plates & pillars on ebay - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Sorry,

I didn't get a chance to read this... I went to bed icon_smile.gif
We had severe storms early this morning 4:00am till 11:30am!!!! We got 6 inches of rain!! Everything is flooded, thank God no ones house was flooded!! Anyway... I have looked at ebay & spent a long, long time on it. I have been afraid of doing anything else. I might try it. I just found out that my neighbor shops on it all the time. She can come & help me get set up.
THANK YOU LADIES FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTION!!!

that is the way to do it, honestly... i don't like bidding till there's about 2 min. left because then the price just goes higher... i only bid early if i have to work or something when the auction ends... it's so easy to use... i've had a couple bad experiences with stuff but it's only expected after buying almost 200 things on there... i've sold a lot too... it's almost like a rummage sale in my opinion, it costs a few cents to list an auction (depending on the price you put it at)

Occasionally that might work, especially if you have something other than dial-up internet service, (that's way too slow to wait til the last minute). Now that they have added the "your maximum Bid" option (where they bid for you up to the max bid you put in) you could more easily sneak in with a last second bid, but if you are the current top bidder it protects you! Most of my cake pans, books, and even the poly-foil for cake boards have come from eBay. I haven't found any boxes as yet. It is a fun, practical way to shop!

Have you all seen where the Fire Breathing Dragon pan is going today for about $150???

Hi, I use ebay all the time especially to purchase Wilton products, as I live in Australia and we don't have a very large range of Wilton here and Wilton does not ship overseas so I do most of my shopping on ebay. It is fantastic

If you type in "bakery cake boxes" in the search field a list of items will come up. Just make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page b/c most of them are listed under buy it now.

Thanks, I had tried "bakery boxes" and "cake boxes" but not the two combined. My problem is that I can't store the large quantities, so I guess I'm stuck with going to the "cake store" for my boxes. Thanks again, Janice

I have the same problem at times but one day I found a case of 100 sheet cake boxes for less than $25 dollars so I couldn't pass it up.

Call me a sucker for bargains. icon_biggrin.gif

You can also try searching for cake domes. I've seen these listed--they're the plastic kind Walmart uses.

I like e-bay almost as much as CC. I love hunting for deals, and have gotten tons of cake stuff for cheap! Don't you love the internet?

DON"T DO IT!

i bought that exact stand online at Pattycakes.com for 43$ . If you include shipping (to me anyhow) it comes out to 51.33 total. It is worth it to me to just get the set now and not have to worry about getting anymore later on. hope i gave you this soon enough

here is the direct link, i don't know if it will work:

http://shop.pattycakes.com/SAPPHIRE/Itemdesc.asp?CartId={CDBBCBD8-A6D7-4616-B893-5475753F5848}&ic=301%2D9450&Tp=

if not: go to http://www.pattycakes.com then click on online shopping, then on the left is stands, turntables, servers & caddies.

I had no problem getting my stand from here. gl

I would be lost without ebay-I have about 150 pans now, most of which have come from ebay and I have used most of them at one time or another-have a bid going right now as a matter of fact-actually I am watching 2 of them-I usually wait til just about 1 minute to place my bid-why jack up the price on a counterbid? But do watch all the details and check the feedback-everyones comments on that is soooooo true! And yes, it's very addicting-almost as addicting as this forum!!!
