ü NO PICKUP from my home available (please do not ask for this option as I do not allow it & you will be disappointed when I say no).  This is for privacy reasons and because I work long & varied hours.  If you cannot accept these terms then please do not bid on the item.


ü  eBay Parcels (Click & Send): Where possible I use the eBay click & send system from Australia Post.  I am happy if you want to pay the extra $1.00 for a signature (I am not sure if this option is still available & the click & send site is currently down)

For further details please refer to the current Australian Post Guide


ü  International Postage: I am only sending things via Registered Padded Pre-Paid Post Packs to International areas.  For items I am happy to calculate the cost of postage & the packs


ü  Packing Material: All items are wrapped in plastic, tissue paper or bubble wrap as may be required.  When I sell cosmetics or fragile items the cost is higher as I use a lot of bubble wrap but I only charge you for the cost of 1 sheet but I use much more than that.

o   Packing Material cost for clothing, books, non-fragile items:

§   $0.10 is added for plastic bags, tissue paper, packing tape or whatever I use

o   Packing Material cost for makeup, skincare & fragile items:

§   $1.50 is added for: bubble wrap (even though I use more than this), packing tape, cling wrap & plastic bags (self-seal & other types).

§  For item requiring less bubble wrap than makeup & skincare (e.g. shoes) then I charge only $1.00 for packing material (even though I use more)

§  Bubble wrap is expensive usually (i.e. $3.30 for a 30cm x 3m piece)

§  Usually items are wrapped in individual bags, especially if they have liquid or cream contents, to prevent contaminating other items should they break and I often also wrap then in cling wrap.


ü  When I used my own bag I just charge $1/bag, this is because I have forgotten exactly what I paid for them all and I know it was more than this


ü  I recommend the use of Express Post satchels or eBay e-parcels and so I only offer these forms of postage.  This provides a tracking number (which regular satchels do not provide).  I try to post all these items at the post office so that I have a record of the receipt & you can track them.


ü   If items are lost or damaged by Australia Post I cannot replace them, if you are worried about this I am happy to arrange insurance or send it by registered post.


ü  Buyers pay postage costs.

ü  eBay Post Packs: I used eBay post packs where available. 

o   For express postage I use the prepaid packs but I do try and use other packaging if the is less than 500g as I have a few bags to use up.

ü  INTERNATIONAL postage PLEASE email me with your Country’s Name and I will get back to you with an accurate postage price to your particular Country.  The new Australia Post guide for parcels is a bit confusing so I will need to check the cost.  I only send items as tracked parcels. Thanks.



ü  Please pay promptly so that I can get it to you in time for Christmas Delivery for items that I have listed December

ü  I am happy to organise express postage

ü  I will consider adding the “buy-it-now” option if you want the item ASAP (if you need it for a party or Christmas gift.

ü  I am also selling items over the next 2 months that would be appropriate for Kris Kringle



ü  I have it listed my sales as “no returns” as I do not want items returned for “change of mind”

ü  I put a lot of work into listing everything I can about the item and I am happy to measure extra things to help you decide

o   As I only list in bursts (& usually take time off work to do it) I do not have the time to relist etc.

ü  Also if I resell the item is  not fair to the next buyer if I am selling a new item and I cannot guarantee that it has not been used

ü  I do not do this to prevent having fair dealing with the buyer



ü  Payment is to be made within 3 Working Days from the end of auction. UNLESS otherwise arranged with me PRIOR to purchasing.

ü  AUSTRALIAN BUYERS: Several payment options are available, I prefer PAYPAL

ü  INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: can only make payment via PAYPAL

ü PLEASE DO NOT bid if you DO NOT intend to buy.

ü Payment is required 3 days after the close of bidding & I use the same time-frame to post things to you.


About Me:

         I am not an eBay reader, but someone who is trying to de-clutter and get rid of all the clothes that don’t fit, things I have never used and to start over, unfortunately every time I get rid of stuff I get more!

 You may wonder why I sell a lot of makeup kits- well I use a lot of skin care products and so does my Mum and we ONLY buy them when we get the free kits.  I only use certain products from certain companies and mostly the kits have nothing that I ever use in their free kits (sad for me but good for you as I can sell them).  I also often go to events where I get free samples of things too.  As I have sensitive skin & so does my Mum we cannot use any of these gifts!

         I hope you enjoy using the things that you buy from me!

         I have not sold for some time because of the event listed below which I found VERY distressing & it almost put me off listing ever again on eBay.  I feel it is only right that I give you some of the facts so that you can decide for yourself if you want to buy from me.

 My feedback rating: Unfortunately during the year I received a negative feedback rating from an eBayer,

o   this was added before we had even discussed resolving the issue. 

o   The problem was that she said the garment was of a very poor quality (which it was not, it was an impulse buy by my Mum & had only been tried it on),

o   The eBay buyer wanted to keep the garment & get a full refund (I was happy to give a refund once the garment was returned, even though she had left an awful feedback for me & was harassing me via email)

o   in the end I escalated it to a PayPal dispute as I wanted resolution, she was told by PayPal that to get the refund she needed to return the garment to me- she refused, and PayPal closed the case in my favour

o   I deal honestly with people and I am not trying to scam anyone by what I sell, if I think a garment is not up to standard I do not sell it.  For me eBay is a way to de-clutter

o   Thank you for reading this J
