A milestone day

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.

Oh, man, this is so exciting! When you're ready, I'll put an ad up for you on my pages if you'd like me to.
