I have had a number of people ask me about my eBay store. Â you can visit it here.Â
Â I have been in the needlework business off and on for over 32 years. Â I ran a business out of my house in California to Marine officers wives selling them stitching supplies. Â I was a buyer for a chain in New Jersey. I had a store in Parker, Colorado and a store in Layton, Utah.Â
There has been a lot of talk around the eBay community that an “expert” said that those listing on eBay and that are crazy about it are really not selling with mobile and are being paid by eBay to promote Mobile. Â WRONG!!!!! Â I use the eBay Mobile app for IPhone and IPad and list 100% on mobile. Â I have some older listings that still need cleaned up as I move ahead to be mobile friendly. I have been using mobile totally since 2010 right after I attended eBay on Location. Â
eBay is promoting mobile because it is the future. (expert says it is to keep the shareholders happy). Â Young adults, grandmas, mother’s on the go, business people Â all use it. Â Get on the train and let’s go.Â
To get rid of some of the falsehoods by this expert. Â
You can use HTML in mobile with no problem.Â
You can use bullets in mobile with no problem. Why would you? Â Google Shopping does not allow it!
I do not get paid a dime to endorse eBay Mobile. I use mobile because it makes me money. Â
The year is up and running and I am still behind. 2013 will see big changes at Stitchery X-Press. We will continue to keep a large presence on eBay at www.BubbaCanDance.com. We have decided to close our Amazon store this year and move to our own site to clear out the more than 20,000 cross stitch patterns accumulated over the years. Some may ask why not sell them on eBay or Amazon? The reason… pricing. Most of the books are older, out of print and not big money makers but still valuable to collectors and cross stitchers that want to stitch the patterns. We hope to have our web guy, Drew, get us up in the next few weeks and you will see us up and going at www.stitcheryxpress.com. For those that have asked over and over, yes the aviation designs will be out this year. We have 40 that we have complete patterns for and need to get a new logo and new models stitched and reprinting but we are about ready to go once those things are done. You will see patterns for some great airplanes from history from Piper Cubs to F-18’s with P=51 adn B-24 and B-17 in the mixture.
I also will be making a number of videos with my friend Scott Henshaw about all things eBay and PayPal. Watch for those.
Off to figure out Opencart for the new website.
See you soon
