We closed our eBay Shop

Oh my god, I almost forgot to announce that we closed down our eBay shop this month! I am so glad about that for various reasons: First, the eBay’s fees were just too high, second, since they changed the sorting algorithm we didn’t sell that much anymore because no one could find us. Our online shop customers are also soooo much more relaxed and easy than the usual eBay customers. We save a lot of eBay fees that we can use for other promotions now like for example Google Adwords. I am so excited and looking forward to an ‘eBay hassle free” future of my online shop. YAY!!! It’s every online shop owner’s dream to be independent and not have to rely on eBay. We finally did it!

300th order

WOW, we received the 300th order earlier than expected. I expected to get to the 300th order around 30 days after our 250th order was confirmed. So it took only 17 days! YAY The 300th order is from an old customer of us from Bad Saulgau, Germany. Thank you so much!

I will write again when we get our 400th order. See ya soon ;-)

More Pics from the new office

Some people asked me to add more pics of the office after our move was finished. So I took some pics today in my office and you can see them below. As you may recognize, there is still some empty space. We plan to buy some more shelves as we are buying more and more products and expand our stock. We will also buy 1-2 tables for my husband to work here and for taking pictures of our products.

Customer from France visiting us

Today a very good customer from France visited us at our new office. They placed a few orders already and wanted to finally meet in person and discuss future collaborations with us. I also showed them some items from our showroom and they took them with them to show to their customers. My customer is a buyer for big companies like Carrefour in France, therefore this business opportunity is really great for us and them as well. I am really looking forward to keep working together with them in the future.

Our new office 2009 !!!

We moved during the weekend to our new office which is just 1 floor below our old one. So it was quite easy and not too much work to carry the things downstairs but still lots of packing involved. And I hate packing! I rather unpack and organize the new office than pack the things in the old office. Therefore my husband did the packing and moving and I did the unpacking. On sunday his family showed up and helped us. That was so nice. They said “We are family, of course we help” in their broken English ;-) I just love them. Below you can see some pic of our new office while it was still empty. I also added a video of the office which also shows the very nice view we have now.
