We Have BIG News !

As of today my wife Deidre has turned in her 2 week notice to her employer of 19 years and will be going full time on ebay !! This is huge for us because now we will be able to expand our business beyond the local boundaries we have been confined to over the last 2 years.

This means we can go to auctions, estate sales and travel hundreds of miles in search of new product. She works nights and her job has been difficult to work around because during the times when we should be going she is sleeping and I could not go off and leave her here alone.

This will change our business in a huge way, we will be joining the .001% of families that are able to do this. I still can't believe it's real. I had no idea 4 years ago that we would be able to do anything like this.

We are both very much excited as we go into this final phase of our business model. We were able to escalate to this due to great sales over the last few weeks and because of other contributing factors I can't go into.

I hope everyone is having great sales and as always thanks for reading !

  1. Congratulations! That's great news.

    1. Thanks Nancy ! She is so excited and me too ! This is what we have been working toward for the last 2 years and now that the time has come it doesn't even seem real. It could not have come at a better time either, my poor wifes knee is shot from her previous job.

  2. Congratulations! I wish you all the best. No more working for "the man!" Good luck and I can't wait to hear all about your sourcing adventures.

  3. Thanks Lorraine ! There will be many photo's taken I promise ! If we find a really good place we will share the locations with the best stuff. I can't wait to hit the eastern states, seems to be where the best stuff is that I am always hearing about.

  4. Congratulations - This is huge, and I wish you the greatest success!

  5. Thanks Pat ! We just can't wait to start this new life for both of us, it's just so great being this young and being retired from the corporate world. Just unbelievable !

  6. Awesome. Congrats! Wishing you both the very best! Can't wait to read future posts about your adventures!
