Extra-Large Ebay Extravagance

Right now we're helping a friend scour the depths of Ebay for a decent Nelson-esque slat bench. Personally, we've never been that big on buying big on Ebay. Relying solely on photos and an unknown vendor makes us hesitant about plunking down a great big wad of virtual cash. But, after hearing all kinds of large-scale success stories, we're starting to change our tune.

Jump down to tell us about your most indulgent Ebay win and to see our one crazy splurge...

We bought a reclining mannequin on Ebay a few years ago. We bid on her on a whim, due purely to the novelty of her pose. Sometimes it's hard to fit her into the decor (as she's about the same size as a large coffee table) but she's still with us and the transaction showed us that buying big on Ebay can pay off.

So what's the biggest thing you've ever bought on Ebay? Did it work out or are you sticking with the knickknacks?
