030724 I Am OVER The Rain, An EBay Class…. & New Arrivals!

Happy Thursday! I know we need the rain, but I am OVER it! I moved to California from Bellingham, WA for one BIG reason! I couldn’t live in the rain anymore and here I am living in Bellingham, CA as my brother calls it!

Thank you to everyone who has come in to see the store redo…your facial expressions make it all worth it!

4 Days of hustle and bustle and somehow we pulled it off…thank you to my amazing team!

Here are some of us on that grand reopening day. Whale, Indiana, me, Val, Sandy, Susan, Cindy, Tina and Kay.

Do you see that little red cash register on the counter?  Well, that was mine from when I was a kid.  I keep it on the shelf behind the front desk and as we were deep in the redo, I happened to see it and mentioned it to my mom….

I said “Mom, do you remember when I used to make art in my room in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada when I was 3…and I would tape it on my walls with prices and sell it to whomever came to our house?”

Of course, she remembered and I told her “I loved playing store and selling my artwork for 5 to 25 cents each and I kept all my money in that little red cash register.”

Fast forward to the grand reopening and I get the most beautiful bouquet of flowers from my mom with a card that read….

“Hi Lynn, Have A Fabulous Year ‘Playing’ Store…Luv, Mom”.  Awwwwww

I am so excited to announce that I have rescheduled the eBay class.  This is a short 4 hour class and you will leave with an item or 2  listed on eBay.  You will also learn some of the most important things to know and do when selling on eBay.

I will be sending some lessons to you by email in the days leading up to the course so that we are all on the same page.

To be eligible to take this class, you must be computer savvy and own a laptop which you will bring to the class.  You will also bring several items to list!

It will be Tuesday, March 19th from noon to 4 pm.  I am only taking 4 students.  Price is $297 and you will receive a goodie bag.  Fun Fun!

I won’t be offering a class this reasonably priced in the future, so if you are on the fence, you should jump in!

To give you a point of reference my 2 1/2 day eBay seminars back in the day at the La Quinta Resort were priced at $2,997.

It will be a blast and I am so excited to get back into teaching others how to make extra money from home. Please email me with any questions. Space is limited so here is a link to sign up.

It will be modeled after my 6 week on-line Six Step Course, but since it is in person you will still get the same benefits. And yes, that is a really OLD photo of me!

Here is more info about the course……

Maybe you need to earn some extra cash; maybe you just want to clean out your garage but don’t want the hassle of a garage sale. Maybe you inherited some antiques and don’t know how to turn them into money, or you need to supplement a fixed income. Whatever the reason for needing some extra CASH, Lynn Dralle has the solution! AND she is going to share her tips and tricks so you can make that solution work for you!

Lynn is offering her first ever live in Ventura course to teach you the basics of selling on eBay. Even if you have been selling on eBay for a while, this course will still teach you more than enough to make it worth your while.

In most classes, the teacher lectures while the students listen. Not in Lynn’s course! Lynn actually expects you to list something in front of her :).

What has been keeping you from making a go of selling on eBay? Maybe you found the listing process overwhelming. Maybe you couldn’t find the time to acquire all the technical knowledge eBay seems to require. Maybe you just found the whole prospect intimidating. Maybe you have sold things on eBay, but didn’t have much success getting the prices you hoped for. If so, then this is just the course for you. Lynn Dralle will show you just how easy and profitable selling on eBay can be.

Here is what some of Lynn’s recent graduates have to say about her course:  Keep in mind that these testimonials are about my ecourse….but you will be getting this knowledge in PERSON.  Even better!

“I enrolled in Lynn’s eCourse and turned my business around completely. By following Lynn’s carefully written instructions and applying them to my eBay site I now have over 1100 listings and continue to grow both in sales and knowledge.

Let me share with you one of my sales – I found a dinnerware set – Villeroy and Boch, Riviera pattern at a local resale shop. I paid $12.00 for the entire set, including lots of serving pieces. To date I have sold over $700.00 of this pattern and still have some pieces available. This was truly a remarkable experience.

Lynn’s eCourse showed me how to enhance my listings, how to take better pictures, where to look for merchandise, how to pack and ship to prevent breakages and much, much more. And now, the Queen of Auctions has her own binder on my bookshelf. I constantly refer back to the materials that I printed and I count her as one of my friends. She is always there to help.

Without this course it would have taken me years to learn what I now know. I am so very grateful. Time = Money and that’s what I got from this course – more sales, sales, sales!!!

– Auntie Suzi”

“I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the work you have put into this course. I taught at the College Level and you are one of a very few who knows how to transfer knowledge into learning -hallelujah!!!

– Cauleen Viscoff, Canada”

“My goodness, what a home run you hit with this lesson! It is so full of great information that I had to go over it several times. You are an outstanding teacher; I have put some of your lessons to use this week and that saved me a few costly mistakes. Thanks again for giving us such valuable information.

– Margaret (Peggy) McIlvain Texas”

“Just wanted to let you know I am really enjoying the lessons. As the Young people would say, you have really ‘turned me on’ to this eBay thing.

-Shirley Jones, Texas”

And just for fun, here is another one of my recent eBay scores. Paid $20 for it and sold it for a best offer of $150. Check out the listing here.

I will be writing a full length ezine over the upcoming weekend for publication next Thursday.  I will be out in the desert visiting my best friends for a few days.  Sooooo looking forward to a break.  I feel like I have been at the store 24/7 for the past 3 months!
