I did this about 10 years ago. At that too much was going on in life and sales was not good enough to mitivate me to put any time in it. I lasted about one year. Mostly just paid the rent and the cost of merchandise.
Now I want to try it again. I just secured a booth of size 12x15 feet. The rent is $1 per square foot. I also bought a few bookcases from a dealer in the mall.
The idea is of couse to sell books that are otherwise not sellable online. I know that it involves a lot of time to do this.
Pros? Cons? Experience?
two books to Mongolia! They are being shipped to a cargo office in the US that specializes in shipping to Mongolia. DH said he didn't realize that so much stuff was shipped to Mongolia there would be a company that specialized in it. haha! They most likely ship to other countries and the address given just includes the Mongolia so they know which 'division' it goes to.
I have sold to every continent (Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America) except Antarctica. Countries have included England, Ireland, Wales, Beligium, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Latvia, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Greece, Israel, Egypt, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, China, Japan, Indonesia, Australia (country/continent), Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, and a few more that I am sure I have forgotten. Wish I would have kept track from the time when I first began selling. I've noticed on some sellers pages they will have a map of the world and then "pins" in the countries where customers were located.
Did think there would be a country left to surprise me, but Mongolia did! The wonders of the internet and ebay.
I was on Fast food catagory and my virus detected a virus can this be ?

P.D. James, the British author whose cerebral murder mysteries brought a new level of sophistication to the genre and who created such enduring characters as the erudite but melancholy Scotland Yard sleuth Adam Dalgliesh and the resourceful private investigator Cordelia Gray, died Nov. 27 at her home in Oxford, England. She was 94.
Her publisher, Faber and Faber, announced her death. The cause was not disclosed.
Ms. James was 42 when she launched a literary career that would bring her critical acclaim, a life peerage and millions of fans worldwide.
