Meet the Founder

RustyRed's was founded in 2006, when Linda began selling items on eBay. Four years later, she was having a conversation with a friend about the TV show Bonanza. To settle their question, they searched for "Bonanza" on Google, and the rest was history. Linda's first impression of Bonanza? "I liked everything about Bonanza. It had such a friendly, family vibe, and it was fun meeting new selling friends who were eager to help me get started."

When asked what advice she has for new sellers, Linda said "If I could tell a new seller anything, I would tell them to keep their prices competitive with eBay sellers. Stay on top of your bmails and respond to everyone who has a question about your booth."

In her spare time, Linda loves giving compliments to strangers, watching reality tv shows, and anything related to aliens. If she could spend a day with anyone, it would be Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest scientists that ever lived. You probably recognize his name from the automobile company that's named after him, but "if you have never heard of him, it's because he was branded as a mad scientist after telling other scientists that his inventions were inspired by alien messages he received. Our world would be more advanced if Tesla would of the honors he deserved - Google his name and be amazed."

RustyRed's Booth

Linda likes carrying a wide variety of items and sells "a little bit of everything. Bonanza's fees are fair, so I am able to keep my prices lower than on eBay. When I do make a sale on eBay, I send the purchase with a business card of mine for Bonanza. I offer them a reason to come on over and check out my items on Bonanza in the future." Here are a few of Linda's favorite picks from her booth:

Nolan Miller's Fancy Scroll Pendant and Chain

Made with the finest simulated diamonds around. Lobster claw clasp. Pendant is 2.25" x 1.5" and chain is 16" with 2" extender.

RustyRed's Hand Picked Lists 

Linda loves to use the Hand Picked Lists feature on Bonanza. "For quite a long time now, I have enjoyed running a Hand Picked List called "Trove of Treasures." I do a new version every week that's posted on Sunday or Monday. Some items are new and others have been on the list before, but all items are under $31.00. I feature lots of items from booths that have discounts. Quite a few people stop by to see what the picks are for each week, and some nice sales have been made through the list.

Parting Words

Thanks for reading about Linda and RustyRed's House! Don't forget to check out her booth for awesome deals. Here's a final note from Linda:

"Remember friends, think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be insane. If you're ever in my area, stop by for some roadkill stew. Hope I gave you that first laugh for the day!"
