I just got on Ebay recently because I needed to order some Addi knitting needles (sizes that aren't included in my Denise Interchangeable set, which is on the way!). My Addis arrived tonight all the way from Hong Kong, free shipping. I'm in love with ebay already. I can see already that it's an addictive site. I know it's been around a while, but I purposefully did not join because I knew I'd find things I wanted.
Aside from my Addi needles, I bidded on and won a vintage filet table runner for 99 cents. I'm not expecting much. I just thought it would be fun to try my hand at restoring something -- something that did not cost me much. Perhaps I will post some before and after shots.
I'm learning a lot about the "bidding" and "watching" items. I have my eye on some more vintage linens, some toys for Grace, and a Boyd's Bears knitting figurine. Online shopping is a very dangerous thing.
