12 eBay finds to snap up now

I’ve been eBay obsessed lately, as I research plans for converting my living room into a tropical paradise. Along the way, I find lots of treasures, so here are some. Click on the text below each photo to get to the listing: Note, all links are affiliate links, which means I get a spiff if you end up buying anything on ebay once you enter via my link. All part of how I keep this blog boat afloat.

    No, please! For those of us seriously looking to buy stuff on ebay, this increases prices and competition. I don’t need help. It is not hard to find specific things on ebay; it just takes time!

    This feature, although fun, seems to create a buyers’ frenzy, and items get snatched up crazy fast. I am not a collector: I look for specific items to use in my home. More than once I have been notified by ebay that one of my saved searches is “in,” only to discover that a blog (not just this one!) has announced it on the web and the bidding has gone mad, or the items have sold already.

    Maybe there is no connection, and the items would have had the same reception without blog announcements, but it always makes me grumpy!

    Forgive me for ranting,

      Aww… I kind of agree. I am/was saving up for those Ruth Richmond drawer pulls… but seven people are watching them now.

      I want the girls to make big bucks so we have this wonderful site, though! 🙂 I look forward to it every day.

      I’m of two minds – my daughter was a seller back when ebay started but in the last 5 or so yrs scaled back because of all the added fees ebay was tacking on, and also after pretty many “stores” were advertising. Too bad they couldn’t have kept them separate but someone would’ve figured out a way around that anyways.
      But then again, you’ve got nomodrama4me (am I even close with that?!) who’s cleaning out her dad’s inventory…

    I like this feature, but what I used to enjoy more was when you would post a link to your curated “watch list” rather than links to just a few items.

      Alas, ebay changed their technology and I cannot do that anymore in a way that links to my affiliate account….

    I do enjoy this as an occasional feature. And if anyone is wondering if the link to your blog is creating a bidding frenzy, I looked up the Muller-Munk pan and found I was only the second watcher in 24 hours. Not such a frenzy.

    No! I’ve been banned there again! (Self imposed.). I hope I at least got you a spiff or 2 linking to there. Ooo chrome Hall-Mack…

    I like that this is back especially as I had been looking for and and figured I just couldn’t find it. Without this, how would I ever have found out about a toilet tank top with a planter much less seen one! Keep up the investigations Pam!
