What Are YOU Watching?

Only a few more weeks until the season premiere of Shark Tank!  Can’t wait!  I like to listen to podcasts and watch online shows while I work.  Unfortunately, I’ve watched every single episode of Shark Tank, so I’m always on the lookout for something new.

 

I was on Twitter the other day, and I discovered a show called Real Biz.  The show is hosted by journalist Rebecca Jarvis. Jarvis has interviewed quite a few business leaders.  I really like it.  You should check it out!  And if you’re interested in seeing my list of podcasts, television shows, and blogs for entrepreneurs, click here!

Got Lee?

 

We’ve been listing, listing, listing, and things have been movin’.  Just sold this pair of vintage Lee disco jeans for $40. I have a whole stack of  them and have been listing them one at a time.  Gotta make ’em seem rare!

My PayPal Card Was Hijacked!

 

Trifari

 

I love my PayPal debit card.  It allows me to spend the money in my PayPal account while I’m on the go!  Since I swipe my debit as credit whenever I purchase something,  I usually get a cash rebate of around $45 at the end of each month.

 

I also love my debit card because PayPal sends me an email anytime it has been used.  Last week, PayPal sent me a message informing me that I had just spent $500+ at Walgreens in Los Angeles.  Since I’ve only been to L.A. twice in my whole life, I immediately called the customer service line to let the company know that someone had hijacked my card. They’ve already put the money back in my account.  So easy!

 

In other news…

 

I just purchased Lynn Dralle’s upcoming audio teleseminar featuring jewelry expert Sherri Mertle.  The webinar is entitled “How To Identify and Sell Gold Jewelry and Scrap.”  I would love to sell more jewelry since it doesn’t cost much to ship, and it’s easy to store.  The necklace pictured above is a gold tone Trifari piece I currently have listed.  I don’t think I’ve ever sold a real piece of gold jewelry, so I’m excited to learn more about this topic.  If you’re interested in purchasing the teleseminar, click here.

Uh-Oh. We Have 48 Hours to Clean Up Our Act!

 

velcro

 

Yesterday I received an email from eBay.  Apparently, the Velcro corporation is part of the VeRO (Verified Rights Owner) program, and we are no longer allowed to use the word velcro in our listings.  I’ve been selling on eBay for 11 years, and we have never had a problem using this term.  Very strange.

 

Anyway, we have two days to remove the word velcro from all of our listings.  One of the things I learned at eBay Open was the fact that anchor store owners now get a 48-hr warning before receiving a violation.  I have already edited 50 listings. 33 more to go!  Wish me luck!  (And please let me know if there are any other words I shouldn’t be using!)

What Sells on eBay in August? Vintage Coats!

 

Yesterday I decided to relist all the items in my store that were being watched by at least four people.  This vintage jacket was one of those items.  It had been sitting in my store since January.  It’s really unique, and it’s very photogenic.  However. it’s marked a medium and fits like a modern small.  (I usually try on vintage items, so that I can describe the fit to potential buyers.)  Small coats can take longer to sell.

 

Anyway, it sold for $49.99 within an hour of being relisted! Yup, it’s time to list and relist winter wear!
