Sanat Boot Camp - Funny Video

You can find anything on eBay, from someones life to a Rick James jumpsuit, complete with bloodstains. So, for your reading pleasure I have compiled a list of some crazy items currently being auctioned off on eBay.

How about Moose Dropping Ear Rings???

For those of you who fall into the category of moose enthusiast, these are the perfect gift for you. Petrified moose droppings you can wear as earrings. This is real moose poo found in the Alaskan wilderness and brought to you by trendy LA / NY boutiques. Fashionable Feces, what will this Project Runway Generation think of next?

OK, this video has nothing to do with Ebay or but it's hilarious:

Merry Christmas Frederick!

Selling on
When you sell in the Amazon Marketplace you place your items in front of millions of customers-- your items are displayed right alongside those carried by! There are no fees unless you sell.

Start selling now:
  • List your items

  • Get orders

  • Ship

  • Get paid

  • Fees and Pricing
    Amazon collects fees only when your item sells. At that time, Amazon collects your sales price and shipping costs from the buyer, deducts a commission of 6 to 15 percent of the sales price, a per-transaction fee of $0.99, and a variable closing fee. The $0.99 per-transaction fee is waived for Pro Merchant Subscribers.

    Commission rates are as follows:
  • Amazon Kindle = 15 percent

  • Automotive parts and accessories = 12 percent

  • Camera and photo = 8 percent

  • Cell phones and accessories = 15 percent

  • Computers = 6 percent

  • Electronic items = 8 percent

  • Items in the Everything Else store = 15 percent

  • Musical instruments = 12 percent

  • Watches = 13 percent

  • All other product lines = 15 percent

  • Full Disclosure: To date I've not sold anything on either Ebay nor
    But to tell you the honest to God truth... it's because it takes money to sell on Ebay and from what I've seen it doesn't take money to sell on!

    I can't GET PAID from without paying a fee of some kind, but with Ebay if you don't have the're just S.O.L.

    I was just about to throw this blog away when I read an article on saying that Ebay's traffic is down (I do search engine optimization so website traffic is how I make my living) and is taking over the Online Auction spotlight.

    Will keep you posted as to how all this turns out.

    If it makes me money, it'll make you money (and if set it up for you and charge a small fee it'll make both of us money!!)

    about to throw this blog away...

    Ebay is waning, is waxing.

    Ebay star is falling and is apparently the ones who made Ebay fall.

    Ebay has problems, problems that doesn't

    Whats that you say? You thought was for books only?

    Think again. is the new replacement for Ebay, does it:
  • Better

  • Faster

  • Cheaper

  • Originally I started this blog for Hurley Enterprises in Frederick Maryland.

    They don't seem to want it... so I'll use it
