More on eBayPosted Sunday, September 2, 2007, at 8:32 PM
They found a new home on eBay!
We sold our ordinary sales items, but hit it rich with one particular thing that cost us about 80 cents and sold for over $1,300 to a fellow in Italy. No, I am not going to say what it was, and this is not an every day occurrence but when you have millions of customers out there it can get fun, not to mention rewarding.
To some, eBay is a dirty word, but it has opened up the world to both buyer and seller. Merchants who deal in almost any marketplace would do well to embrace the new and enjoy the benefits.
Instead of spending hours upon hours browsing the stores and MAYBE finding that one special thing you have been looking for, you can put in a few search words and check out the world, all from the comfort of your home or office.
Apparently what we had (we did not know it, because we started it at $1.99) had not been seen on the general market for over 20 years. At least that is what a collector in Great Britain told us. He correctly estimated the final price and we thought he was crazy.
The search is just as enjoyable as finding the prize. Selling is also an exciting trip and if you have ever considered using the power of the internet to market your product or just sell your "stuff", there is no better time than now and eBay is about as easy as it gets.
Just to clarify, I am not employed by eBay. It is just a buying/selling community we stumbled on years ago and are so excited, we can't stop talking about it.
