A great ebay bargain!!

First of all I don't buy much as I'm trying to build my business and that comes first before me and stuff. I also don't really 'need' anything having collected for so many years, in fact I've been getting rid of things rather than buying them, however that doesn't mean I don't look! Well hey there could be something out there that you've been searching for years for, or you just can't live without, or whatever. Anyway I often look on ebay, it's window shopping for those without money, I can't trust myself to window shop at antique markets and fairs, I would spend money far too easily!

Anyway I rarely see things on ebay that I think are a bargain, I know people get them but clothes wise I certainly never see anything in my particular curvaceous size ;o) I do see some fabulous material but that always seems to go for a lot of money too, I used to get such bargains on there material wise!

But this week I bought something on ebay for the first time in AGES, and for 99p, yep 99p! I couldn't believe it, you know when you see something and you think they've put that in the wrong category, well clearly they had cos I scored it for 99p WHAHOO!

Here it is!




I know I wouldn't even get them that cheap in the US as I've seen similar stuff on my visits! I'm rather proud of my bargain.....

Have you scored any spectacular bargains lately?

I love found ebay bargains in wrong category. it's so exciting to wait the end of the auction with crossed fingers. ;p
Great finds.
I've stop to buy ceramic on internet, many times it cames broken like as a train pass on it ha ha ha !!!

As I too am self employed, most of my pennies go straight back into my business so I know exactly where you are coming from!
I LOVE ebay and Etsy - like you said, its window shopping delight. I look at them every day, without fail (sad I know!) and I'm always looking for the next bargain. I also love car booting - getting a bag full of goodies for a few pounds is such a buzz, but the only downside is, it makes everywhere else seem so expensive! £19.99 for that blouse? But I got one for 50p at the car boot last week!

I'm sure I saw this very auction on eBay ha ha. I do a lot of searching to find these kinds of deals, Congrats!

I buy ONLY what I think I really need for the house I am renovating. Once I get her all done and decorated, I think I will be giving some of it away, BUT the best deal I ever got so far was the 1950's pink appliance suite: Double oven, stove, stove hood and pink cast iron sink in excellent condition for $195.

They should be delivered tomorrow, and when they are, I can give a big sigh!

I almost never find great deals, but this has to be the best of the best!

Big mama - yes this is the problem with ceramics, it hasn't arrived yet so hoping it doesn't break!

DCC - ah yes you know how it is! The other thing is I started collecting over 20 years ago & could pick stuff up so cheap then, I faint at the prices asked now!

Atomic Ranch - why don't I know your name by now ha ha! Anyway I have to say the best bargain of all was your pink appliance suite, I couldn't believe you got it for that price, CRAZY!!

That's an incredible price! You sure as heck would *never* have scored it for that price over here "across the pond"! Don't you love it when you get a great find for cheap? I do! Well done!

I know Kim, I couldn't believe it!

Great find!! I love the Oriental figurines from the 50s. I have too many of them at the moment...

Straight Talking Mama! said...

I love Oriental Figures too, I got rid of loads a few years ago & regret it now :o(

UPDATE: They arrived this morning, they're in excellent condition, though could do with a clean, very very happy!!

Awesome figurines- the bargain prices is a bonus! I would have squealing with delight when this went off- well done!

Straight Talking Mama! said...

I know, we're still squealing about it now, we keep looking at them and saying 99p!!!!
