We are a busy married couple with 3 kids. Husband is a library director and wife is an educator. Kids are big into music, choir, band, and piano. We all love Disney, Miyazaki, and super hero movies. We want to share our love of toys and gaming through our blogging. We also aim to share some tips about selling on eBay and what we have learned over the 5 years we have been doing this. We hope you enjoy our blog!
Bryan started selling gold and silver online via eBay in hopes to earn some extra income. While it was exciting to sell $15,000 worth of silver in one sale, the margins after shipping, eBay fees, PayPal fees, packaging, etc ended up wiping all profits away. The name of the game was volume and in order to do that we had to invest way too much money and it was too much risk to get that much inventory. Have you seen the gold and silver market these last several years...? Anyways, Melissa discovered some nice scores at the local Goodwill thrift stores for personal use and realized that we could resell these thrifted hauls on eBay with much higher profit margins and much less risk. American Silver Eagle Warehouse then became The UnBirthday Shoppe, selling toys, trinkets, and treasures on eBay. We've been doing this for 4 years and have been successful as a part-time side business. We aren't rollin' in the dough with this business, but for a family of five, having a side business pay an occasional cell phone bill, car payment, or vacation sure is nice. We hope to share some of our love of toys, gaming, and things we have learned to effectively sell on eBay. Thank you for reading!
