  1. Tony, Thank you for the "shout out" - that was very thoughtful! And much appreciated!

    It was nice to finally see your lovely wife, Deidre, in the video, and it was fun to hear about your journey, and reflections on your first year. It is always good to do an analysis of how you are doing, and then set new goals for the next year. I tend to do it on a calendar year basis, simply because that is a convenient time and all the yearly numbers help in assessing my progress.

    The sample dress story was quite humorous. I have actually never seen a dress sample before, but I know the antique salesman sample dressers are highly collectible. So maybe dress samples have a collectible market, also. I just do not know anything about them. But the story is one you will be telling for years, I imagine.

    Thanks for your upbeat and positive attitude - it is infectious, and greatly appreciated!

    1. thanks Pat, I know more about dresses now than I should, lol. We are doing fine, sales are still coming in for whatever reason and thats good. I was happy Deidre decided to join me and I hope she will make more videos with me. We are on a real schedule now so things are getting done.

      I hope your sales are starting to get better, please let us know.

    2. August is starting out okay, so I remain hopeful that it continues throughout the entire month. Thank you for asking !

      Glad you guys have a good schedule that allows you to list lots of items this month.

      I have a lot of family commitments this month, and some travel, so I expect my listing time to be very limited. August is generally this way for me because this is always when out of town family visits. But time spent making memories with my family is the best time ever, so EBay can just wait until September, I say.

      Happy August!

  2. It's always nice to hear how others got started in their reselling journey. Ebay has a great potential to earn way beyond what any minimum wage job can and its wonderful to hear that you guys are still pursing eBay as a full time job.

    I needed the laugh from your Pokemon story, I work from home so videos like yours are my social outlet until my other half comes home from his day job. Thanks for sharing.
