Photo-Frenzy Focus.

This week, I received 500 free listings from Thursday to Sunday. As many of you know, I don’t do eBay work on Sunday, so I was on a full hustle for the last 36 hours. Needless to say, I listed a fair amount—not everything in my inventory but a very fair amount of it.

Discovering toys buried in the closet, box by box.
