I love it !!! It gives me hope to keep working toward getting on ebay.
How long did you do straight auction before doing your store?

We started the store in December of 2003. We are on eBay doing auctions since 1999.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! Wonderful news!!!!!!

Get in touch with this customer... perhaps they are buying your works for resale in their store or gallery. If so, you could supply them directly with more, future artworks without eBay costs.

Oh WOW, keep up the good work :D :clap:

Dorith you deserve it!! Itís so good to hear good things happening to good people! :)

Peter, when will your marketing lessons be ?!

Peter, when will your marketing lessons be ?!

Don't know. It is problematic. Here are some of the reasons:

I do consulting for money. If I give free lessons, it's like giving away free paintings. I could do it if my bank forgets the money I owe them.
If I tell you all the secrets, Conni's sales might drop.

That's absolutely fantastic! Major congratulations!! :clap:
What do you mean by store, a real, building store or an eBay store?

Good for you!!! :D

01-20-2004, 07:21 PM
it's an ebaystore...don't have the nerve, patience or money for a real, touchable store.

01-20-2004, 10:16 PM
That's absolutely wonderful!! :) So happy for you! And very inspiring, keep up the great work! :clap: :clap:
