Santa Shops on eBay is yet another great eBay book by Marsha! It starts out with straightforward, sound advice about how to shop on eBay, and how to shop with confidence to score those unique gifts at the best prices from the best merchants. Marsha's conversational style is very readable, presenting her obvious expertise with a common-sense approach.

I recommend this book.

Marsha Collier is a recognized authority on eBay business, putting her daughter through college on profits form her ebay business and giving seminars on the topic, and her SANTA SHOPS ON EBAY: HOW TO FIND DEALS, GET ORGANIZED, AND GIVE YOURSELF THE GIFT OF TIME is a timely 'must' for any who would shop safely, target searches, and uncover the best shopping sites. Chapters cover everything from understanding values and making wise decisions on spending to checking current prices. Sidebars of special tips supplement item-specific chapters on electronics, food, and more.

Marsha Collier is a trusted author and eBay expert who has written a great book about buying for the holidays. The bonuses in the book are numerous--if you're a buyer or seller on eBay you will find tips and stores to visit and ways to streamline your daily activities. She is smart and has written a book that is very helpful for navigating eBay, especially for Christmas shopping. This book is from 2006 but is still not totally outdated as many books about eBay and the internet are after this amount of time. Great read, and obviously the price is right too. Highly recommended book and author!

This book really simplifies the online shopping process. So many people are hesitant to shop online when it's SO much easier than dealing with the holiday crowds. Santa Shops on eBay gives you a roadmap with all the necessary steps for safe shopping, a timeline so your gifts will arrive in time, and best of all - an appendix with detailed information on e-retailers that the author has experience with and TRUSTS.

All of my friends are interested in this book - I'm afraid if I lend it out, it won't come back!!

This is a great book if you want to find ebay stores in a hurry! However I did find that some of these stores no longer exist. It will give the novice ebay shopper great insight on how to shop and buy.

I picked up this book and it was all over ~ the rest of my day was spent reading, chuckling and visiting ebay stores that I never would have found without this book. Can't wait to get my Christmas shopping started!

I have read numerous books written by Marsha and have always enjoyed ~ and learned ~ from them. Her books are always conversational and humorous ~ and always give guidance to make tasks that seem insurmountable into manageable bits & pieces.

This book takes the vast universe of ebay stores ~ a form of ebay shopping often overlooked by buyers ~ and shows how to find what you are looking for without stepping out of the house!!

Marsha also features 100 of her favorite stores in all categories, not only telling the reader what the stores sell, but a little bit about the people behind the stores. I had SOOOOOO much fun checking them out and finding stores that I never would have found otherwise! I am a proud eBay seller who is honored to be featured in this book. The plethora of information included will help anyone ~ whether you have ever used ebay or not ~ with simplifying Christmas shopping and learning new things about ebay!
