So you find something neat on ebay and bid on it. Then you look at the seller's other items and think, "hmm, this is nice too, and with combined shipping, it won't be too expensive..." You bid on secondary item. then the bidding on primary item gets too rich for you (or you forget to update your bid, or you are sniped) and you end up losing out on on primary item, and ending up with secondary item.
That is how I ended up with a scrapbook of movie star clippings from magazines and newspapers from the 1930's. Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing time capsule! I now don't even remember what my primary item was from this seller!
Above are two scans of items from this scrapbook that you just don't see anymore from Hollywood. Shirley Temple at the time of the filming of "The Little Colonel" and Ginger Rogers posing with amazing, glamorous cars. Oh those were the days.
