eBay

Ok so I promised I'd write a post about the evils/awesomeness
of eBay.
And now I am delivering it to you ;)

I had never really looked at eBay before in my life.
I knew what it was and had an account apparently.
(Don't remember making that one)
But my mom had become a queen of bidding on eBay
and showed me how easy it was.

And showed me how much Disney stuff was on the site!!

Needless to say......
I have now spent over $80 on eBay.
Most of it on Disney stuff....
yeah..........


Now I want you to know that eBay is an amazing place to find lots of cool things:
like I finally found the Disney "Fantasmic" CD
Hooray!!
(for those of you who don't know what Fantasmic is,
look it up on YouTube or Google it)
lithographs from different Disney movies that I didn't already have,
movies in general,
cups and plates,
figurines,
shoes and clothes,
etc.

I have now stopped bidding on stuff and only put things that have more than
a week on the site in my "watchlist"
which is a beautiful thing let me tell you.
You don't ever have to bid or buy it,
it's just there if you want it.
Kinda like a wishlist
only with a timer attached.

Also, eBay is very very helpful in situations that are difficult.
Like I have yet to receive something that I paid for at the beginning of the month.
And the user is no longer registered on eBay.
So if it doesn't come within this week, I'm lodging a complaint with eBay
not against eBay, against the user
and they will refund my money ;)
Great isn't it?
Yes, yes it is.

Here's just a sampling of the stuff I've won:

A vintage poster Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White bag
w/ matching wallet
$7 w/ shipping

This Beast lithograph
(not framed, I framed it myself)
$10 w/ shipping

A ceramic Sleeping Beauty in the blue dress!
(The best find yet!)
$8 w/ shipping

Anyone remember these cups from Burger King?
From like 10 years ago or so?
Yeah I won 10 of them ;)
10 cups for $10 and only $8 shipping altogether.
10 cups for $18.
Awesome.
(And yes, I know there's only 9 pictured.
I got 2 Lion King ones so I gave one to my parental units ;) )

I also have Hunchback of Notre Dame, Pocahontas, and Peter Pan
lithos that I won I just didn't take pictures of them
cuz they're not framed yet.
But I'll post about them when they get their frames ;)
I have a stainless steel Mickey watch that was $7 w/ shipping
(although it came with 2 dead watch batteries,
so they got a not-so-great feedback from me)
and I'm waiting on a movie and that other watch.

I officially love eBay ;)

  1. That's awesome! I'd check it out, but I don't really need to be checking that site as well. XD Although, I'm sure I can get lots of teacher stuff for cheap. :) lol

  2. I totally have the Beauty and the Beast cup from Burger King still! My dad uses it all the time! Haha. I didn't even remember where that cup came from. It is so old!
