My last purchase on eBay was a few days ago. It was an incomplete set of coloured pencils in a wooden box. The set cost about half what a new set would and it is fairly easy to replace the missing pencils if I need them. I love to buy second hard art supplies as often they have had very little use and they are more affordable than new.
yes, I SO agree Bryony re the commission - as if they dont earn enough and what a nerve to charge commission on a postage charge! I also hate using Paypal as it is them and who knows what else they now own!
