We started on a 5-year plan more than 10 years ago to pack up the motorhome and retire; 32 years of gathering a bunch of 'whatever it is' we came to a decision that if it doesn't fit in the motorhome -- "out it goes." Thus started our online selling adventure. Our goal yielded two things: an accumulation of even more stuff and a nice income -- we have now made this a business -- an adventure in itself.
Needless to say, we're hooked. The yard and estate sales, auctions, and people GIVING us just about everything under the sun; our listing efforts haven't even scratched the surface of what we have collected.
We live in a rural desert area and had learned how to recycle stuff that has been illegally dumped. We would fix them up or turn it into "yard art" that make up ponds, walkways, entertainment areas, gardens -- the list is endless. With online selling, we can "adopt" out our little treasures to new homes, whether it be a can opener or a Picasso.
Not being set in concrete, we have adventured out into new merchandise and niches of interest, as well. We now have three booths here on Bonanza with a new one coming soon; two web sites, and a blog -- whew!
We look forward to meeting you soon! Come by, say hello and enjoy some of our great cyber coffee and snacks :)
