Just came across this and thought it was a good read about a new e-commerce website

* E-commerce In The News / Re: Supreme Court Ruling Affects eSellers

Many people do not think about one of the major causes of the retail brick and mortar apocalypse: There are too many stores. At one time, we had 5-6 times more stores per capital than in Europe. Maintaining that type of asset and infrastructure protection is expensive. The landscape for retail brick and mortar is not going to get better for a long time. Many companies are still trying to expand whereas others are trying to downsize. Until a good equilibrium is found, you will continue to see retail in the news.

At our local mall area, there are so many empty storefronts. Inside the mall is even worse. Sears is empty, Dillard's is empty, the food court only has like 4 or 5 stores. There are only two restaurants where you can gain entry directly from outside as well as inside the mall. An empty Walmart across the street from the mall as well as two mainly empty shopping strips, an empty Toys R Bust store, 5 or 6 vacant restaurants surrounding the mall, and I could go on and on. That's just the mall area. The city north of us on Lake Erie is about 10 times worse since the steel mill and ship yard shuttered. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of empty commercial buildings, churches, homes that should be condemned but aren't, etc.

Too many stores in any area will eventually make for a lot of empty storefronts, especially when your stupid mayor and city officials allow companies to suck up empty lots and build instead of steering them toward revitalizing existing commercial buildings that have been vacant for years (and in some cases, well over a decade).

Some may call it a jack knife....I call it a sling blade.

For some unknown reason, I just noticed this thread and took a look at website.com. It looks to be pretty cool, initially. Right now I am too tired at 3 a.m. to really look but some of the stuff reminds me of Bonanza (a little). I like the subscription prices. Seems to be a lot of templates to choose from, also. I'll have to look more at that when if I get a chance.

So glad you are doing well with eBay.
It's not a dead venue as some have said.
Just this week I purchased 4 items from them.
I have so much to list, hubby needs to get pics and measurements for me.

Heh, I did that on a hot seller that my other two main competitors were out of stock and weren't available for shipping for almost a week. I made out like a bandit on that one. Sold around 35-40 units that day and made a couple hundred extra profit on the mark-up.
