    A couple of CDs from a now-defunct site called CDNow. At the time I didn't even have a computer at home, I ordered them using a PC at the public library!! Haha. I believe that was around 1999.

    Mine was Pocky (chocolate covered Japanese stick cookie thing) and I got them from Amazon.com. I reckon it was about 2005. I lived in a little town and knew no one would carry it locally.

    I purchased used school books. It was either off eBay.com or Half.com. I shopped at both and it was so long ago. I even bought a car off eBay a few years later.

    Blue stuffed Y2K beanie-baby type teddy bears. It was in 1999, and I had just been made aware that the internet might have some well-priced stock for my hotel gift shop. It was the first time anyone had suggested a practical use for the internet to me. Wow, that's strange to think back to...

    That's easy, it was a baseball card from the Baltimore Oriole's team.

    I'm not sure if I remember.  But I do know that my very first item that was a larger purchase for me was a Dell desktop back in 1997.
