I did something I've never done before today. And it may change my life. The potential is there.
Today I went to the state tax commission and got a sales tax permit so I can start an eBay business. I've picked a company name and I've been photographing my products for the past week.
I've also been working with my friend, who is a distributor for several lines of my product. He will be wholesaling to me, so we'll both be making some money on my sales.
So, what's my thing? Can you guess? I suspect not, unless I've told you already. (No fair guessing if you already know.) Go on. Guess. I'll wait a minute. ....
OK, I'll tell you.
I'll be selling knives. Yep, knives. High-end kitchen cutlery, collectible pocket knives, folders, custom knives and assorted others. Some are beautiful works of art. Some are beautifully functional.
I've discarded the motto I first came up with: "Buy my knives or I'll cut you!" It sounded a little harsh, even though it makes my evil inner child laugh.
My seller name will be Sharp Girl. I'll let y'all know when my listings go up.
