From before I joined PF I was a lurker and also an eBay seller but the remarks about ebay sellers kept me quiet on the fact that I was an ebay seller too.
It is time to grab the bull by the horns and say proudly that I sell on eBay. It is not the eBay site but some seller's that give it a bad name. I for one try to be totally honest although I know I will make mistakes. I have learnt a lot, tonnes from the PF and hope to learn a lot more over time.
I studied Gemmology when I was a lot younger but do not have any degrees in pearls, although they are my true love apart from my dogs that is.
After a year of illness I have finally started selling at auction again and trying to keep my site up to 50 so listings at a time. Very hard work. I sold a lot in the last couple of weeks so I need to work hard to get my site but up to what I feel is satisfying to me, let alone any buyers. I would like an online, no bricks shop but just don't know how to go about it. If you know how I can get a sight up and running please let me know. Website easy to work is important and ebay is not easy to work with that way. Corrections at the moment for me at least have to be done within the HTML - not easy. I am computer literate but not high tech. Please check my site out, not for sale but you might be able to help me with any mistaken pearl listings I might have made. I don't think I have but constructive help is always welcome. Hell if you want to buy from me that is okay too
You may think making a dollar on eBay is easy but it is not. Fees are high, work load is enormous and when one is virtually a one woman show it is now wonder I had to have a year off from actively listing.
I do hope what I have written is not against the PF rules but for a long time I have wanted to say I am an eBay seller and proud of it. I am honest, sometime too honest to my own detriment, I offer one off designs and I look after my customers to the extreme.
One more photo of one of my favourite pieces. I do wish I could keep it. I love it.
