    Hiya,

    I use advanced search on ebay for specific things but this site shows me all bargains in my area

    Thanks OP I shall never miss a bargain again

    Ps Bless your cotton socks for giving the seller £5- I had that happen too when I won a bid for 99p... I won myself a cot, moses basket, toys, bouncy chair and bags of baby clothes from 0 months to 1 year I felt that bad that I gave the seller £20 (it was all I had on me) and it was all in excellent condition....

    I use the Location options on the left hand side within ebay. You can choose to search between 10 and 2000 miles of your home postcode.

    I have just looked as well and seen some bargains in my area. Before any items I wanted which turned out to be for pick up onlywhere far away. Very frustrating.

    Thanks
    Be thankful for what you have because it could all be taken away tomorrow.

    great tool, i have seen this befor and use it all the time,

    make sue you hit the search button, and dont just press enter, then it works,

    for some reason when you just hit enter it does something wrong, and fails.

    oh and make sure there is no gap in your post code too
