We Love eBay – an Ode to eBay

Happy New Year everyone!! The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind. We drove to Portland to spend the holidays with our families and then had some relatives in the hospital and other relatives having lots of health issues so we spent our time primarily in the ICU and the cardiac unit. We did have a very nice visit with everyone and I am happy to report the relatives that were in the hospitals are all out and doing just fine now. We didn’t really have a chance to get out and do anything “fun” but a day before we left to head back to California we did manage to make one stop at Main Street Collectors Mall and Soda Fountain in Milwaukie, Oregon. On our way to the antique mall my husband starts to play the Weird Al Yankovic eBay parody song “eBay” that Weird Al performed live in 2003 at eBay Live!! Just listening to the lyrics had us in hysterics as we could so totally relate to it. Many of you who follow my blog know that we love eBay and are eBay Power Sellers. I should have known that this was going to be the start of “eBay themed goodies”. We got to the antique mall and there were a lot of shoppers there. I walked around and found nothing but my husband found this really cool eBay game from 2001 by Hasbro and I just had to have it. We left the mall and made a stop at the local Barnes & Noble. I picked up the latest Romantic Country magazine and on our way to the register I spot this “Crap I Bought on eBay” book and couldn’t believe someone actually got it published…I mean a book of strange and weird crap someone bought on eBay? Well, yes, I had to have it!! To finish off our unexpected eBay themed finds, I also find a book called “I Married an eBay Maniac”. I just can’t explain it but it seemed that our one-day of  a couple hours of fun led us to “eBay” memorabilia and lots of fun and laughter. So, to all of you that sell and buy on eBay, here is an ode to eBay with Weird Al’s song and we wish you all a great 2012!!!
