[Buying] I need to buy stuff, but where to begin?

    I haven't bought anything nice and rare in a while. Partly because what i like is a bit limited in scope, and partly because the flood of EM items over the past couple years is a bit daunting to delve into. So maybe some of you guys who have something for sale can suggest your wares to me? I like pictures btw, so post em if you got em.

    What I am looking for:
    Cute, deco items
    No armor or weapons
    Stuff that glows or animates
    Things within my price range (under 100m per item unless I just love it)

    For a while I was into crafting server births - basically stuff like those stacked ingots in a range of metals, knitting, and the like. Things you can put in a nice home. I don't particularly want something that has a dozen different flavors, the temptation to collect them all plus the futility of having a complete set would drive me nuts. So I don't want a full set of mesanna cream pies or easter eggs. An exception to that rule is for things I already have started collections of:

    old school hair dyes
    roses with funny names
    uh theres some other stuff i can't think of right now

    Thanks! I look forward to buying your junk. =)

    Wow...

    I noticed that you included a 1 of 1 Catskills item on your list. I didn't know that unique items had fallen to such a low price, 100-150m range?

    I would have thought that with the actual number of rare books out there that this item would have a premium on it, especially considering it's the only one of it's kind.

    Wow, thank you for doing that Manti! Yeah I do like things that glow and animate. I can stare at something shiny and sparkly for hours. =)


    If it's a dirty name it will probably make me giggle. I have a fairly juvenile sense of humor. ;)

    Probably because he edited it out by the time you read the thread, but it was there....

    I'm sure it was just a slip up on "copy and paste"!

    Hi there Sarsmi,

    at first I did not read carefully but second time I did.
    And because of that I just wanted to tell you that if you have any smith items,crafting server birth smith items or others that you really can't stand to keep stare on.

    You know who wants them !


    Regards
    The Scandinavian
