I'd like to volunteer myself as your agent, someone to
help you get started on eBay - I get 20% of course ;-)
Seriously, yes, there ARE truly people who will value
the work you do, provided you dole out the products

Plus, unlike the one fetching the high bids, your work
is highly visible and thus creates less uncertainty in
the minds of people.
