Ebay Tips: Spelling Bee

While Ebay autocorrects most misspellings, you can still occasionally find auction titles with words written incorrectly or in a different writing system (as mentioned a few posts ago). As most people miss out on these items when they only search the more common terms, you stand a better chance of winning them. :)

Here are a few to try, two using the less-common Nihonsiki variants of spelling:

-geisya (rather than geisha)
-homongi (rather than houmongi, "visiting wear" kimono, and a technical misspelling)
-hurisode (rather than furisode)
