~* MOST FAQ *~

HOT Pictures, Images and Photos

Anytime I tell people that I sell on eBay, the first question they ask is "What do you Sell? Which I reply "EVERYTHING!!" Immediately following my reply is, "Where do you find your Inventory?" and of course I say, "EVERYWHERE!!" Not because I am trying to be elusive, but simple put; it really is the truth.

I get Free items from Friends, Family, Craiglist and Freecycle. I find Discounted items at Big Lots, Dollar stores, Walmart, Target, Drug stores, Grocery stores, and Flea markets. I also shop Garage Sales, Consignment stores and Thrift Stores.

Recently a topic came up about a Discounted Hot List that is being Sold on the web and eBay. I have heard many complaints from people that have spent their hard earned money on this list. Why? The number one complainant is it is OUTDATED!! I am apart of eBay Underground (EBUG)on Facebook, we too have a Discounted Hot List that we offer our members for FREE!! This is a CURRENT list of things you can find right now! Many of the eBay groups have "LISTS" that they are willing to share with their Members, there is no need to spend your hard earn money. Another good way to find items is with Terapeak. They have a HOT RESEARCH option, that enables you to look up the Current Hot Auctions on eBay. The key really is Research!

~* eCommerce *~

eCommerce is an up and coming way to do business. I have really been keeping up with listing in my eBay Store. This has generated some good income for me. I was thinking of other ways to get my store and products out there. Here are a few that I am using....

Addoway allows sellers to import their eBay listings quickly and easily, which could be a huge draw to eBay sellers looking to expand their reach and integrate other sales channels into their business plans. Addoway doesn't charge any fees to list and sell items on their website.  And with the integration of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, sellers are able to provide a much greater amount of information about themselves, as well as establish possible connections with buyers and other sellers based on their relationships on Facebook and other social networking sites, designed ideally to increase the level of trust between buyers and sellers.
Get cash back when shopping online. Refer your friends and earn even more. It's easy, fast and FREE! Link up your eBay Store, your Etsy Shop or your Amazon Marketplace!

This is how I get my $$. By now, everyone has heard of Paypal, which is owned by eBay. This is the best and safest way to pay for Online Transactions.
I use for my International Shipping needs and you should try it out.  Use this code to sign up, C-94HZ-QMB, and you will get a $100 offer which includes a digital scale and $45 in postage. Saves me time and gas money, because I can request them to come pick up the packages! They even have a free account for eBay sellers.

I use my SwagBucks for Gift Cards. Simply using their search engine before another can get me SwagBucks several times a day.  I have over 6500 SwagBucks right now, I am saving up for my daughter's Graduation in June.
It's a new members-only site where everything is free and you can get some cool stuff without spending any money. You give away the things you no longer need (I list my eBay duds), and get things you want for free.

It's all done using free credits instead of real money. Most people start with 100 credits, but this invitation gives you 150  to get more when you start. I'm already in and you can get started by clicking this special link:

I really love the site and hope you do too! Become a Fan and I will return the favor.

All of these sites link back to my Social Networking Sites:

KV Creative Designs on Facebook

KV Creative Designs on Twitter

Being apart of different Groups on Facebook, such as the eBay Underground Group (EBUG) also allows for more exposure to listings as well as help from fellow sellers. It is Awesome having a Support Group that I can check in anytime and always feel Welcomed.

How are you building your business?  Are you using eCommerce sites? I would love to hear about your adventures too!

~* Learning from Mistakes *~

As most of you know, I shop stores to find treasures to sell on eBay. Lately I have been really off my game. I bought a Tommy Bahama Silk Shirt. I knew it would sell making me a good profit. I had put it away for a bit.

Recently, I pulled out the box that had this and several other upscale items in it. My daughter had done a Fantastic job of taking the pics.  I realize I probably should have ironed it but, oh well.  As, I was in the process of listing it, I uploaded the pictures, got the description all written and was ready to launch. I always Preview my auctions before actually uploading to eBay. That is when I saw this....

My daughter caught it, but didn't say a thing. Ugh.

Today, I was looking for a SOLD item in one of my bins when I noticed that this NWT Beautiful Cashmere/Silk Sweater has a Blue stay on the inside of the hem. It almost looks like Koolaid. How did I miss that?

Over the weekend when I was out Thrifting at an Upscale Shop, I came across a Hermes Bag. I was in love and wanted it. The store was having a 35% sale, so I indulged on something for myself. I was in a hurry and really didn't look over the bag too well. The store is usually really good about either catching things or at least putting "AS IS" on the tag, but lately I have found alot of there items either are stained, have a hole or something is missing.  So what is wrong with the bag you ask?

This is not my bag, but one like it. Mine is a Beautiful Burgundy color See where the lock is?  See the medal part that goes over the lock to lock the purse?  One of them is missing. It was unlocked when I bought it and hiding under those flaps. Sigh  I am debating on taking it back, but I am almost positive they will not refund me my money.  I am sooo sad  :(

However, this is a lesson learned.  I will be far more careful about my purchases now. I can't afford to be out the money. And sometimes these lessons are expensive.

~* Friends Helping Friends *~

Last month when my Soxy was diagnosed with Feline Diabetes, I needed insulin for him but could not afford it. A woman that I had known from High School stepped up and offered some Insulin to me, after I had posted on Facebook. I offered her compensation, something from my eBay store, or make her jewelry. She didn't want anything in return. Thanks to her, my Soxy is on the mend! Thank YOU Allison!

Now it is my turn to Pay It Forward. I am apart of a Facebook Group called eBay Underground. The group is for eBay Sellers, we share secrets to selling and more! It is a wonderful group!! Recently, we learned of a friend that is in jeopardy of losing her home to Foreclosure. We all wanted to help and brainstormed on how we could help her. She has put up an auction and we are Supporting her 100%! I hope you will take a look, bid if you can. Perhaps let others know by Tweeting, posting on your Social Network pages or your Blog.

If you would like to just bid and not wait for the Auction to end. Here is the lising: Rare Puget Sound Beach Rocks

If you thrive on the competitive nature of true Auctioning then this is the Auction for you: Save the Mortgage Beach Rocks

Even if you can not afford to bid yourself, perhaps you could pass the info along in an way! Thank you!
