This week we talk about our experiment with auctions (spoiler: lots of items sold, but most at opening bed). Jay’s excited as winter sets in because it means there’s nothing to do but stay inside and list. Now is the time to do it since the holidays are literally just two weeks away.
A listener, Brad, pointed us to this cool story on book arbitrage on the Planet Money podcast.
And Jena, Ryanne’s mom, sent us this cool site that helps you identify tartan plaids. If you are nerdy like us, this will excite you.
And we have a question: would anyone come to a Scavenger forum if we built one? We’re getting sometimes over 100 comments which can be overwhelming, and I could imagine a place where it’d be easier to search for past answers so we build a knowledge base. But there’s also other community groups to hang out in, and we all should be listing anyway instead of talking online. Anyone care one way or another?
