First Post

Hi blog world! I'm 28, living in Southern California with my husband 2 kids. My son turns one tomorrow and my daughter is 6 years old. I recently became a stay at home mom/wife when I was laid off from my job of 8 years at the end of 2010. After getting over the shock, I have to admit I was a bit thrilled that I could spend more time with my babies. I had also started selling our old things on ebay and was making extra money and having a lot of fun doing it. When my mother in law visited, I would drive her to yard sales, one of her favorite things to do. I started buying brand name clothes I recognized and started listing them on ebay as well and my sales kept increasing. My parents and husband encouraged me to turn my hobby into a business. I thought, "why not"? If I can still bring in income AND get to be home with my kids...WHY NOT?! I still plan on going back to work, but for now this is my journey. Stick around while I learn the ins and outs of shopping and selling online.

  1. Sorry to read about your layoff ... this economy is horrible. But it may have been a blessing in disguise as you can spend more time with your babies. They grow up so fast and every minute with them is precious. Selling clothes on eBay has been a financial boost for me too and I have the ladies at My Dear Trash to thank. Good luck on your new eBay venture!
