Any SM collectors know that most of the items we dream of adding to our collection are pricey, if not completely affordable.
My two favourite things to collect are dolls and DVDs. I've always wanted to own the SuperS Box set that was release in North America. It's just so beautiful to me, but also, expensive. Every time I entered a bidding war for it, my max bid would be around 200 - and the final bid would be something between 500 and 700.
I was able to pick it up not long ago for 150 (about 114 US dollars) and it's lovely! I'm very happy.
What's the best deal you've come across?
