Ebay and Honey Bear Socks

I browse ebay and make occasional purchases - mostly dishware - but the high cost of shipping usually causes me to ask myself, "Do I really need this?", and quite often I don't.

I was singing the praises of Ebay yesterday though, as well as a very kind and helpful blog reader who read my post about Michigan Charming Charlie stores being out of the tea-themed Honey Bear socks that Angela McRae blogged about at Tea With Friends.

Jo in Kansas sent me an e-mail informing me the socks were available on ebay.  I promptly went to ebay and purchased them.  They are on their way to my house, and were the original price at Charming Charlie's with no shipping fee. Yippee!  I never would have thought to check ebay, so a huge thank you to Jo!

As a bonus I discovered they not only came in mint green, but pastel pink too, so I got them both!

Raising my teacup to Jo, Angela, ebay, and life's simple pleasures!  
Note to self:  Next time something is out of stock at a particular store, check ebay!


  1. Oooh! I want some pink ones! Haven't found them on ebay yet. What did you look under?

  2. They're no longer available on ebay, but I googled and found a source for you at Fast-zone. I had no idea these socks were sold at so many different places besides Charming Charlie's - Macy's Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, and Amazon. Unfortunately they're sold
    out at most places. They came in the color gray too.

  3. I'll checkout Fast Zone, too! My daughter would love these. Glad you were able to get some.

  4. I found the pink ones here:
