Disappointments of the Week: A is for armpit

My Ebay disappointments are usually pretty painless, but I came across these 3 despairing articles of clothing in a 10 minute time period and practically needed CPR. The earnings could have been impressive, should have been in my top sells of the week, but I had to pass due to unfortunate armpit circumstances. Oh, the heartache.

This Lacoste Large Pink Shirt sells new for $88.00. I found it at Goodwill on 1/2 day for $3.00. What luck! What joy!

And then, like a slap in the face, I spot these ugly yellow sweat stains locked up and sealed in the armpits. The stains are subtle, but they're there alright. Any decent woman would pass on this shirt. Selling it on Ebay would result in negative feedback for sure. Tragedy.

I have a love affair with Eileen Fisher. Her items are so elegant for the everyday woman. This sweater sells new for well over $200.00. For $3.00 at Goodwill, I'm willing to take it home, wash it up and get it ready for listing.

I don't mind the work, I have a great fabric cleaner for just about any stain. But it doesn't work on holes. I swear this poor thing looks like its been dragged around like a child's baby blanket.

This lovely Tommy Bahama XL Women's shirt is something special. New, it sells for well over $100.00

But barely-there armpit stains break the deal once again. What horrible life-crushing deodorant does this type of damage? I want to know. It deserves to be punished.
