Time to Sell Halloween Costumes on eBay

Halloween costumes are good sellers on eBay year round and I always look for them when visiting garage sales and thrift stores. Now is the time to get them listed in your store as the Halloween rush is starting.

Look for costumes at members clubs (like Sam’s and Costco), Dollar Stores, Walmart, Target, Old Navy, Big Lots, Kohl's, garage sales, and thrift stores. Watch for costumes to go on clearance after Halloween and stock up on them to sell at Christmas time. Many costumes are reduced up to 75% after Halloween is over.

New SAHM eBay Seller Group on Facebook

I wanted to make everyone aware of the new Stay at Home Moms Selling on eBay Group on Facebook. (anyone can join, you don't have to be a SAHM.) The eBay Coach forum will gradually be phased out and I hope everyone will join the group to continue our networking and support system.

I received an email from Free Forums about some changes – changes that I am not happy with. The advertising banners have become rather sleazy and the forum seems to attract a large number of spammers and non-eBay sellers.

Many of us are on Facebook daily doing other things. I think we will have more participation using a Facebook group. The interface is easier for moderating posts, and to be honest, Facebook is the place to be. They recently reported passing the 100million user mark.

If you don’t have a Facebook account, don’t worry. You can create a profile in just a few minutes and it is free. Here are a few tips about how Facebook can help you grow your business, network, and find customers.

I hope this change will not inconvenience anyone, but this is definitely a change for the better! I look forward to seeing you on Facebook, and be sure to send me a friend request!
