EBAY GEMS




eBay users tend to fall into two camps, those who love looking through all the random odds and ends on offer and those who just don't know where to begin.

I was very unsure about eBay at first until I needed some hen party stuff for my sister's hen do. It was an absolute god send for stuff I wanted and also stuff I didn't know I needed! After such positive purchasing experiences using eBay; making offers, bidding and buying now I now check eBay before buying quite a few different things.

My purchases have ranged from furniture, razor heads, cushion covers, artificial plants and bar accessories, I have been able to source items for much cheaper than the high street.

I think one of the best tips I have had is to make the filters do the hard work for you. If I want something generic and readily available then I narrow my search to 'buy it now' options, whereas for furniture I refined the search criteria by excluding collect only and to see items from UK sellers only as I don't have a car. Through using the filters I have been able to find some absolute bargains, without having to trek to a car boot sale at the crack of dawn in the cold.

My best buy has to be my bar cart. I had been looking for one for ages but due to their popularity was shocked at how expensive they were! Ikea's version was almost £100 and Oliver Bonas' versions are beautiful but at £300 were way out of my budget. I decided to look on eBay and found the one I went on to purchase at a bargainous price of £45 including delivery.

It arrived in great condition and I have had a lot of fun pimping it out, but that is another blog post! What have been your best buys on eBay?
