Its not all about money, Ebay can just be FUN. When I was buying railway memorabillia for my husbands collection for Christmas, all sorts of lovely people put extra bits in and wrote friendly messages. IT WAS FUN!! And when I was buying stuff for my daughters new baby, everyone was so generous and glad to pass their baby stuff on at a bargain price. If you REALLY want to enjoy Ebay, then take the time to sometimes JUST GIVE SOMEONE A WONDERFUL BARGAIN!! You cant buy the feel good facter you get from that! And after all, you didnt stand in the cold at a car boot sale, you sat at a computer and spread a bit of JOY around!! Go on go for it ..... what goes around comes around you know! EXCITING isnt it.
