It came very quickly. I am very pleased.
How it all began
Winter Park Collectibles originally started back in the mid 1980's when I worked the Flea Market circuit. I would scour the auctions, yard sales, estate sales, and anywhere else I thought I could pick up quality used items at a good price. I worked full time during the day at a "regular" job, went to auctions at night, and worked the Flea Market on the weekends. I eventually expanded from a single booth to quite a large area with multiple glass showcases and display cases.
In the mid 90's quality used merchandise started getting a little harder to buy. Locally, more and more people were showing up at the auctions and more and more where asking premium prices for their items in yard sales. It was getting almost impossible to bring quality items to my customers at affordable prices. So I eventually transitioned to more of an online presence. I opened an eBay account and started my own website. I started buying and selling new and used items on eBay in 1995 and moved away from the Flea Market business. Due to declining sales and the decrease in the amount of time I could devote to the business, I moved more towards part time selling. I continued to sell online off and on until 2000.
Sometime around 2000 I decided to devote more time to my online sales business and focus on sites such as eBay, Amazon and later Yardsellr. Yardsellr, for those that remember it, had a unique business strategy. And although I did extremely well, I knew their business strategy was destined to fail. While focusing primarily on Yardsellr, I opened a shop on Etsy in September of 2011 as an additional sales venue. Yardsellr would eventually close it's doors in 2013 and I moved my primary focus towards Etsy.
The transition to Etsy was a good move for us, my girlfriend and I enjoy selling and interacting on Etsy very much. Customer satisfaction is extremely important to us and Etsy allows us to provide more of a personal touch which helps us reach that Customer satisfaction goal. We also enjoy searching the lands for hard to find bargains to bring to our customers. We still have a presence on eBay, Amazon and other venues which allow us to sell non-vintage items. Etsy, however, is our best and most enjoyable selling venue.
My girlfriend and I still work full-time "regular" jobs. We hope that when that retirement day comes we can transition full time into our online business!
