eBay purchase

I was browsing eBay and came across this sport coat. They claim it is a Brooks Brothers wool-cashmere blend. I thought it looked good, was my size. So I bid on it. I actually had to raise my bid, but I wound up getting the jacket for about $70 – that includes the shipping.

I am pleased with the purchase. The jacket is in excellent condition and has a very nice soft feel to it. It arrived quite wrinkled because of the packing. I hung it on the rack expecting to take it to the cleaners for a cleaning and pressing.

When I came back to it a few hours later, all the wrinkles were gone. That’s usually the sign of a good fabric.

I've gotten quite a few nice items on Ebay and have been pleased with everything. Let me try to remember some of the items:

1. About 300 issues of Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine - about $100 total

2. About 20 different Art Buchwald hardbacks for about $50.

3. About 20 different John Saul and Dean Koontz hardbacks for about $50.00

4. About 113 paperpack romance novels for Nora - about $80.

5. Several different books on writing.

6. About 50 different V.C. Andrews paperbacks - $30.

7. Two Orrell Rugby jersys - $30.

If you have something to sell there is always a buy on Ebay. I've even thought about selling some items on it, but haven't done so yet.
