The 100 Best Things I've Sold on eBay My Story--by The Queen of Auctions - The 100 Best Things I've Sold, 1 Author:Lynn Dralle An entertaining, touching, and inspiring chronicle of its author's most memorable eBay adventures, The 100 Best Things I've Sold on eBay uses the world of online auctions as the setting for a personal story of friendship, loss, and growth. Lynn Dralle is the granddaughter of Cheryl Leaf, an antiques dealer and larger-than-life personalit... more »y who passed away in August of 2000 at the age of 88. Lynn literally grew up in the antiques business; she started accompanying her grandmother to antique shows at the age of seven, and over the years came to depend not only on her grandmother's business insights, but on her wisdom, strength of character, and humor. Near the end of her grandmother's life, Lynn returned home to help run the family antiques store. She eventually began buying and selling on eBay to pay for her grandmother's nursing home expenses. As Lynn weaves memories of her time with her grandmother into stories about the items she has sold on eBay, she creates a book that is partly a memoir of the woman who inspired and brought together the entire family and partly a behind-the-scenes look at what it really takes to succeed at online auctions. Through it all, Lynn's fresh and enthusiastic voice keeps the tone upbeat. This book will appeal to readers who enjoy stories about family as well as those who just like to read about auction successes.« less
This is a pretty good book. It kind of inspires me to write a book on MY 100 best things that I sold on Ebay. The stories were fascinating and from the heart. The author really expresses the love that she felt for her grandmother. Looking forward to reading her second book "Ebay Money Making Madness" with her next 100 best things.
Really great advice for the beginner as well as the intermediate ebayer. She's a good author and really holds your attention to where it's hard to put the book down. Makes you feel as though she's talking to you and not down to you.
