I, too saw them on the Discovery Channel.

According to the documentary..Not a dime from the "gubment." From what I remember their religion is very supportive and helps, too. AND this woman home schools, too.

There was no talk that I can remember of wanting their children and older ones to leave for college and going out in the world to learn of other ways of life. I could've missed it though.

One of the shows had them traveling across country as TDC traveled along and documented.

While pregnant with my third, my doc told me it was a matter of life and death that I could not have another baby. I wonder what the decision would be if this woman were told the same's a health issue, no more children.

we believed that we had a large enough customer base to support our own venue.

I agree and wholeheartedly.

I've had you on my favorite sellers for years.

If I knew you moved to your own site (I really am not crazy bout Overstock, their CS isn't near what it should be and detest WP) I'd follow your sales.

Good for you!
Good for you!

Congratulations on your decisions.

Keep me apprised..k?

BTW, I have a pending customer service question with your website and will be real happy when I get all registered for your website and will be purchasing.

see where things are being said about them and set the story straight.

You don't cut back drastically if you're happy with how things are going.
This section of ASM is public.
Perhaps Bargainland would care to discuss this issue in the second level which is locked to the public.

If not, I'm impressed they stopped by to backtrack their stats and see where they were being talked about.

I still say testing the waters outside of eBay to see if it's lucrative to cut the apron strings.

Vote Early and Vote Often.

Pinellas County has been on the news this past week ALOT. One of the commissioners sold a chunk of land to the county for 255,000. He'd had it on the open market for 49,000 but didn't get any bites. So he put it up to the county commissioners and raised the price five times and the commission voted to buy this little piece of land for the 255,000 price.

Uhhhhhhhhh... Can you count how many ways this is wrong?

Now the elected officials are talking to the grand jury, talking out of both sides of their mouths in interviews and avoiding tv camera's at all costs.

Our elected officials at work. Yeah, right.

There's a bridge in Tampa...a smaller one..but still it's getting closed. I still remember the Sunshine Skyway collapsing just like it was yesterday.

The news had a local fella with his son in a boat underneath the bridge that got closed...awful. Just awful. Steel exposed, crumbling concrete, huge hunks of concrete just gone.

He stated he'd been trying to get someone to pay attention to the deterioration for years and years and years. Yesterday they closed it after all of his years of trying.

Sad when it takes a major collapse to get those that are supposed to look out for our well-being to actually do something for the people they are serving.

The beaurocracy of our government and it's officials makes me so angry I could just spit nails.

I sold there many moons ago.

It was alright...but not that great for me.

My ioffer sales still come up in Google searches though.
When I sell ticket stubs, Postcards, etc.   I will cut up a mailing box and sandwich the content between 2 pieces of cardboard.  This is great to keep the content from getting bent and it also qualifies the package (regardless of weight) for thickness to be shipped by 1st class using paypal. 
Nice tip Jeff. I didn't know the part about qualifying the package for 1st class
<busted out laughin at BF>

Good one.

I have to say that I feel differently.

I purchased from them, the pics were of the actual item both times. I just viewed their auctions and their website pics and it appears to me that they are using original pics of items just as when I purchased from them.

The auctions stated out and out that they could not guarantee the condition of my purchase as the items were still in their original packing and were sealed.

I was happy with both of my purchases, saved scads of money and I knew the risks I was taking buying the items....because I read the star system/disclaimer on the auctions.

It was a 50/50 chance but I didn't go in NOT knowing as their ads stated clearly the above.

If I hadn't been happy with the items when they came...I wouldn't have negged them as this statement is on each auction:

This item appears brand new or factory sealed and we believe it to be in complete and perfect functioning condition. As with all liquidation products this is sold 'as is' and what you see in the photo is what you are bidding on.


This item appears to be in 'like new' or 'excellent' condition. This product may have been 'open box product' or it may have been briefly used for a short period of time. The product appears to be complete (but we can not be 100% certain) and should perform all intended uses / functions (although we do not test in depth). If this product is electronic in nature we have confirmed that it does power on / boot up, however, we do not have the time or knowledge to test full functionality. As with all liquidation products this is sold 'as is' and what you see in the photo is what you are bidding on.


Maybe their playing both markets or all markets or in the middle of testing the waters to see if they can successfully sell from their own Premier Site.

I've purchased from them several times and knew what I was bidding on before it arrived. They state they buy from liquidators and more. I never understood the gripings from buyers that the items weren't as described, when clearly they were with the disclaimer. All it would've taken is a buyer actually READING the auction...imagine that.

I was very pleased by what I received and the condition in which it came.

Best of luck to them and thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Hope the O works out better for them than me.

I'd love to have that I'm watching it.
Ok...ya'll can see that BT clearly invited the slapping..hahahahaha

^Vintage/Kim...hahahaha...I've been known to talk just a bit. I think the proper term is yammering on and on. <wink>

#9 - Talk it up!
There's always the opportunity to promote your business by letting other people know what you do and how it could benefit them. This doesn't mean that you talk about nothing else, but there are bound to be chances to talk about your business that crop up during normal conversation.
All great suggestions.

The number 9 came in handy this morning. My Physical Therapist and I were discussing our "dawgs." She then noted how unsafe it is now to buy store bought food for all of their pets...along with treats. All the recalls and more had made her wary.

I told her I sell Dog, Cat, Horse and Bird Treats..including dog food, doggie cakes and ice creams.

My PT placed an order.

The woman to the left of me stated she'd be game for the doggie cake and ice cream in three months.

Gotta nice order from the woman being "tortured" next to me before I walked out the door. 

I had two personal checks in my hand when I walked out for Dixie Dawg Treats. And the promise of another sale in three months.   

I didn't have any brochures with me either...I just talked bout my products and I KNOW the prices by heart. I did have a couple of business cards though and got those out to the persons who were buying from me.

Talk your business up...of course it helps that I'm a talker, too.
