Whenever I start to dig through all of the supplies over at Bramble Berry for soapmaking – looking for goodies for Sudsalicious (ugh, pop-ups! I must get that site out of the claws of Network Solutions so I can move it!) – I start considering eBay auctions. There are seasonal soap items, or things I would only make once, that I don’t want to add to the Sudsalicious site. I want to just auction them off – but when I look at the auctions out there already they aren’t doing well.
On the other hand, when it comes to candles – I know that Liz must be doing well with her Bay Candles on eBay – I have a ton of them! And she runs things a lot like I want to – I make them when I can, and when I want to. With a full time job I simply can’t meet the demands of having a ton of orders waiting for me sometimes.
So this is today’s consumer survey: if you were buying handmade soaps would you be more likely to buy them from a site or from eBay? Would you consider buying them off of eBay? What would influence your decision?
