The cheapest pair of boots

Okay, guess how much these cost me...


ONLY $1!!! I'm not kidding you.

I was browsing around eBay and I saw these pair of Underground creeper boots being auctioned starting at $1. I put in my bid, and strangely enough no one else bid on top of me. I won them for $1, with $14 postage.

I know that Underground boots generally cost at least $150 AUD, more like $200 due to the weak Australian dollar at the moment. I felt really sorry for the seller, I think he was expecting more money. He should have put a minimum bidding amount. When the boots arrived, I saw that he paid $34 dollars for shipping, so I felt even more sorry for him. Poor bloke.

Hey, at least I got nice shoes.

I get lucky like that on eBay occasionally too. Generally, not so much with the postage though. Our dollar is about as lousy as yours these days so I stay off there - too depressing when I figure out what something's really going to cost me.

They are nice shoes! :)

Score! That's awesome! A wonderful treat for Halloween. :D
(I guess the seller got a rather expensive lesson about eBay.)

Oh gosh! What a find! I love Underground shoes, but would never be able to afford them, guess it does pay to check ebay!

That's awesome for you! But you can contact the shipper and offer to make up the difference in shipping...I bet he'd appreciate the sentiment! enjoy them!
