  • Debbi's sales have been strong and we do not really want to improve hers very much because of all the other things we have going on right now.

    Instead, we have opened two other stores to sell things that do not require her to make them and sales are starting to build as well.

    eBay just released a few videos that seems to firmly plant the seed of returning to the eBay we came to know and love. https://www.ebayinc.com/stories/news/video-looking-back-at-ebays-day-1-party/

    I have said in many venues that if we like what we see (not just hear) we darned well better speak up and support them. The stock holders need to support this type of effort and public support will be huge!

  • The basic response on most of the networking sites shows that Missouri has grown in population immensely. (The Show Me State)

    If you have been actively selling on eBay you may understand this hesitancy to accept that things are changing and while a part of me agrees, I am ready to give them the benefit of my trust, until proven wrong.

    For those of you new to eBay, I will summarize by saying that in the past few years eBay has really made it a "buyer's" marketplace and the seller was in fear of doing something wrong most of the time.

    Long story short, eBay is promising to take a few steps back to the mutual trust years. Time will tell, but many of us who have contacted customer service over the past few months have experience a much more flexible and understanding eBay.

    We are more trading partners, rather than sellers who are always trying to scam the buyer. No doubt, we will always have a bad apple, but eBay has come a long way since the Draconian methods were enforced, so many of us are very optimistic.
