I just saw the Hot mama pads auction. I want it SO bad. Yet again it is another auction that is ending before the stuff I bid on. All I beg is for no one to bid on the doll and accessories otherwise : I would love to surprise my dd with it.

I just cant get over al the cute stuff I was high bidder on the cherries dress and cuddlebuns for about an hour, then the whole m/l fruit basket set for like 5 seconds. I went and bid on a whole slew of things today and then added up how much it will be if I win it all. DH will have a fit, but dh will have the cutest behind in town and I will have the momma cloth stash to die for

question: how can I tell if I won an auction that closed in the middle of the night? I was high bidder when I went to bed and now I can seem to pull it up. I'm assuming I did not win it. It was the Rebel Basket. I would have gotten some sort of email, right?

Just need to find out so I know how much bidding I can do today!

I was really loving that fruit basket auction - I think it was up last night. I wonder who finally got it- I'm green with envy.

Ok, I know this question was asked before but I wasn't paying attention : Is there a way to up our max bid without outbidding ourselves, so to speak? I am winning an auction I would really like but I don't know if I'll be here this afternoon when it ends, how can I go back in and make my max bid higher?

Virg is sneaking up from behind hoping to win a few things for the babe and family members...

Everybody else has spent all their money, right? I'm gonna get something sweet and blue and prescious today I think...

I've got my special Saturday morning running, er...um, stalking slippers on. :LOL

I think someone said that you can go and put in a higher bid and it will up your proxy without bidding against you. Someone said they took the chance trying it and it worked.

I also wish we could see ended auctions. I really want to know what some of the things I bid on went for.

If you want to see what the items you are bidding for go for at the end, save them to you watched items. The items will remain there after the auction closes and you can see who won and how much it went for. That's how I do it...not sure if there is another way.

Its too late now, but if you put an item on your watch list, then after the auction ends you can click on the item in your watch list and see what it went for.

I talked to dh about it this morning... just sort of "check this out" conversation And since I've shown him some of the really big money auctions, his first question was if I was in it for $400...

um, no... but its worth that much, don't'cha think?

Well I won a custom auction template. Do you think I need to go back in there and make sure I win some fluff? Probably should, or I will be disappointed with myself. I would LOVE the mama pad basket!

Wow! That set is gorgeous Virg! It would be perfect for Jack for next fall, but I've got my eye on something else so I'll leave you to it.

yep, too late. this is driving me crazy! I guess I didn't win it but i just need to know before I bid on anything else. It disappeared from the "your bids" section and I never put a watch on it because I bid on it right away. And I can't find a way to email anyone. back to double check.

oh and virg, that blue knitted set is SO cute.

and angie you have outdone yourself with all your items!

Yay! I got the rocket wipes that I really wanted! It was closing after I went to bed and i had my fingers crossed that no other mama would sneak in and snipe them from me.

I know it's not a 'big' thing like some of the beautiful wool you guys are getting - but I'm really stoked!
