I work for a non-profit charitable organization that receives household goods from donations. We have several small electronic items, film cameras, small useable kitchen items, flatware, cutlery, linens (ALL PROPERLY DISINFECTED BY STATE OF OHIO REGULATIONS), other household necessities, artwork, and other "nick-knacks."
We have two (2) "Brick & Mortar" stores in Cleveland, Ohio and have been in business over 25 years. We work with several other charitable organizations in the area to help families, and individuals in need of household items;existing and returning Veterans, displaced persons and other indigents. Most of our staff are volunteers from all walks of life but we do have some employees, such as myself, that are paid a small salary without any benefits.
All items are inspected and determined if safe and useable prior to presentation for sale. We also carry furniture, NTSC, Cable Ready CTR TV's that need converter boxes, Washers and Dryers , but those items would only be available as "Local Pick-Up Only." We are located in Cleveland, Ohio.
All items would be small enough to ship via all shipping services available,(USPS, UPS, and FedEx.) The cost of the items to be auctioned will include the shipping cost.
Can we start an eBay store?
Would eBay possibly help with costs associated to funding the eBay store?
