083: So You Wanna Sell On eBay - Cynthia Boris
7 days ago
Cynthia and Lars have been selling on eBay since the early days when you had to host your photos elsewhere! They sell what they love, pop culture collectibles, TV and movie memorabilia and all kinds of vintage memories from T-shirts to souvenirs and photos. Interesting Notes Cynthia is a writer who covered, then the TV collectibles for Toy Shop Magazine. Now, she still writes and is also a social media manager. eBay is a part-time business to her. Meanwhile, her husband Lars has retired. He is a big fan of old media (VHS, Beta, Cassettes, 8 Tracks). eBay became his full-time business. The couple does well on eBay, but they don't make it a full time living yet. Cynthia and Lars's hobby is thrifting. They are big collectors of TV memorabilia like Lost in Space. If they did not sell on eBay, they have a hoarding problem. Like most of the eBay sellers, they started selling their own stuff. Those were the days when they have to wait for people to mail their cheques. A couple of years ago, the couple started to become serious about eBay. That was when Cynthia started buying to resell. One night, she came back from a Goodwill store with a two gigantic bags of things. She said to Lars, "If I can't make a profit out of these, I will never do reselling. But, if I can, then this is it." And it worked. Back then, she can go to Goodwill stores every night. She can find some vintage items, old toys, and the things that she likes. But, their thrift stores now are selling cast-offs or clearance items from department stores. It became difficult for them to find a deal and to find the things that they look for. So they shifted to Estate Sales and find the kind of things that people have saved all their lives. It formed a new kind of hobby for them. On the Estate Sales, Cynthia felt like walking into someone's home and see the whole life laid down in front

Motivates me to sell on Ebay again.
I gave Ebay a shot and couldn’t hack it. But I didn’t have access to this information. Thanks for this valuable resource Ali and Ron.
