Default First e-bay purchase

I just paid for my first e-bay purchase; not Anne-related, but skiffy nonetheless: 20 Hawkwind badges for $23 + free postage!

Yay! *happy dance*

I'm on it at least 3-4 times a week, sometimes to sell or buy depending on what I'm after. I always thought it was 20 feedback before one got their first star but then again I started over 5 years ago so I honestly can't remember or was that before they accepted you as bonafide buying/selling. Whatever ... Ghyle just remember if you need help, just ask. Someone will help you out.

Congradulations! I am usually outbid whenever i try e-bay
I tried several times to get the book game from there and failed everytime. Lucky for me two weeks ago I found one one at amazon.com for only 16 dollars. Now to find the Ral Partha miniature.

You'll have to shell out a LOT more for the Ral Parha miniature than for your book ame

The last one I saw being sold on internet (eBay) went for more than $250 ex postage.
