Do everything in your power to avoid spending money when you start a business. Build a lean solution that provides value to your customers and only spend money on the absolute essentials at the moment you need them.

It is always easier to sell or describe an item that is appreciated and adored by the seller which in turn offers up a clear description for a potential buyer. Those darn descriptions that are so brief can be a red flag not only the person is a quick buck kind of seller but also may lose the interest of a potential buyer.

Advertise, advertise, advertise. The blind cannot eat if they know not where food is..

@12n12 GREAT advice Smiley Very Happy Advertising is a MUST.  This is not a matter of "post it and they will buy". Can't sit back and hope to rake in the dough, won't happen. Diligence, freshness (do you need to re-do photos or tweak descriptions?), join many FB groups and post! Use search engine optimizers, pinterest, twitter, etc.

The best bussiness advice I’ve ever gotten is “Never do business with a friend or your significant other “

If I were in Your situation I would take this as a learning experience and instead of being upset or bringing that feeling to yourself because the buyer didn’t understand or misread whatever the issue was at least what you gained is a learning experience for the next buyer and that negative review won’t mean anything hope this helps
