ebay fun

i'm pretty much addicted to shopping on ebay for vintage clothing. there's something about being able to browse all high-waisted skirts or size 8 1/2 shoes that really appeals to my inner organizer. i also think there's a lot to be said for walking away the "winner" of an auction- the thrill of victory can be a little bit like crack. and, as you probably guessed, i'm coming down off a high right now.

last night i won this great wool jacket. the details at the shoulders and collar totally won me over. the downside is i'm already jonesing for my next fix!



like what you see? check out thefamilyvintage on ebay. but be forewarned, I have my eye on that leather trench...

hasn't ebay been getting pricer and pricer? I saw a no-name polyester dress go for $275 the other day... why?
