Granddaughter's new friend L's mom told me today that she gets all over L's clothes on Ebay and she does have CUTE clothes.
I set up an account today and played with it a bit. I bid on 5 different items. On one I kept getting outbid immediately. It took me a minute to figure that out. Ebay seems to have max bids in reserve.
Two of the items closed tonight and of course I got outbid at the last minute. HA!
I still have 3 outstanding bids and those are several days away. I get that now, too. Don't bother to bid until the last few minutes.
The psychology of the place is amazing. You win or YOU LOSE.
