Ok here it is;
What or why is the purpose to having 2 or mone stores? Someone told me to open another store just for my trunks.
Now if I do this how will this help me?
How will this help people find my items better?

Most people open more than one store so they can specialize
after all, some things just dont mix well.

like selling Designer Clothes & Accessories and Car Parts,
Two opposite ends of the spectrum.
Trying to sell them both in the same store is certainly possible
but if you want your customer to get an overall FEEL for
your product it is better to centralize each main product
So you would open up a store dedicated to Car Parts separate from
the Clothes & Accessories store.

Ive looked at your store, and everything you have listed flows very well
together. Now if you are looking to add Video games , or Lawn & Garden tools I suggests a new store Laughing

We have 5 stores by the way

I also have two stores...they are just too different to combine and each has it's own Paypal account.

So would I be better off by putting my trunks in a store and the the rest of the other old junk in the store I do have now.

I think an extra store for your current size and offerings is unnecessary. If you plan to do a lot of fashion accessory/jewelry then I would put them in another store but all the rest really fits in beautifully as antique vintage collectibles.

If you plan to get really huge, then you might want to divide up into indoor and outdoor antiques or something like that.

I have 9 different stores.
Why?
mainly because I like my stores to be search engine friendly and mixing unrelated items don't help at all with SEO.
Big & Tall Mens clothing for example don't relate to formal dresses. So formals are in one store and b & t clothing in another.

In your case - you currently have 44 items and only one is a trunk. NO WAY would I suggest a new store as it appears that the all your items are related to me.
Now if you have 100 or so of different types of trunks - then you might think about a different store to better focus the meta tags etc on just that type of item. But for a dozen or less, I wouldn't suggest it.

This is against PayPal policy - one person is allowed only one business account with PayPal. I know, I found out the heard way - they shut down one of my accounts!

NO not unless you have a bunch of them as I mentioned above. If you only have say 25 of them I would leave them in this store. ALL your products appear to be related to me - old stuff. Your trunks are old - right?
Watch your balance and change your meta tags to reflect the balance.

Thanks for the info on Paypal but it really doesn't apply in my case.

ldbmediastorage is an account I started and manage through my employer so the financial aspects are all in his name because the products are his.

enchantedpotions is my personal account and has all my financial information.

Drag. As far as eCrater goes you can use the Contact form at www.ecrater.com and request the name change. It may not be done super quickly though. Then your name will be changed here in the forums (or maybe you have to re-register for the forums, I'm not sure).

Your trunks are old - right?

Yes they are all old. I have close to 80 but I got to find the time to refinish them. I do a lot of coustom refinishing work for people , so my time on trunks are limited. I could get 3-5 done a week if I didn't work on anything else. Like now I am refinishing a 3 story home here south of town, big country home. Plus I got 8 items here to do for other people. I work weekends on them and sneek in a trunk once in a while.

Thanks for you reply big
