eBay Watch

Does anyone else have alerts set up on eBay for particular names, items related to particular places, etc?

I do.

So far, it’s brought me the following with connections to my One Name Study:

– my own book (!)

– books on poodles, archiving, and ‘Diana Dors: Only a Whisper Away’

– my cousin’s treatise on the ovarian cyst (removal of, 1840s)

– another cousin’s retirement as Queen Victoria’s Consul in Cairo and associated presentation (recorded in the Gentleman’s Magazine)

– a Lott and Walne sawbench!

It’s also a great place to find everything from train tickets to postcards of particular places of interest.

Give it a go!
