After selling my own handmade stuff on eBay for a while, I started selling a lot of "shabby chic" decorating items. Around 2006, pink was a hot seller and I sold tons of pink items - sheets, towels, plates, teapots, you name it. This is where I also first got the photography bug as I learned how to stage little "vignettes" to showcase my items with my trusty Olympus P&S. I also became interested in html, working and re-working my purchased templates.
Around late 2008 it started costing me too much to sell on eBay because people had stopped buying due to the economy. I still have a huge amount of silk flowers, paints, fabrics, plus shipping boxes, bubble wrap and tape. Today I decided to look up my favorite sellers list on eBay, which I haven't even looked at for about two years and almost everyone has nothing for sale. Probably have all gone to Etsy or like me, gave it up. Although I did find one seller and she is still going at it. Put a little spark in my brain!
I'm still registered with the State as a business. Could it possibly happen? I'm going to look more into this, my interest is piqued!
