white elephants

Of the four things I put on ebay this time last week, one of them will actually sell. In fact, it's had 2 bids so far, and it's still got another hour and a half to go. Now that may not sound so exciting to you, but I had these visions of using ebay as a way to get rid of some of my unwanted stuff and maybe make a little bit of money at the same time. This time last week to test the water I put on four things, and for most of the week they've been just that - four things with no interest and certainly no bids. My hopes of getting rid of all that junk were dashed.
But wait, at the eleventh hour (or should that strictly speaking be the 166th hour (out of 168 hours)) someone actually seemed to want my item. And then, no wait it couldn't be.... a second bid... wonders will never cease. Who knows where it might end. Faith in humanity is restored. Although I'm not sure I'll bother putting anything else on, Amazon is a much better place to sell....
