Hey Hey! Basically, have you or your parents ever put anything up for sale on the worlds biggest auction site? My brother has put up his K'Nex and, is currently in the middle of selling a Beanie Baby (Princess), but that's about it. What's everyone else done on this magical place? ^_^

A bought a used car for fun (it was about $1000, noone wanted it. Too bad the money was part of what I was gonna use for my own computer.), repainted it to make it look like new, and sold it again. I got about $16,000 for it. :D

A used pink bathrobe,
A rare mint snowglobe,
A Smurf TV Tray,
What I bought,
On eBay!

*sees everyone looking*
I haven't actually sold anything but I've bought alot. Most of my N64 games are eBay and I think all but one GBA games are eBay.

Tell me why I need another pet rock,
Tell me why I got that Alf Alarm clock,
Tell me why I bid on Shatner's old toupa,
Had it on eBay!

*coughs use a fake age* Hey what? I'm 16. I recently bought an SPD Delta Morpher and a Sentai movie DVD box set. It's worth $150 and I bought it for $10. XD I still have yet to sell on ebay. I was gonna put my GBA SP up but saw the stupid prices they were going for so I'm selling it to a mate for 45. I really need the money and I don't play it anymore. I'm gonna buy a DS when it comes out in March over here.

eBay? nah... Never used it (including parents) and never will. Though, my grandmother on my dads side of the family spends hrs and hrs a day at eBay. >_< It seems to be the only interesting thing for her to do...

I used it to buy DDR, but that's it. o_O; My mom is utterly paranoid about it and whatnot, so she doesn't like my using it. XP I used Yahoo! Auctions to buy a few subbed YGO DVDs, too. x3

I've yet to sell anything, though. ^^;;

January 19th, 2005, 5:08 PM
No, I've never used eBay, though it looks... interesting. =3 I will soon though. =)

I was just bidding on a really cool dragon pic for my room. I signed up (under a false age, of course) as RedSteer5. No questions about the name, okay?

January 19th, 2005, 5:18 PM
I bought my first pokemon game off of it, Pokemon Red Version. Still have it too.
I've never sold anything though. I have nothing to sell (yet anyways)

January 19th, 2005, 5:29 PM
I've never auctioned (be it buy or sell). I've actually only used online shopping once (I bought a DON'T MAKE ME GO ZELDA ON YOU T-shirt! ^^). I check in at Ebay every so often just to see if they have anything really rare Zeldawsie. If they do, I begin to torture my paretns until they let me try to buy the thing.

Some things I want include those TWW booblehead figure things. Those are so cute! ^^ The Mario/Zelda trading cards, valiant comics and manga, and...*goes back to art homework*

January 20th, 2005, 3:09 AM
i buy and sell dad bought me a wind surfer and a kite surfer on there i've also sold some n64 stuff

January 20th, 2005, 3:27 AM
Hmm I have no means of buying or selling stuff over the net, cause my old folks don't have PayPal or a credit card or anything, and nor would they let me use it. @[email protected] I wouldn't trust half the things on eBay... XD So count that as a no. LOL.

I've never sold anything from Ebay, but i have bought a few things..most have been ok (bought a dvd box set and a couple of small items), but some have been terrible. I've had someone never send the item (managed to get money back), the owner using another screenname to bid against me raising a price of an item by $30 (which Ebay did nothing about apart from banning the member, but at least i still got the item), and an item being sent missing a lot of what was meant to come with it (recently i bought i resin figure..it didnt come with paint, glue, and had a chip in it) which Ebay did nothing about -.-

Nah, I don't really like Ebay that much.I've never used it, and don't plan to any time soon.

Yeah i very rarely buy of Ebay.But sometimes the item's get lost and damage.So that's why you need to trust the person your buying off.

Well, I've never sold anything off of it, but I have bought something. I was doing a search for the '2002 Pokmon Music Collection' (the Japanese Pokmon Heroes soundtrack, in other words) and found it for sale on eBay. I actually had to buy it from another site, but it was advertised there.

Anyway, my grandfather helped me out because he had bought a few things from there a few times, and he used his credit card for it. The CD arrived in perfect condition, and I've been so happy ever since... I have the Secret Garden song now, along with all of the background music from the movie and a ton of cool songs! *_*

I've never put anything on there, but I've bought a couple CD's.

January 21st, 2005, 1:57 PM
I haven't sold anything at all. I don't think I would either. It would just be odd, I think.
My sister's always buying DVDS from it though. XD

January 21st, 2005, 2:13 PM
I love eBay!! XD
Ive bought so much of my manga from there and a few DVDs too, they always have the stuff most of the book stores dont, and the prices are always cheeper.

January 21st, 2005, 2:31 PM
I tried to auction my brother on it. The highest bid was about $5.

January 21st, 2005, 2:39 PM
I've never sold anything nor have I bought anything off of eBay. My dad has bought a lot of sports cards and stuff like that from it though... but that's about it.

January 21st, 2005, 3:13 PM
