Jenna Mindel here on a cold January morning in Northern Michigan. I'm usually behind the eight-ball when it comes to trends. Ebay is one of the many things that's been around awhile but I'm just now taking advantage of the fun there. And oh, what a dangerous place. LOL.
When we lived in Upstate NY, my husband and I used to go to live antique (and junk) auctions and they were a blast. It was exhilarating to raise a paper plate with my auction number written on it in feverish competition with other bidders, all while trying to land the best deal.
Well, last night I dove into last minute bidding on a couple pairs of snowshoes I'd had my eyes on. But I was outbid and ran out of time on each. But then suddenly, I had a second chance. The seller gave me the opportunity to purchase a pair at my last bid price. I jumped on that second chance even though I'd been given 2 days to think it over. I realized this is much better. No competition, no getting caught up in the moment of bidding, no pressure!
Have a blessed day,
