My Old Store

Well, I was doing some reminiscing tonight about a business I used to run. I started it with only $300, and it just grew fast. It was pretty much just on eBay. I used to sell Dessert Beauty and Dessert Treats items by Jessica Simpson. I also sold purses, Victoria's Secret lotions, all sorts of girly things that smelled yummy!

It ended up growing so much my hubby started getting involved in the business with me. He would help set up for photographs and we actually made a couple of trips to Canada and countless trips all over New England to buy inventory. I think I was one of the largest sellers of Dessert products on eBay at the time. Here are some photos of my inventory.

These are body mists, frostings...
perfumes, frostings, bath gels...
lotsa lip gloss sets, cupcake perfumes...
lots of stuff...
this is only a small part of all the cases and boxes I had.

I shipped all over the world: Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Europe...

This was one of the most fun times of my life. I love all the adventures I had running all over the Northeast trying to buy up entire inventories from stores.

So, do you no longer have all of this inventory or do you still sell on ebay? I remeber when the Jessica Simpson stuff got really popular. Do they even still make it? Love your blog BTW.
