Sorting through what's worth it and what's crap on eBay is no simple feat, and since we spend almost our entire day on the Internet anyway, we figured it's about time we lend a hand. So, we present you with our ever-so-often, when-the-moment-strikes column Spotted on eBay, in which we'll do the dirty work of hunting down the best finds for you.
Remember the now-defunct label Phi? A tipster just let us know that eBay user eauctionmoney is selling an entire lot of the label's shoes. He or she is looking to hawk seven pairs—all of them are brand new with the box, and all of them are really gorgeous.
The starting bid for the heels is $24.95, with a Buy It Now price for only $34.95; for the boots, the starting bid is $39.95 and the Buy It Now price is $49.95. Right now, they all have zero bids. Considering that our seller informs us that the heels originally went for $495, and the boots for $695, we'd say that's a steal. The auction on these puppies ends on Tuesday, so better get moving.
Found something worthwhile on eBay? Let us be the judge of that: Send us your best fashion finds, unless of course you don't want any competition on the bidding.
