Link is fixed now.  Sorry I'm such a numbscull

I can imagine the first person who realized that chocolate and peanut butter went together.  Two awesome things, and putting them together.  Genius.  Why did it take so long?

That is how I felt when I discovered Tophatter- it's like ebay and Etsy got married and had a kick ass baby.

Tophatter holds "auctions" on homemade items made by sellers (and other non-homemade items), and participating people (like me or you) can bid on the items.  Each bid increases the selling price of the item until the final bid is accepted and the item is sold.  It's pretty exciting, and there were a few times I wanted to choke out some of the little animated people who outbid me on items.

If you use ebay to sell items that are laying around your house, you might want to consider the live auction function of Tophatter, because your items are sold very quickly.  They have tons of different auctions - gourmet food, supplies, weekend bazaar, vintage estate sale, etc.  A little something for everyone.

And if you want to get a little something for you, sign up now and you'll get a $5 credit to spend on any item that you're the winning bidder!  Be careful though, you might find the site a little addictive!
