Great to know about this site Rob, thanks. Nice to have a free competitor for the big gun and a narrower focus of auctions so things will be easier to find

I hope a lot more people will register and try out Hobby-Bid soon. More sellers would be great, but I hope for buyers too. I've already bought one item through Hobby-Bid (Dremel bits) and have made a couple more bids.

Etsy has proven it's possible to chip away at eBay's monopoly, but that's oriented more toward homemade jewelry, doll clothes, quilts ... you know, girl stuff. Sure would be nice if Hobby-Bid could do the same thing for boys.

People could give that site a try.Remember,even E-BAY started by selling Pez candy dispensers before they made it big.That means it was a good place to auction off for the little guy before they got greedy.:p

I put up a handful more kits tonight, all with low opening bids. They're kits my dad got at garage sales, not figure kits, usually in good shape and buildable. They won't sell for much and wouldn't even be worth my time to put on eBay, because I'd end up paying out more than I'd take in.

I now have bids on two of my auctions, and also have a bid on another kit.

I thought that I would enjoy Hobby-Bid.com when I first went there, but here lately, they haven't had anything worth wild when it comes to models. Maybe 4 or 5 models at the most and nothing to write home about! I've been checking that site out for several years now and I am sorry to say, but it has been a real let down for me here lately!
