My hubby and I started out on eBay as buyers, then became sellers because we just wanted to part with some of our stuff. That turned into "this is really neat I bet someone would really like this" and buying things here and there at rummage sales and the like. My only criteria in purchasing for our store is I sell only items I myself really like, with rare exception. That way if it doesn't sell I won't be embarrassed to see it lying around our house forever lol. I sell mostly clothes but sometimes other items too. My husband lists items that are the subject of his lifelong hobbies namely military items, world coins/paper money/tokens, and model trains. We love all animals here, and a bit of extra income comes in handy too as we give a great forever home to our amazing furry family and friends.
