This Guy Sold a VHS Player on eBay and Then Got a Very Unexpected Letter


Earlier this year a person sold their VHS player on eBay and received a very unexpected letter in the mailbox shortly after the sale. It was from the 86-year-old buyer and this happened to be his first purchase on the online marketplace.

It put a big smile on my face and I hope it does for you too. Bless this man!

Hi ___________,
I found many old VHS tapes recently and wanted to see what is on them and realized I had no player. So I went to EBay for the first time and discovered your offer.
I bought your VHS and you shipped it within a few days. The VHS looks new and unused. Amazing. I had some issues getting it going which were mine and not the player. I am 86 and perhaps not up to my game but I do get there eventually. And I did, and discovered the VHS works perfectly.
Thank you so much for your care, your efforts, and your promptness.
I watched tapes of my retirement party from 25 years ago which I had never seen before. Jeez, were we young. Then a tape of my wedding with all the family and friends, many of which are no longer around. Then skiing trips, kids growing up, travels, and most importantly the gentle maturing of my family. Each one more fun than the last. All thanks to your generous selling of the VHS player.
I thought you would appreciate how much someone has enjoyed your offer.
Best regards,
