  • Got a deal on ebay!

    I know I am going to sound an idiot but I have never tried to win an auction on ebay before yesterday. I have an ebay shop and have bought loads of craft stuff but never by auction. Anyway I had spotted some sizzix alphabars that I had looked at in a shop and wanted, but they were £80! Anyway to cut a long story short I bid in the auction for them (which saw Ian my partner and I jumping around like two excited children as we were in the lead etc..) I won them! I am well happy as they have only been used once, so good as new, and I only paid £33!
    Now I can't wait for them to arrive...

              ebay is a great place to find craft bargains. As long as you use common sense, pay by a secure method such as PayPal and comminicate with the seller, you should be able to shop with complete confidence.

                  Be careful of buying Swarovski on ebay. If they were chipped, they were NOT Swarovski, but made in China. Swarovski actually don't want their names used on ebay as a lot of Chinese crystals are re-branded Swarovski when they are not. The lead content is different, therefore the quality is inferior, however, unnoticed to the untrained eye. Again if the holes are irregular, it's not Swarovski.
                  If you want to know more read this thread, especially the bit from Mark Frances.

                  As for Sterling Silver, there is an ebay seller I think called Shiana (Shianna?). She is in the US but has an excellent reputation.
