Ebay: give it (another) shot

Like many of you, I like to splurge on stationary. Stickers, stamps, deco tape, washi tape, envelopes… I really have to controll myself. As I would like a lot of stationary on the cheap, I tend to stear away from most Dutch stationary webshops (it is often a little bit more expensive, but you receive it the next day) & browse Etsy first. When I find something I like, I check the price on shipping. Everything over $4 is too expensive for me, since I’ll probably only order a sheet of stickers. Unless it’s a stamp, but as we all know: stamps are forever, stickers are not (when it comes to snailmailing).

So my quest continues to Ebay. I ordered there a couple of years ago, but it turned sour when Etsy showed up. Now I go back and try to find stationary for a reasonable price. Just hit “Buy it now” if you are not into bidding, like me. You will be amazed! Usely shipping is very low and most of the time even free. You can find all kinds of lovely vintage stationary, stickers, postcards..

Here are 11 of the items on my watchlist, items you will probably also find on Etsy or any other stationary webshop, as they are resellers. I have yet to find the source of all this magic, but when the day comes, I will be sure to notify you. Get your paypal accounts out & have a look…
