Some good tips, I would have liked pictures to break up the text, but I appreciate the author putting a lot of information inside this e-book. Definitely geared for the beginner, but seems like it may be a bit dated (for example I don't know how well boutique clothing does on ebay any longer)
I found this to be a very informative and helpful. Thank you!
