I hadn't really considered how the economy might affect Ebay as it has normal retail. About six months ago I came very close to buying an unused set of Seattle World's Fair Frosted Promotional Tumblers that were distributed by Mobil for $70 but I decided I didn't want to spend that much. Today I bought the exact same set (like this) for NINTY NINE CENTS. I almost feel guilty! But that's what he set his opening bid at so I guess it's his fault.
