I try to stay away from eBay. I really do. I love auctions. Live auctions are a real weakness for me. I have to be really careful. Some folks have gambling problems. In a way, I do too. To me, anything you buy on eBay is a gamble. I know and you should too.
Yesterday I was reading my favorite letter related blogs. I came across one — An Inkophoile’s Blog that had a list of links to other blog postings. Of course, since I had some time, I checked them out. When I got to the post on the blog — Does this Pen Make Me Look Fat about their favorite pen, well it made me scurry on over to eBay to check out similar Parker Vacumatic pens! I was just curious. Really!
Well, one thing let to another and the next thing I knew I was looking at restored fountain pens and really drooling over the ones who happened to have shown how the pen writes! I’m watching several auctions right now (one is a Parker Vacumatic). Planning to bid on one or two. I’m hoping to get an Esterbrook SJ series. There are a couple of other types I’m watching, but I’m not sure about them yet. I have to research them a little more. After all, I was watching a couple of Esterbrook LJ series too when I realized that I really don’t want to get something that big right now. So, after these upcoming auctions end, I’ll research and see what else, if anything happens.
Whatever does happen, if I win one, I’ll let you see it when it gets here!
