I am desperate to find some Pooh figures and haven't found them on the Disney Store in my town or online at Disney.com. Looks as if I will have to go to eBay which has what I am looking for. But help! I have no expericene at all with this and I am very nervous about shopping this way. Please send me your tips on what I should be careful of, what to check out when ordering from someone, etc. Does it matter if they are not in the US? Is it better to pay by PayPal (never used this before) or money order? Please help this newbie as I need this for my GD's B'day cake. Thanks so much!
I buy a lot from Ebay. It's better to pay with paypal because you have a protection for non-sending items. I got a refund from Paypal because someone didn't send the item I paid for. And when you buy from other countries, watch out for shipping charges, ask before bidding. I've found lots of bargains there!!! Have fun!!
Ask about shipping charges first if they are not stated in the auction.Pay with Paypal..fast ,easy ,convenient.
Be sure to check the sellers feedback. This is a good way to find out if others have had problems with them, and what they did to rectify the situation. If they have 100% feedback, then chances are they are reputable.
Thanks so much, I'm off to shop!
I pay with paypal all the time. It's faster and safer. Also, check to see if they have any neutrals in their feedback. They don't affect their overall feedback score, but it tells you that someone had some sort of problem with them.
Have you looked for the figures at stores like Walmart? I found some in the toy department in the baby section. They are small and good for a cake.
bakeries sell the figures that they use to make their cakes. a friend bought some from our local grocery store and then had me make the cake.
CONGRATS SAMSGRANNY YOU ARE A FANATIC
Thanks, darlin' I do appreciate it!
I have found the best thing to do is to check the feedback, not just the overall score either, actually read the other buyers comments. Also check shipping. Oh yeah and don't be afriad to browse through, just because the first thing you see is what you want you might be able to find it cheaper down the page. I bought my car among other things on ebay and was quite satisfied in the end. I also found this website if you are thinking of ordering online:
Not sure if that is what you are looking for but the balloon thing is adorable.
Love-a-lot, thanks so much for the link. That pooh balloon IS adorable. I may have to rethink my whole cake now!
No problem, I actually had the site saved for some other cake decorations and I thought hmmmm I wonder. And sure enough they have something-lol Let's us know how the cake comes out-best of luck with it.
