Default I became an eBay seller by acident

Hi Margaret,

Those ghosts are defintely unique. Good luck with them.

I became an eBay seller when a friend of mine brought me two grocery bags full of Drug Rep Pens. They are pens with the names of different medications on them.

"Jokingly" he said to sell them on eBay because people will buy anything. Sure enough. I did an eBay search for one of the pens and found that their is a fair demand for these pens. I have sold 10 pens and a cork note pad for $13. I just listed more pens this weekend and on one of my auctions (for 5 pens) the latest bid is for $21.50 plus S&H.

Sure it's chump change, but it pays for the gas for the week. Not only that, but they will help raise my feedback rating for bigger and better items.

It's been an interesting learning experience.
