Silver mirrors

April 11, 2011

Last week, in the middle of the night my Silver Mirror that hangs above the fireplace decided to fall off the wall it was hanging on and scared the life out of me at 2am in the morning.

I pulled out the hockey stick which has lay under my bed for the past 3 years in case of burglary, and crept down the stairs to find a thousand shards of glass all over the wooden floor.

I loved that silver mirror and will miss it, but hey ho, there are more silver mirrors in the world so its off to eBay for me to find a new one.

I want a silver clock design if anyone sees one let me know!

Royal wedding invitations

February 24, 2011

With the Royal Wedding invitations having been handed out this week, the public are starting to get excited about what is likely to be one of the events of the year.
With the guest list ranging from David & Victoria Beckham, through to MP’s and other members of the royal family, it is likely to be a who’s who of fashionable people.
The invitations that have been released were quickly leaked to the press and have been widely praised for their simple, yet elegant design. This is in keeping with William and Kate’s modest lifestyle that they appear to lead despite being one of the most photographed couples.
For those of us not lucky enough to get an invite, there is the added bonus of the way the bank holidays fall and if you are clever enough (or your boss is understanding), then you can actually end up with 11 days off work, whilst using only 3 official holiday days.
If you haven’t already started thinking about it, the opportunity for street party is something that shouldn’t be turned down. These parties are likely to be the bringing together of people, who in current society don’t always speak with their neighbours.
All in all, the wedding of William and Kate will be an event not to be missed.


Why I love ebay

January 12, 2011

I love ebay. I love everything about it. I love the logo, the web address, the items. Brilliant.

If you haven’t got any money, then ebay is a place where you can sell all sorts of rubbish and make a few pence from it.

It’s not just about selling stuff though. Everything about it is good; the logo, the web address, the items. Brilliant.

Sometimes I just sit and stare at the logo for hours on end. The bright colours are so nice and it’s my favourite way to spend an evening. I love looking at ebay. You should try it too.

Making money from eBay at Christmas

November 26, 2010

If you are looking to make a bit of extra cash to fund your Christmas presents spree then you’d better get cracking. You really need to work out what you are selling and get your inventory ready asap. As listings can take from a day to 10 days and with just a few days left in November you need to think about your eBay listings.

People are after all sorts of things at this time of year so you never know what will sell, and what won’t.Just ensure that you put as much (accurate) of a description as possible, along with one or two genuine photos and you could be raking in the money. Oh, and although Paypal fees have been on the rise for some time, it is still the safest method of payment out there.

Thinking about buying a car on eBay?

November 24, 2010

Many people consider buying any item on eBay to be a risk, be it a DVD or a pair of shoes, so to look at the motors section would fill them with dread. However, if you think about it in the same way as anything else, it may be a bigger risk to take but you can still get a good deal.

In fact, the two cars I have now bought on eBay have been great so the myth that all eBay car sellers are cowboys is totally misplaced. Like with any purchase you should always check the seller’s feedback rating, plus all other details about the item to see if it is as much of a bargain as it seems at first sight.

Finally, you should ideally go and see the car in person to go for a test drive and reassure yourself that the motor is the same as it is described in the listing. By doing this you should have no problem and can grab yourself a real bargain.

Glastonbury or the world cup

June 8, 2010

I know this has little to do with eBay but on the other hand everyone will be shopping on eBay for there world cup equipment and for stuff at Glastonbury.

Last year a friend of mine spent £36 on a tent chairs, mats, sleeping bag etc which I’m sure if he had wanted to that he could of resold for around £100.

The world cup stuff that’s all over eBay at the minute is really expensive and boring I’m sure after the world cup you will be able to get some great memorabilia even the odd players shirt.

Whats your choice this year Glastonbury or the world cup?


The onset of spring

March 6, 2010

With the onset of spring finally appearing n the UK is it time to change to change your eBay selling techniques or is it time to stick to the tried and tested. I notice always around this time of year that lots of people get the summer bug and try and sell off all there summer gear from last year to prepare for that inevitable summer holiday.

Last year I saw some funny things appearing on eBay like giant inflatables that have obviously been bought on holiday, no doubt because of the expenditure buying them, they were dragged back to the UK and the mistake was realised, so that’s why in 2009 we saw eBay flooded with blow up animals and floatation devices.

Cheap gas cooker eBay

November 23, 2009

So I have finally pulled my finger out and decided to sell the cooker I stupidly bought when I moved into my house a year ago which was the wrong size. As you can see from the photo its a decent cooker but simply doesn’t fit the space. You can watch the auction here or if you fancy a 1 year old well looked after gas cooker for pick up only in the Macclesfield area/ Cheshire area then feel free to bid. Its on a 3 day auction and has had the minimum asking price met already. My new one arrives on Saturday so im looking to get rid as soon as possible.


fireproof spray

September 16, 2009

fireproof spray again another random product or subject that is being over looked on eBay if you google the term fireproof spray it comes up with one hundred and fifty six thousand results but when you type it in to eBay and search for it, you get no results at all, so why are these niche industries being missed, or should I set up a business and target them through eBay perhaps I could make a killing.

Have you ever dominated a product on eBay as it must be easier than google as your listing gets higher the more time that passes.
