With most of the growth occurring during the last 2 years. We’re approaching 40,000 Ebay feedbacks, 99.9% positive, as at today. We sell on Etsy, OnBuy, Amazon, our own website and in our shop, plus we fulfil to Amazon. Yet there are just the 2 of us. We employ no staff. We have no storage, other than our loft. And our running costs are minimal.
