Why I LOVE Ebay today...

Usually I could fill a large sized spiral notebook on the subject of what I dislike about Ebay. But today I am focusing on the positive. I've been looking for this little light-up nose Santa for a while. My grandmother wore one in the 1950's, as did most grandmothers I think. Oh, they are available everyday on Ebay, but generally bring $20.00-$35.00 each. Yes folks, $35.00 for a little piece of 50's plastic. (Though it is almost a sin for me to complain about that since I actually sold a little piece of 50's plastic this week for $95.00.) Anyway, I've been watching for a while, and the prices have dropped as a result of the weak economy..and today my Santa finally arrived, costing exactly $7.24, and most of that for shipping. So I will be twinkling for Christmas this year :)

Rogie; I mean doesn't this pin just scream "Who's your Santa???" Want me to start looking for one for your Mom?? :)

Risley: Hey, careful there. Some of my very best and dearest friends are gay guys! But honestly, I've been called waaay worse. (LOL)
