Subject: RE: BS: eBay Strategy
Gargoyle, you're right. There is a lot of estate stuff going through eBay. I've sold a lot from my parents and elderly aunts there. Things I don't collect but that other people do. I have a friend who volunteers at a hugely successful thrift store in Arizona - it is open only 3 hours a day, six days a week. They sell for cash and checks only. There are eBay folks in the back room listing a lot of items that come in. It is in the heart of a well-to-do retirement community.

Linn, it might be easiest to talk about it on the phone one of these days. Do you have a fast enough connection to do a Google hangout? Do you have a Gmail account? Everything else hangs on that as far as using Google+ (where the hangouts are found). To start on eBay, choose a small specialty and work from there. Put money in your PayPal account and buy a few things to have a bit of a feedback score when you start selling. There are any number of ways to make it start working for you pretty quickly.
