Instead of answering this question for you myself, I approached a fellow tea blogger, Angela McRae at Tea with Friends. As a regular reader of her blog, I know Angela finds many tea treasures through eBay. I wanted to learn more about how she does it and believed it would benefit you, my readers, as well.

In this 30-minute interview, I asked Angela questions you will want to hear her answers to including:

  • Her top three pieces of advice for someone wanting to start a tea party collection through eBay.
  • How Angela searches eBay with a time-saving tip.
  • How she gained an item for $9 worth $325 even though she lost an auction.

I thoroughly enjoyed “meeting” Angela and getting to know her a bit. As a Californian, I relished connecting with a true Southern girl. Thanks, Angela!
