Same here. I always wait until there's 1 minute last, and then bid the absolute maximum I'm willing to pay. I'm sure sellers hate when people do that (no one contributing to the bidding wars!), but it's gotten me some great deals .

Re: Just a rant.

I don't even place bid until the last 30 seconds of an auction. But usually use a sniping service to bid even later than that so I wouldn't really worry.

Haha, I had NO idea there was a service for bidding! That's so sneaky
They sold for $23! I forgot that I also included 6 BG newborn inserts...so even with $10 shipping, I think my buyer got a pretty good deal! And I'm happy that I got to de-stash for a little extra PP...alls well that ends well, right?
Thanks for the eBay enlightenment, ladies!
