The 100 Best Things I've Sold on eBay is a fascinating case study of 100 of the author's auction experiences on eBay as she successfully transitioned her grandmother's antique business from a storefront in Bellingham, Washington, to the online marketplace. Lynn Dralle, The Queen of Auctions, tells her story, and her grandmother's, as she recounts each auction. She give a brief history of each item, how she came to acquire it, how she priced and listed the item on eBay, how it sold, and for how much, along with pictures.
This book is presented in such a unique format, with great pictures and design, story and heart--it's very easy and enjoyable to read. It is much more than a catalog-ish 100 Best, because Lynn Dralle is one heck of a writer and storyteller, and crafted this book into a wonderful story of family, history, relationships, travel, and ultimately, a single mother, taking up her legacy, following her passion, and building a business to support herself and her children.
100 Best Things is a great book to learn how to eBay. It is also an inspiring story for entrepreneurial women, a primer of hope for those who may be searching for a way to build a career and a business around life and responsibilities with children.
