She Sells Seeds To Support Her Hobby
“When I get into something, I go all in,” says Hartzler-Snook. “My mother is a state-certified Master Gardener, and as I got older, I got into it too. A few years ago, I decided that I might as well let my habit pay for itself. I started selling seeds online.”
“Seed sales took off,” she says. “They haven’t slowed down. I get messages from people asking for one seed packet of each that I have listed.”
Hartzler-Snook sells her seeds on eBay with most selections priced at $1.50 to $2.00 for a packet of 20 seeds. To handle shipping, she charges $4.26, regardless of how many packets are ordered. Discounts are available for orders of multiple varieties.
“I’ve seen some of the seeds I sell priced at $6 or more for 10 seeds,” she says. “My most expensive one is a rare type that starts black and turns creamy white when it’s mature.”
Hartzler-Snook likes the way eBay works. Currently, she has more than 200 peppers listed, along with their photos. Search for Heirloom Pepper Seeds-Many Unusual Varieties-One Shipping Charge.
