07/13/17 Daily Blog

All the 2017 Topps Series 2 Baseball Trading Cards are listed on eBay. is our website, Things are always changing and new products being added. Check back often.

Have to work hard to get things going again. Amazon Prime Day was a bust. Have to designate certain days to certain things to get the $ rolling in again. With the Amazon no media unless you have 3 invoices for the items you sell. Means that eBay gets all the media now. Easy to list. Just have to do it. All the returns are still eating the profits.

Side note - lots of traveling happening right now. Our foster son since March 12, 2015 (2 years and 4 months) is now our adopted son. We knew from day 1. The purpose, the delay and life has made us a family. We just would not change a thing. We are more than blessed and he is our "Superman". No more being vague. He is out of the foster care system. We've changed our last names and his name so that we can be protected as a family.

This is what we use for our business:

I just bought the turbo 450 printer and it works great. I've used the twin turbo for years with no problems. 
We use both of these labels all the time.
Packing Tape:
Scotch Tape:

Other Cleaners:

Goo Be Gone, Brasso and Magic Erasers - All bought at the local Wal-Mart
For those pesky old price stickers we use Magic Erasers and Scotty Peelers.

Shoe Cleaners, polishes, and sprays:
We buy all this at the local Wal-Mart. 
All-Purpose Cleaner: 
This is an excellent cleaner for built up grime, grease, yellowing from cigarette smoke and the like. We used this in the house we moved into. The previous owner smoked in the house. The walls were yellow and the custom cabinets were caked with grease and cigarette smoke. The little garage was used as an extra pantry. The canned goods exploded in the heat and then stuck to the shelves in 1/4" to 1/2" inch think dried up molasses looking spills. We spread it on and we were able to take a putty knife to it about 10 minutes later. This is just an awesome cleaner. 

When I use other items I will gladly add them to my recommendations.
