I have a bad case of it.  Watcheritis is what happens when you have a great thing up with lots of watchers who never buy it.  I actually had many things that were infected with this terrible disorder, so I went a little crazy this morning and I ended everything and did sell similar. 

Extreme?  Perhaps.

However, ending 135 things (I did not end fairly recent stuff) only cost me about $20.00 and I figure if one of those things sell, I'll be even.  I also jusitified this in my head by figuring that I'll have to change my return policy to 14 days instead of 7 soon, anyway, so let's just get it out of the way now.

I went thrifting today and Thursday afternoon and picked up some pretty good stuff.

These Nine West shoes are real stunners.  And they're my size!  About four years ago, you would have had to pry them off my cold, dead feet, but priorities and tastes change and now I couldn't imagine wearing them for any length of time.   They retail for $87.00 and these are in very good shape, so I'm asking $34.99.  Paid $4.50

I've had my eye on this shirt at our local Goodwill for a while now (and no one else has bought it, so maybe that's a bad thing).  It's a size XL and has Scooby and other characters coming out of the pocket.  This week, it was the 1/2 off color so I figured I'd go for it.  I have it up for $24.99 and it's already got a watcher.  Paid $2.25

You know, I used to be apprehensive of paying the full Goodwill price for Polo shirts, which is $4.75.  Today, however, since none of them were the 1/2 off color, I figured "what the hell".  I mean, I will gladly pay $4.75 for a sure thing.  I have this one listed for $24.99.  It's 16x32.

Just listed this one today as well and it already sold for $28.99.  See what I mean about a sure thing?

Well, that's what I've got for today.  Hopefully my extreme measures have cured my Watcheritis!


  1. A lot of those watchers are fictitious and software generated. I have had items on my watch list that I clicked on once. Then they ended up on my watch list. So annoying. Every time I logged on, there it was - staring at me.

  2. I didn't know that! That's awful!

  3. The shoes are great! Hope they sell quickly!

  4. I don't think software is adding items to watch lists, but once you look at something, it will pop up in the first screen, saying recently viewed.

    It is so annoying when you have watchers and no bids, day after day! I say to my self "Just hit the buy it now dangit! What is wrong with you people!"

  5. Ooooh, CindyLou, I bet you're right! It just stays on the recently viewed...makes sense. I have 5 watchers on a couple different things and I wish I could just send them a note begging them to buy the stupid thing.
