Obsessed on two fronts

Front #1:  The school auction.  I am doing it again.  Because my middle name is SUCKA!  I have some highly competent and experienced help this year.  I did last year, too, but now I know what to ask for.

Front #2:  ebay.  I sold those shoes that I mentioned in my last post.  Then a high end sweater ($68.50 plus shipping).  That means I've netted around $275.  Not bad, right? So I'm on the HUNT!  for anything that is priced very low and seems like it might be a hit.    The best part is writing the description.  I feel like Elaine on Seinfield when she worked for Peterman.

For example:

"These Black Danskos have a red accent and a sporty adjustable strap at the ankle for a precise fit.  They feature a waterproof padded section around the top of the shoe, leather for the main part of the shoe, and the standard thick rubber clog sole.      

They are in excellent condition.  The sole has no visible wear and the leather is clean and uncreased.  The interior has no sweat or dirt marks.  There was a little dust on the creases on the bottom which cleaned up easily.  If it hadn't been for that I would have said these were NWOT.  

If you're not already addicted to Dansko comfort and style, these shoes will win you over.  They are favorites of nurses, chefs, flight attendants, and anyone else who spends long hours on their feet.  Try these out or supplement your collection!  You can't have too many Danskos"

I don't want to say what I paid for them because maybe you want to bid on them.   I'll say this:  the amount I spent would send you running to the nearest thrift store to find your own bargain. I don't care for danskos, myself, or I'd keep them.  But I'm a wooden sole kind of girl.
