Lee asked Griff about how he, as a photographer, perceives the optical illusion dress that’s been in the news all week: Is it black and blue or white and gold? Lee suggested that sellers invest in Disney dolls any time a new movie is released. Lee said she plans to attend the Surf’s Up eBay San Diego Sellers Group meetup on Monday to learn about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) from speaker Joel Elad.
Lee read current events from the eBay Radio Seller Events Calendar, located under Seller Resources in the eBay Radio archives.

Griff discussed selling men’s shoes and the best brands to look for.
Frozen is now Disney’s biggest animated box office hit ever. Elsa’s dress sold out of Disney Stores and online, but on eBay you can buy the dress at more than $1,000 for the real-deal original. Some blame Disney for enticing their daughters, then leaving them dress-less. I say it’s a great time to teach our children they can’t always get want they want. It’s the same in your business. You want the newest smartphone out there, but your present perfectly good one has one more year left on its contract. You could buy the new phone at full price. But do you REALLY need the new phone right now? Probably not. Appease yourself by buying a new phone case for the old one, or upgrading your printer. This sort of question arises often for entrepreneurs. Make the right decision to be fiscally smart.
