    Hi guys,

    I've been looking at stuff on ebay recently and wanted some advice. I've never bought anything bigger than a pair of shoes on ebay......has anyone bought say, a crib, or a moses basket, or a changing unit?

    I want to buy new but can't afford all high street so was going to get a few things. Have found some good bargains but I'm shy of buying over ebay.

    Any advice?

    Thanks

    Aimee xx

    also you can find things for sale in your area and if costs are to high to deliever you can always collect the item,

    With moses baskets and cots i would personally get a new mattress but its up to you.

    I have bought so much off ebay eg baby clothes, i love it the baby has more clothes then i have and wont be livin in his room lool. Its exciting as well knowing your going to win something lol

    I love ebay for bargains! I got Lilys cot for 99p! Its a lovely big john lewis cot bed too! Just got a new mattress for it and its great!

    I begrudge paying silly money in shops when you can get great stuff on ebay for a fraction of the price :D

    Thanks girls....yeah new mattresses all around but I was thinking of buying new from ebay as it's always at least a little cheaper than the shops - even with the postage.

    Wow 99p for a cot! Now that's a bargain! lol

    Aimee-Lou; I enjoy ebay too. My only bit of advice is check else where too, and set yourself a limit as you can soon get to paying more than the items are worth if you don't do your homework. DHL d a collection service which is reasonably priced too if the seller will allow for you to do that. We've not been refused yet; OH got a ranger rover wheel from birmingham to us for £13. Only took 2 days. Can't winge..

    Happy Shopping!

    Another good website is "preloved"..
