Have you ever bid for something and missed on EBay, or spotted something at a sale, fair or even thrifted... gone away and lost it forever? I guess it's like fishing- the 'one that got away'. The other day I was sniped on EBay bidding on a 1960s dress- seller didn't realise Horrockses was collectable ...but the label was there in the photos and it checked out design wise. Only one other bidder, went for 5p more than my upper bid. 'The one that got away' for me... would have been both perfect for my collection and absolute bargain of the year. Anyone else want to confess any near misses and get closure?
