Challenges

I wanted to list the last of my kitchen items for this week today, and, as I sat at my computer and turned to review which items were left I saw this. (above).  Selling on-line has it's challenges.  You have to constantly add new items, you must be extremely accurate in your descriptions, your photos must be top-notch and the perils of mis-communication or postal mid-deliveries are always looming.  Nothing quite adds to the challenge, however, as having "cat helpers."

I do most of my listing in the evening, especially in the cooler months when "evening" starts so early.  To accomplish this, I have all my photos already taken and often already edited, my notes all ready to work from, and, the items laid out beside me.  When I list jewelry, I like to have it right there so that I can inspect it as I list.  Unfortunately, when you have a kitty being especially needy, she also wants to be RIGHT THERE.  This can pose a challenge to getting things done!   (Note to buyers: please accept my advance apologies for any cat-hair in purchased items and/or packing materials.  I really do clean everything and try my best to keep it neat as it heads out the door!)

My calico does not have a lock on monopolizing real estate at the computer.  Often, even being able to use the keyboard at my leisure is a challenge!

And if you open a shipment from Carmen and Ginger, and, a ginger cat pops out, well, I'll probably - no wait - I will definitely send you the money via Paypal to send the little bugger back to me.  Unless of course you really need a "helper" of your own.

  1. What is it with cats and sitting on the linens?!? You'd think we used catnip fabric softener. And if I got that ginger guy in the mail by accident, I TOTALLY would not tell you. He's adorable.

  4. Sure Salvage Chick, you say that now, but, after 24 hours you'd be offering to drive him back home to Rhode Island! (that's Muzzi)
