Great ebay sellers - they exist!

Ok people radio silence didn't happen, it's a long story but my laptop is still in the shop to be mended but we have a new one for my husband so all is good YAY!

Anyway I just wanted to let you know that great ebay sellers do exist!  A while ago I stumbled on something on US ebay that I knew my husband would use and love, it's a vintage keyholder wallet with his initial on the front! Here it is




How lovely is this and how much was it? 99cents! Yes you heard it 99cents! Of course there was postage on top of that which was hardly excessive!

And why was this seller so exceptional? Because I won this lovely thing for 99 cents and they found a tie pin with the initial P so sent that too! FREE!



My husband was chuffed to bits as you can imagine not only did he get a lovely useful gift that cost almost nothing, he got a gift from the seller for nothing!

Bravo to that seller!

I did have another fabulous seller not long ago again I bought a bathroom cabinet for 99p, I went to pick it up and the seller said wouldn't you like to check it is what you want before you take it, he also brought it to the car and put it in for me, all for 99p, amazing!

Just wanted to prove there are still some great sellers out there on ebay.

Really cool wallet and pin - what a steal!
I love Ebay, I can't fault it. In over 9 years of buying and selling on it, I have not had one negative experience. Between myself and my boyfriend, we have bought hundreds of things including cars, computers, furniture,a hoover and tons of clothes etc. All of it turned up, all of it was as described and most were bargains! I certainly would not have got much of the cool stuff I have, or have started my business without it!

Wow very cool seller! =D

I bought a scrap book a few years ago, who was the star featured? Uhhh Yul Brynner! It was for my Mom. The seller had a second one, and just put both in the same box and mailed them! I was thrilled! Bravo!

Ya gotta love the sellers that go above and beyond. A little courtesy goes a long way today, yah?

There are some great sellers...most are top. The climate of ebay is such, that it favors the buyers so sellers have to be tops. I have some favorites...ones I can count on to be fair, ship fast, and their merchandise is represented correctly. Also, don't overprice things!

That's so good to know! My experience on eBay has been about 50% good and 50% bad so far - both as a buyer and a seller. That's really cool that your Seller included that great extra! Recently, I bought this album from an eBay seller (for I am sure a lot less than he thought it was going to go for). When he sent the record, he used other records to protect the record that I bought. I'm pretty sure that he thought that they were junk records but they were actually ones that I liked. Score! :) I had forgotten about those great key cases...Your husband is very lucky!

I love eBay! I've never had any trouble really as a buyer or seller and there are some brilliant people doing business out there. x

Ah that's lovely!

We bought 100 78 records off a seller for £10, and when we went to pick them they had another 100 sat there and they gave them to us for free!

It's nice when people are nice :D

That's so lovely! I've never bought anything from eBay. I just don't like the whole idea of auctions.
