Jump Start On The Holidays

I guess people are getting a jump start on their holiday shopping because my eBay store has been insane lately! 10 sales in less than 24 hours! My legs have been busy walking to and from the local post office, but I am NOT complaining. My blog has been suffering since I am trying to list merchandise in my store (sorry).

Like I have mentioned in previous blogs and tweets, don’t underestimate how much time it takes to list merchandise on eBay. Once beautiful photographs are taken of each individual item, it is vital to write an accurate description which leaves minimal questions for potential buyers. I do my best to over-communicate product features, share detailed photos, give approximate measurements, etc. Then, there is the packaging process and the actual shipping. It is my personal philosophy to ship items within 2 days of receiving payment, although in almost all cases I ship the same day.

Ok, enough blogging…it is time to dress my mannequins and snap some photos in the natural light. I have a huge stash of clothing to list, so pray my toddler naps today! I really could use that quiet time to work!

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? No pressure, but there are only 46 days until Christmas.

  1. No… I’m seriously slacking this year! I need someone to go do it for me.

  2. Just picked up a few things. Still have the bulk of my shopping left to do.

  3. I think it is awesome that you really take e-baying to such a professional level. I wish all e-bay sellers shared your enthusiasm. 🙂

  4. Thanks Lori. I also wish all ebayers shared the same passion because I have had some really poor transactions (as a buyer). When I do come across a terrific seller, I let them know how much I appreciate their extra efforts. 🙂
