    The Selling Lounge

    Hi, I'm Debi the proud owner of the Selling Lounge. We are a friendly forum where sellers help sellers to help our/your online E-Commerce Business grow by having a place of resources and support along with help in promoting ourselves and each other.

    I have been selling on line since 2003 in which I started out with eBay where I was doing very well as a Power Seller until all the fee hikes and changes. I then opened up my first Website almost 2 years ago and have been a member of a few very nice informative E-Commerce Forums and have learned so much about this new world of online selling that I wanted to have all my information in one place to help me succeed and by doing that, helping others at the same time.

    I want to welcome each and everyone of you and please make yourself at home in the forum and add your links to the various places we have for you to help get you and your products out there and noticed. We have a Blog which I would love for each of you to take the time and send me your site description with a banner and the url to your site so that I can post it on The Selling Lounge Blog.

    I would also love to Thank our Forum Moderators for all their time and help as well! We have EagleScoutMom2 and out-of-the-attic-2u as our site wide Moderators and vinewood is our Moderator for our Introduction Corner and our Chat Central.

    If you should happen to have a question or problem please feel free to contact me any time at

    Thank You so much for being a part of The Selling Lounge,

    Giving Thanks

    ThanksGiving is just around the corner, and think of all the soldiers that will not be home for another holiday. So many of them would be happy to hear from you over. And the holiday season is the worst time for them, being away from their family and friends. You can find a soldier that would like to have correspondence with someone from the United States at Just a freindly letter, or card would be great to send them, show them you appreciate the sacrifies they make for your freedom.

    Stop in the forum and post.

    A little bit about myself My name is Teresa , Keleka is my Hawaiian name although I am not Hawaiian I love Hawaii and I like the name. I am a Office Manager for my now husband who is a OB/GYN . I am around female patients, nurses all day long. As time went by and getting to know the patients I realized one thing they love Jewelry. They would come in with beautiful rings, necklaces, bracelets etc. So I decided to open my own Jewelry Business and I name it Keleka's Kollections, I started with just Sterling Silver being that Silver and White Gold were in style. It was great between friends , family , patients I now had a captive audience. As I would go to the distributors my eyes started wandering over to the Costume Jewelry so I decided to bring some pieces in and they actually did well but one day I saw a unusual bracelet truthfully not one of my most beautiful pieces but yet there was something about it so I purchased a few dozen. Within a week I was sold out and getting calls regarding this bracelet , the bracelet is the Evil Eye Bracelet. So naturally I did a lot of reading about the Evil Eye and I started marketing this product and priced it right. The People in the Middle East, Turkey truly believe that the Evil Eye Wards Off Evil Spirits and In Return Brings Good Luck to YOU!!
    I put a message with Each Bracelet in a Velvet or Organza Pouch I sell and my Customers love it. Hearing all the wonderful Stories that everyone has after purchasing and wearing this bracelet had made me realize how this Jewelry Business had become so rewarding. I feel so good when someone buys something from me and it brings happiness to them. This of course is not the only bracelet that has a meaning however it is the bracelet that gave me more passion regarding the business. I myself have many stories to tell regarding the Evil Eye,and now it became personal to me. I also know that you must have no negative energy when wearing this bracelet or it will not have the same effect. , So naturally before long Customers/Clients were asking about a website. So without further ado here is Keleka's Kollection Jewery & Gifts.....

    At Bonanzle, we think that online shopping is stuck where online search was 10 years ago, in the age before Google. Many users today think that eBay and Craigslist are "good enough," and the "rules" for online shopping are set: items get posted through a series of selling pages, buyers browse static listings, buyers buy items and hope that sellers are trustable.

    We think there's still a lot of room for improvement over the precedent that eBay and Craigslist set 10 years ago (and that the eBay/Craigslist lookalikes have copied ever since).

    Relentlessly simple. Remember five years ago when it was easy to post and browse items on eBay? We have spent more than a year designing the easiest selling process, and re-invented the concept of a "store" to revive that refreshing feeling of ease eBay once gave you.

      Engaging. On Bonanzle, the journey to buy or sell your items is part of the destination. With built in user-to-user messaging and pervasive chat, you'll find that shopping isn't nearly as lonesome as you remember it being on Craigslist.
      Safe. It sucks to have no idea who you're dealing with. At Bonanzle, we're committed to building a community of friendly, everyday people. Bonanzle is not (and will never be) a place for adult content or unseemly message forums.

    Free and Almost Free. There is no reason that you should have to pay a percentage of your item sales to The Man. At Bonanzle, listing is free and fees are dirt simple. They're also guaranteed not to raise an iota through 2010.

    Are you looking for something?

    The buyer looking for an item can have one thread to add their wanted items in, however when you have a new item that they are looking for you can add that to a new thread.
