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.

  • Heineken confirms, rebuffs SABMiller bid
    LONDON/AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch brewer Heineken HEIN.AS said on Sunday it was approached by larger rival SABMiller SAB.L about a potential takeover but that its controlling shareholder intended to keep the company independent. The maker of Heineken and Amstel beers said it consulted with its majority shareholder and concluded that SABMiller's proposal was "non-actionable". "The Heineken family has informed SABMiller, Heineken and Heineken Holding of its intention to preserve the heritage and identity of Heineken as an independent company," it said in a statement. The founding family owns just over 50 percent of Heineken via Heineken Holding HEIO.AS.
