    Re: Lecky's "Wrinkles" is online

    Hi all,
    
    It has long been my experience that, on average, the final sale bid on E-bay
    is quite a bit higher than the open market sale price. I have been
    purchasing on E-bay for a good number of years and have learned to conduct a
    thorough search elsewhere before committing to a bid. Obviously, there are
    good buys to be had but frankly, I believe, far and few between. Admittedly,
    I was only really taken once - a book with ten pages cut out of the middle -
    but also have knowingly paid inflated prices for things really wanted.
    Sometimes just the competitive spirit drives prices up.
    
    Regards,
    
    Henry
