Two kinds of eBay auctions stand out in my mind long after the bidding has closed: the ones where I overpaid for something, and the ones where I walk away feeling as if I stole it. And eBay auctions can be a funny thing. I've seen ones for mediocre items spiral wildly out of control (a hint for the ladies: if you have an average pair of worn shoes to sell and want to some bidding action, don't be afraid to be descriptive with some well-planned fibbing, like saying you're a sorority girl and your pumps have spent the year being passed from sister to sister as they wear them to bars and have beer spilled on them), and I've seen some fantastic items sold for a lot less than the seller deserved. These dark brown size 10 Rogue boots were one half of a Buy It Now auction where I walked away with two pairs of trashed and abused boots for a paltry $10. It was probably the best purchase I ever made in regard to this hobby.
