For the last 10 days, I've been bidding online (not ebay) for a giant lot of bingo cards—not this kind—the kind that have little slide-y windows for each number. It was a ginormous lot and also included loads of other small fun game-y items. Bidding started at $1. YOWZA!
I promptly bit that bait, and even put in a modest maximum bid. For the first week, bidding stayed at $1 with me as the highest bidder.
Little by little, it would crawl upwards, but I was always the highest bidder.
Then someone else got wind of what I considered MY bingo cards. Bidding inched up. I increased my max bid. You know the drill. What I don't understand is why I ultimately picked such a low max bid as my line in the sand. I'm totally kicking myself.
My only comfort is the LAST auction I won: this McCaskey register set (12 double-sided "pages")! Now if only I could figure out how to separate them!
