So, today I took delivery of my worn-once-but-in-perfect-nick Bordello shoes. Bought on eBay for £20. Current RRP of £65.99.

Previously I have managed to snag an iCandy pushchair with a RRP of £850 for £60 and a £140 balldress (purple one on portfolio) for £14.

What have you guys and gals managed to source that has made you happy? I love a good bargain!

I bought an ilevel 379 dagger off the AH for 50g, I assume the seller had meant 5000g but made a typo, and I sold it for 8000g. Still, not against the TOS.

Any mad smiles to anyone who gets that!

Last year I got one of these: the Silver chair from Interstuhl (Alan Sugar sits on one in 'the Apprentice' and 'M' in the recent Bond movies if you're trying to place it).

I paid less than £400 for mine when the list price is £2,600+.

That did make me smile

just bought a antique cabinet today with a potential profit of 300-400 quid on it . Just trying to get in to the antiques trade, think its a pretty good start

Crikey - some seriously good bargains to be had then!

SocialDisaster - I'm going to have to start playing WOW now, just so I can reclaim my name! Haven't played it to date for fear of becoming ridiculously addicted!
