After all the posting in the seller watch with regards to some LV Vernis pieces and some LV MC Papillon 30, I won this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6840131021&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1

I was watching another piece but someone used But It Now in the last hour so it was gone. :cry: Then, the same thing happened with another Vernis piece and I almost gave up. :evil: But I patiently waited and asked around and I got that! What do you guys think?

Oh no! I hope you find another one for a good price. I didn't think that anyone would BIN with one hour left and I saw one go after the other so I was like, WTF?! :evil: But I got this one and everything checks out. I wanted to get it authenticated by mypoupette but there wasn't much time left so I kept on reading the guides and such. I could bring it to the LV closest to me so I'm kinda resting easy on this. Good luck to all those looking on eBay! Don't give up (even though I almost did)!

i've got about a dozen more speedys on my watch list, lol, but i don't like to bid, i like to BIN, and that was the only one with that option :sad: i'm almost never home or at a computer when my auctions end because i work and go to school on pretty rigid schedules. congrats on your success, though, ebay success can be had, i suppose.

Amanda, you have to try esnipe.com. They do all the work for you....and hold your bid until the last few seconds of the auction. That way, it doesn't drive the price way up from bidders trying to top eachother! You don't have to be there for the auction end....

I have been using it for the past couple years now....it truly is amazing!
