A hard to find piece of boys clothing this summer is Skylanders pajamas. However, I was lucky enough to get some in stock in boys size 6, 8, 10, and 12. The pajama set includes a short sleeve shirt and shorts with elastic waistband and it is 100% polyester. Hurry and get them before they sell out! We are hoping to get more Skylanders kids clothing in the future.
Humvee sunglasses are a hot selling item as we approach the summer months. I just got a few in stock and listed so please check them out and give me your feedback on them.

The sunglasses have ultraviolet polarized lens and all include a black leatherette carrying case with hardshell liner. The Humvee brand of sunglasses are made in China.
Angry Birds merchandise is popping up everywhere including my eBay store. I now have in stock Angry Birds swim trunks for boys. They range in size from small (6/7), medium (8), large (10/12), and XL (14/16). Currently there are three different designs listed but one more will be added soon. They vary in color from green to blue to black. They are made of polyester and have a drawstring elastic waistband and mesh liner. If your boy loves Angry birds he will love wearing these to the pool this summer!

Also each sandal has a PU nubuck strap with soft touch lining and EVH logo, durable rubber non-marking outsoles with EVH logos, and are water friendly and floatable.

A very popular Browning knife set is the southern collection which was a recent addition to my eBay store.

May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. There are several listings on eBay currently where a portion of the proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Let’s get to a few facts about CF. There are 30,000 children and adults in the United States that have CF. There are more than 10 million symptomless American carriers of the defective CF gene. There are about 1000 new people diagnosed a year and it occurs in one of every 35000 live births.
What can you do to help during the month of May? You can walk in Great Strides, be an advocate for people with Cystic Fibrosis, and download the “Cure CF” iphone app. Also you can use social media to get the word out as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has various social media outlets such as facebook, twitter, google +, and youtube. Also if you have a story to tell about yourself or someone you know who has cystic fibrosis that has battled the disease but led a strong meaningful life please contact me and I will be glad to post about it.
Recently listed in my eBay store are a couple of different styles of Ben 10 shirts. They include a dark blue and gray design. The Ben 10 shirt comes in boys sizes small (4), medium (5/6), or large (7). The front of the shirts feature such characters as Ben Tennyson and more. If your boy still loves Ben 10 on the Cartoon Network this is a great chance to get some shirts for a low cost. What other character shirts would you like to see in my store?
Maintaining your focus while running an eBay business can be a very challenging goal. Whether you have health challenges or not sometimes it is easy to lose your energy and focus on the daily tasks. It is important to remember that health is your number one priority. Sometimes when you get very busy with your eBay tasks it is easy to put your health on the backburner but you simply cannot let this happen. If you are one that exercises daily make sure and not skip these sessions. Always make time for exercise. If you have had health issues in the past this is critically important. Also make sure not to skip meals or snacks so that your energy does not get drained later. Another important factor in maintaining your focus is to surround yourself with people, whether in person or online, that give you energy and do not drain your energy. Jen Groover gives a great video on some of these tips.
