Ive yet to bid on any pipes or tobacco, because I will admit, I do not like bidding on eBay. If Buy It Now! Isnt an option, I usually pass it by. I was bidding on this customer Cameron figure based on the Terminator The Sarah Conner Chronicles character. It got upto $50 and it was like 1a so I went to bed. I woke up and lost by FIFTY CENTS! I was livid. I bid $75 to cover any nigglers, he bid $75.50 ARGH!!! My last eBay purchase was the hood scoop for my Mustang and was advertised as brand new after market. It arrived, was resealed (apparently someone returned it) and was missing pieces that basically made it junk. Since GT hood scoops that bolt on are $700 from Ford, $150+ at junk yards..I figured this $85 scoop might be worth saving by having my body shop supply replacement parts (3 clips and the seal) - which they did. I emailed the seller for a $20 discount. They refused and Im still waiting on eBay to help... Now if I see an auction for a briar cavalier pipe with a nice large bowl that isnt $150, Id bid on that. Buy It Now! is your friend.
