends 21st. I've only worn it once. But I love it and I had all intention of selling it on Ebay! However, I was watching that Twiggys Frock Swap thingy last night and I have decided that I will keep that dress and I will get it altered to fit me next Spring for my friends wedding. It'll be interesting to see the photos of me in the big version and the little version. Everything else can go on Ebay though!!!
