I was surprised by the amount of buying activity on eBay during lockdown

At the start of lockdown I assumed that no-one would be buying anything online (apart from essentials on Amazon etc). So I didn’t bother trying to sell anything on eBay.

However, I was pleasantly surprised when most of the bits I put up for sale went pretty fast. Not only that, the pricing reflected market rates with no exceptional discounts in place. So I’ve been selling as much as I can right now to keep us afloat.

Given the predictions about the current economy I sort of feel there must just be more disposable income available for some people (furlough payments + no commuting + no leisure activity/travel spend?)
