noooo you're not weird. i do too especially in those last few seconds when someone else usually jumps in with a higher bid.

if it's something i *really* want i almost hyperventilate! :unsure:

I think I've only bidded once on something and I was immediately out bidded. I think that is a good thing. I could imagine my competition side running away with me and going way over my max.

I've bought loads of Disney pins from Ebay but I'd love to start selling some of our junk! I'm always put off looking into it though as I think it will be a load of hassle :unsure:

it is a big hassle when putting it on but it does get quicker with time- i have only had success with named things really.

If i want something i always 'watch' it then bid at the last minute.

This week i won 2 brand new red duvet covers and pillow cases for Jack's new bed and only paid 5.99.I was the only bidder :)

I've never done eBay, but I used to love to go to country auctions when living in the northeast. It was a true adrenalin rush to bid on an object and then end up with the winning bid. The difference of course is that it is all too easy to get swept up in the moment and get into bidding wars.

I once watched a war over some really old (and holey!!!) wool blankets where the auctioneer stopped the bidding and said, "LADIES!!! THEY AREN'T WORTH IT!!!" LOL.

I loved those auctions and got some incredible stuff. :yes:

I deliberately refuse to get involved in eBay, because I KNOW I'd be on it constantly... perhaps one day when I've learned self control. :D :D
