Armor? The Coolest Thing I Ever Got on eBay

EBay can get a bad rap, what with the obsessive collectors of memorabilia from obscure movies and strategic bidders edging you out with precisely seven seconds to go.

But it can also be pretty fantastic. Where else could you find snakeskin Miu Miu pumps for $67, like our founder and CEO Alexa did? Or a vintage sundress from the sixties for $12, like our executive editor Carrie? Or unworn vintage Chanel heels for only $100, like editor in chief Maria?

And eBay isn't just for fashion, either. We put the question out to our team and our readers, and you wouldn't believe some of the cool stuff they've scored!
