Are people on Ebay crazy?

Just a random rant about trying to get my DD a Belle dress from eBay... Why do these sellers think that selling second hand items with a $25 price tag for the starting bid and $25 for shipping is going to yield them a buyer? I'm on Ebay for the bargain, not to have my paypal account emptied.If I want to spend $50 on a Belle dress, I'm going to the Disney Store.

I don't list the times spent offsite, because to me it doesn't count as a real Disney trip

I've sold more items on ebay than I've purchased. Typically, anything I've sold on ebay, I've sold for a much higher price than if I sold it through other sources such as kijiji, or other.

I have found some good deals buying on ebay, but for the most part, items sell on the high end of pricing.

I have sold some items on Ebay previously and the shipping charge is often unavoidable. That's just what the postal system charges. However I noticed that the Disneystore online has 25% off costumes right now so for slightly more you can get a brand new one.

Cause people buy these items. If it didn't work, eBay wouldn't be out there still. There are tons of people who way overpay for items.
For some, it is just far easier to shop on a computer, than to have to go out and search for something.

Sorry it doesn't work for you. Unfortunately (yet fortunately), it works for so many people.

Yeah, it looks like I'm off to buy a new one. I'm not a cheap person, but no way will I pay that kind of money on eBay for used things.
