Bidding went crazy August of last year. Too many newbies registered on ebay at the same time. Hmm, it's a good time to list.

Had to edit this, although I will repeat some of the last. eBay is an auction, not a retail store. It's a place we all go to find things we love that we cannot find on the open market. Sometimes we all pay too much for an item...sometimes we pay less than expected. It's a toss of the coin and in the end, it's a wash.
No one is exploited...one places a bid based on their economic level and their desire for an item.
No prices are set...every one has a choice...you bid what you can afford.
If you don't like it, stay away from it. I sell AND buy, and I enjoy doing both. What's too much for you might be very reasonable for me. It's all up to the bidder.
Bottom line, it's fun, as long as it's fair and honest.

WE JUST HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HOW THE SUPPLY AND DEMAND IMPACTS ON THE PRICES AT CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR AND BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED ABOUT IT INSTEAD OF OUTRAGED.
DON'T FORGET THAT IT'S WORLDWIDE AND WHAT IS CHEAP IN YOUR COUNTRY ISN'T ALWAYS AVAILABLE IN OTHER PLACES, NOT TO MENTION THE LAND DISTANCE ONE HAS TO TRAVEL TO FIND 'A BARGAIN' IF ONE DOESN'T WANT TO USE CREDIT CARD TO PAY AND SEND.
ALSO, NOVICES ARE JUST AS GOOD TO HAVE AROUND AS THE 'MORE EXPERIENCED', SHALL WE SAY. HOWEVER, SAYING THAT, THERE ARE ALSO ALOT OF 'SHARKS' WHO PREY ON THE 'NEWIES', OF WHICH, I WOULD SAY, WE HAVE ALL BEEN VICTIMS OF AT SOME STAGE - AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO RATTLE ME AND MAKE ME FEEL RIPPED OFF. SAD TO SAY, THERE ARE SOME RELATED TO THIS SITE, BUT I THINK OVER TIME YOU WORK OUT WHO THEY ARE. YOU JUST HAVE TO WATCH WHAT YOU SAY HERE AS IT'S FOR EVERYONE TO SEE.

How very sweet of your husband! Thanks for sharing that with us, you are lucky to have such a thoughtful husband!
The giraffe is a lovely solid, it was priced well and sold out fast, it cannot be found at the CCS and I don't think your husband over paid for it because there were others bidding too so more than one person wanted it- classic supply and demand.
It's all about what you love and what you do for love. If anyone wants a solid that bad and can afford it then I say "go for it!" I have overpaid for solids many times but they make me happy and I am glad to have them.
Enjoy your solid.
This one because of how you got (from your husband) is priceless!

We have many , many that we have overpaid on and would bet that everyone here has also.
The way I figure it you overpay on one , find a bargain on another and it averages out.
