I decided to make wreaths for next Christmas and bought the basic wreath half price late in December, hoping to get to the stores to get wreath making supplies (picks, flowers, etc) half price. I missed all this and did not make it to the stores in time. When searching online, I could not find anything I could afford at the online stores. Therefore, I went on Ebay thinking I could get the stuff for a lot less money. (I live on an island and am near no stores.) BOYYYYY was I wrong!! Since then I have learned that they use the word "Vintage" for old stuff that is falling apart. They sell things that should be thrown in the trash and they are charging ridiculous amounts, which makes you think it is actually worth something. By the time I ordered things and paid all the Shipping & Handling fees, I had spent more than if I had bought things new at the store. Since then, I found a good online site that is having a sale on picks, but now I cannot afford to buy them - brand new, sparkly, and pretty. People are selling garage sale items like they are pristine, valuable items and the pictures are always better than the item actually is!! They are selling pure JUNK!!
