Today, after doing tons of research on a wand my little brother wanted for Christmas, I finally found one on eBay for $60. After already giving my credit card info and confirming the purchase, my dad called me and told me he found the exact same one for six bucks at a local toy store. FML

Totally fair on the seller who may then be unable to sell it before Christmas. Not his fault that OP didn't think to check locally. I realise that is assuming anyone else would be dumb enough to spend $60 on it.
Some business sellers put prices to ridiculous levels when out of stock, to prevent sales, so maybe OP will be in luck.


Haha. 60$ for a real wand or one made of gold. Silly muggle has no idea what the price is to pay for either of those. Maybe you would get a wand made of pine for that but not willow or one made with a Phoenix feather.

So present one of the wands and sell the other one back on eBay ? Or perhaps the seller accepts returns ? Or else just consider it the price of a lesson learned (do your research? ) Don't worry , stuff like that happens to all of us at one point or another ....

Contact the seller and explain that you realised you no longer have the funds for the item and you may repurchase at a later date. It's worked for me.
