Another year starts, time for fresh ideas, fresh projects and more important, a better view.
It's been 4 years since we decided to make our little eBay sales setup into a real legal business. We incorporated ourselves as a legal business identity in 2016 in the state of OREGON. We had faced many challenges, failed many times but we are still determined to make our plans and dreams a reality. As I sit down to write this blog, I realized how much have changed in the last couple of years. I've struggled with sleep apnea for some time now, but it was during 2017 and 2018 that it was the worst. I technically passed those two years half asleep. Today after more than 8 months of treatment, I can see and think more clearly. This few lines that I had written so far in less than 20 minutes would have taken me more than an hour to write with much more effort and less clarity. This renew energy and clarity will help us into restructuring our company, goals and mission to its next level.
One of those changes already took effect. EBay was a great site to sell our toys back when we started. Unfortunately eBay had change its business model and had become a over saturated marketplace where small businesses like ours do not thrive unless you buckle to lower your profit line to be able to sell as cheap as other do. I want to sell affordable recovered toys, new toys, collectible toys to persons that will cherish those toys, but eBay has become a playground for speculators and cheap imitators.
Our solution is simple, get rid of eBay and start our own web store linked directly to this website so we can start offering our toys more directly to the public.
This is a new year, one more time to restart what we love to do, recover toys to offer them at people that would love, want and desired them.
