... has increased quite healthily. Perhaps not quite as much as I'd have liked, overall, but it's increased and that's the main thing. Archery stuff was looked on favourably and all bar 4 items sold. I got silly money for some of it. Way over what the item could be bought for new in some cases. Things I thought would command a really good price didn't get quite as much as I'd hoped for but other items got a lot more than I would ever have thought. Even my quiver, although good quality leather and not a cheap item when bought, sold for more than I was expecting. Really surprised me as I was going to throw it out but thought I'd put it on for 99p and see what happened. Surprised me 'cos it had my name on it. I'm hoping the person who bought it really did realise that as her name was Jo. She's either bought it as a present or she didn't notice, despite pointing it out in the heading and the description. Still, her problem if she didn't - lol! Anyway, it's either all on it's way to new owners, received by new owners, or waiting to be collected by new owners. It's been a busy few days trying to find suitable packing, trips to the post office, arranging couriers and making appointments. I'm acting as sales manager for hubby who has some items for sale relating to air target shooting. He's never sold on eBay himself and it's looking likely he'll not be doing it any time soon himself. I'm having to answer questions, Best Offers and the like. He's now found some more 'stuff' he tells me! I think he needs a lesson in listing and selling - lol!
Photo books have been received and to say I'm pleased with them is an understatement. I've now got another Christmas present - granddaughter's prom record - and a photographic record of 2012. I've started cleaning out the files for 2013. Italian holiday photos have been sorted and uploaded to the relevant site, so I've a smaller selection for that book. I've also cleaned the files for 2012 ready to go on disc. Unfortunately the discs I want (archival ones) are out of stock at the moment so they'll have to wait. Think this photo business is going to be a life time's work as I'm trying to get them in order, clear out the rubbish ones and put them to disc in years. A lot of work just from the digi photo side without those that go back pre digi and need scanning and sorting.
Not sure what pics to add to this post - there's just so many ...
Last June our next door 'forever' neighbours moved. They were living next door when we moved here in 1988. How long before that I don't know. They were left a property in a flatter part of the area so they had it modernised and moved there ... they are both well into their 70s and one has knee problems the other, hips. It made sense. Property was bought by a guy for his daughter, who subsequently moved in 3 weeks later, after it had been modernised. The new occupant is a young, unmarried Mum with a toddler (and now another on the way). A few days later we met another of the new occupants and who has become a very regular visitor. Not always welcome, I have to say. Not when she finds the open fanlight window in our bedroom and visits at 1 o'clock in the morning! I think she thinks she has 2 homes. The one where she can come for a cuddle and peace and quiet and the one where she gets fed. She doesn't here as we've tried not to encourage her but that may change come November as we've now been asked if we'll feed her while the neighbour goes on holiday ... as she visits us anyway - lol!
Honey ... making herself comfie on hubby's wheelchair. A British Blue - I think.
