Yesterday, I broke down for the first time in months and bought something new: this scarf. I love it to death already. It's huge and warm and goes with everything. I sat around all evening wrapped in it, realizing that a strict diet of thrifting makes me want to binge like crazy once tasting a bit of newness. Because I loathe trotting around town on a mission (nothing ever gets found that way anyway), I logged onto ebay for the first time and also made my first bid. Yikes! Regrets began as soon as I confirmed (typical). It's a steal though and I made a resolution to only look as things under a certain price in order to avoid temptation, and in future, not bid the same day.
As I suspect some of you are seasoned ebuyers, what is your experience with online shopping? Do you usually get what you expected, and how much do you purchase this way compared to going into stores?
