Rustic is the key word to describe items offered for sale by a Winchuck River area resident on her new Web site, http://www.winchuckriverstore.com. Karen Clark describes her Web site wares as a unique selection of "perfect rustic home accents."

Clark, who moved to the area from San Jose, Calif., in 1999 with her husband Jim, began using the computer as a successful selling tool after consulting several books and attending eBay University in San Jose, Calif. She remains active on eBay discussion boards where other eBay sellers share their ideas and experiences.

A few months after beginning her eBay business in 2006, she became a Power Seller, with an average of $1,000 in sales per month for three consecutive months and feedback from at least 100 eBay buyers, of which 98 percent or more were positive.

She also became a Trading Assistant with eBay, which qualifies her to sell for others. Her eBay store can be accessed at http://stores.ebay.com/ winchuck-river-store.

Her knowledge is shared with others in the e-Bay classes she teaches at the Brookings campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College.

Karen Clark would like to begin a group, interacting with other people using eBay.

She can be reached by phoning (541) 412-0909 or by e-mail, at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

She also encourages people to "check out our blog to see what we are up to," http://winchuckriverstore.blogspot.com.

The mood was also tempered by persistent geopolitical concerns and anemic manufacturing surveys in Asia and Europe showing pockets of weakness in the global economy. Tokyo's Nikkei (.N225) bucked the trend and rose 1.2 percent, with a planned cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe helping fuel reform hopes.
  • U.S. business lobby says concerned China antitrust probes unfair
    Foreign companies are increasingly concerned they are being targeted by Chinese regulators, a U.S. The American Chamber of Commerce in China is the latest business lobby to air its grievances over a series of investigations scrutinizing at least 30 foreign firms, as China seeks to enforce a 2008 anti-monopoly law. There are growing perceptions that multinational firms are under "selective and subjective enforcement" using "legal and extra-legal approaches", the Chamber said in a report. A survey of 164 members showed 49 percent of respondents felt foreign companies were being singled out in recent pricing and anti-corruption campaigns, compared to 40 percent in a late 2013 survey of 365 members.
