Her other listings appear to be disposing of unwanted lingerie - make of that what you will.
Like a used thong.

Nothing like used crotch floss.

And she is a size 14.

Big girl, eh?

cheesy

Pentax AF080C Ring Flash - or at least a bit of one

No prizes for guessing the missing bit - the flash head itself.
But not a clue about this fact in the description, which says :

The unit powers up but has not been fully tested on a camera.
Sounds like they never worked out why they couldn't do a full test.

I see that a lot, and I think it's just them being lazy in most cases. Maybe not this one, but in general.

Must admit, 'Scruffy' is not the first word that springs to mind . . .

"It does work". Damned with faint praise.
He says he will combine postage for multiple items - as if he has more like it

Maybe it's a typo that should've read "scuzzy."

Pentax camera with telephoto lens with extra bits | eBay

Presumably the washing up is not included - although the 'unused' equipment could use a thorough clean. Why is so much equipment these days being described as 'Opened - never used' ? Who buys something and never uses it ? The only item to which this statement could logically apply is a box of matches.

I contacted him, but he says that is all he has - no actual flash tube.

For something that was "never used", it has taken a heck of a beating. And why is there something scribbled on the front of the instruction manual? It's been used to write on, at least. I guess that 200 for a tired-looking ME-Super with its kit lens, a 3rd party F5.6 zoom and teleconverter, a crappy little flash unit, and a tripod that looks like it's been in a kendo bout, is someone's sense of humour. I felt seasick after looking at the pictures too.

Was he even aware that there should be a flash head? It's still for sale as it was.

See professionals using these all the time - so much easier than having to make decisions about those fiddly settings.


And also this :

A flexible tripod - camera shake guaranteed

Exposed APS Film

The seller says :

All the films have been found in various APS point and shoot cameras. I have no idea what images are on there
For 69.99 no less. Perhaps a buyer would hope to find some dirty pictures? Can APS even be developed any more?

He's trying to sell the old cameras in job-lots too, heaps of Kodak Instamatics for example. He does have some gems amongst the junk though.
