- Lost - Season 1 and Season 2 - great like-new DVD sets (I'm keeping these! It's one of my favorite shows.)
- Rod Stewart - two of the Great American Songbook CDs (these are for eBay)
- Fleetwood Mac - Rumours on CD (okay, probably keeping this too ... sounds of my teen years!)
- Fabulous vintage coffeetable book about Bob Hope and his USO shows (for eBay)
I usually yard sale with my best friend. His interests are art, architecture, and design, and mine are fun vintage items for eBay ... so we don't overlap often! Today he found an arts and crafts style linen chest (for a whopping $10!).
I'm glad that the thrill of the hunt (for Shiny Brite ornaments and Liddle Kiddle dollhouses) is back.

It's a gray Spring day here, and I've spent a little time browsing eBay auctions. I am seeing a lot of auctions with items in "as is" condition, with no returns offered. This troubles me, and needless to say, I skip by those auctions. Why do sellers include this in their terms? To me "as is, no returns" means:
"I am just putting this lot of books out and photographing them. I haven't gone through them to see if there is highlighting, or missing pages, or even a piece of gum stuck between pages. You need to send me a list of 20 questions to answer if you care about condition."
I just think this is very, very bad business. As a powerseller who also buys on ebay, this policy does not inspire confidence.
Any thoughts on the "as is" policy?
