plates & pillars on ebay

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
i was thinking about getting these... it looks like it would be pretty sturdy once put together... i won't be using all the plates but at least 4 of them so do you think it would be worth the price? total, it's like $75... i like the crystal pillars... let me know what you think (and thanks to lisa for the avatar) icon_smile.gif

There's a four tier on here in their other items, $29.99 but it closes in 4 hours or so, did you see that one? If you aren't needing all those levels, the smaller one might work. Janice

On Page 4 of sellers other items there is another 4 tier that ends in 3 days. Page 10 shows a 3 tier set, its $24.99 at Buy it Now, or auction ends in 11 days. There are probably more, I didn't go all the way through, there are 900 or more items, did you look at them all? Sure lots of stuff here. Janice

So you ladies get a lot of things from ebay? I have looked at different stuff no ebay but I've always been afraid to order. It is easy? What do I have to do? I could spend hours on there just looking! I have started going to yard sales to find old cake books & pans & anything having to do with cake decorating. So far I haven't found anything icon_sad.gif

Greencargirl... I love your avatar!! That is a pretty green!

TC - Ebay is a girls' best friend. Learn it, it's easy and simple, but be careful to check feedback on all sellars as I've been ripped off a few times from people - it's a scary world but generally it's safe and I only pay through paypal that way you have a guarnteed receipt of payment etc. It's simple, if you go to ebay and register you'll be all set and also go to paypal to set up an account - let me know if you have any questions as I am an ebay Goddess icon_smile.gif

I agree with all the tips on buying from eBay, but in addition, be sure to do your research on what items might be going for elsewhere, so you will know for sure if you've got a good buy! Some sellers really like to stick their buyers with high shipping, so you have to kinda watch that too. I love shopping eBay, and have bought quite a few pans, some magazines, etc. from them...just do your comparison shopping! For instance, I've recently wanted to purchase a cake icer that comes from England, people are paying way too much on eBay, it is cheaper to buy from Sugarcraft uk direct. Janice

That stand is sold by wilton for $47 could be a little more now as that was a 2003 year book price

I shop ebay all the time. I make sure I compare prices on ebay to the cost of the item in my local cake supply store.

I bought tall tier cake stand by wilton on ebay for $37.99 and after shipping costs my total was $48. I think this is a good price b/c at my supply store it would have been $50 plus after tax.

Majority of the cake decorating products I own came from sellers of ebay. I just won a 2003 year book for $3.

I LOVE EBAY!

There is no fee to join. Once you bid ebay will send you a confirmation via email to confirm your bid. During the bidding process, if you are outbid ebay will again notify you that you've been outbid.

You can create a watch list on ebay as well. Just add items to your watch list and near the end of the auction ebay will let you know how much time is left on that particular item. I create watch lists for most of my items b/c I'm not quite sure if I want to buy it.

You have to pay first then you will receive your item.

I haven't had many issues with ebay. Once I didn't receive an item that I won and the seller gladly refunded my money. You have to make sure you read all stipulations that the seller list about the item b/c some sellers will not refund money regardless of the situation.

In the search field I just typed in the word "wilton" and over 900 different items came up. Sometimes more than that! You will get addicted.

There are other cake items on this site as well other than Wilton products. Magic line, pampered chef, and other misc items. At times I can buy a case of cake boxes and boards. You can even type in cake stands in the search field and more than just Wilton cake stands will come up.

Good Luck!
