(buying and selling, hobby or other items) I have never had one go bad. I think
that ebay is a great resource and suggest you give it another chance.

That's where feedback helps - you have to give bad sellers and buyers
negative feedback, good feedback when you have positive dealings. You have
to pass your experiences on.

My wife sells a fair amount on Ebay, and she reserves the right to not
accept bids from buyers with 'excessive' negative feedback - it's a nice way
to avoid some headaches down the road.

Good luck, don't give up on it...
