  1. I don’t know why someone would buy socks or shoes that are that used and spend that much on them. I kind of like the squirrel although it is a bit freaky looking x

  2. I’m so faciniated by the people who buy old socks. I’ve got so many odd socks. Maybe I should wear wear them and sell them haha!

  3. OMG I am shocked about the smelly old shoes! I have lots of old shoes in the loft. Perhaps I should get the them listed on eBay.

  4. Hahahaha, this made me laugh! Some of these are so weird. I mean whaat. Those shoes and socks, really?! Gross!

  5. oh wow that is really weird. I enjoyed this post. Thanks for writing it! Angela from Daysinbed

  6. Ughh the socks – gagging over that one! Mine are looking a bit worn out, maybe I should Ebay them?!

    I did sell 20 empty Lush pots for £14 including postage this week – quite pleased with that one! They can be traded in for £24 worth of fresh face masks, which is a great deal, but my skin is very sensitive to essential oils so I can’t use Lush skincare sadly!

  7. LOL, used socks. These items suddenly don’t make me so ashamed of having bought some very-much-used and old Barbie dolls with ugly, tangled hair and torn clothes online a few years ago. Granted, I’m blind so I didn’t see the pictures.

  8. Haha! Love this post! People do buy some very strange things. The used shoe / sock brigade are so odd, it’s amazing that there is a roaring trade in smelly old shoes on eBay!! x
