    Default For bargain hunters:misspelled items,no photos available etc.

    I have just won a big bottle of Fendi Life Essence in an online auction.The best Buy It Now available was six times the amount I payed.The item was listed just as Fendi,with no more info.Searching the item by its full name (and receive a notification when such an item is available) would not yield the expected result.
    Last year,I had won a big bottle of DK Unleaded for a fraction of its current price.The listing contained no photo but the item was perfectly described.I am positive that the lack of the photo kept the price low.
    Do you have similar experiences to share?
    It's never too late to mend.

    Yes, I won extremely rare Paloma Picasso LE - Constellation and La Reine at approx. 10 USD each. Only a few bottles were released of these LE in 2000. The Seller was absolutely unaware of the bottles value.

    Interestingly, discovolante, when I had a 2ml vial of Fendi Life Essence I thought it was a great smelling scent that would be perfect for a hot european country . Hope you enjoy it

    well, sometimes it works, and sometimes is not.
    I bought discontinued perfume Caline by Jean Patou for the fraction of the real price.
    It was misspelled Calime. But picture was true Caline.

    I`d never will buy vintage perfumes without pics.
    I should see if the juice is not dark, there`s no residue on the bottom, it`s not a factice, etc... Should be boxed too.
    Sometimes it could be resolved by asking questions, sometimes not.
