    Is ebay an addiction too? I don't even know why I did this. Does any one else buy from e-bay?

    I love ebay!! It's where I get all my adhesives!!! The prices (with shipping) are better than I can get here at my LSS!! I've bought paper piecings, too.

    I was in to stamping, but once I got into scrapping, I sold all my stamping stuff and put it in to scrapping. I love ebay and YES!! It's addicting!!

    awhile back I did but then realized it was just a fair deal and with coupons at Micheal's would have been the same and less stress!

    I have got some really good deals on eBay, but you have to be careful and know how much things are worth. Also check the shipping charges that will apply because sometimes that is where the "seller" makes their profit.

    Ebay is sooooo fun! I began "ebaying" when it was only in it's second year! You really can find some great bargains sometimes. The main thing I watch for is shipping charges. I believe some people make their money off of shipping, not what they sell! It is a great resource for finding things that you can't always find where you live. I bought nearly all of youngest DD's birthday presents off of Ebay this year! She wanted a Toy Story party. There aren't too many Toy Story toys in the stores anymore, but I found MORE than enough there!

    It's also a great place to sell things that you no longer want, but don't want to just give away. I get a much better price for kids' clothes there then I ever could from a garage sale!

    Good luck!!

    AUGH Laura -
    why did you have to remind me that E-bay existed!
    I hadn't bought anything since before x-mas (and then I only saved $5 by the time I finished with shipping!)
    Now I just put in a $75 bid on CM albums! AUGH!

    Or did you bid on several albums.


    I'm having a class/party in July if you want to order from there instead.

    It was a set of three albums- lol
    make sure to e-mail me just before your party and see where I am at here! I am trying desperately to go NO SHOPPING here! It is not working out so well :(
    I want to have a lot of cash for the KISS event, and we are in the middle of buying land to build a house so hubby is stoping my scrapping and stuff allowance from him :rolleyes:
    But I may NEED an album by then :) and CM are all that I use!
    I was actually thinking of signing up with them so I can at least get things at cost (but $500 every three months is a little more than I spend now!)

    I have never gone to their site to look around before and maybe I shouldn't go back.

    But, I sure wish AC Moore wasn't so close to my office during lunch.

    Oooh Ebay is a huge addiction! LOL...My DH is an Ebay Addict for sure! He is on there everyday looking for stuff for his business!

    I buy occasionally from Ebay, usually scrapbooking stuff or Strawberry Shortcake collectables...I have a huge SS Collection that I have had since I was a kid!

    Have fun, sometimes you can get great deals on Ebay!

    Crazyforpooh ! ! It’s all your fault and I wanted to thank you! I went on e-bay last night and found a really good deal. 30 something rubber stamps with a start bid of $1.00. I won it for a total of $2.05. Thanks ! ! ! Oh PS….I don’t e-bay that much. It’s gotta be a great deal or I will not go bite.

    Whooo hooo, I am having my best ever ebay sale!!
    I had posted an auction for the Creating Keepsakes The big Idea Book of Disney Memories.
    I had no idea it was so popular!
    I had listed it for 5.00 and it is now up over 20.00!!!
    I realize now that it is out of print so I guess that explains why it is fetching such a good price...tee hee heee-hope it goes up a few more dollars before the auction is over!
    I really only expected 6.00 or 7.00 dollars for it!
