For 12 years I was a mother of four and at home most of the time. We moved a lot, so I couldn’t go back to my old job. eBay gave me the opportunity to be more independent from an employer. In the meantime, eBay became my fifth child. I started super small with just few items. At that time I invested 1,000€ into that project. I just wanted to try it out and put the items online. I was very surprised how much customers liked it. I started in our basement in my spare time. After a while, I had to stack the boxes in our corridor. Then we started to clear out and rebuild our basement. At one point, I had so much inventory that I had to move out. I am more than happy that I am not doing it at home anymore. It became a real job, an evolved work. I love colour and the colourful life. I realized very quickly that my target customers love colour as well. That means they like to be colourful on their bikes so I adjusted my inventory to that. It became colourful, because bikers and racing cyclists love it. Of course, when I order something I do not want to get disappointed. I want to unpack it and be super happy that this is exactly what I ordered online. When you do a good job on that as a seller, I think you won.
