Exactly right, North. I shake my head every time I see 10 people bidding on
an item 2 days before it's due to end. It makes no sense at all to me
unless you know you won't be around at the end of the auction and you use
the 'Bid Assistant'. I found that the only way that I could ever win was to
'snipe' (once I got high-speed) in at the last second with my highest bid I
was willing to pay for the item.

thanks for the good advice. I did as you said, researched past winning
bids, set my max and entered it at the end of the auction. I got my
pot and can't wait to give it a try! Actually, I got two of them since
another one really caught my eye as one to put on the mantle as a
conversation piece. :o)
Also, esnipe or similar services provide an inexpensive way to bid on
auctions when you aren't around at the end of an auction. It makes no
sense to bid on an auction early unless you are trying for a buy it
now; you only can succeed in driving up the cost of the item.
