Where in Oregon do you live?

I live in Salem, near to downtown, close enough to walk around the beautiful public grounds that surround the capitol, and on occasion to Napoleons Gelateria, really good if you haven't tried it, Yum! I relocated here from the San Fernando Valley, "For Sure!", yes that is the real valley. I wanting a different place to live, I landed in Salem, Oregon in 2004. It is so... different than the Los Angeles area in so many ways; green and lush, slower and peaceful, Blue skies & water, better strawberries (SoCal strawberries don't even come close) and abundant produce. It really is gorgeous here. Of course the reason for the lush green environment is the rain, and well it can rain, and rain and rain. The secret to surviving the rain is leaving about mid March for a sunnier climate. Salem is home and it felt like that from the beginning. It is a mid-sized city, compared to Los Angeles it is a small town. I like the autonomy is Salem, it is 45 miles from Portland, the mountain and the ocean.

Are you a current eBay seller? What is your eBay ID? How long?

I am a Top-Rated and Power seller, I earn those badges after being in the eBay business for 5 months. I have sold on ebay from many years, but just recently stepped in to at as a full time job. My eBay id is: curiousdiscoveries, I also have the dot com for http://curiousdiscoveries.com. I hope to grow my business inside of the eBay And Etsy platforms, and outside as a stand alone website. I started full time selling at the end October 2011. As a recent BS graduate and Masters of Art in Education student, specialties in Art and business, I looked at the current opportunities of teaching jobs, and decided to make my own way. So maybe like many of you I am still learning... would love to learn together.
