    woah. shocked you don't know. You go to the original listing, and then scroll down until you see the ebay item number and there is also a "report listing"' and "print" link above it to the right. click print, and you will be able to see what the actual offer accepted was.

    I did not know this either. I'm guessing most people didn't.

    thats what i used to do before someone on here told me about the prink trick. it comes in handy when there are only a few completed listings, so its harder to judge a fair priced given the limited data.

    Nice!

    That's the method I do too, but it doesn't work well if there are 10 in a row that were Best Offer.

    I didn't know the print trick, but I've always seen the accepted amount visiting the ended listing from mobile site.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/360923551918?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 with free shipping since I bought a number of different items. For some reason I thought tyvek and poly were synonyms. When I went to amazon a couple months ago and typed in tyvek bags those poly bags came up. Apologies for the confusion. I also do pack and label everything after it's posted. It's the only way our guest room (read: ebay store room) is kept relatively organized lol.

    It's not clothing, but is thrift related. I need some advice. Someone please talk me in (or out) of this. My wife is absolutely no help ("you don't need it", she says without even hearing what it is).

    I have the rare opportunity to purchase this:

    It's a vintage Pioneer rack stereo system. 1 owner, but the child of the owner acquired it, is selling it and knows absolutely nothing about it. Thing is, besides the reel to reel deck (which I have very minimal experience with), I don't know much about the components either. I know the basics such as to see if things power up, the gauges work and light up, etc. No owners manuals. What's there is there. It's local and a cash sale, so if something doesn't work I'm screwed. Hell, I don't even know where I'm going to put it but I've been lusting after the RT-909 reel to reel deck ever since I sold mine 7 years ago and this has everything. They're asking $1,000.

    Components are top of the line, including a RT-909 reel to reel deck, a Spec 1 pre-amp and a Spec 4 amplifier.

    Should I let this go? Hop on it?
