What is eBay?

eBay, dubbed the "World's Online Marketplace" is a prime spot to buy, sell and network with others who are, well, buying and selling. More than that, it's a stable, green industry that promises to be around for many years to come. Couple that with the security of PayPal payments, also powered by eBay, and you've got the makings of success.

Direct from the Artist

eBay has a special section, that's probably underutilized by many, called Direct from the Artist. This section has over 100,000 pieces of artwork that is being sold directly from the individual who created it! You have the chance to own an original drawing, painting, sculpture, and so on, before that person could potentially become famous!

This section is broken up into several easier-to-handle categories. They include:

  • Drawings
  • Prints
  • Photographs
  • Sculptures & Carvings
  • Folk Art & Primitives
  • Mixed Media & Collage
  • Textile Art

So, no matter what you're looking for, chances are, you can find it on eBay.
