We have our first interview with long time Ebay Seller Jena from Jumble and Clutter, also, she’s Ryanne’s mom. We talk about how she got started, how she evolved from the early days of listing auctions on dial up to having a large fixed price store that is her full time job. Check out her Ebay store here. Check out GarageSale, the Mac software she uses to write and post her listings.
Love these lamps, but they aren’t selling on fixed price or auction. We know someone out there will want them!
Jay and Ryanne talk about what’s going on in their eBay store this week. We’ve tried another auction, rented a storage space and discuss the pros and cons of the new Best Offer program. Also, thanks to all our listeners sending emails, leaving comments and leaving ratings on iTunes!
Mikey and Wendy try to make and ship some Thrift Scores while traveling in the Northwest.
Being on the road while running an eBay store can be very challenging. Even with their store on full vacation mode, Mikey and Wendy are still dealing with returns and making sure customers are happy. Meanwhile, they’re trying to keep selling their travel finds using Flat Rate Padded Envelopes in the Northwest. “FRPE”s are a rarity at local Post Offices, as many don’t carry them and the USPS.com store limits customers to 90 per order per day. Why? We don’t know. But they are one of the best deals for shipping items everywhere in the US.
How do you find stuff to sell for $30-40? One great place is the Goodwill Warehouse Outlet.
Ryanne and Jay answer questions that have been rolling in from the blog. Where you do find valuable items? Why don’t you offer free shipping? Thanks to Don and Steve for striking up the conversation. We love feedback and conversation, so please leave comments or email us!
Some websites to look for auctions and estate sales are AuctionZip.com and EstateSales.net. You might find treasure at the nearest Goodwill Outlet Warehouse in your area. Also check your local newspapers for yard sales happening every weekend. Good Luck and Good Scavenging!
