NEVER have....NEVER do....NEVER plan to....so NEVER will....

....If I can't see it, I don't buy it....

In addition, any evil that is directly responsible for the demise of so many indie record shops, is no friend of mine, ergo, I refuse to support it in any way, shape, or fashion.

Er, but ebay has put otherwise broke individuals in the black. Some in high cotton.

Not to mention the fact that I live at Kirby, Wyoming, which is rural to say the least. Where the hell are the indie record stores around here? The closest is 65 miles at Riverton. The next is 135 miles at Casper. The next is 175 miles at Billings, MT. The next is 300 Miles at Cheyenne. But despite the ebay factor, all of these stores are still in biz. I've bought from all of them, but ebay by far has gotten my biz both buying and selling.

RCG gets my biz as well. Wink

I'm in touch with the world on ebay. So I'm for ebay, all the way.

Fair enough ( and well stated ) and certainly a collector or two that I know have use ebay to both buy and sell.

One of them is still trying to convince me to have a look, but again, " if I don't see it, I don't buy it "

That formula works for me everytime, with no headaches ( or worse, heartaches )

If it's an avenue to get items that you do want, then by all means, be my guest.
Maybe on my 90th birthday, I'll have a look.

Thanks for posting.

    Of course I use ebay, mostly for buying, every now and then for selling too.
    Snatched a lot of good stuff there for reasonable prices. It's truly comfortable, especially if you work long hours and don't have spare time for diggin' [Option 2]
