Welcome to March everybody! The sun is shining at Terapeak headquarters in beautiful Victoria, BC. I hope spring has arrived or is well on its way for all of our wonderful readers.
Terapeaker Gail G. emailed in with a score she would have missed if Terapeak hadn’t swooped in to save the day. When thrift shopping with her husband she saw a plush cat toy named Carmichael. Further investigation of the packaging revealed it was an Avon collectible from 1984 and it included the original box and a new unopened calendar for 1985. She hesitated to purchase it but got her husband to research the item on Terapeak.
“While thrift store shopping I almost walked out the store when I saw a plush cat named Carmichael in a box. Further investigation revealed it was an Avon collectible from 1984, complete with rolled up new 1985 calendar. I went out to the car and asked my husband if I should buy it. He looked it up on his phone and said, "Buy it!" We saw the last Carmichael had gone for 70 dollars, minus the box and calendar. I made my purchase for 2 dollars, listed him for 100 dollars starting bid and 150 dollars buy it now, and was thrilled when it sold for 150 dollars! I plan to open my ebay store soon and Terapeak will continue to help my business grow.”
Buying something for $2 and selling it on eBay for $150 was a dream come true for Gail. Terapeak helped make this dream come true by empowering Gail with the information she needed to make informed buying decisions and ultimately make more money!
