Fun facts about Playboy

We always have a large number of Playboy products for sale, see HERE, because they’re really good sellers as you would expect from an instantly recognizable global brand. They do well on eBay, in shops and on markets stalls alike, so you can’t go wrong. Have you ever wondered about the stratospheric branding success of […]

Weird, wonderful and crazy business ideas

I have been reading the furore surrounding the American Julien Blanc with interest. Julien Blanc is possibly the world’s saddest man. He’s a self-styled ‘pick-up artist’ (a PUA) who preaches some fairly aggressive and obnoxious tactics to ‘help’ men get women into bed through manipulation and coercion. You wouldn’t think this was the twenty-first century […]

An A-Z of shoe styles

A few weeks ago in this blog I was talking about the closure of several shoe chains and pointing out that if you are thinking of starting a business, whether it’s online, a market stall or in actual premises, a shoe shop might be a great business to get off the ground. Everyone needs shoes […]

Build a bonfire, build a bonfire: discounting items for sale on eBay, the how, when and why.

So that might be the longest title I have ever used in this blog but I wanted somehow to get a link in to bonfire night given that it’s November the 5th, however tenuous it might be. But in my mind the link is that instead of burning unwanted stock – let’s sell it for […]

It’s Wimbledon! Let’s make a racquet for Andy Murray

I’m very excited because Wimbledon 2013 starts today and for two weeks it will be a complete tennis fest. I’m a big fan and I’ve always loved Mr Dour Scot himself, Andy Murray. He’s 27 now and I find myself wondering how much longer he’ll continue. I hope it’s a while because there doesn’t seem […]

Diversifying your stock offer

In these difficult economic times, running a small business can be extremely hard work. In spite of news items suggesting that online retail sales have rocketed (Retail Gazette for example, reports that ‘online retail sales rose 16 per cent year-on-year last month (March 2013), driven by clothing sales despite the freezing weather’) you may be […]

Sixth scents: sourcing the right bargain fragrances

Aromatherapy is a twentieth century word for an ancient practice. Humans have utilised essential oils for medicinal practice for over 6000 years. The scent of essential oil and incense has been proven time and time again to enhance your psychological and physical wellbeing and so while such fragrances have at times dipped in and out […]
