John Schaub, owner of Interchange at Vermont in Sunderland, will explain the process of selling online using eBay as a primary example. The program will cover how to decide the appropriate market for a person's items, what they're worth; how to promote them through words and photographs and a person can set up an eBay account. There will also be a Question and Answer segment to respond to individual questions.
Schaub has been an entrepreneur since he was 17 years old, buying and selling vintage cars, trucks, toy trains and selling them in the local "buy and sell" newspaper. He also worked full-time as a professional photographer. When the internet and the personal computer evolved, Schaub decided that the virtual marketplace was his next adventure in life and business. By the mid-1990s, eBay was starting to be a household word. Schaub immediately signed up. Today, he is an eBay PowerSeller with an on-line store. He specializes in model railroad items, vintage cameras, historical ephemera and collectibles. He established his business in Vermont in 2012 and registered the company name as Interchange at Vermont. His company also provides consignment services for clients in the local area and regionally as well.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 802-375-6153.
