Haunted Listing?

This guy has been sitting around forever. He is a Boyds Bear Teddy. My mother in law gave me a whole box of them. Unfortunately none of the bears have their original tags... and unfortunately I think my husband donated the whole box to Goodwill when we moved. So this guy is the only one left. I have listed him about 5 times in the last year. I usually get about 20 views in a 30 day period. And maybe 1 watcher. Last month I decided to list him again. He sat. Hardly any views, and no activity. About a week ago I relisted him again. I did not change anything in my listing:

118 Views? What is going on!? He has never even made it past 20 views!
Maybe the post really is haunted... or maybe he has a secret admirer. In any case, I just hope he sells so I can get him the heck out of here!


  1. That is weird that it got so many page views but no buyers. Meantime, I'm so desperate that I click on my own listings to increase the page view by one in the hopes that it will draw more interest. Ha! How pitiful is that?

  2. Clamco, I've done that myself :) Simply Selling Girl, I hope one of those views lands a sale :)

  3. I hate when that happens!

    Have you tried to change the keywords in your listing title? Changing the first picture that is displayed? Putting the item on sale?

    I use all three of those tactics to get items to move. If all else fails, I just auction it off at 99 cents with the price of shipping.

    I hope your "haunted item" sells haha.
