Finely Aged Whine (Seller Stories): That time an eBay buyer definitely scammed me. Maybe?

While I sell a lot of collectibles, there are a few custom items we have made for us in bulk that we sell in our store. One such item are these car stickers which are popular in certain toy fandom circles. We don’t make a lot of money on them (and they actually hurt our DSR score) but I list them because they bring people into the store and encour...

“There is no greater power than that of a laugh and happiness is a force which can save a person from the horrors of the world.”
Hillary DePiano, The Love of Three Oranges: A Play for the Theatre That Takes the Commedia Dell'arte of Carlo Gozzi and Updates It for the New Millennium

“It's like a fairy tale. . . on crack!”
Hillary DePiano, The Love of Three Oranges: A Play for the Theatre That Takes the Commedia Dell'arte of Carlo Gozzi and Updates It for the New Millennium

“MOTHER TIME: Life goes by so very fast, my dears, and taking the time to reflect, even once a year, slows things down. We zoom past so many seconds, minutes, hours, killing them with the frantic way we live that it's important we take at least this one collective sigh and stop, take stock, and acknowledge our place in time before diving back into the melee. Midnight on New Year's Eve is a unique kind of magic where, just for a moment, the past and the future exist at once in the present. Whether we're aware of it or not, as we countdown together to it, we're sharing the burden of our history and committing to the promise of tomorrow.”
Hillary DePiano, New Year's Thieve

Hillary DePiano Maybe. I would like to think that we aren't that backwards a society that people would object to a female president. She definately seems like the best person for the job, I just worry about those backward minded people who still think women shouldn't have had the vote!

Daniel Tell me something, Hillary.

Do you think we are going to have a Hillary for president?
