So I tossed them on my to-be-listed shelf and forgot about them for 3 months. Yesterday, they ended up in the day's listing bin. I pulled them out and laughed again. I did a search for them and saw that they have a 0% sell through rate (even in New condition), but I listed them anyway. Well guess what ... they sold after only a couple of hours. I suppose the size helped (they are 11 wide), but it's just more proof that ugly sells.
Check out these other ugly listings (obviously "ugly" is subjective, so I apologize if you like any of these):
Now of course, these are all top-name fashion designers, which makes them expensive AND ugly. But my point is ... don't pass over something just because it's ugly. It just might be ugly enough to sell well!
