i've fallen off the wagon




I can go months without opening ebay. Months. I practically forget it's there. Really. But then it's like once you start with the searching and clicking and watching and bidding, things go down hill v. v. quickly.

It's been a while ebay, but you are back in my life. And it's not good. It started with a simple search for wallpaper to line Melanie's invite envelopes. And now I am deep in the vortex.

I'm in desperate need of a vintage french grain sack to hang in my kitchen. (or lentil sack. that would work too). And you can always use a midcentury end table. Plus we ruuullllly need a new lamp for our bedroom. That one is super cute but there are already 19 bids... don't these people understand the last minute sneak attack??? They are driving the price up for everyone.

French straw ticking? Surely I will need a length of such cloth at some point in my life.

2 of my current favorite sellers:

simplymod-auctions
Antique Vintage European Textiles

I completely understand, I could (and do) spend hours on ebay looking for things.

Mary said...

Ow, I am the same way. I can go months, months! Then I'll spend an hour or two scouting around.

I'm the same way. I can avoid it for months and then I go on for some innocent reason (usually to check for price comparisons on something I bought thrifted) and I'm lost.

Oh yes, bidding on ebay is terribly addictive but also so much fun!

hahaha this is too funny. And this is why I never go on ebay... though your lovely finds are awfully tempting ;)
