bidding war

i'm currently the high bidder on this great little mid-century modern chair on eBay. i'll post a pic of it whether i win it or not (fingers crossed it's the former) cause it's got such great style.

i've not yet purchased furniture on eBay (please, no horror stories) but the freight shipping charges seem reasonable, considering it's being sent from middle america and is an awkwardly shaped item.

the auction doesn't end for a few more days and the thought of having to wait that long to see if i win is nearly driving me insane. what's driving me even crazier is wondering how much higher than my current bid il'l have to go to win it. for those that have shopped on eBay for a coveted item you hear me when i say one's absolute-highest-okay, really THIS is my highest-bid changes the closer the end of the auction approaches.

let's hope it doesn't come to that.

  1. I never really liked the auction-style of ebay. I tried to buy stuff a couple times, and I'd be winning up until the last minute and then I guess people use those programs to put in higher bids at the last possible second and I'd lose out. =(

    Good luck with the chair!!
