Dead Stock Obsessive Behaviour And Me

…for what seems like an age I’ve resisted selling stock on line…

…many debates have ensued in store (hi Ian!) about the validity of internet presence for the small record shop who would rather talk than type and would rather treat the vinyl that is offered to him as a local resource , instead of strip mining it and selling it to the wealthiest collector….

….use the door provided….IMG_1622

…if only somebody had explained the organisational intricacies of online auctioneering….

…the photography…

…the creative writing…

….the winnowing of sold from unsold…

…the re-listing …

…the ergonomics of it all….

…the foraging for suitable cardboard boxes…

…the production of mailers from said boxes…

…with a box cutter…

….box cutter

…the fact that the one guy who haunted the cheapie-bins now works night shift and doesn’t clean up the not-so-desirable-at-never-to-be -repeated-prices stock that is now the basis for my online sales (hi Tim!)…

….the sudden realisation that selling stuff on Trade-me (sorry guys, no plans to go “E-bay” just yet) is tantamount to getting folk to pay me to promote my biz to them….

…stamping  the Too Tone  bag-stamp on a 12 x 12 piece of cardboard to use as padding in the package  instead of adding a biz-card that is just as likely to get lost when the package is opened….

…i could go on but won’t ….

…still not doing requests or phone orders, but am spreading my web of evil….

…boo ha ha ha.
