I buy a great variety of items on ebay. For example, today I bought batteries, books and clothes.

Anything I may need. Most of all I buy high end cosmetics for rock bottom prices.

I do the majority of my purchases on ebay, VS bras, Dooney, and Uggs are my best bargains. Also love to shop for accesories for kindles and ipads for gifts. Husband and son buy most of their car parts there if not needed in a hurry big savings over automotive stores.

Everything from skincare to computer cords.

I tried being patient but it took too long.

Lately I've discovered Miss Elaine nightgowns which are very well made and expensive to buy in B&M stores. I've bought 4 or 5 NWTs. In the spring I like to buy day lilies as people thin their plants. The quality of plant I get from eBay sellers is far better than I've gotten from any nursery. I've also bought bags and jewelry.

Lands End swimsuits, Baggallini bags, Nomadic Traders jackets, and LLBean sweaters are my favorite ebay items.

I used to buy an assortment of things on eBay, but have cut back to not much at all. A few months ago there was a show on TV about counterfeit everything. It's almost impossible to tell the difference.

It was from makeup, handbags, clothing to expensive golf clubs. Most of the counterfeits are sold on eBay, unfortunately. You have to really be careful.

I always buy new items. I check the sellers rating and make sure they use pay pal. I always check every detail of the description and prefer if they have a return policy. Not all do, but it's nice when they do. Recently, I picked up a brand new Kate Spade bag, new with tags. Received that yesterday in pristine condition. I also bid and won on a matching wallet, new with tags. Received that today - again in pristine condition. I've never had one problem with any purchase we've made through ebay - thankfully.

I tried being patient but it took too long.

Thats why you check out the sellers ratings and read the feedback have purchased over 500 items on ebay and only purchased one item that was questionable and that was early on and did receive a refund for it. Most of my items are from sellers selling HSN and QVC merchandise that buy items from lots. Also workers from Dillards that seem to be able to pick up the store bargains before the customers.

I bought used children's clothing when my kids were little. I was very into Gymboree, and I would want certain pieces to complete looks.

I often buy used items. I am amazed at how many very slightly used or never worn items are available. I read descriptions very carefully and ask sellers many questions to try to assure quality and size measurements. I've made some mistakes along the way, but the excellent buys far outweigh the mistakes.

I've been fortunate to find some great leather items on E-Bay. I have purchased skirts, pants, tops, and even a few suits. Some are new with tags, others as good as new, seldom worn pieces. The best part is being able to find those of a wide variety of colors other than black or brown. For example an orange skirt that I wear around Halloween. I have had maybe two bad purchases, those that were not accurately described. I'd rate my experiences at a 9 out of 10.

I love buying old Christmas decorations. Last year I bought a lot of Christopher Radko ornaments.

One of my favorite ebay buys was a letter signed by my grandfather! I also got a copy of my dad's freshman college yearbook that he had been unable to afford at the time. He was thrilled.

I've bought lots of new things but I'm not afraid to buy used either. I buy used clothing if it can be washed--most of it looks new or barely used. I buy used books, jewelry. I always check sellers feedback. I've bought thousands of items from ebay and had only a few bad experiences.

Wow PurpleBunny, what a touching story and great finds. I love eBay also and find lately I'm shopping for QVC & HSN items. When I see something I like on QVC, I search on eBay first. I have found many items that were on my Q wishlist for significantly cheaper on eBay.

Have a great day on purpose
