    SHF Radio Episode #73: eBay Spring Seller Update For Collectibles

    in Hobbies

    The collectibles category lives on eBay.  Amazon? Forget about it!  Try doing it yourself with your own website?  Good luck!  So when eBay updates their fees and policies twice a year buyers and especially sellers need to pay attention.  In this episode of Scouting Hot Finds Radio I am going to break down the changes eBay is rolling out to the marketplace on May 1, 2015.  For the most part it's a story of carrots and sticks.  Some of the changers are meant to entice sellers to behave in a way that eBay sees as healthy for the site.  Other changes are meant to rap you over the knuckles if you go against the tide especially if relaunching the same auctions a dozen times was your game. 


    Today's episode is just shy of thirty minutes long and in it I will cover the A-Z of the update.  I will really focus on how this impacts buyers/sellers in the collectibles category where Scouting memorabilia has a home.  At the conclusion I will also share how I think this affects me as an eBay Powerseller with an Anchor level store subscription.  BTW, check out my store at http://www.patchblanket.com to see what I've got up for sale.


    As always you can listen to Scouting Hot Finds Radio (now on episode 73!) on iTunes or Stitcher Radio.  If you want to find the show notes page visit my website at http://www.scoutinghotfinds.com.

    Lets Talk with Rachel & Bennet, Guest Julie Hall

    in Pop Culture

    Huffington Post columnist Rachel Thompson and Critic/writer/columnist for Night Owl Magazine and Affaire De Couer Bennet Pomerantz discuss media topics with guests. Their Guest today is Julie Hall, The Estate Lady


    When Julie Hall moved to Charlotte in 1993 from Texas, she became a full-time entrepreneur by relocating her company The Estate Lady to this area. As her company grew in Charlotte, she continued her education in her field to become a certified personal property appraiser and a certified auctioneer, as well as an estate sale professional. 


    As a popular lecturer to groups dealing with older adult issues and the challenges of dissolving residential accumulation, Hall is making her mark as having not only an eye for personal property appraising but also in predicting personal behavior when valuable property is at stake. She writes and speaks on behalf of seniors, educating them why it is important for them to deal with their personal property before they become infirmed or die. Hall also educates their Boomer children guiding them through the entire process in the event their parents have not already done so.


    Growing up in Texas, Julie received her undergraduate degree in communications from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Upon graduating, she joined the corporate world in Houston as a pharmaceutical and medical devices sales person. Her work consisted of much travel. In her free time in different cities, she visited antique shops and began her interest in antiques and collectibles. As a sideline business to her corporate job, she began The Estate Lady and was mentored by two prominent and well-respected antique and art dealers in Houston. Both mentors provided encouragement and knowledge that is invaluable in her appraisal ability today.
