The problem is, there's really not much they sell that I want to buy, and when there is something, the bidding tends to go up to the point where I chicken out. Like, recently, I was bidding on something far too geeky to mention, and it got to the point where bids spilled over the $300 mark. I instantly ran away from the site like a chicken whose head has been cut off and is undergoing dental torture at the hands of a sinister cabal of foreign-born turkeys. It's not that I couldn't afford to pay three hundred bucks for this thing; it's that my self-image does not currently allow for thinking of myself as the sort of person who would pay three hundred bucks for something on eBay. If the Queen of England were to list Buckingham Palace at the same price, complete with a certificate of authenticity and Bacon's magical bronze head, I would still chicken out and then rationalize it to myself afterwards ("Enh, the shipping costs on that thing would have been ridiculous").
So, today's question: what's the most expensive thing you've ever bought on eBay, assuming you've ever used the site? Are there things you wouldn't buy from eBay, or amounts you wouldn't go above? And if you're a seller, what's the most expensive thing you've ever sold? Please because I must gots to know.
