I suppose that running eCommerce Stores isn’t that much different than running physical Decanter Set Venetian Glassbrick and morter stores, except that customers cannot touch what they are buying until they purchase it and get it in their hands.

During the month of July and now August, I’ve been participating in challenges from my Ebay Coach and her friends, offering ways to tweak what we are selling, how we are presenting it, organizing it, and talking about it. It has been tough to keep up with on some days. In fact I didn’t do some of the things due to lack of time. The purpose was to help and not hinder running your business. So when running the business took precedence, I had to put the other aside.

But for the most part the challenges were good. They helped me understand business Bowl Southwesternmanagement better, to discover what it takes to run a successful business, what mindset a person must have to become a business owner that excels, and the type of commitment it takes to own a business and not just have a hobby.

It takes a lot of work, dedication, time, energy, and vision. But when I look at the items that I have discovered to sell, it makes it all worth while to be offering things that I know someone, somewhere, will want to have for their very own. These photos show why I keep going in spite of the hard work involved. I love hearing customers catch their breath in awe of what they’ve decided to have in their home and office, that came from my store shelves. We love helping people make their best memories with us!Tray Oneida Strawberry

Accessories add the final touch to a decor. They come in the form of Rugs, Figurines, Wall Art, Throws, Mirrors, Plants, Vases, Collections, Framed Pictures, Pillows, and much more. Just about anything you enjoy for a home or office can become an accessory.

Look through what you own. Are there any candidates that can become an accessory to accent your decor? Is there anything you intended to throw out, that with a little tweaking would make a fine accessory to your decor? Often times it just takes opening your eyes to what’s around you, and thinking of it differently, to see how it can be utilized in decorating your space.

I’ve seen people enjoy collections of a certain item and display their collections in curio cabinets. My own father had a display of model cars that went to several of us when he passed away. I collected horse figurines as a child and when I found the box of them the other day, I couldn’t believe the detailed list I had written up on the outside of the box with their breeds. Time to dust them off and display them.
