eBay is Shoplifting Free

I had to laugh this weekend as my friend Louise, aka: Herbs-Crafts-Gifts made a comment that I loved:
"In eBay you don't have to worry about shoplifting!"

Is that COOL or what?

As sellers on eBay vs. selling at the flea market or a brick-and-mortar store, there are always a couple shoplifters helping themselves to a few items here and there. Many times at the end of the day while unpacking the van, I could recall items missing.

I can remember chasing a guy through the flea market once in Chicago when he lifted something off my table. Then as I was running after him I was thinking at the same time, "What the heck am I going to do if I catch him?"

I mean really, I'm not wonder woman or anything.
I did have some Karate in college but he could hurt me, geeesh!

Once I realized that I stopped chasing him. It was not worth a few bucks lost vs. risking my life.

Louise was right on about her comment.

Think about it ............
No one can reach into our virtual shelves and run off with our eBay items!

Well, I may feel like it sometimes when an item slips through the cracks for 99 cents,, lol
But 99 cents is still better than a chase through the store isles!
