I saw that listing too and thought someone must have more money than sense. By the way, as of this hour the bidding is up to $610.00. There is another onesie up for auction by that seller that was going for the same kind of money.
I would have to agree with you on that. When you look at the stats and see there have only been 3 bidders so far, and then you see that most all the bidding was done withing a minutes of each other. First majore bid was at 14:44:08 and final bid (at this hour) was at 14:52:32. Not even 10 minutes on a product that has over a day left to go, and yet we are going to bid like this? I wouldn’t be supprised to see these products pulled.
Cannot believe someone was that stupid enough to pay that much money for a onesie. They HAVE to be rich or this is a fake ad. Who knows? I am surprised by that… 600 bucks for a onesie. Even I would not pay that much money for something I don’t need.
Well, I don’t personally see someone setting a ceiling bid on something as simple as those outfits up to 600+ for starters. As far as the sellers goes, I doubt it was here as I have seen her outfits on Ebay for some time and they sell pretty quickly or at least do decent in bids. Doesn’t make any sense why she would bid them up like that cause no person in there sane mine would pay that much for one of those! From what I have heard she makes good quality stuff, but still……the elephant is only 5 bucks at Joann’s Fabrics and the rest of the fabric isn’t that much!
My money would be on the scheme Vicky detailed, also known as bid shilling; multiple items hitting exactly $610 at the last minute is highly suspicious. It’s really a deplorable way to do business - this article has a more detailed explanation of how the scheme is run (with an example to show how it double-milks the real highest bidder), never hurts to learn about these things.
I think we can all agree $610 isn’t a realistic price for such an item, but if it turns out the seller is jacking up prices using this dishonest scheme, I don’t think anyone would be wanting to buy from her in the first place.
If some one is just bidding on all of them to raise the prices, that’s stupid and mean. I contacted that seller back in August to have her make something for Gaby for our anniversary, and she had no problem doing it, the price wasn’t bad, and I actually got the item in time for our anniversary, unlike Gaby’s order from another site that we didn’t get until November (ordered in August). There’s was no indication by the other seller that it was going to take that long, either.
