This week was very chairy- we sold 2 fancy chairs for a total of $700! One on Craigslist and one on eBay local pick up. We also have the exciting news of getting our first booking through Airbnb for our rental farmhouse. Hurrah. Great week in numbers. Sales were up. Hope all your sales were great too. If not, you just gotta keep listing. Those sales will come. I promise.

It's been six months since we last heard from Mikey and Wendy who left this podcast to spend more time on their personal projects and become master Ultra Runners. But they've continued to make a living scavenging for eBay and share how they've developed a system for selling on the road. We miss these guys! You can see Wendy's book and Mikey's electronics kits in their store.

Lots going on in this week's podcast. We learned a bunch in the comments from all y'all. Had a negative feedback removed. We had a bit of a slow selling week, lots of items, but low prices. It's always good to move low priced items out though. Don't forget to check out HealthCare.gov if you need to sign up for insurance. Put politics aside and just do it!
