    Just being a bit nosey here folks and wondering what kind of stuff you all have been searching for, or buying, on ebay. The more interesting, or unusual, the better!.

    I will start the ball rolling, the last thing i bought on ebay was an old car magazine. I remembered reading a particular article which really struck a chord with me the 1st time round (sad, i know!). I knew that it was 'car' magazine, but only had a rough idea when it was. It took a bit of searching to find the right one (turned out to be april 1990), but i found it!.

    Last thing i searched for was old russian watches, which i have a bit of a thing for(!). I think they are kinda cool, very retro, and best of all, in most cases, cheap!.

    I often buy Dc comics like green lantern, a bit of a spoter when it comes to old comics but love collecting them.

    Think I have about 700 up to now lol spoter

    Your making me feel very old James!, i bought my 1st car in 1989! (the year i passed my test). What kind was it?, and was it any good?!.[hr]
    You have to be wary, but there is no doubt there are some spectacular bargains to be had!.
    My youngest son got a kindle at xmas and he had been on at me to get him one of those covers with a built in light. He showed me one he liked on amazon, but i decided to look on ebay and got one exactly the same for a third of the price!.

    First thing- 4 vw campervan key rings.
    Last thing- Nintendo ds for girlfriends daughters birthday. Bought a thunder cats t-shirt once. Still got it and yes I'm a bit mad on vw camper vans.

    I've got t-shirts books DVDs picture canvases. Go to a few shows. Would love to own one but so bloody expensive. Split screens are the best and the dearest.
