the trials and tribulations of trying to sell Yureshan Cooper's business cards on the internet

hi there

my dear colleague, indeed if i may be so bold and presumptious friend, Yureshan at verk recently handed to me a number of identical items. these items, or if you will the one item of which i now have several of, takes the form of his shiny new business card type thing.

i understand an awful lot of what you are reading here is encapsulated in the title of this post, but do bear with me, ladies and gentlemen.

in regards of this incident, three things come to mind. one, the cards are indeed shiny and would seem to serve their purpose. two, i have absolutely no idea what to do with them. the third links quite nicely to that last point, for it dawned upon me that i have not yet at any point in my life tried to sell an item (or items) on the interweb net.

these three things, then, appear to be in a very real sense a good case for consolidation. with the assistance, if not influence, of Yureshan, the dice are rolling and the ball is heading towards the hole. a limited number of my stash of these cards, people, are being made available for sale to the general public.

the path to selling them has not been easy. i am presently in the middle of doing all sorts of authentication and verification things in order to be allowed to list these or anything else that takes my fancy for sale. this is all fair enough, really - it gives exceptional protection to both buyers and sellers. i do not really expect any of them to sell, to be frank, but that protection just in case will be quite useful. Yureshan is very optimistic in regards of this venture, believing a fee of around US$100 is a likely result.

i have, at the least, got as far as a "provisional" listing for this most class business card. you cannot actually see it anywhere on the internet as such as of yet, but for an idea of what it will look like, here's a screen shot for your pleasure.

Yureshan has mentioned something in passing along the lines of all fund raised from this venture being presented to charity. i have no problem with that at all.

if in bizarre, unexpected circumstances any of them sell (i think i indicated that i would be prepared to let 3 (three) of them go), i shall provide you with a full update here. i would not, however, suggest that you frequently seek out such updates.

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
