We spent the weekend doing some around-the-house stuff, such as finally getting pants to the tailors, taking a huge pile of clothes and shoes to Goodwill, and — oh yes — posting a few things for sale on eBay. While posting a few shoes and dresses, I of course did my research and looked at other similar listings, seeing lots of similar items that I knew were as authentic as mine. It really amazed me what great deals truly can be had on eBay, from tons of designers — if you know what to look for.
So I thought today we’d talk about that — how often do you guys buy stuff on eBay? What are your favorite items to buy on eBay, and what’s the most you’ve ever spent on an item? Any favorite “shops” or sellers? I went through a phase a few years ago where I kept purchasing bras on eBay. I had an unusual size, and my favorite bras (Fantasie, Rigby & Peller, etc.) were all $60-$120 each. I found a great little shop on eBay where the owner apparently lived near the outlet store and would sell the bras (new with tags) for drastically reduced prices — I remember paying closer to $20 or so per bra. I got a TON of great deals on some gorgeous bras. Otherwise, I haven’t bought too much stuff on eBay. (I occasionally stalk Vuitton Epi bags in a rare shade of blue, but I’ve never pulled the trigger — and I swear I’ve seen the same picture used to advertise similar bags for like three years in a row.)
