I have been leary of eBay only because I really don't want to get stuck with a fake purse, wallet etc. Who does? So I've been studying the threads and making mental notes of the good eBay sellers. Lo and behold,(angels with harps are heard) I found some bags that I actually bid on... but lost. (hopefully to a fellow tPFer ) I have to tell you, what a rush, it is soooo addicting and exciting! I was determined to win and kept bidding, my keyboard was smokin' hot! I started bidding on a Leigh Sig Pocket Flap, it went out for $507, actually more with shipping and a Patchwork Satchel that went for $465. + shipping...yikes!! OMG you could really get into a lot of trouble doing this. I just kept bidding & bidding and just when I thought I was going to win.... it hit me. How the hell am I going to explain these purses to DH if I win? ush: We are doing some major remodeling in our home, so the new Coach additions would not be joyfully welcomed by him at least! Oh no major lecture time. Anyway, I am excited to say, I finally got Bella a Coach dog collar! It's my first Coach purchase on eBay! Woo hoo! It is also not a budget breaker! I know this is a silly post, but I had to share. I would love to get a new purse soon though, I am going through purse withdrawls and I'm envious of all the new purses everyone is getting lately. Thanks for taking the time to read my short novel. Now all I can think of is when will it get here, will it actually fit and is it authentic! Love these smiliesthey add so much to your posts!
