Tada! I'm so excited!
I'm amazed I got it so cheap. People are crazy on eBay nowadays. It's like, "ooo this it X Vintage Store, if I buy this I'll look just like the seller!" But I mean really, let's be realistic. $100+ for a leather vest on eBay? Are you serious? And I know people don't even research these things because there are like 10 others in the same size being sold for like $30 dollars right now. And then there are those times where two different vintage sellers somehow manage to sell the exact same thing while still touting that it's one of a kind.
How To Bid On eBay
A Few Tips
* Just cause they say it's vintage, doesn't mean it is.
* Vintage is not the be all end all. There's perfectly good clothing that's not vintage.
* Don't be exclusively loyal to one store.
* And please, don't bid on the first day of auction. It's not gonna help you win, and if you do win you'll end up paying more than you need to. Most sellers start at a listing price of $9.99, if you've bid on it and it's now at $50 and there are 5 days left, you've done something wrong.
I don't mean to rant. I say all this to say mind your pocketbooks so that we (you and I) can get things cheap on eBay (the way it should be.)
