This is where it all started….. The Hillbilly Crapper, the $.99 eBay auction that eventually sold for $40.00 +…. Ya no shit, without a word of lie. We was onto something here without a doubt. With a friends (Corey’s) help we went on a building frenzy. With no building knowledge or tools we made do with a hacksaw, a knife, some Elmer’s glue, masking tape & not much more. Turning out anything and everything Hillbilly we could imagine…. And it all sold. Hillbilly was just our way of saying we had our own unique building style; truth was we couldn't build a straight wall if our life depended on it. Eventually things became more professional, and we started getting top dollar for our creations, in fact some INSANE amounts of money for some of our builds…. Looking back now and thinking who in their Wright mind would buy that? But we put out some pretty cool items. Things progressed and tools were bought, building skills improved to the point we had a regular customer base every time an item would be listed, we knew if it would sell and chances are who would bid on it.
Things were great until EVIL-BAY started changing; they started getting more and greedier as most of you know.
The competition (“SCARRY G SCALE”) kept coming up with BS ways of getting all of my listings pulled. Perhaps I (we) put a small dent in his bizness… who knows? It was hard to fight the POWER SELLER CRAP so I did what I do best and told eBay to SHOVE IT UP THEIR ARSE…. Well they didn't like that… ya go figure huh. No explanation, no warning, and no nothing except an email later saying " You no longer meet the selling requirements of an upstanding eBay member…. Oh I see. Oh Well, Hellocharlee's site was up an running within hours and doing bizness, selling more off this lil free-bee site than I ever did before.
So this is where I am now. Still building…, mainly small custom items that are small and inexpensive to ship into the US or Canada, Having this website is a great motivator as I’m determined to get more and more items on daily, improve the graphics, try and keep the miniatures at a reasonable selling price as I no longer get robbed by the evil-bay Mafia. I’m always looking for something that’s not being sold that I can make within a day or two and get it up for you (Email me your idea’s) If I can make it and use your idea(s) I will make you one at no charge.
There’s so much more to tell but…. That’s fer another day.
Thanx for dropping in and Happy Hobby “N”
