As many of you are aware, Doug and I had a very successful eBay business for about 10 years before we went on the road. The plan was that we would continue to sell on eBay on the road. It didn't work that way and not for lack of trying.
We sold books on eBay. Mostly childrens' books. We discovered very early on in our new life that our sources, thrift stores mainly, did not have the books we were looking for. We admit that we were quite particular about the condition of the books we sold. We always said that if we found a new niche, we would begin again.
The new niche has not presented itself. However, the other day my father gave me my mothers Hummel figurines. So today I sat down and listed them on eBay. In the past, we always used the Buy It Now feature, but we are not sure about the saleability of collectibles so I put them up in auction form. Now we wait.
The odd one is a Royal Doulton figurine. She should do quite well. The one that is likely to bring the best (about $120.00) is The Chimney Sweep.
