Eben’s Favorite eBay Experiences:

"I have bought and sold many things on eBay over the years. My favorite purchase was a postcard that appeared by chance on my homepage feed and happened to include a picture of my grandmother’s house by the sea that I remembered from my childhood. My favorite sale was some years ago, when I sold my Saab on the UK site. The man who purchased it wanted a car to take a driving tour of France. He then sent me pictures of the car as he drove it around the most beautiful parts of the French coast and countryside. For me, eBay is full of surprises and connections."
