OK I have seen something I want on ebay

It has no bids - but has 4 days to go

Is it worth emailing him & asking about buy it now?

Do I suggest a price or does he?

am I being particularily dim? If so...........sorry

just ask him if he has a price in mind to end the auction early

Really - it's that easy?

Why would/wouldn't he?

People often email me when I am selling our old tat, and offer a buy it now price. I always say no though, as its quite normal for stuff to only get bids in the last few hours, and almost always ends up more than whatever I was offered as a buy it now!
But you never know, just make him a sensible offer and wait to see what he says! You can always up a buy it now offer if he says no to your first one!
(Wonder if its something of mine..... are you buying knitting wool Katymac )
