ebay ~ find, loss and win

last week, i hopped over to ebay as i am want to do from time to time.
....and forgot to BID!!! i slimply forgot to click on that final, 'confirm bid' link. i got distracted or something. $20.00 + shipping. seriously? $20.00 dollars for the pair? and i forgot to place my bid? i could cry.
LOST: pair of vintage, blanc de chine pagoda lamps. i sort of knew when i put my highest bid at $157.97 ...that i might not be the proud owners of these tony duquette-esque beauties. i just flat out lost. they ended up going for a bit over $300.00 dollars.
at last, a taste of victory.....
i finally 'won' a pair of boots that i've been coveting since seeing them on a hip little shop girl up in hollywood. vintage etienne aigner 'riding' boots. lil' bit excited 'bout this ebay nugget.

I have riding boots on my wish list, too. You were so lucky to "win" these.

kerith: i was driving along today and had one of those total *boink* moments....those could have been mine FOR TWENTY DOLLARS.

I was bidding on those same pagoda lamps! I got into a bidding war and then I decided that I can't pay more than $300 for them. Wah! Luckily I found these kwan yin blanc de chine lamps that I won instead. But those pagodas still haunt me.

If you moved back to SF you could wear those boots all year without worrying about the heat.
