The buy-it-now is not such bad thing. Though, person making purchase must do some homework about product to see if in fact they are getting best price. Currently on-line in search for particular artist handbags which were hand-painting. In my search I found this purse with two prices. Bidding price was $9.99 and buy it now price is $24.99. $24.99 is actually a great price because in times past I have seen similar items from this artist bid as high as $75.00. Describe in detail.
