I have a confession to make: I have a new addiction. Many of you have already probably used it, but for me last month was the first time.
It’s called eBay!
It all started a few weeks ago when I was trying to figure out how to add in pieces of my china collection without breaking the bank. After checking the prices of some of the china pieces online with regular stores, I suddenly thought about eBay. What a discovery! With the Canadian dollar so high now against the U.S. dollar, it’s the ideal time for Canadians to shop online with eBay. (Sorry, I hate to sound like an advertisement for eBay but I’m just so excited to get a good deal!)
Take, for instance, the savings that I just realized on this covered vegetable dish: This item is currently on sale for $372.60 through a store in Vancouver (that has their prices listed online). In Ontario this dish is retailing for $465.75. Guess what I paid for this little gem, my friends? CAD$170!!
I’m overcome with excitement (well, I’m excited as someone can be about hideously expensive china I guess!) and can’t wait to ‘win’ some more. Just to prove where this one came from…here’s some of the packing paper that the dish came in:
Yep, you guessed it, it’s the Japanese sports pages! Love it. What a way to start my Tuesday…
