I Think I'd Better Avoid Ebay


I tried EBay for the first time this weekend. I bought a basket that no one else wanted, and suffered a heartbreaking loss of a bag in the last ten seconds.
Later, I bid on this dough bowl in the last two minutes, just for the hell of it, expecting I'd be outbid in seconds.
I'm now the proud owner of a wooden dough bowl.
Now Peter keeps referring to me as "the junkie."

I don't have luck with ebay, so I don't even look anymore.

oh my god - I'm an ebay junkie. I've gotten a lot better, but I was really bad a few years back...I still have stuff tucked under my stairs in the boxes they came in because I was having a 'what was I thinking' moment.

I love ebay! I know how to play the waiting game and wait to bid on something at the last second! I even sell somethings on there from time to time.

That bowl is awesome!! Sorry about the bag.

I did that last minute bid thing for a set of books that I wanted! Hehe, I'm bad. I stay away from eBay too. The success of "the hunt" can be very addicting.

I can definitely see it could be very addictive.

I won't bid on stuff if I know I won't be at the computer in the final minutes to ward off last minute out-bids. I lost a pair of Frye boots by $1 because I was asleep when the bidding ended.

The Other Side of the Bridge is waiting for me at the library! I can't wait!

The great thing is...sometimes YOU can relist the item, and make a profit!

Ebay can be great..But beware of buyers who don't send your stuff!
