Here's the scenerio. You can get an endless supply of antiques and vintage items for very cheap. It's your first love and passion and you want to make it prosper into a steady income. You put together your website store and price the items at what they're worth. But you have to wait for the collectors to come and find you, which is slow, as anyone knows who has a website store in a competitive niche. Or... You put everything on ebay and get about a third of what they're worth. It's not slow, and you get the steady income, but you don't get what they're worth. Ebay is not what it was in the late 90's, early 2000's. Back then you could get what an antique was worth. Or... You put it on etsy which is flooded, but you get about half of what it's worth. You wait a little for the money to come in, but not as long as you would if you had your own store. Or... You only put a few things on either ebay or etsy and direct the people to your website store. They may not come, however, because they are not the collectors who will pay full price. Or... None of the above. You have a better idea.
