A month later, the ebay test


Over a month ago, I decided to see if I started my auctions at 9.99 if would bring more sales and more importantly with more views would the prices go up. Then I would report back on what happened.

Well, I mainly sold ornaments and the good news is that most everything sold. They didn't go as high as the ornaments that I sold before Christmas, but then it twas the season for ornaments then. I have had so many show deadlines this past month, that I didn't produce enough to really test it properly. I think I need to put more than ornaments on auction. One thing I really liked about starting auctions at the lower price is that my ebay fees have been immensly lower.

So would I continue starting at a lower price? I haven't totally decided if I will do it on a continuing basis. But for today, I thought I'd give it a shot with something other than ornaments - Today I put up an 10"x 8" oil painting titled 'Canine Thoughts'. Now on auction!

This is just darling Catherine, no pun intended! I love cats, but this dog would be a keeper for sure as well. Best of luck with this!

Hi Sheryl, Thanks! I love cats too, but have a couple of grand-dogs and it is fun to have them visit but it's nice when you can send them home. :-)
