ebay addiction!!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Is anyone else addicted to ebay ?? I certainly am. I have won 3 things in the past day or two. It's just so fun to search for stuff. So far I have won sewing patches (which I am going to use to make a blanket), a purple paisley jacket and a new scrub top (with kitties all over it!) for work.

And the searching continues........

I get addicted to it in spurts... usually when I have money. The last time I was on ebay I started updating my snowglobe collection... found some great ones and when they arrived, it felt like Christmas. Then I remembered I paid for them... and then I felt broke and had to make myself quit goin on ebay!

I do the same thing.. I will buy quite a few things and then have to stop myself for a while because I spend so much!!

I am now starting to sell things on ebay. Not to fund my addiction though!
We are selling all our old stuff that we no longer use and setting up a vacation fund!! I'm excited -- we are going to take a 2 week road trip sometime in May or June -- boy do I need it!

They should have an ebay anonymous. You can get really good deals on things. I bought Lolita Lempicka -- a perfume -- for half the price you would get it in a dept. store! (it was a christmas present to myself hehe)

My favorite thing to buy off Ebay is the Dooney & Bourke handbags. I bought one the other day that if I had bought it in the store I would have paid $285. I got it for $117 plus shipping. It was brand new with tags and authentic. Has that wonderful new Dooney smell too

I'm freakishly addicted to eBay. Lately, I've started selling pet stuff so it's turning into a small side business.

Ooh I bought that scent, a teeny sample size... it was a little bitty apple. I loved it for the bottle, the scent was too thick and heavy for me.

I used to love going on there and buying little samples of perfumes... great way for me to try them out on me and see if I like them enough to buy the regular size. I should do it again soon, I have yet to find my scent.

Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm an eBay addict
(I was going to do that too, Cathi )

I buy all sorts of stuff!! I frequent it a lot and watch so many items that I really can't afford - I call it research, to see what prices they go up to!!

It is certainly very addictive and when you pay through PayPal it doesn't really feel like you are paying!! It is also great to receive a package!!

I have a lot of good things to sell!
I buy things at Car Boot Sales planning to sell them - but then I get too attached to them and end up not wanting to sell them

I can honestly say that I spend and sale on Ebay. When I am in need of some extra cash flow I just list a few things. Most times the item salesd sometimes they don't but it is fun.

I kinda go in spurts also. I buy and sell a lot of my daughter's clothes on there. It's a wonderful place to get children's clothes because kids often outgrow stuff before they wear it out. So about every 6 months or so.....I'll get together a bunch of Nikki's things that she has outgrown and sell them on there. Then I turn around and spend that money on clothes for her in bigger sizes.

She's really into the namebrands....Limited Too, GAP, Abercrombie, etc...and if I bought all that stuff in the stores....I'd go broke. On Ebay, I can get a practically new pair of Limited Too jeans for about $8.00 as opposed to $40 in the store.

It's funny though......Nikki just about got addicted to Ebay because she loves looking for clothes on there. I had to make sure that I always signed out of Ebay because I was afraid she'd begin buying a bunch of stuff under my name! She's only 11.....but that kid is VERY smart and computer savvy! (well you all have seen her on here) LOL

Yes, I too am an eBay addict. I can go months without buying anything - but I have fun searching for stuff just about every day. I've bought and sold - selling is good, if you can find things that people want. My last little stint with selling - no one wanted my stuff. Guess I will have to find better stuff - can't wait for yard sales to start again!!!!!

I'm hopelessly addicted to eBay. You can find such neat things, people's cast-offs and antiques, and comparison shop for stuff like plumbing fixtures (which I've found is cheaper than buying in stores). In almost every case, the shipping is fast & not that expensive. I have only sold twice on eBay, but both were good experiences.

I'm actually waiting on a shipment from an auction I won last week, and waiting on 3 auctions to end. I'm addicted simply because you can find the stuff on eBay that ya can't find in stores!

My name is Colleen...and I am powerless over e-Bay!
My fiancee is addicted,too, thanks to me! I have 7 e-bay links on my favorites. I hate waiting & am jonesing for something to buy! I'm not a big spender, & like specialty stuff, like Steelers stuff, or a certain brand of jeans, or those obnoxious art-deco ashtrays. I'll wait till the last 5 minutes & swoop down with my bid! Gads, am I needing a life, or what?
+ I love to get stuff in the mail!!

I don't buy unless I find a pretty good deal, but I constantly browse. I got a really nice watch earlier this month!

Another eBay addict here. I use it for buying my scrapbooking stuff, as it saves me a load of moolah!

Yard sales are lots of fun too. My mom, her friend and I like to go out on weekends and hit a bunch of them in one day.

My favorite thing besides ebay is a place (for all you NJ people out there) called Columbus Farmers Market in Columbus, NJ. It's an indoor/outdoor flea market. They have both new and used items as well as yummy fruits and veggies.

If you are anywhere near the area you should definitely check it out when it starts to get warmer.

Oh oh! We are going to have to divde the turf up. Ever go to any autctions? I love auctions, but you can get a few bad ones, before you find the great auctioneers - I just haven't had the patience to do the searching.

I always find bisque to paint on Ebay... I love it but it is easy to go overboard!
post #27 of 29
I love Ebay but I am mad that they raised the seller fees.
post #28 of 29
I like e-Bay and thrift stores. E-Bay has more variety, but thrift stores are usually cheaper (at least where I live.)

I bookmarked Ebay to put in my favorites list because I wanna look at the plus- sized womens clothing
