Little Thrills ;)

Have you ever sold anything on eBay??  I sort of have - but nothing that sold for a great deal or generated too much interest.  

I like Stampin Up, and in particular I really like 2 stamp sets which have been in the last 2 catalogues, which I have been hanging out to buy if I were suddenly rich, or if they were not appearing in the next catalogue! (Fox & Friends - this is for when I give birth to a boy - I'm going to make totally cute wall art with it!!  And Curvy Verses, which I have just loved since I saw it, but couldn't justify buying!)  Well it happened - I saw the 'outgoing' list and they're both on it! - eek!! So I really wanted to buy them, but they're not the cheapest things in the world, so I decided to sell some of my stamp sets that I don't use so often to pay for them.  5 x second hand sets - 2 new ones?!  I hope so!!  

Anyway, since I listed my 5 sets on ebay a few days ago, I have watched my little list of 'watchers' grow with great satisfaction, and it gives me a little thrill every time I go into it.  Bless craft ladies/bargain shoppers!!! :)  Look! - now my very least cool stamp set even has 3 watchers:


Isn't that exciting?! :)  lol.  The fact that I've listed them for $5 has probably helped - I hope they go up at least a little though!!! And my second least favourite set has the most watchers and the first bid! - What's with that?!  I thought I'd get stuck with that set not selling!! :)  Isn't it exciting?! :)  

James isn't quite as excited as me - so far I've technically only made $5, but I'm pretty sure these lovely crafty ladies are just lying in wait to try to score a $5 stamp set on the day the auctions finish.  I know that's what I would be doing!!  

Fingers crossed!  And in the mean time, little thrills ;)

PS:  You know how they say giving is more exciting than receiving (which is usually true, except that sometimes, you get a gift which rocks so much, it was TOTALLY fun to receive).  Anyway, I have to say that so far, this selling business is much more fun than buying!! lol.
