I bid on it immediately because OMG isn’t it adorable! Once I bid on it the site automatically puts it in my “Auctions in Progress” folder. You can also have it notify you by e-mail if you are outbid or if you win the auction.
There are several additional features of this site that make it convenient. For example, once you select an item to view, it provides you with all of the information you need about it: item #, quantity, start/stop auction dates, location of item, shipping and handling and payment method information, bid history, and available photographs. The only seller information that is provided is the name of the Goodwill Store that is selling the item. There are no “persons” that are sellers. Just stores. Here is a screen shot of what it looks like:
Another great feature is the “Personal Shopper” option. This option allows you to save search terms to automatically complete a daily search of items specific to your request. For example, if you want it to look for “Coach Purses” then you put that as your search request, fill in the rest of the information, and it will send you a daily or weekly (you choose) email notifying you of added items to the inventory.
Just as eBay does, you have a log of pending auctions that you can view at any time and you can “watch” an item without having to bid on it.
As stated above I purchased a Fisher Price Horse for my Stinkerbell. Shipping and all it only cost me $20. My order arrived within one week and the item was in excellent condition. I found all aspects as portrayed on the site to be an adequate representation of the item that I received. Two awesome things have come out of this experience for me: 1. I bought something and helped the community at the SAME TIME and 2. My Stinkerbell absolutely LOVES her new toy!
