After operating the calplants websites and ebay stores since 2000, in 2009 we decided to implement a prebuilt store using updated technology. On this website, you will find everything offered in our Cactusbylin ebay store. However, the prices and shipping costs will be slightly lower. The ebay auction model seems to be changing to a fixed price model. We averaged 500 items in our Cactusbylin ebay store and typically less than 20 items in live auction. For the buyer, the advantage is that you do not have to wait seven days for the auction to get close to the end and then duke it out with other bidders, only to loose and wait another seven days. With the fixed price model, you can just buy it now. So creating another channel with a more appropriately named URL for our famous specimen plants seems to be the next logical step. Enjoy browsing the site.
