New Addiction

  1. I must confess-I am addicted to that online bidding site that begins with an "e."

    Since the late '80's I have been collecting "All God's Children" by Martha Holcombe. I have a pretty extensive collection, but have managed to miss several good pieces.

    I found on this bidding site that one can get these figurines for a fraction of what they are worth! I bought 5 of them this week, and am currently bidding on three more!

    Does anyone else on the board collect these figurines, or do you have an addiction to this on-line site? My husband will have a fit when he finds out how many I've bought!

    I don`t know the figurines you collect, but visit that site often...way too often.... I collect Fiestaware, and they always have something I just HAVE to have.....And as long as they have food,water, and a warm lap, my kitties don`t object at all...

    Joey, you're such a smooth talker, and cute to boot. Just for the record, if you weren't so far away, I might take you up on that lap dance. Seriously, I understand how addictive this board is.. Better than any soap on TV. We got it all......conflict, sex, even a few ghosts thrown in from time to time. What a great place to call home. Happy Holidays Joey, your card is in the mail, Duckie VERY slow this year.

    My husband makes muchos deneros by selling computers and parts on the big e.

    I like to buy milk glass pieces. I have found some real deals!

    Me too! But that site does lower the value of the market price, so don't think they really are worth as much as you think. I read an article somewhere about the antique market is a bit depressed because of that site.

    I love that site though!

    I am not addicted to that site but my husband is!!!!! I actually have to stop him from shopping.

    I have bought books and other little things off of the site though. I just love shot glasses and they have plenty. lol.

    I have several M. Holcomb pieces from the mid 90's. My favorites are "Bonnie" with the wagon and dog and "Sally" on the rocking horse. All of them were gifts so I imagine they are common pieces rather that rare. Nevertheless, they look good on the sofa table.

    And unfortunately, I also like e-bay. I am currently bidding on a hard top for my Jeep.
