    The quilt is very pretty but has some issues on one ring. The seller says she is sending fabric to repair it so she can't be all bad!! I can't blame her anyway cause it was my dumb mistake!!

    If you correct this mistake pronto, eBay WILL fix it. You can follow the steps to retract or correct your bid. Just has to be prompt. You would NOT be obligated to pay the $4,700. If it happened to me, I'd just contact eBay and the seller lickety-split and clear it up. Honestly, $70 sounds good for a nice DWR in good shape.

    I agree that the price sounds good, it was just more than I wanted to tell my DH about...lol. I notified the seller immediately but can't figure out how to notify E-Bay!

    Some time ago I also made a huge bid which was a typo. There is a way to retract your bid, but you have to do it right away. I haven't been on the site for so long that I forget where the prompt button to retract is--but it's there.

    OUCH ! I did not know it was "bidding" I thought it was voting.. Naive yes, I "won" 15 Fenton Glass Slippers. eventually I quit answering the door as the mail man rang the door bell. My husband and kids still kid me. Lots of glass slippers laid at my door step ! Hah !
    My goal was one or two. so embarrassing.

    you were lucky that the highest bid was only 70.00 !! OUCH

    If your highest bid was $4700.00 why did she accept $70.00? Guess I don't understand how the bidding works...

    That was my maximum bid. I was actually bidding $47.00. The max means that no matter how high the bid goes I will not go over $4,700. the high bid was $46.95 and I bid 47.00. The actual high bid was $69.99 so mine didn't count then, but the $4700 kept me in the running.

    Double check every bid you type in before you hit the "Bid" button. Once done, it cannot be undone. You have to go through the Retract Bid process, and it is not really that easy.

    You're lucky this time.
