ebay's new MyMix Feed

And the feed makes it really easy to customize.

My Current MyMix Feed

My feed has an broad collection of fashion, beauty and technology auctions, ’cause hey, those are the things that I love most, so I only view the items that I want to see. If you’re more into home decor, cooking, gardening, or pets, your feed will look so much different from mine!

ebay's MyMix Helps You Find Current Trends

I can’t believe how many items I’ve recently bid on, ’cause I’ve been watching my MyMix feed like a hawk since I first set it up (*cough* 14  items in 48 hours and counting….)  There are so many trendy items on sale at ebay that it’s easily going to become one of my main go to places to shop now that they’ve switched the way we can view auctions!  It’s just so much easier to find exactly what I’m looking for!

Items that I’ve recently found and love…

Gotta love a nice flow-y top that will be perfect for summer months!

Light a sexy top for summer!

Did you know that emerald green is the colour for 2013?  These gorgeous earrings will stay trendy all year long!

Emerald green, colour for 2013!

And this car is just all kinds of awesome, LOL!  It wouldn’t even work on a 4G network, but somehow I can’t seem to hold that important bit against it.  Its just too cool for me to care! 😉  And who wouldn’t want a cell phone for 11 cents?

Too cool cellphone on ebay.


Like what a lot of social media sites use today, ebay has this neat “new discovery” feature so that you don’t have to keep hitting the browser’s refresh button to see if there are new things to view in your feed.  I knew that there were a whole bunch of users selling goods on ebay, but my discovery bar always has something new to view every few minutes!  Its crazy how quick new items show up to view and enjoy!

How to Get Your Feed Set Up

This is quite possibly my favourite part of using MyMix to find new things to love.  Creating the feeds is just so easy to do!  When you’ve logged into your ebay account, you should see “My feed” around the middle of the screen, with an Edit button right beside it.  Click on Edit, and then type a specific trend that you’re looking for.  It could be something specific like, “Floral print jeans size 14”, “Smashbox foundation light”, “Coach Ashley Hand Drawn Scarf Print Carryall”, “Jimmy Choo size 9” or as simple as “smartphone”, “iPhone 4”, “Vera Wang”, or “door knobs”.  You can also refine the searches to be a specific as possible to your needs with the drop down selections just under the search box; like changing the condition of the item, if you have a preference and the price point you’re willing to purchase up to (Why view the $700 iPhone 4 entry if you’re only willing to spend $150 at most?)  This feed is obviously brand spanking new, so there will be changes made at any given notice.  I’m hoping for more refining options, like adding colour or material choices.

    Oh I love that!!!! I love that you can set things up b/c Amazon only goes by things I’ve searched for or purchased.  So I get a lot of items I’ve already reviewed or items my hubby would like b/c I bought gifts for him 😛 I don’t mind a mix but it’s not.  This seems cool!

  2. momvstheboys says

    that’s cool, it looks kind of pinteresty now! I’ve never actually used ebay before but it  might something I would use to look for shopping for my brother in law. so maybe technology, or star wars or something like that

  3. _littlemisskate says

    Right now I would be searching for nursing dresses – need to pick a few up for summer!
    I will have to check it out, I have always had good experiences shopping with ebay

  4. sharigoss says

    Ok now my entry into the contest! LOL I usually search for things like Dale Jr NASCAR things, or Cotton Yarn – shocked I know!

  5. MapleLeafMommy says

    It’s like Pinterest and eBay mated. Ack! That just can’t be good for my pocket book.

  6. MapleLeafMommy says

    Hmm… unique fantasy themed items, or out of print hard to find books and roleplaying games are my usual eBay poison. For a search term let’s start with: Dune the RPG

  7. TheoCartwright says

    I mostly look for dresses or shirts, so I look for ‘women’s’ and ‘small’ and ‘vintage’ and ‘indie’… so on and so forth hahah.  any combination of those sorts of terms.

  8. AngelaMitchell says

    I’ve always used ebay for collectables– posters, vintage toys, etc.  So I’d search for something like “rare 80’s toys”

  9. newfiechic says

    I am always looking for jeans.  Can get some pretty good deals at times.  I got a pair of Gap Bootleg that was NWT that totalled $10, including shipping to Newfoundland!

  10. glogirl3 says

    I like items that have timeless style that will last for years to come and not be out of style in a year or so.  A search string would be “small black purses”.

  11. CantonCathy says

    Sadly it ends up being replacement parts for electronics that are hard to find. What I would like to find is great vintage accessories or furnature

  12. AndreaAmy says

    normally i use ebay to find hard to find stuff for the kids, such as when my son went through a “blues clues” faze a couple years ago and they don’t make blue’s clues toys anymore. Tons on ebay though.

  13. ajandriley246 says

    Most of the items I buy off ebay are toys for my daughter. When I do buy for myself though it is usually watches

  14. jrsnicole says

    i love finding limited edition or hard to find makeup products! i have become such a makeup junkie!

  15. says

    my favourite thing to shop on ebay is for limited edition makeup. fashion wise, i love korean style clothing (especially sweaters and jackets!)! it’s hard to get where i live so ebay is so perfect for that!

  16. Cathy C says

    Looking for Raybans and cool purses.Love Jeannie comment I told my sister to get my both the large and small Longchamp bags on her next trip to England – I am sure that is no problem and what is a little splurge on her sister Tee Hee – Ok that would be a HUGE splurge but I am worth it!

  17. nicolthepickle says

    My Husband uses ebay for car parts all the time, but I’ve just recently discovered that I can shop there too. I’ve been looking for Bamboo inserts for cloth diapers.

  18. Maegan Morin says

    For me I search for purses the most on facebook. Usually its from the app on my phone so its Categories, Clothing Shoes & Accessories, Women’s Handbags & Bags and I just look at all of them 😀

  19. Linda says

    I tend to search for TATTOO Tights (Hottest trend in Japan ATM), Suede Nude Wedge (Looks comfy and goes with any outfit!), & iPad Back sticker (I want to customize my iPad more! There’s cute characters but I’m hoping to find the perfect I will love to look at!).
