eBay can seem overwhelming with all the unfamiliar terms, abbreviations and acronyms. It's helpful to have what I call, my cheat sheet. I'm sharing it here so you too can understand what the seller said about that item you're dying to buy. (I've been shopping on eBay for over 10 years.)

I even have my own store, Blue Dally Lane. I hope you will drop in and grab a bargain!
