Remember the Arcadia Layer Cake I was considering on eBay, but I figured I'd probably have to pass up because I though it would sell for more than I was willing to pay?
Well, I was right. But instead of going for somewhere in the mid $40 range, like I thought it would (which would have put it on par with most layer cakes at local quilt shops in Australia after I'd added postage) it went for US$77... which is about what you'd pay for a very full flat rate envelope of full price designer fabrics from fabricshack.com
On the other hand, my boot buying has gone a bit better - I didn't win either of the middle of the night pairs, but yesterday I bought a pair from within Australia* for $60 and today the pair that I really really wanted, which had a start bid of $35 and a buy it now option of just under $400, didn't seem interesting to anyone else, so I got them for $35. Sweet, even with $40 postage.
And I'm still pottering away at Vistaprint - today I'm trying to think up some slightly more polite mugs.
And in case you were wondering why I'm posting this when I'd still normally be sleeping in - my car had to be dropped off at the mechanics at nine this morning. It was horrible, I don't know how you all do it.
I'm thinking I might go have a nap.
*It totally bums me out now buying stuff from Australia, because I can't quietly say to myself "in your face, American Dollar" - I feel kinda like I'm missing out on a bargain.
