Of course. Finding bargains is fun. Recognizing gems in the rough
amidst a sea of PC clones in a warehouse os sale items is fun.
Relatively few items find their way to eBay, in the grand scheme of things.

This is a tempest only if you live in the eBay teapot. I do not
recall any reports of yard-sale Altairs with signs saying "Just $4000,
20% less than eBay."
