My cousin started a daily business podcast he had some very good suggestions. As a result I took a good long look at my website and realized it was in serious need of a face lift. Spent about a week redoing it, now it has a lighter, fresher look to it. Not so busy and very easy to navigate. https://www.gretascollectibles.com Also from Michael's suggestions I started a…See More

"Pretty much, if the funds went into my bank account without me having to transfer them I'd probably use it more often. Takes about 3 business days. It's more reliable then the square bt reader and I like that the one reader does all 3…"

This is an ACE show set up p was early Sat morning. We set up in the pouring rain. Everything was wet, boxes, display, tent, curtains, shoes, everything. Rained long enough to soak everything then stayed pretty much dry for the rest of the day, overcast but dry. Sales on Sat were dismal for me but picked on Sunday. So made a profit, not a big one but enough, so I was pleased with the show. Here's the thing that impressed me the most. Even though there was no breakdown rules given out or anyone… Continue

Of course when we got back to the show booths were going up early and a huge trailer was in the middle of my booth space so we had to wait till they were unloaded. My spot… Continue
