I am a huge fan of Gary Vee. Long story short, every fan knows and hears about eBay, so I had done eBay for some time, and I was curious to find a marketplace and product that I could sell, that did not involve shipping cost.
I am pretty crafty and I teach on the side, so I had a vague idea of what I was looking to do next. I looked at etsy initially, but they charge a listing fee (boo), so that was a no-go. Then I researched some more and found the TPT platform. It was perfect for what I was looking for!
