039: All From Her iPhone – Cindy Sorely

Cindy started selling full time on eBay after deciding that having a three year old help run her brick and mortar specialty Needlework shop was too much. Cindy also runs a large Facebook group for online sellers Cindy's Online Selling Tips (CO$T) and 9 Facebook Buy and Sell Craft groups and sells on eBay, amazon and etsy.
