    Gentlemen -

    Thank you all for your well wishes and support. I really appreciate it. Im excited to offer this as well - as far as I know, this is the first Affiliate Vendor program that actually pays you.

    To touch on a few of your questions and comments :


    Thanks T, Im sure you must be tired of that Ferrari by now, aren't you? ;)


    It was damn near impossible. When my limit of thumbs comments ran out for the day, I felt empty. I look forward to getting back into the swing of things.


    Stitchy addressed it, but that link is a permanent link to all my open B&S listings on SF - at the moment there are none as I have introduced my site/store with a closet cleaning there. But, there will be soon. Hopefully too, as business and traffic to the site increases, this will also drive more traffic to SF B&S which is better for everyones sales.


    This is a very good question, and yes. Its not called "AnythingSwap" :laugh: Its best if you detail the age/condition, and brand and I can generally tell you if its something that will work or not. Size is not so relevant, as my inlaws tell me, "Every pot has a lid" (sounds better in German).



    And may that success start with your closet clean. :)


    Many people tell me that local consignment shops fare decently, but the problem with brick and mortar places is your exposure is limited to a handful of people a day. I have thousands a day.

    The prospect of 40 unworn shoes in your closet sounds unusual, do tell me more about how that happened... :uhoh:



    Working on it... almost snagged that MMM blue racer for you.



    Specifics for this question should probably be best left to PM (check yours, H), but I can pretty much guarantee is a better rate than you will find at your local B&M shops, while almost always fetching better prices.

    Good stuff, Spoo. I have no doubt that you'll succeed.

    Over the past few months, I've been trying to get an eBay consignment business off the ground myself, as another source of income.

    It isn't easy, and Spoo's already got me beat. [​IMG]

    The very best of luck to you in this venture! Though I 'm sure you won't need luck to turn it into a dazzling success. [​IMG]



    One minor suggestion: when the number of items in the shop increases in the future, it might be worth either adding a search filter by size or (probably simpler) listing the tagged size in the item title. If it's there already and I didn't spot it, apologies.

    I just want to say I've done direct business with Spoo, consigning stuff with him, and he is solid, honest, responsive & his checks don't bounce. Rock on, man. Got another package of stuff to send ur way...

    Truth. But don't be discouraged. It takes a long time, patience, and diligence. Don't forget, as I said I have been doing this every day of my life for the past 10 years.


    You are correct, and thanks for the suggestion - Ill certainly try and find a way to expand the search parameters.



    :lol: Send it off mang.


    I know you are but what am I?
