First, I'm not really an Ebay shopper... mainly because I have made some pretty big mistakes in the past and realized I can't be trusted!
You see, I have this "I WANT IT NOW" problem and having to wait 5+ days to find out if I "won" something makes me a little crazy. This was evidenced when I bought TWO, countem, TWO heavy duty paper cutters (both over $300 each!!!)...because I bid on one then find another closing sooner so I bid on it too. OH MERCY! Thankfully, I found someone willing to buy the second one right away. (THANK YOU JESUS!).
Then there was a time that I paid more in bidding than they were selling the item for on their online store! NOT happy about that!
Anywaaaay, I decided to chance it again last week and I just got what I "won" yesterday and today.
First thing... I bid on 72 Marvy LePlume II Markers or a grouping of 6 12 marker packs ...
|only 5 shown because I left one in the box and didn't realize it|
at Micheal's each pack is $21 so the 6 packets would be $126+ I won the bid for $43+ $5 shipping. YES!!! A GREAT DEAL! (even with a 40% coupon)
Then today I got a really huge surprise! I got my second "won" item. ... an old Webster's Dictionary. I found out that there are some auctions that let you "Make Your Best Offer"!! I did not know you could do that! So, I gave it a try. There was a Webster's Dictionary listed at a "Buy It Now" price of $15 so I offered $10 and they accepted it. I have no clue if I got a good price or not, I just know that I am THRILLED with it! That puppy is a MONSTER!
It has 1000+ pages and was published in 1952! What fun! That makes it 58 years old! YES!!!
You want to see the definition of "Love" in 1952? I wonder if its different now?? I don't really care what it is now... I like everything about "Love" better back then I think....
VERY COOL! HAPPY HAPPY DAY!
Do you want a picture of a word defined??? Just ask in the comments and I'll take one for you. :-)
