Part of the fun of scavenging for eBay is meeting people along the way. We love going to auctions and flea markets so we can talk to other sellers about why and what they sell.
This is an interview with our friend, James, who has opened up our eyes to the possibilities of selling art. He has created a business over the past twelve years buying art and antiques on eBay and then re-selling at high end auctions. He's really taken the idea of Scavenging to a new level.
James became an expert in Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss), and Maurice Sendak ("Where the Wild Things Are"). He even became friends with Maurice and mentions these great interviews with him here and here.
James is also a philanthropist who has donated significant amounts of money to causes he believes in. We love him because he's passionate, generous and shows you don't have to just sell $20 items all day long.
