    I just happened to log on to EBay last week, just to browse offers on rotary blades. I had just priced ONE 45mm blade at JoAnn's for $10.49---GULP! That's what prompted the inquiry.

    Wouldn't ya' know the first listing was for items up for bid that expired in 7 minutes and no bids. I dutifully keep a vigil, updating every 30 seconds, waiting.....waiting.....no bids.....it's getting closer........down to two minutes.....I made my move at less than a minute and a half and bid the starting price. I couldn't believe it! NO OTHER BIDS----I WON!!!!!!!!

    I just got the package today. :mrgreen:

    Oh, what was that? What did I get? That would be so cruel if I didn't tell you, huh??

    I got 2 five blade packs of 45mm , 5 single 45mm blades, 2 28mm blades, AND a new, long lasting 60mm chenille blade. All Olfa products, brand new in original packaging.

    For how much??? Ready for this----$15.00! BAM!!!!!! AND-----FREE SHIPPING!!!!

    Oh, my! I've just got to sit and catch my breath for goodness sakes!


    Only here can I carry on like this and someone NOT think I'm totally crazy! But for those that do, watch it! I KNOW how to find you!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Ebay is the best place for rotary blades!!! I've gotten a couple of great deals myself for them.

    So now you can figure out what you saved on blades and spend it on fabric!!! That's how my mind works anyway! LOL

    WOW!!! Great! I scored on E-bay, too! Only mine were tubing for the CPAP machine I use for sleep apnea! I got 3 tubes for $18.00. Had I gone to medical supply house it would have cost $15.00 for ONE! Actually, they would have charged my insurance company $30.00 each and only allowed me to have one at a time and then, because I have $500. deductable, I would have paid $90.00 for three!!!!!

    Good deal.....now, excuse me, I have to check out E-bay!
