    For all you ebayers...when buying from Ebay what has been your best bargain...what was it and how much? And for those who sell...what have you sold for a fantastic price?

    Iv started selling on ebay again after months and was just thinking about it xx

    Um, my best buys are usually books that i get for really cheap and then sell on. My best sales are primark things that have gone for ridiculous money. I usually buy stuff because it's fashionable but then end up admitting it just doesn't suit me so i sell it xx

    It had been used but was in great condition.

    There is a bit of a story behind it - it was listed as an auction with a buy it now. When I first spotted it there were no bids but whilst i slept on the idea of buying it someone put in a bid so the buy it now disappeared. As it was local I thought I'd chance my luck and email the seller asking if they would still let it go for their BIN price (naughty I know!) and they said yes! I collected and paid that day and Hannah has been loving it ever since!

    When I was in the hospital my friend lent me her fave book "The Meloncholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories" by Tim Burton, as we're both rabid fans. Her sister got her the book for her bday one year, and she LOVED it.

    Anyways, I somehow forgot about it in a plastic bag that had an apple in it, and found it a few months later while cleaning. Oops. The book was destroyed!!!! I looked it up on Chapters to find a new one and they wanted $200 FREAKING DOLLARS for this small little book! I guess it's out of print now and is considered a rare book.

    Thankfully I found a couple on Ebay for $15, with $5 shipping. Thank the heavens. Ebay totally saved my butt on that one!

    My latest eBay bargain is this for £6.50:

    https://mamasandpapas.scene7.com/is/image/mamasandpapas/6449792?$large_img$

    Usually costs £70 on the Mams and Papas website (on sale just now at £35 but still....)


    Collected it locally and it is in perfect condition, complete with storage bag. I'm really happy with it. Going to put it aside for Hannahs xmas.

    Awww ^ that is adorable! Bargain too!

    I haven't really sold much, but my best buy...recently probably has to be a hoodie. Saw one in New Look that I liked, but not that good quality and fairly expensive, looked on ebay and got a TopShop one, worth £20 for about £5! Awesomeness! I was really pleased. Most of the things I buy on ebay I'm happy with, even if I only bid on them for the sake of bidding! Lol!
