I think it would be awesome, especially since I lost my notebook page that had all the brands/items on it that I wrote as I read this whole thread...It would take forever to go back through it! lol

There's a list already on my blog under "what sells". I add to it when people mention something, but been slacking lately b/c I've been so busy!

Re: does anyone have a sucessful Ebay store?

I can only get teh padded flat rate envelopes online, correct? I ordered some last weekend but they haven't gotten here yet and I need to ship something to Japan and it won't fit in the unpadded fre. If I shipped it in a box first class the price jumps to $24.16. I guess people overseas know that they are going to be paying crazy prices for shipping, but still. It seems like so much!

Re: does anyone have a sucessful Ebay store?

Okay, question:

I sold a Baby Gap romper today. The person who bought it has great feedback. It shows as "free shipping", but I had it set to calculate shipping. She hasn't paid yet. The only thing I can think is maybe she is local and wants to pick it up? But I can't see her location. Any ideas?

Here is the listing:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/261091492710?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2F i.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_nkw%3D261091492710%26_rdc% 3D1

If you can't see the link, it is item # 261091492710. Maybe I messed up when listing and it is showing as free shipping as an option? I don't know.

Your post office might have them, but you would have to check first. You can call and ask. Of course, you won't be able to call until Tuesday. I called mine, and they transferred me to another branch/location, about a mile away, and they had them at the second location. They had them behind the desk, so I think they just keep a few on hand, in case anyone needs one, but they don't want to be giving away 20 at a time, kwim?

I see a price for all the shipping options as well! Very strange! Hopefully when she pays, it tacks on the shipping!!

Re: does anyone have a sucessful Ebay store?

I got a few more listings up last night and the waiting is killing me! LOL!! I'm just waiting for SOMETHING to come up green. My prices are on the high end of what I saw other things selling for, so we'll see. I was SO frustrated this morning. My DH was in a ranch rodeo at the county fair in our little town. There are rarely any sales in our town but today there were LOADS and I couldn't go to any of them since we were going to the rodeo. I'm sure everyone must wait for the fair weekend when there are lots of people coming through town for the fair to have their sales, I wish they had just had a bunch yesterday too so I could've hit some up.

Same thing happens to me a lot. Not sure why... I usually notice it on the app. For awhile I was also freaking out that my listings were set to free shipping... but they weren't.
