    Exactly! I doubt anyone on this list makes a living by selling on
E-bay. I do it to find homes for some of the more interesting stuff that I
find but can't keep and to help pay the expenses of looking for the
stuff. Even then I doubt that what I make from E-bay justifies the time
and effort of listing, packing and shipping the stuff.
