My Ebay Habit...

I have a problem, I can't quit bidding on items on eBay. I really don't know what made me start, but I can't stop. I don't know how many of you love to see your child in smocked clothing, but I do. The outfits are so cute and yet so expensive. So I have discovered on eBay that you can get brand new smocked outfit for a fraction of the cost they are in stores. I have bought numerous outfits that are $70 in the store and I get them for anywhere from $15 to $30 brand new. I actually hesitated to blog this information (you all have probably already discovered it) because soon when you all get addicted, you will be bidding against me on these precious outfits! :) It almost becomes a game when you get down to the last five minutes and you and another person want the same outfit, so you are going back and forth upping the bid a dollar each time. I get quite competitive and usually end up spending more than I want to on the item just so I can win it. It's sick... Anyone else obsessed with eBay?

no with ebay (that would be russell). Yes to smocked dresses. I was going broke buying them so i finally enlisted my mother to start sewing the dresses and smocking them! She cranks them out like crazy now! They are even better than the ones I have bought....Moral of the story: get your momma to start smocking!!!

Brad is selling off his med books on e-bay....rather than burning them which is what he would prefer! :) I think he got addicted, too. There's an adrenaline rush to it!

I am not technically savvy enough to figure out ebay yet. (I've never really tried but it scares me a little bit). Based on the sound of it though, it would be a BAD idea for me because I know how competitive I am. I would get into some trouble, I'm sure!

I am so into smocked clothes. Mark has said only for the first year so you I'm naturally going way over the top. :) You can also find some really cute boys stuff on www.littlelavender.com and I'm sure your into Strausburg. If you get on their mailing list you get coupons in the mail every so often.

I have never gotten into e-bay but I know lots of people who are addicted to it!! To answer your question...yes Paul sings. It's kind of a country/rock mix and he writes all of his own stuff. He finally got a big enough collection that it prompted him to do some recording. It was more just for fun but we are hoping to build a relationship with this studio!! We'll see...
