    What was your last purchase on Ebay

    I'll admit it, I'm addicted to ebay....If I need something, doesn't matter what it is, I'll check ebay first.

    Started with vintage skateboards, but I'll look for anything.....cell phone cases, video games for my kid...whatever.

    Now I'm obviously hunting bike parts...

    Last thing I "won" was a Ringle seat post.

    My watch list is full, but mostly for researching the current market on a few items that I'm needing.


    anyone else hit ebay daily? what was the last item you "won"

    If there is a thread in the OC on this, sorry but the noob in me is strong

    What was your last purchase on Ebay

    After a bad selling experience I've been pretty much avoiding fleabay.

    I bought one of those 5k real life sex dolls, it was damn hard finding a very well used one which i prefer for obvious reasons, and it was a long search finding an 80+ age model, surprisingly enough they arnt great sellers.
    Damn heavy these things are too, and they do get a bit smelly after years of not cleaning, but that adds to the experience, im actually setting up a 'group' of guys that like to swap them at doll swapping parties or just over the weekend, its a damn rewarding hobby.

    Thanks Tone's, I thought that I was the only one who enjoys the finer things.

    The actual last thing i won was today actually, 10 1st generation vintage polish starwars bootleg figures, made from melted car tyre rubber, very rare, highly collectable and full of charm.

    I collect vintage kenner starwars figures and toys from 30 years ago (my childhood) they connect me with the inner child and are very nostalgic for me, not to mention they are highly collectable and many are very rare.

    Then ive delved into vintage bootleg starwars figures from very poor countries around the globe.

    I also collect german military iron crosses, i have 12 from 1st class to 2nd, and every german medal awarded in the 1st and second world wars, trench art and jewllery also hitler youth daggers and memorabilia, german memorabilia is the most sort after and highest price war memorabilia, and to get the original items with COAs takes a lot of effort as they are not allowed to be sold on ebay, and are getting rarer and rarer.

    Also collect many other strange and infamous things that i wont go into here.

    I know, right? They're probably so sick of "oh no, not another thread about which tire to run in sandy conditions".

    Oh, man! It was you who outbid me in the last 2 seconds?! I hate it when that happens! Enjoy what should have been my shorts!!!

    I'm watching a few other items, though:
    *Mike Meyers original Halloween mask (complete with his dried runny nose snot)
    *the actual chainsaw used in the massacre in Texas
    *John Holmes left testicle (preserved in formaldehyde)
    *Linda Lovelace's inner throat cavity (preserved in formaldehyde)
    *Jason's machete
    *a Bozo-the-clown costume (complete)
    *bound and gagged Howdy-doody doll

    If it's been less than three hours, you could probably still get your 50 dollars worth.

    Just warm her up by placing her in a XL trash bag then submerging her in a bath tub full of hot water for about 20 minutes. Good to go!

    you'll see 'em in what, like 4 weeks? I've bought a couple things from China, mainly smartphone covers and a bike computer.... So damn cheap plus free epackets! Oh I bought 147 little people from Greece, envelope came with some cool stamps....

    I did buy a cassette, but it was tweeked when I installed it, never should have bought a used one. Seller was super cool and refunded me that day....

    I think i'm going to check the market on Stretch Armstrong and maybe some marbles

    Actually, they should be here in about ten days. Pretty quick.

    I hope the envelope had an air tank.

    I stopped by Jensons today to pick up some grips and a chain. And a new floor pump. WTB Mutanos are my favorite tire for my singlespeeds and I needed one. But not at $60. I checked the 'bay and found the same one for under $30 shipped.
