You may have heard of this phenomenon over the past few years. The Ugly Christmas Sweater. Have a Christmas party and invite guests - but everyone must wear an ugly Christmas or holiday sweater. The winner gets a prize. Some of these parties are done as charity benefits, held at a public location, to raise money for needy families during the holidays. As described in the video above by Clinton Kelly of "What Not to Wear," these sweaters are "nauseatingly festive" and "disturbing."
The kicker here is that these hideous sweaters, that you can find in thrift stores for less than $5, are selling for anywhere between $10 and $100. As Bill Geist says in the video, "America seems to have vast reserves of these in thrift stores."
Sounds like we need to have our own virtual contest! Head on over to my eBay Seller's Facebook group to participate. Here is how it will work:
To be eligible, sweaters must be listed before December 1.
The sweater selling for the highest price wins!
You can post links to your ugly sweaters on the Ugly Sweater Contest thread in the group if you like.
(We can all use a daily laugh during the stressful holiday selling season!)
Winner will be announced on December 15 and will receive their $50 Amazon gift card via mail.
Feel free to repost this contest anywhere - your Facebook page, Twitter, or your own blog. Let's have some fun with ugly sweaters!
Congratulations to Suzanne C and Jessy for winning the reusable sandwich bag giveaway last month.
