Top 10 list for online shopping

podfink 25 August 2006 39

I am running a “Buying and Selling on the Internet” class at Hawker College. For our last class, I wanted to produce a Top 10 list for online shopping. My list is below, would love comments and other sites.

  • 1. www.ebay.com.au – everything
  • 2. www.amazon.com – great gift wrapping service
  • 3. www.dola.com.au – Canberra’s Online Auctions
  • 4. www.bestflights.com.au – amazing travel deals (no really an e-shop)
  • 5. www.wotif.com.au – discounted/last minute hotels
  • 6. www.cdbaby.com – great alt music
  • 7. www.lulu.com – weird and wonderful self published everything
  • 8. http://stores.ebay.com.au/phantom-wines – my favourite clean skins wine
  • 9. www.pickles.com.au – buy a car @ live auction from your PC
  • 10. www.cafepress.com – weird and wonderful t-shirts

  • What's Your Opinion?

    [quote comment="203620"]the best new online store i have come across is http://ezyelectronics.com.au. there product range is crazy big. i don't get how these stores just pop up.[/quote]

    overstock outlet is one that has regular contact with the manufacturers, ezy electronics do the same. grays online are always good for a look too.

    [quote comment="31630"]Dola is pretty ordinary - 1/2 the auctions look like someone trying to resell wares purchased at trash and treasure on a frosty sunday morn[/quote]

    That could be the stuff they get from various storage facilities when people don't pay up.

    Some of the stuff they get from liquidations are good. A couple of years ago they had books from Angus and Robertson which they sold in lots of 5 and 10. Good value at the time.

    I use http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/ in preference to Amazon - they offer free (and fast) shipping which really tips the balance

    http://www.etsy.com/ has got an insane amount of cool stuff (all handmade) and can keep you browsing for hours

    www.buyena.com and www.ozebaby.com.au for environmental cloth nappies

    www.treasuresforangels.com.au for scrapbooking supplies

    A lot of baby & kids online forums also have trading rooms eg Essential Baby, Natural Parenting, Nappycino.

    my bro owns a Les Paul Classic - limited edition as well i think (bought from namm)... and yes superb tone!

    Um they say that they have to work harder to play instruments well???? :P

    Start an online petition for getting a new guitar.. then show your fiancee

    Mr_Shab 4:25 pm 28 Aug 06

    Fie on your Les Paul, I say! Too heavy, clunky, cheap-feeling machinery, over-dark pickups and characterless tonality.

    ES's are okay, I suppose.

    Thumper 2:05 pm 28 Aug 06

    I love Les Pauls. Beautiful action, superb tone, and they look absolutely shit hot!

    Or ES330s. Mmmmmmmmmm.....

    Danman 1:44 pm 28 Aug 06

    You know what they say about small hands dont you AD :P

    PS how do I hire you guys to propaganda my fiancee into my line of thinking ?

    Absent Diane 12:46 pm 28 Aug 06

    I find gibsons play beautifully and sound excellent BUT being blessed with smaller hands... I tend to need a smaller neck.

    There is no such thing as enough music gear full stop...

    Mr_Shab 12:39 pm 28 Aug 06

    Rather like CD's - you never look at your guitar collection and think "No. No more. That's enough."

    Thumper 12:20 pm 28 Aug 06

    You can never have enough guitars.....

    Mr_Shab 11:48 am 28 Aug 06

    Perish the thought, alright. Gibsons are rubbish ;)

    Danman 11:22 am 28 Aug 06

    yeah - my list of options has been reduced to pretty much ebay and cash converters (you already have 2 guitars - why do you want another one) - looks like I am going to have to crack out that buy dan a Les paul Studio hypnotherapy tape again.

    Pfft try convincing a non muso what 3 different guitars are for - not easy - perish the thought should I want a Gibson Zak Wylde custom.

    Absent Diane 10:19 am 28 Aug 06

    if it plays nicely (and is aesthetically pleasing) then yeah 849 is dirt cheap..

    Avy 9:36 am 28 Aug 06

    whose top ten list is this? yours? if so, why are you asking others?

    if it's meant to be an objective top ten list, why are you asking a small community like riotact?

    there are plenty of sites i use for online purchases, and none are featured on this list. but by the same token, i would not be teaching my class that my favourite sites are in any way the best.

    I own a samick 20 dollar steel string acoustic - funnily enough purchased at Trash and Treasue on a frosty sunday morn about 2 years ago.

    I also have a maton steel string semi ( that does not go camping ) and looking for a new electric - solid wood - quilted red maple top = floating trem and warm tone. I found one for 849 and I thought that was cheap - fiancee dont think so :(

    Absent Diane 4:15 pm 25 Aug 06

    omg - that is like the ultimate nightmare for a muso!! at least if you had of smashed it gigging, it would have been an honorable death!!

    Jey 4:03 pm 25 Aug 06

    hmmm did get my car on all classifieds

    most of my partner's and I recent presents to each other were off ebay

    get my wine off the net too http://www.getwinesdirect.com/
