    You could browse the "what I'm selling on ebay" thread here and see who makes the cut insofar as what you consider nice stuff. Many folks who post here also post their listings there.

    Nice, thanks for the inclusion! I don't spend much time on reddit, where do you post your roundups?

    I generally post them to /r/frugalmalefashion, with the angle "all buy it now, all under $75", since, well, they're about frugal male fashion.

    /r/malefashionadvice would be better, but there was some discussion as to whether they belonged in that subreddit or not, and I decided not to push my luck since the whole thing is a thinly-veiled ad for my site anyway.

    I also have a weekly email blast that I'm still toying with the format of, but for right now is similar. People seem to REALLY like buy it now, as long as the price is good.

    You should add @GMMcL 's accounts. I can't remember the names. I think repeatbusiness is one of them. Thought he had another?

    PS: I use your search site all the time. Thanks for the amazing resource!

    I wouldn't complain if you added me as well - not everything is under $75, but I like to think that higher-priced stuff ranges from "a deal" to "reasonable"....

    eBay user name "dljpdx".

    Checked your blog - interesting cross-section!

    Added - the under $75 is strictly for the reddit crowd, I'm MORE than happy to have people buy pricey things.

    Yeah, you can tell I sort of alternate between "make it another style blog and post pics" and "write guides on things you know about, dummy. There's a million and one style pic blogs already."
