Millie on ebay
Well, it has been a long time since I have listed something for sale on ebay. Millie's listing ends Aug 16th around 7:30 eastern time. I have started her lower that her regular price with no reserve. Please visit her here.
Ebay has changed a lot in the last few years. I started selling there over 9 years ago. Bill & I used to go to storage unit auctions. We had a little thrift store and I listed some items on ebay. One memorable auction we purchased 2 double garage sized units for $2000. It was a real find. There were antiques, vintage jewelry, furniture, books and boxes + boxes + boxes of toys from the 70's still in their original packaging. It took me 3 years to sell it all on ebay.
I'm afraid those days are gone as ebay favors commercial sellers over the little guy. I still shop there after I have compared local pricing for the item. I have to admit there are items I could not find anywhere else.
There are several Teddy Bear Artists that have a following on ebay and get good prices for their creations. But the one of a kind catagory is populated with things that are obviously not ooak and many of the lesser known artists get lost in the crowd.
Now I will get off my soap box and hope you will visit Millie on ebay.
