Favorite eBay Experience:
"Saved Search. I am always on the lookout for vintage posters, fashion collections that sold out in stores, collectible sneakers, and vintage fashion and furniture. I have over fifty saved searches, ranging from “Prada nylon suit” to “swiss style poster.” Every day I get emails for all the new arrivals that hit eBay’s shelves within my saved searches. It’s like having a personal shopper pulling what you care about most from the billion+ listings on eBay. It’s addictive."
