It was a bidding war...
The item up for auction ?
A VHS of Cinderella. It wasn't just any Cinderella VHS, it was the Mexican VHS with the original Edmundo Santos dubbing !
It originally went for $1.99 + shipping, so around $4 total. There was a bid on it already so I waited for the perfect time to strike... Waiting to the last minutes like I normally do on auctions I placed my bid on the VHS. Out of nowhere, I was quickly outbid and had to bid again. I was then in a competition with two different bidders; These two guys put up a fight and really wanted that tape and it kept going on and on until the end of the auction. Within the last 10 seconds; my blood was pumping, excitement through the roof, I've placed a bid of $36 and the other guys just gave up. After all the high stakes action, I won the auction !
The final price ? : $33 (shipping included)
