Meet Your Moderator Les Beyer

About Les:
In his own words "Born in Elizabeth, NJ. Grew up in Metuchen, NJ.
Became interested in Antiques when I learned that my Great-Great Grandfather was a wooden ship builder on Staten Island, NY and most of his hand tools were still in a chest my grandfather had. In time the tools became mine and I set off on a quest to learn all I could about old tools, and their uses, and find replacements for the tools that were missing from the chest. I was about 14 years old when the tools came into my possession and I've been around Antiques (both buying & selling) ever since.
I now reside in Eastern Pennsylvania with my wife, 2 cats, and more ducks than you can shake a stick at."

OK, Dianne, here goes a link to an archived article in the series Selling On The Net. This series was first published by me in 2001  on About.com and except for many updated technological advances since the basics told here are still valid:

Selling On The Net, Part II

Why did I start with Part II instead of I here?

To get to the basics quickly. If anyone wants to read Part I, click back link at the end of this article.  Part I discusses reasons for wanting to sell on the Net.

The series deals mainly with selling vintage costume jewelry and other small vintage and antique collectibles but the basic tenets apply to all Net selling.

I started selling myself on the Net BEFORE there was a real Web. I.e., I sold on the Usenet groups bulletin boards that preceded the World Wide Web back in 1995. Checks were mailed across the globe and goods shipped when they cleared. It was slow back then but it did work.

Today selling is even more of a breeze than this article series reflects. Websites can today be hand-tinkered in a matter of hours without any previous experience, or may be requested for free from eager web hosts who'll do the website design work just to sign us up.

I sound like an old-timer (that I am) because I had to know both DOS, HTML and VB-Script to hand-tinker my early site pages. It was fun though to learn something new when I had already rounded mid-life.

Hey, guys and dolls: One is NEVER too old to learn something new.  Soon I'll post some great example stories on how people I came across on the Net turned their lives around for the better once they had launched their businesses on the Net.  AGE and DISABILITIES were never in their way.

When I hear excuses why someone thinks doing the Web is too complicated I recite some of these examples; they will humble anyone [What's YOUR excuse, right?].

WHAT is a "repirator"? Inquiring minds like mine need to know :)

To all members of I antique on Line - this is a great place, but what even makes it greater is being able to "see" you --- and by seeing you, this does not mean your actually self but an identity or pseudo image if you will, that could be anything you want to be (within reason). I have many different Avatars - or images - but here I like using a photo of my brick and mortar store. I also like using my puppies - one such photo is of my Yorkie Zoie with her five puppies beneath her, and one pup in particular named Mackie who at the same time I snapped the picture, rolled on his back. This is definitely a Kodak moment. However; you do not have to be camera proficient and can even choose clip art or anything free from the Internet.

We want you to have an enjoyable time here, and to stay a while. which means we would like to "see you" !!!!
