long time since I made an eBay post ...

But I was happy to get Daughter #1 a new set of shin guards for Karate ... somehow one of hers went missing (we're still trying to figure out how/when/where that happened) and she really does need two for sparring. Unfortunately, the shin guards cost like $35.00 up at Dojo, and I've not been particularly enthused about shelling out that kind of money for them. I'd been surprised, however, at how little "used" martial arts equipment is on eBay ... you would think that there would be a fairly constant stream of stuff from folks whose kids got into classes and then dropped out (our outgrew their sparring gear) ... but there's really not much out there. Fortunately, I was able to find a pair of shin guards that will work for her (OK, they'll be a little large ... they're about an inch or so bigger than her current ones), but I was able to get them, with shipping, for just under $9.00, so about 1/4 of what we'd otherwise have to pay. Go me.

Pokemon cards? Dunno ... she's seemed to have lost interest. She still plays the GameBoy Pokemon games a lot, but the cards seem to have faded (the past couple of years her friends at summer camp were really into them, but I guess not this year). I'd gotten her a bunch of fairly rare holographic cards for either her birthday or Xmas but she has pretty much ignored them, so I figure I'm not going to be knocking myself out trying to find more of them on-line ... although the collector in me is dying over the fact that we've not gotten ANY cards from the past 2 (or possibly 3) new sets!
