I learned to never bid on an eBay auction item AND do a BIN at the same time because you just might win the auction too. Here's what happened. After kicking myself for not buying any of the Ruby Patent Tote while doing my holiday shopping, I decided I MUST have one to match my wristlet and miny skinny, and used eBay since every store that had them before Christmas was now sold out. I just knew I'd be outbid on the first bag. I now have 2 Ruby Patent Totes in route to my house. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Mods: I understand if this has to be moved to the Shopping thread.
