The bidding is officially over! My first venture into the world of ebay was successful. Over the past week, I periodically checked the status of my item and was happy to see it slowly but surely climb in price. The best part was the last hour that the auction was open; a few people kept bidding against each other and I kept hitting "refresh" watching the value climb (no, I'm not rich because of this, but I did get a good value for a used item). Overall, the selling process was very easy, and I shipped the item out this morning via UPS. Yes, I am a fan.
