With all the talk bashing eBay, I started thinking about why I still love it.... and all I have to do is look in the direction of my closet. My best deal of all time was probably a pair of Hollywould silver ballet flats, brand new with the box, for a Buy it Now price of $15!!! I have no idea what the seller was thinking, but the rest of his shoes weren't great brands, so I can only assume he didn't know what he had. Other great stuff: -vintage pale gold Ferragamo pumps, great cond,$20 -true religion jeans, the dark denim with gold stitching (orig. nearly $500) for $85 --it was xmas, and i guess no one else was on their computer to bid -my tanner krolle bag with the cutouts--twice! the first one was only about $150, but it got stolen not soon after i bought it. sure enough, a few months later, i found it again for $250 (although it had grown some hair in the time we were apart--the first one was suede, but the one i have now has pony hair). -a brand new lauren moffatt tunic for $25 that i'd been eyeing at Barneys -a union denim skirt for $6 (also a buy it now; probably retailed for $150ish!) Honestly, there's so much great stuff if you know where to look! I just avoid the mainstream brands (why does Banana Republic sell for so much?!), and the frequently knocked-off high end designers in favor of lesser-known designers (like Lauren Moffatt, Foley & Corinna, etc.)... if you look for stuff no one else is searching for, you can get such incredible deals.
