Well I thought I’d give Wix a go. I really like how easy it is to build a website as I have done it the old fashioned way and the “Wix way”.
So started my site and might go ahead and try to open my own store.
But for now I’m still just using eBay:
Honorable mentions on recent finds is:

Thirty seven years ago today Mount Saint Helens erupted in western Washington state. Two days later some people in Idaho collected ash. I have some of that ash available to you too purchase on my eBay store.
If you go to our store page and search for ash and you will see what I have made available for you concerning Mt St Helens catastrophe.
As we come to the end of this age I am amazed how strange the world is. I’ve been watching the original Twilight Zone. It’s the only version I like. I can’t believe how imaginative previous generations were compared to the junk that’s on TV and movies today. Today most shows are action packed trying to brainwash the masses with some stupid political position, reusing the same plots over and over.
But it is amazing how these last days are so strange. I feel like we live in an episode of the Twilight Zone. When I was a kid the hippies I was raised by were interested in hunting and fishing and agriculture. Today the even the outdoorsy types treat nature like it’s some sort of field trip away from the city or subdivision while they eat tofu, leaves and twigs.
Survival and mountain man thinking is practically ridiculed by such a generation. But I’ve really enjoyed finding all these old survival type books and listed them on Ebay.
I know they probably won’t sell in this current age and my asking price is a little high (to cover expenses as a small business owner). But if they don’t sell it’ll give me some reading material. A lot of them look pretty interesting.
I’ve been thinking about giving a free useful gift with the next ninety something orders. To clear out some electronic stock that isn’t selling.
Well anyway I better get back to my corner of the Twilight Zone.
Since I was a teenager I had an interest in survival activities as my buddy’s dad was a mountain man (a bit of a glamour mountain man but a mountain man none-the-less). Anyway we were very much into primitive survival. As we played around with it we started considering the primitive ways in a modern apocaliss. This was about fifteen years before it became popular with video games like Fallout, and tv shows like The Walking Dead.
Now you’re probably wondering why I am saying apocaliss instead of apocalypse. Well I believe the Revelation (unveiling/apocalypsis) of Jesus Christ started with the Churches as the book (of Revelation) says. So how does one see Jesus today? Through His people. How will the world lovers see Jesus very soon? Kind of like Fallout, etc.
Apocaliss comes from Si Robertson when talking about a Zombie Apocaliss. I think the term is more fitting than the terrible abuse of The Unveiling (apocalypse).
Well I’ve been picking up a lot of survival books I think I’m going to start marketing them as survival and prepper. I might even throw in apocalypse although I hate to but most of my customers wouldn’t get my apocaliss term and wouldn’t be searching for it.
I have some brothers and sisters who are delighted to go into the “zombie apocaliss” but I don’t share their enthusiasm or their doctrines. But hey, if they want a survival book (or even supplies) to ease their thoughts maybe they will buy it from me first.
I thought I would step out of my comfort zone a bit and upload a video of a vintage toy I’m going to list on eBay soon.
I did one about five years ago of an old computer I found. I’ve never gotten into making youtube videos but thought it would be a good idea to do more videos to get interest in some of our less known product finds.
The video is of an Asian produced 1985(?) 1986(?) mechanical roller skating teddy bear with a cowboy hat on. It’s only 32 seconds but hey it’s a start. Hopefully I’ll be able to include the link to the video in the eBay listing.
For now we just have a few mechanical hawaiian hula dancers available but the skating teddy should be available tomorrow.
