It comes in three’s …


Luck, that is. Or so people say. Well If it’s right, then I’ve just had my ‘three’ with eBay. The first one, with the mouses (mice … meece…?) was resolved, but since then another two issues have occurred. Both of them are leading up to a successful conclusion, but it’s the time and the trouble … Continue reading It comes in three’s …

Never usually bother …


Not quite the whole story … I never bother for small amounts! I’m talking about eBay purchases that go wrong. If the sum is less than £10.00, I tend to put it down to experience and never use that seller again. I have a personal blacklist that I refer to when I’m buying something, and … Continue reading Never usually bother …

As good as a rest, they say …


Change! It’s not a thing that I’m particularly  good at. I tend to stick to something I’m comfortable with or something I like. I’m not one for trying out new things.

My, I suppose it’s greed, led me to purchase an item that turned out to … Continue reading Won’t get fooled again …

So I scoured eBay and found one that looked to be just what I wanted. Not the cheapest and not the most expensive either. It … Continue reading Must be getting soft …

Watch out !! Scammer about !!


I’m always up for a bargain, so when I decided that I needed to buy some ink for my printer, I turned as usual to the internet.  To be exact, I nearly always go though EBay and this occasion was no different. I ran a search and the price for a twin-pack (colour and black) … Continue reading Watch out !! Scammer about !!

My first time….


I simply have to blog this. Tonight, Mathew I'm ….. no no no, that's the wrong thing. Tonight I won my first eBay auction. Not such a big deal some may say, but this one has been. You see, I've been after an expanding briefcase, and this one person has been selling them with a … Continue reading My first time….
