Me and eBay

So I have sold my second item on eBay. Unlike the first time the cost of shipping was on the mark. The item sold for $8.99, the starting bid price. PayPal took $0.79 for their fees and I am assuming that eBay will take their cut as well. When you add everything up I am probably getting a little over $7 for this sell.

On a positive note this is a lot better than the first time in which my cost for shipping was more than total sum of what I received after the sell. However, I am pretty sure I spent a bit more than $8.99 when I had originally bought the item…

Note to self: making a living as an eBay trader does not look to be in your cards.

I've been a huge comic nerd for a long time. It was my dad who first introduced me to comics when I was very young. He gave me his small collection of comics at the time and ever since then I’ve continued to add to it. Over the years I have collected hundreds of comics, toy figures, and other memorabilia. And though I would really love to hang on to them, due to unfortunate circumstances I have to let them go. *sigh* So, the purpose of this blog will be mainly to showcase what I have up for sale on eBay. Most of the items will be comic related memorabilia but I also have a few other “types” of collectables that I hope to be getting rid of as well. And every once in a while in between the post of what I have for sell I may just post some of the crazy ideas that pop-up in my head which of course you can simply choose to ignore. Thanks for stopping by.
