Holy Food?

What is it with Selling FOOD on eBay that supposedly has a likeness of the Virgin Mary? one of the first wildly notorious eBay auctions was the Grilled Cheese Madonna - remember that one? sold to for $28,000 by a seller from Ft. Lauderdale FL! This week it was a pretzel said to resemble the Virgin Mary with child. That one got over $10 million before it was pulled. So, before you throw those peanuts, pretzels or whatever into your mouth and start chewing - really LOOK at your food! I'm seeing visions already! Check out my photos to see the real items that sold.

Leopard Print Pajamas anyone?

I now have a truckload, and I mean a TRUCKLOAD of Pajamas for sale. All Leopard Print and in ALL sizes. From 3 - 6 months infants to XL Mom's. These are great PJs and very comfy. So check 'em out . . . .even have baby blankets!

And Check out the Information on these! Mama's Pajamas Brand.

What are Mama's Pajamas?

Mama's Pajamas are a learning tool developed by a mom for other moms. While breastfeedign our daughter, Claire, I noticed that, aside from her occasional glances up at me, her only view was of my pajamas. Already knowing the benefits of breast feeding and the benefits of visual stimulation on infants. I decided to combine the two. I took the idea of "Smart Toys" one step further and made a pair of pajamas out of fabric with a bold pattern in primary colors. Our daughter immediately noticed the designs and seemed more content to nurse and cuddle with me. I wanted all moms to share in my discovery, so "Mama's Pajamas" were born! They are available in both Nursing and non-Nursing, perfect for every mom! Mama's Pajamas are pajamas with purpose!

eBay Selling and Leathercraft

I love selling on eBay for so many reasons! I am always researching new stuff and learning about new people and new things. This week I had a bunch of vintage leather craft booklets and etc to list. they are really cool looking and almost makes me want to take up working with leather. Anyway, here is some of the information my research turned up. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The information below is from Wikipedia:

Al Stohlman (August 15, 1919 – March 6, 1998) was a leatherworker and author of numerous books on the art of leather crafting, including books on hand sewing, embossing, carving, and saddle making.

His wife Ann (June 30, 1924 – June 10, 2004) was a collaborator on many of his books, as well as a collaborator on the leather projects used to illustrate the books. They lived on a ranch in Canada and wrote many of the instruction books still used today to teach people to work with leather.

Al Stohlman began working with leather during World War II while stationed in the Pacific. He and his friends made their own punching and carving tools from nails. Many years later, Al set up his own line of tools; 'Al Stohlman brand' leatherworking tools and hardware are still available from leather supply stores.

Some of the Stohlmans' work is memorialized at the Tandy Leather "Al Stohlman Museum" in Fort Worth, Texas

Wii Wants to play NOW!

Okay, so I thought the Wii was just another video game in a long line of video games in this house. Well, it's not! With four sons and a daughter who loves VG (Video Games) we've had these around for YEARS! I'm talking ATARI, okay? But this Wii - well, even this mom thinks it's way cool! The first time I got to watch someone play (you don't think _I'm_ gonna take this on at my advanced age, did ya?) I laughed so hard I spilled my drink! We were at a friend's house and they set up the Wii for Jonathan (17) and Kirk (then 15) to play. They decided to BOX each other. It was SO realistic, they were both winded and sweating when the bout ended! And to watch them 'punching' and 'dodging' well, ya just had to be there!

So, anyway, I found this great wholesale deal on these Wii Launch Kits - really neat. Has two gloves for the controllers, a Limited Edition Wii Baseball cap, a big plastic organizer/storage thing and on top of all that you get a 12 month subscription to GamePro Magazine and a trial subscription to GameFly (where you rent Video games like at NetFlix you rent movies). So, Retail on these was $34.99 and I have them on eBay for $9.99! So check it out

thanks for playin'

Lord of the Rings Figures are pretty realistic!

since I do a lot of consignment sales on eBay, I get a wide variety of things to sell. Each new item takes a bit of research and I usually enjoy delving in to all that. This last month, I'm selling for a very big Lord of the Rings fan. I mean, she must have HUNDREDS of these figures and has kept them all in pristine condition. They've never been removed from their boxes, just displayed as is. When I first started listing them I noticed they were extremely detailed and very well-made. Not what I would consider your everyday action Figure (my expereince with my sons' Super Heroes and Smurf figures) but these were just incredible. I mentioned it to my customer and she told me the neatest thing. When they got ready to make these figures, they got the original actors and acctresses from the LOTR movies and used a brand new laser imaging system to recreate them for the figures. The Orlando Bloom one is so detailed - really cool! Anyway, take a look at old Orlando as Legolas and let me know what ya think. And ladies, don't blame me if you can't resist him, LOL

Colorado Springs Online Sellers unite! eBay, anyone?

Happy February everyone! I have started a group on Yahoo for online sellers here in Colorado Springs. We had our 1st meeting in Nov. One of the subjects we talked about was selling for others. One gal did a car on consignment and sold it for $26,000. She had lots to tell on some of the pitfalls and the commission she charged. The group is small right now, but our goal is to grow slowly. The main idea for the group is to help each other with information, brainstorming, lesson learned, and to create a synergy that we vent and try to resolve problems with people we trust. We have a short questionnaire when someone requests membership in the group - just simple things like eBay name, real name and stuff like that. We feel that we want to know a little about the members before we started sharing some hard learned lessons or information. We have both men and women - one who is just starting out, a gold PowerSeller and everyone in between besides a certified eBay instructor. If you would like an invite to the group, just let me know.
