Friends, Family, Community and Sheet Music
I have enormously been enriched by the friends I’ve made on Listia. I am able to share craft ideas and add to my collection. Over a year ago, I’d lost a lot of weight. I needed to get rid of my fat clothes. I started listing my bigger size clothes on Listia. Customers kept encouraging me to continue losing weight. So, because of their kindness and friendship, I now have lost close to 100 pounds! I also discovered that there were people on Listia who could not get out to go shopping because of disabilities. Some of these individuals were winning some of my auctions. It was these same individuals who kept encouraging me to continue with my weight loss. They may have gained some nice clothes, but I was enriched by their encouragement and friendship! I have also been able to purchase some seeds for our High School garden on Listia. One of the teachers works in the flower garden and vegetable garden. Both she and I have gained a lot of great advice from some of the Listian gardeners. You are never too old to learn! The lady that is using the vegetable seeds I’ve purchased on Listia is giving the food she grows to the local food pantry. Plus, the flower seeds I’ve purchased are enjoyed by thousands as they transverse the High School halls. I’ve been able to purchase some items that remind me of people that I’ve loved who have since passed on. I’ve discovered antiques that remind me of my grandmother, tatting patterns that remind me of my old music teacher, and even sheet music that I can play for people on the piano in nursing homes! Listia has been a blessing to myself, my family, and my community. It has enriched our lives! Thank you, Listia!!! You are more than just an auction site! You add so much enjoyment to our lives!
I discovered Listia one day through Facebook as I was messaging my dad. I noticed all these wonderful posts about free listings and I just had to find out what it was about! Boy oh boy I thought how amazing is this site?? I started learning how everything worked and I was off lol. My children now tell everyone that there mom is a Listia addict. It is a wonderful place for people to come not only to auction off items and to win items but also to meet great people and to work with charities. I am a disabled women and it is hard for me to get out to go shopping and things so this is wonderful for me, I absolutely love it!! I just got my seller wings on my last auction…hippeeee 😀 It is a very fun and exciting site and I have been on a roll getting my friends and family involved because they are always asking ” what is this Listia you keep talking about and getting all these great things from” and I say well let me show you lol.
