122: So You Wanna Sell On eBay - Cheryl Tenbrook
Cheryl has been selling on eBay since 2001, full-time since 2012. She's a Top Rated Seller and Silver Power Seller. Her eBay store, Funkarelics, specializes in all things vintage, retro, antique and eclectic - with a few new items slipped in on the side. Interesting Notes Cheryl is the only child. When her mother passed away, she brings all her mom's stuff, from St. Louis to Kansas. It filled Cheryl's basement. Her mom's stuff gave her an inventory that did not have any cost. She decided to give eBay a shot. eBay at that time is still young and new. She cut her teeth in selling learning all that and got hooked on eBay. She takes her own pictures using her iPhone7. She has a photo booth of a linen tablecloth. It has a natural lighting from a window close by. The set up works well for small stuff. She goes to another room if she will take pictures of clothes and use a mannequin. There is not much of a thrift store in Cheryl's area. Most of their houses have a basement because of the tornado. So, everybody saves everything. She goes to Estate Sales and Auctions to source her inventory. It was in the Estate Sales that she got her postcards. She got a stack about 12 inches high for only $5. The night before this interview, Cheryl sold one of the postcards for $40. After sourcing, Cheryl would go through each of the items and get real photos. She would work on the postcards first because it sells the best. She would dump the damage stuff unless it is rare. She would start to take pictures and put them up. She would take a whole batch of pictures, edit it and list the whole batch too. It is so much faster if everything is in the same category. Some products would take her long to list. She can list the postcards in 5 minutes. There are only 2 sentences to write and the title. If you know what to charged for, then it would be very fast. After this interview, Cheryl would work on the German Doll House. It would be slower because she has to search a little bit to figure out the brand. It would take her 15 minutes to get them listed because it needs to be measured. Chery

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.
