Classic_Chloe May Seller Of The Month
Fenton Rose Bowl ~ Lily of the Valley Pattern Circa 1979

– How long have you been selling online?
I started selling online in 1998, when I first found eBay. I loved the concept–on line–internet auction sales–from the start. In my opinion, no site offers as many positive experiences for sellers as OLA.
– How and or why did you start selling online?
My parents were antique dealers, so I grew up surrounded by antiques. I have been selling many of my personal collections in the past few years.
– What is the most interesting thing you’ve bought or sold online?
Schwinn Varsity Bicycle circa 1970. 10 speed.
Not the most costly; that would be a Daum Nancy lamp that I sold on eBay for over $6,000 a few years back. The key word here is interesting.
I sold a pair of old glass door knobs to someone in Japan once, a piece of Gouda pottery to the Gouda Museum in Holland, and once I donated an item to the Beverly Hills Film Museum because the curator saw it and asked for it.
Someone just bid on a book of 20 Walking Liberty Half Dollars. That’s Sweet.
– What hobbies do you have besides selling online?
I am an avid reader. I love to read non-fiction, biographies, and memoirs. I have an African Grey Parrot, Maxwell, who is 20 years old, and three Jack Russell terriers.
– Please share a tip on creating your OLA store? Or using OLA in general.
Take it one step at a time, enjoy listing your items, and be fair. I aim to please, and follow the Golden Rule: I offer interesting merchandise at fair prices.
