A friend of mine just told me this and I just had to share.
She bought an antique on eBay and it came wrapped in a Depends diaper: "It gave me the willies, just thinking about it�.not good marketing! I mean really, they couldn�t spring for some bubble wrap!"
Yikes! Another thing she bought once came with cobwebs on it. Well, chalk those up to the "what not to do" department in packing and shipping.
I must say, though, the things I buy on eBay 99% of the time are wrapped very well, sometimes with multiple layers of bubble wrap.
