I'm not one of those ebay fiends who buys some awesome item at a rock-bottom price and then re-sells it and turns a profit, but the few ebay transactions I've had have been pretty satisfying. The first time I used ebay was to buy my wedding dress.
I was a bit nervous about the idea, but I figured that if the dress turned out to be a complete disaster, then I was only $100 in the hole, which isn't too terribly bad when it comes to purchasing a wedding dress. I'm happy to say that after Mom altered and re-hemmed it a bit, it worked out just fine.
My next purchase: this Cotton Blossoms layer cake, many many moons ago. I bought it a couple of years back to do Rachel's Pinwheel Quilt Along. I think I'll still eventually use this fabric for this particular project, but I've been sidetracked for the past few years.
My most recent purchase: some Martinique scraps by 3 Sisters for Moda. I'm still pondering what exactly to do with these strips. I didn't have a specific plan in mind, but the strips weren't expensive, the fabric is cute, and I was feeling exceptionally virtuous yet fun-loving because I had just finished a couple of projects and was about to head out on vacation.
What about you? Do you have a love or hate relationship with ebay? Have you ever used it to de-stash?
