eBay's search algorithms are always interesting to try to figure out when something's amiss with one of my queries.  



After seeing item #  
** expired eBay auction **
in the Non-TSR interesting things thread, I was curious, since I hadn't found the lot in my usual scanning for Starstones.



However, I can't seem to get that auction to appear in my search results, even when searching for "starstone." (with period) or "starstone vernon" (no in quotes in my query), even with search description and search worldwide clicked.  



Any thoughts?  Does it have anything to do with the Item Location or Ships To being listed as UK (and eBay knows I'm not in the UK)???

I'd definitely say because he is only offering shipping to the UK.  Try doing a search on to www.ebay.co.uk and I am sure it will come up. :wink:

Yeah Al, i think BC is right there. i get instances like that the other way round and i have to log into ebay.us for the items to appear.

Yep, that's what it is.  It happens to me all the time too.  As long as you do the search from Ebay.co.uk it will come up - even if you are logged in with a home address from the US.
