I'm a fool! Missed eBay auction.

Just needed to vent. I've been casually looking for a second tag a long. After reading the forums the other night for a couple hours decided to do like others and browse the local listings for bikes with folks who'll allow local pickup. Well I found a cycle design tag for $0.99 with $45 shipping. Perfect, right? No one will bid bc shipping is so high. I contact seller ask for free pickup. Well i must have read his response in my sleep because I think I'm still waiting to hear back (auction ended today). So I'm at work, see email don't forget about watched item 3 hrs prior to end. I'll admit I already assumed defeat and forgot about it shortly after. When I checked my email again 6 hrs later I went to eBay, sure enough 0 bids. Went to my message and saw his response 'will waive transport fees. No problem'

Made me so sad. Oh well.

I have missed out on auctions like that before. Contact the seller and offer to buy it outright or see if they are going to to re-list it.

I did contact him and offered $10 and pickup. No response yet. I also have a feeling if he relists it he probably would set a minimum knowing he could have lost it for $0.99 Still watching though.
