The hilariousness of selling on ebay
Be careful of listing too low. I sold some MightyWorld toys for 99 cents and then had to pay ten dollars to ship!
Don't get depressed if your item doesn't sell. Apparently I am such an emo I feel rejected if no one bids on my item.
Does it seem to you ebay has become the place for unwanted miniatures to rotate around and around, over and over, week after week? It must be the result of with free listings? I have seen some of the same items float by for a year!
My younger daughter will hold up an item and say "What about this?" and I will say "OH NO! That belongs in the... house". She wearied of it after everything she held up I claimed to need.
When my elder daughter, mother of my little assistant, set up her own house all my extra stuff migrated there.
Now that my second daughter is planning setting up HER own household, we have already been through the attic. I remember wheedling antiques from my own mother, and now the daughters are asking for the very same ones!
Ha! The more things change, the more they stay the same, I guess!
BUT! we made $24.00! so everytime we go to a restaurant we say, "Oh bartender... I'll have another, I'm making money now on ebay..."
