Linda Lightman began her eBay career by selling her children's videogames, and she's since switched over to selling designer duds under the account Linda's Stuff. Now, her business pulls in $12 million a year, and she sells about 500 items a day and 15,000 items a month. Refinery29 documented the goods (like these Hermès boots, size 7) in a video and an accompanying slideshow, so if you want to see how to do eBay right, this is your lesson. [Refinery29]
