Found 18th Oct 2012
These have been incredibly popular in previous years, fetching £100s on ebay so I thought I'd remind everyone early that they are in stock now and will be delivered in time for November 11th. Slightly more expensive than last year, but also a new, larger design. Save money on postage by buying one for all of your family in the one order!

These are not a special or reduced price, so in some people's eyes this is NOT a deal, but I never think it's a bad idea to raise awareness of items such as this.

Lots of jewellery items available to show support.

This beautiful Buckley-designed poppy brooch will make its wearer feel very proud. Larger than the original Buckley brooch, it is plated with 18 karat gold and inlaid with crystals. The brooch measures 40mm x 24mm and would be perfect as a gift or a treat for yourself. Attractively boxed.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, This item is sold officially through the Royal British Legion Poppyshop. Don't feed the ebay seller's pockets! Donate directly to the charity!



PLEASE; Don't buy these with the intention of profiteering on ebay. I have posted this item in the hope that more people may be able to support a very worthwhile charity and enjoy an item which was made unavailable last year by people led by greed.
Please just purchase for yourself and perhaps treat a friend/family member, not ebay.x

Get ready for the **** storm!

Just been on E-bay to have a look..........Some people will stoop so low to make money.

Heat added for the belief that people won't buy these to sell on.............misguided belief but belief all the same.

Great cause.<3

I did see yesterday in the Marks and spencer £15..x x

I spend a small fortune at the poppyshop all year around, lovely products, good quality and most importantly an excellent and worthy cause.

Actually, I think £18 per year is a bargain for what both past and present members of the services have provided.

Hot on principle.

I ordered two last year. I am STILL waiting for them to arrive.

ebay buyers here they come.....you have just started the rush for ebayers!


Shocking that people will make profit on these, the shop should just sell them at that price and make more for their worthy charity.

hot hot hot.

Ebay should be able to ban certain items from sale.

These and various other things such as wristbands etc. should not be allowed on ebay. destroys the point of wearing one. They are not for the highest bidder with the biggest wallet, they are for remembrance.

To remember those brave men and women who gave their lives to stand up for what they believed in.

Rant over (sorry, it winds me up)

Thank you for posting this!
I am posting from the company that designed the poppy. Over $3m to date has been raised in aid of the RBL.

...and yes, it's a constant battle to try and remove the ebay sellers.

I wouldn't worry too much about those selling these on Ebay, I won loads of auctions for these last year then forgot to pay

I certainly wasn't the only one out there doing this, so best of luck to those who are low enough to profiteer from such an important event

Hugh Jass!

I bought one for my husband's Gran last year and she was so happy with it.
Grandad was in the Royal Army Ordinance Corps, both were heavily involved in the British Legion. She died earlier this year at 94 and had the Legion banners at her funeral, it was such an important cause for both of them and indeed remains so for us and the rest of the family. Thanks for posting, LouiseVuitton

ordered mine on Tuesday and received it this morning, lovely brooch

Great post thank you. That is the ideal birthday present for my mother. My late father was in the Royal Air Force and the poppy appeal is/was close to their hearts.

Thanks bought 2 for my wife and mother.

Not even worth listing on ebay is it? Looks like you'll make £6-£7 profit..

They're already made for showing off, so why not profit.

Buy a normal poppy, but stick £20 in the pot. But then, how will anyone know how much you care?!

I would be careful about not paying for auctions that you have won. Ebay may cancel your account if you do it too often. Surely huk'ers can come up with some good ideas on how to stop this. Come on you lot, what can we do?

Bought one last year, but I believe it was £12.20 delivered back then.

£14.99 for a poppy and you think ebay sellers are taking the mick? Anyone with any class would just give the money straight to the charity without having the poserish indignity of wearing the bling.

They ban lots of items. Perfectly legal ones too, like electronic cigarettes.

But just think of the headlines:

Cold. This is a deals site, not a charity site.

Cold. This is a deals site, not a charity site.

This thread shows the difference between liberals and conservatives. Liberals think the profiteering is evil and demand something be done to stop it, while conservatives think it's great, more poppies get sold by the charity (and they could even raise their price again), everyone wins and no one gets hurt, so why not? As usual, the liberal solutions all involve an unintended consequence (in this case a reduction in the demand for poppies, hitting the charity's sales) and yet another restriction on people's freedom. But why not do something counterproductive as long as it helps your conscience?

That is a bit harsh.

I would say thanks for passing on the word. I had never heard of the Poppy Shop and now i have and have ordered a t shirt. So well done.

If there are only a finite number of these poppys produced and they sell out every year then the charity will make the same money if they are resold or not. What the charity should do is increase the price to a level where they just sell out or increase the production. The only people who benefit from selling these on eBay are the resellers and eBay themselves. Hopefully the british legion have made enough of these this year to meet demand so the resellers end up making a loss after they pay postage and eBay fees.

So if someone bought one, listed it on ebay with 100% going to the RBL would that be evil?

Actually, the demand from ebay resellers probably increases the number sold, and I bet they are making more this year than last, and at a higher price, partly because of the secondary market demand.



They certainly are being given an opportunity to increase their sales.



Plus customers who see them on eBay and were otherwise unaware of them. But the eBay demand feeds into the demand for the original sellers- you can't say they get no benefit from that additional demand. All of commerce is built on buying at one price and selling at another. You take part in this everyday, as a customer at least.



Why would that be something you would hope for? So that next year the ebay resellers don't buy any and the British Legion is left with lots of unsold brooches? What harm does it do you when others prosper from their own initiative?

Huh? why isn't this a deal? Pay money for goods. Deal.

I wouldnt personally sell these on ebay, too much effort tbh.

But I struggle to see the problem with others wishing to do so, as in buying them the ebay seller will have contributed the same £17.94 as anybody else, and is then passing this on to others at whatever price they value it at. The charity isn't making a loss.

I don't count myself as a poser for owning these poppies, there are numerous reasons why these poppies are better than the normal paper equivalents;

*The paper poppies 9 times out of 10 fall off and go soggy if it rains- these pins stay put with their safety clasp and last the weather(had mine all winter and no ill effect)
*The pretty nature of these pins can be worn on any outfit, whereas the large paper ones aren't always convenient-you may not like this argument but it's true.
*My pin is 2 years old and this year I have updated it. Originally it cost me £12. So spread over 2 years a cost of £6 a year. In all honesty for a paper poppy I would have only given £1 each year.
*The pretty nature of these pins draws the eye and starts conversations like 'that's pretty, where's it from?' which I know has then generated further revenue and raising awareness of the website when I tell those who ask. 20 of my colleagues last year went on to buy the pins- no one had ever asked me where the paper ones could be bought.

So you may call me a poser. But I wear my pin proudly, knowing that I am making a difference, with my silly, blingy poppy.

Same item and price on their eBay page folks, plus 45 nectar points:

Lets get something straight about the terrible Ebayers...
I try very hard every year to sell as many poppy's as I can having lost relatives in the first and second world wars.
The year before last I contacted the RBL with regards to buying 100 of the Buckley Poppies.
Without question they were very happy to supply them at £9.99 no questions asked,
I sold many of them to friends and family at £9.99, the remainder I listed on Ebay at 19.99 free delivery and donated the £10 profit to the RBL.
I would suggest that all of the gob **** infering that ALL Ebayers are scumbags, get off their fat Ar... and do something useful to raise money, and I dont mean stick a 50p in the collection tin.
I wonder how many of the gobbies are going to buy one.

Same price on eBay from this dodgy seller:
