Snappy the Snail, and Something Nice About Ebay

I know that ebay-bashing is the thing right now, but I just had a really nice ebay experience. Well, Ebay didn't do anything nice, but because of one of my ebay listings, I had a really nice human interaction.

I have listed this adorable Snail Teapot. It's got an Enesco sticker, but that was all I really knew about it. I figured he was cute enough, someone will want him, so I didn't do any homework on him.

Well, today I got a couple of really nice friendly and ever-so-helpful emails from a fellow ebayer.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thanks, Joanne!"

She let me know all the details on the little guy. He's from Enesco's SNAPPY THE SNAIL line.



As it turns out, had I googled him, I really wouldn't have found out much. This is one of those cases where there just isn't much written about this item online. Usually I am amazed at how much info I do find when I look online.

Joanne even sent me a photo of the Snappy Snail line from her Enesco price guide. And here it is for you to see:


Maybe I'll get that cute cookie jar someday. Then I suppose I'll wish I hadn't sold the T-pot...

Joanne's going to be selling some great Enesco items, so keep an eye on her ebay listings. Just go to: apreciouslittlememory .

Hope you all had a nice day too!
