Missed out on a bundle of four baits, not happy plus I missed out on a Baby Blossom as well (I need three of them to use as a base for three ponies in that pose)

Just recalled this one- another online Goodwill auction. A bunch of G1 books, a few G3 too (duplicates because they’re still super common in my experience) and even some UK comic annuals (I’m in the US). And the reason I bid in the first place- a German language version of “The Magic Rainbow!” RIP mein hertz.

Unless it's a OOAK, there's always more. :)

Thank you, it just sucks when they start reasonably priced then become out of reach or you miss them.

I think if a pony starts super cheap, and the price creeps up, that's not something to stress about. You submitted the price you wanted to offer - someone was offering more. A cheap starting price does not guarantee a cheap ending price. I agree it can be frustrating to lose an auction by a dollar or two, but I always say to myself: you never know what the maximum amount of the highest bidder was. It could have been tens of dollars more than what the winning price was - something I would definitely not have offered.

That said, I do get grumpy when I lose an auction for reasons caused by me, or by the circumstances. Like forgetting about the auction, thinking twice/saving it for later, oversleeping, internet connection issues, or simply waiting for the seller to reply about shipping (when they do not ship to where I live). All of these happened to me more than once in the past. Some still make me sad even after months, or probably even years, but I try not to think about them, because that won't change anything other than my mood, for the worse.
