Hey, long time no see!  Good to see you here.  Fussy!?!?....No, I wouldn't say fussy.  You have been around long enough to know that catch phrases seem to go through eBay like grease through a duck.  Unfortunately, it has been my experiense that if you use those catch phrases when searching the results are generally the same.  :womanwink: :womanlol:

I speak my mind ... because it hurts to bite my tongue!

I completely agree with the overuse of those terms.  My pet peeve is the use of the word, "vintage," and then the auction states the item is brand new and there are 10 more available.  Although they can't list in that category, use of that word in the subject line, whether it's followed by "style," basically throws them into the vintage category for people like me who search using "vintage" as a key word.

Life is a beautiful struggle.

Yup,..this gets my goat as well,...the over-use of those terms. I know which sellers continually do this and I hit the back button when I see their name. They will use Haute Couture Runway in every single title,...no matter how puny the item is.

The primary offender has been using this tired old line for about 4 years running now in ALL her descriptions; "The items listed this week were all pulled for a Vogue shoot in Europe that maybe featured in issues of American or International Vogue."

I am thinking that I should get a coat hanger and wire Christmas ornaments to it and call it Haute Couture Runway. I am betting by the looks of it, that  a certain element of women that buy this  monstrosity-styled jewelry would bid on it.

I just put that in as a search term and got a chuckle.  I didn't know Avon was "Haute Couture Runway."  LOL!
