Things have been going well here except that I am sooooo tired. I can’t even tell you how tired I have been, it’s that bad. If Aidan hadn’t gotten snipped I would think I was pregnant, that’s how tired I am! I suppose it’s because I have been doing so much lately that my body isn’t used to it, but it better catch up!
My sales on eBay pretty much came to a hault after 2 weeks into the month of February and that was very disappointing and totally nerve wracking. I was on my way to $1,000 then it just stopped and only video games sold after that, which I make only about $.50 on, so that was really aggravating. I messed with my keywords in the SEO part of my store though and I believe that had a lot to do with the down turn. It probably takes a few weeks for that to register?
Anyway I woke up to an okay sale this morning and I am feeling like things will turn back around :) I’m also thinking maybe people buy more frivolous things in the beginning of the month, we will see!
Marshal was inspired by my selling and started his own eBay, he is doing fantastic! He’s sold all but one of his items out of 5 and in my opinion that’s super impressive. I told him he will be beating me in sales soon. He said he wants to get into antiques like I am into. I don’t really have a lot to deal with antiques, I only have a handful of items, but that’s just because I haven’t come across too many yet. I am glad he wants to get into that too. For a 17 year old to say he wants to sell antiques, I think that’s very awesome.
I keep telling Regina to sell her clothes that she doesn’t wear, she has a ton of them and she could make some money but she doesn’t seem too interested. I thought that when she saw Marshal bringing in close to $200 in a week or two it would light a fire under her but it hasn’t. Who knows.
Aside from listing things for myself I’ve teamed up with a dealer that comes into my work and I will be listing items for him. He’s pretty cool and knows a lot about the business. I’ve already learned a bit from him and he is branching out of his comfort zone and starting to look into pottery now because he knows how much I enjoy it. The deal is that I’ll get 30% of his sales for listing, and any research I do. We haven’t discussed shipping yet but we will get there. I think I will start listing for him this weekend, so I am excited for that, he’s already shown me some really cool stuff he has for me.
Okay, well here are some of the items I but up for sale this week, sharing just because I am a proud mama :)
Of course I am still waiting on my daughter to do my logo. I’ll be retired when she finally gets it done.. I am just going to share my store link, if anyone wants to look, you can. Please forgive the fact that I have no branding yet lol
