    10 years today since Ebay uk launched.

    What do you buy / sell? Any bad experiences?

    I've bought console games, mainly old un's dead cheap, music (mainly hard to find cds), Thai boxing stuff, but best of all my arcade machine, bargain at £65 fully working and gameboards for it (from £5+). Oh and my BMX, brand new Freeagent Hellcat for £99 (rrp £249) from a dealer that was closing down.

    Ain't sold owt yet, but am planning to strip my old BMX (late Ultra Burner in VGC) for 'old school' parts after seeing what stuff goes for. Best of all I got the Araya wheels that came on it, near mint cos I took em off and put Z rims on instead.

    ah ebay!
    sold loads of old cds, dvds on there, some mixers, old turntables.
    generally brought hard to find vinyl on there.

    my mate recently sold 10 20pence coins for £41 he stated that there was no date on the queens side. which there wasn't, but they werent the valuble ones the buyer thought they were getting!! scammed!! he seems to have gotten away with it tho!

    most of the stuff i've bought on ebay i've resold on there....
    guitars, amps, effects pedals, keyboards, serato....
    all bought and sold back at a very minimal lost.
    even made a profit on some of them.

    I am still yet to buy or sell a thing on ebay, online selling and buying from other people doesnt appeal to me, too easy to get ripped off

    Sold my old studio kit off, and regretted it..fortunalty you can get harware samplers etc cheap now.
    Sold off as many tuens I didn't want as I could, but it was a mission.
    Bought some tunes that came in 2 pieces or not at all, but it all got sorted out.
