Celebrating the strange, awkward poses and generally misguided choices people make to sell clothes on ebay.

Ebony And Ivory

I love this post-modern statment on the ambiguity of racial identities as it relates to the sexualization of women. Sorry? What's that now? This is just a ho who wants it in the butt? My bad.

There Oughta Be A Law

Here's my tip for the day: If there's more than one wrinkle above your elbow when you hold your arm straight, and you have started describing your arms as 'crepe-y,' do not pose sexy. Otherwise, it looks like with a touch of dementia you've wandered into someone's campground and are about to go to the bathroom on the picnic table.

No Iron(y) Jacket

Quick, someone take a picture! We've caught a hipster having a non-ironic moment where he can't find the button.

Wind Beneath My Wings

One of my absolute favorite AEM poses is The Avian. From fledgling chick to full on raptor, The Avian offers something to do with your arms, a little bit of grace, and demos any kind of full sleeve nicely. It's amateur to the core, and I love these ladies.

Do I Have One Of These?

Love that I can see the detail of the lace, thanks for that. But on what part of my body do I wear it?

I'm In The Dark

So, the lamppost factory manager is trying to make a little extra money on the side selling women's clothes? And how is it there are a million lampposts and I still can't see her dress? I don't understand, and I've never seen anything like this!

UPDATE: This is an art installation at LA County Museum of Art (sans model). Who says you don't learn nothin' from Amateur Ebay Models? Thanks Elle!

Tickled Pink

Oh, this one made my day. Now, it's advertised as being for a drag queen. If this is indeed a dude, that is one impressive tuck job. Sorry men who are reading this, I know about now you want to pluck your eyes out.

Calling Sally Struthers

For just the price of a cup of coffee a day, you can help feed, clothe, and house an amateur ebay model for an entire year.

A Pair Of Successes!

Well gosh darnit I admire the spirit of entrepreneurship. We met this lovely lady, a few months ago, when she started selling her exes stuff on ebay to get back at him.
I can't say I believed her then, thinking it just a ploy to sell stuff. But please visit her site as it's all changed! I'm a believer! She's got the double win of sufficiently 'pissing of her ex' as well as started a successful business on ebay!

Don't you just love a happy ending?

Happiness Is A Glow Gun

These are UV Gun Holsters. Apparently the what - phasers - are sold separately? And apparently you wear them with your underwear. And apparently you need this because you live in a generic, soul crushing dwelling of wall to wall to wall to wall beige.

Spice Girl

I doubt that this old gal realizes that trying to figure out what's on that back shelf is waaay more intriguing than the hat she's selling. I just love how people let you into their lives without being aware of it! Wait, that sounds creepy. I can live with that.

Blue Steel

This AEM demonstrates how matching your eyeshadow to your outfit to your dreamcatcher really makes your crazy pop.

Thanks, Nina, for this awesome submission!


Think this poor AEM needs to eat his spinach given how hard he has to work to pull on those gloves! Is this supposed to be sexy?

It's All Good

Nice to know there's also some chillaxed happy AEMs out there. Possibly there's some irony from the bear wearing guy but I'm ignoring it.


Look at this poor sad AEM! Sitting out there in the garden thinking, no one will buy his shirt.

Sorry, What Is Your Career Then?

At first I thought she was some kind of dancer, but no. And now that I get she's a lady wrestler, I love that her items are 'lightly worn' despite being slammed against a mat over and over again. Totally weird all the way around.

I Beg To Differ

I'm thinking that where this used g-string lies is rather public and has been quite trespssed.

Unnecessary Roughness!

Meet the new referee for the gay pride football league.

We So Excited

It's Friday, Friday. I love this sweet, cute Rebecca Black lookalike. I also love the real sweet, cute Rebecca Black. And bought the song and can listen to most of it when it comes up on my ipod. May both girls hang on to their sweetness and innocence for as long as they can!

Monster Deal

Frankenstein's monster and a howling werewolf and a fancy dress and some kind of pennant thing and a houseplant. It's just, I love ebay.

Do You Have To Neuter Them?

Please, please, oh please, I want a mini person so badly. I'll take of him, I'll change the cage lining, I'll walk him, I promise.

And he can have his own pet mini giraffe

Footloose and Baby Free, Quite Possibly

Good lord, who encouraged this AEM with a bun in the oven to bust a move on slippery tile pool steps??

Marketer's Dream

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Okay at the same time go! Brand promise delivered. Wait that's not what you were going to say?

My New Favorite AEM

At first I thought I had simply found a hipster who is willing to smile. But upon further digging, it's the rarely found hipster who can be silly! Shocking!
