    logical..You know that everyone on eBay doesn't know right from wrong. I've got a dozen stories where I was the seller and the buyer paid more than retail because they got caughtup in a bidding frenzy.

    Guys, don't say everyone, okay? I am an eBay buyer. If I am looking for something, and I think the price is reasonable (buy it now), I will likely buy it. If it is a regular auction, I only bid to the point that I think is reasonable (and can afford).

    Granted, many DO get caught up in a bidding war. Computer memory dutch auctions are a good example of this. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    That's the way auctions work.

    I agree w/ Charles. Auctions, even virtual, can be exciting. My family has learned that we have to set a maximum price and then stick with it, or less [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] .
    Sometimes you shake your head and say 'I can't believe they spent so much for that.'
    Sometimes you shake your head and say 'I can't believe I got such a great buy.'
    The funny thing is, is that both things are said about the same Item.
    One other comment--I see alot of people complaining about ebay and PayPal fees. It is part of doing business. For a small retailer CC fees tend to be high, PayPal is a good alternative. The exposure you get on ebay is incredible for what you pay, advertising is expensive.
    I hope you find the right gifts Owen. What will you follow up with next year? And how does one get on your list [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
