Thursday To-Do - It's all about vintage children's books!

Good morning, eBay friends!

I'm still in the midst of my huge listing project here.  Goal:  to get 70 vintage children's books up by the end of the free listing promotion on eBay - Sat. 3/31.

I generally do better with all projects if I can break them into small bite-sized portions.  Yesterday I tackled photos for all these books on one day -- whew!   Way too much.  I took over 600 photos and cropped them all.

Today I plan to make inventory cards for the items, research prices, and (woohoo!) start listing them.   I am looking forward to that.  I really enjoy writing vintage children's book listings, and I get in a rhythm when I can do them one after the next.

Way to go on listing! I'm going to restart in April. Just too much to do right now and not enough hours in the day to get it all done!

Hi Cat, great to hear from you! I actually think April is an ideal time to start. I generally find sales pick up AFTER the free listing promos, when there are fewer items on eBay :-)
