I've had three main jobs in my life. I worked for a police department for 10 years. I worked for a large dental office for 10 years. And I've been selling online for almost 10 years. Am I due for a career change? Nah, I'm happy doing what I'm doing. Every few months I get the hankering to learn a new craft, so I do. Short attention span here.
I just finished putting a few things on eBay. I/we have 1,201 active listings. That's a lot of listings. We also have a web site and are thankful when buyers choose to purchase there. Fees on "the Bay" are sky high. We have some things on eCrater and also on Bonanzle. No wonder it's standing room only in my head. Oh, I almost forgot Etsy. Not doing too well there, but I am determined to keep trying.
Every once in a while I pause to reflect that it all began with....yep, Beanie Babies. I remember the first one I ever sold - an owl, NWT dontcha know. I was thrilled. And I am still thrilled when I sell something and even more thrilled when the person who bought it is happy. That's a very good thing.
