  • I am not sure if the economy is leveling off or not but I think I would contribute part of your increase to people hunting bargains. More people are shopping Flea Markets and Thrift Stores lately and I would consider ebay a bargain hunters paradise.

  • We have heard that people are coming back for just the reason you mention, but they don't mind spending money either.

    We had an item end just a few minutes ago that we listed for .99 and it sold for over $90. It sat at $20.50 for most of the week and that is where we expected to see it end. It is always such a nice surprise when one takes off like this.

    Of course we have many more that sell for .99 or not at all, but.....

  • Although I had to pay Uncle Sam this year, I know of a lot of people that have received 3-6K back.

    That money flows to different areas that I have seen improving.

    Or maybe that stimulus plan is lightning quick!
