What to do about pieces that are "on the way"

I never know if its the right thing to do when I've struck a deal or won an auction to display the piece in my gallery. I guess the struggle for me is that there's always a slight chance that the deal could go sour at the last moment or my precious item may get lost or damaged in the mail... so I feel nervous about releasing them on my gallery
I've seen people add a section called "coming soon" in which they display these pieces. I thought that was a good idea, but I am trying to limit the number of cel categories so I've tried to avoid doing that so far.
I've occassionaly loaded the image and description of the cel and 'locked' it until the cel actually arrives. But I always feel so excited about what I've bought that I can't restrain myself.
So this week I listed a Teddy Ruxpin cel that hasn't yet actually arrived but that I feel confident will, as I've dealt with the seller before and he always delivers. And I've kept two Gummi Bear background layouts 'locked' until they arrive as I still haven't made payment, and the package has to make a long long trip to get to me...
So guess I've decided to play it by ear depending on the deal and the seller.
Dunno why I felt compulsed to share this with ya... but I did :)
