eBay addictions
« on: June 21, 2004, 11:02:14 PM »
so whose addicted to ebay. i am. i look on that shit everyday, cos theres always somethin interestin that pops up. lookin at my records, ive done over 110 transactions on ebay, so i guess thats a pretty good amount. ebay is my main source of income now too. i am able to sell a lot of my stuff at a pretty good price, mainly rap music and memorabilia. i dont know why , but it becomes so addicting. maybe its just cos theres always some rare ass shit to find in there. i've gotten my fair share of rare shit from there,that i would've never found anwyehre else...  yeah i dunno, i remember when i was sellin d back home, i would be buyin so much shit on ebay. i'd have new items arriving at my doorstep everyday. but yeah i dunno, who else shares this ebay problem. i try to stop it, but i know if i miss a few days its very possible that i miss on somethin sick. i remember the few days that i didnt look at it, during halloween weekend here, i missed a poster that was essential to my collection, and that pissed the fuck outta me. and it was the only one ive ever seen since signing onto ebay.  u know whats really bad, when u really have an ebay addiction, is that ur used to waking up at odd hours in the morning to do last minute bids on items.  i remember times where i had to rush home from a family dinner at a restuarant just so i could guarantee my winning bid. haha it was ridiculous. ive stopped buying shit now, unless its an absolute, and mostly just sell

I'm addicted.  I look on it everyday, and sell things every week.  I make a ton of money off of it, because if you watch the buy it nows that get posted up each day, you can often buy really good deals really cheap, and then turn around and sell them seperately for what they're worth.  I buy stuff @ the flea market and sell it on ebay, and buy stuff on ebay and sell it at the flea market.  I've been a hustler like that for years.

yea, ive made lots of cash through ebay.

also, after you've sold some stuff it gets you smarter at ebay. your better at finding deals and spotting rip offs. well for me it was.

I'm scared of buying shit online. If not I would use eBay and sell shit all the time.
