is me - Sally Milo, with a bit of assistance from my partner,
Kyle Bennett and a couple of my eBay pals.
have been Milo Design - a graphic designer - since the days
when "cut & paste" meant using an Exacto knife
& rubber cement or melted wax. In 1990, I met my first Macintosh
& learned how to cut & paste electronically & draw
with a mouse. I've been an illustrator since I held my first
in 1999, my friend Wayne (AzBCC) asked me to set up & manage
his eBay auctions as I was the only web-savvy person he knew.
All I knew of eBay at that time was that my youngest sister
had sold some of her daughter's baby clothes on the site. Wayne
agreed to pay for my first eBay purchase (a $15 CocaCola can
bank) so I could learn a bit about how eBay works. I was soon
using his fancy Sony Mavica camera (the floppy disk one - which
I inherited & used until mid-2010!) to photograph coins
from his retail coin shop. He provided the descriptions, I did
the template design & layout & started listing thru
eBay's SYI form.
graduated to MisterLister to enable me to bulk list auctions
and eventually discovered Sellers Assistant Pro, which saved
me many hours in listing & tracking sales. When Blackthorne
was released, I found that even better for managing my eBay
listings! I've since switched to SixBit - a program I highly
recommend to my fellow sellers!
the spring of '03, I started selling items for local individuals
& businesses as an eBay Trading Assistant. I became a PowerSeller
on my own in my first 3 months and was recognized on eBay in
September, 2003, as PowerSeller of the Month.
about a year and a half, I taught eBay classes at Tucson's Pima
Community College and eventually decided teaching classes there
was not my calling.
I've created eBay listing templates for myself & other sellers
since I began selling on eBay, it's only been since the beginning
of 2007 that I've made eBay design a greater focus. I'm back
to my design roots & I'm loving that!
other eBay passions are posting on the Community discussion
boards & helping others to use SixBit. I was a member of
of the Community for nearly 3 years. I'm also and Certified
eBay Stores Designer and was an eBay Education Specialist for
a couple years. Once or twice a year I attend a special eBay
event such as eBay on Location or the eBay Radio Party - events
I recommend going to!
