Retired: twice the time, half the money! How true is that! Well, now that I have twice as much time on my hands (NOT!), I thought it was time to join the hundreds - or is it thousands? - of folks who are bloggers. So, welcome to my blog!
I love to go treasure hunting at thrift stores, garage and yard sales, rummage sales, estate sales, flea markets, etc. ... and have been known to do a little dumpster diving! Haven't had as much luck with alley finds, although have found a few goodies on sidewalks and along freeway shoulders!
I'm also a seller on eBay ... what else would I do with all those really great vintage finds? I've been selling and buying on eBay since 1999 and I think eBay still offers opportunities for folks to find one-of-a-kind treasures and for the sellers who offer those one-of-a-kind items to make money. So, last year - with the anticipation of retiring - I decided to become serious about selling on eBay. It's been trial and error, but every sale keeps me motivated ... and I keep at it!
I started this blog to highlight some of the great treasures that I have found and sold on eBay in the hope that it would help others who would like to do the same. Whether you're looking to supplement your income, save for a special event, or make a living with eBay, the opportunities are still there. You just have to know how to find them!
DH and I have been married since 1983. We have two great sons who are both in college. I also have a daughter and 5 grandchildren. DD and her family live out of state, so I don't get to see them very much. At least once a year, I go visit for about a week. But we keep in touch via email and phone on a regular basis.
... and we go to Hawaii ...
