  1. Members of the family are actively avoiding Amazon at every turn.
    When I search for something, I start on page 2 and go from there to find a Little Guy selling what I want.
    Meanwhile, I’ve cancelled transactions in the Thousands of dollars (just this year) on a selling venue where people are conditioned to skip the little guy and bow to corporate regardless of how bad they know corporate treats us,
    That’s DANGEROUS.
    Stop kissing corporate’s a$$.
    Real people, like me, have beautiful products people want, but now they feel uncomfortable buying from a non corporate entity.
    Corporate has poisoned the well.
    There may be no recovery from it unless there is a Grand Campaign touting the American Little Guy.

  2. I agree, @TheEnd. Watching what they are doing is closing small businesses, which is the entire agenda of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum. It’s all on their site. It would be worth every business owner to watch any of Patrick Wood’s videos on Tchnocracy. Here’s one interview with him, there are many others. Worth watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hjAwC_SMFY

  3. I agree with you; however, as a buyer, I often purchase according to price, and often (not always) find that the little guy’s price is higher, and I tend to conclude that the little guy originally purchased the item from the big guy. Also, in several instances, I’ve experienced the disappearance of the little guy after the sale is complete. It is more difficult for corporate to hide, though corporate is expert in the pass-the-buck game. It is true that the little guy has to work harder to get my loyalty, as I tend to expect more from the little guy. Btw, I already gave up on being a little guy seller. So, I have no real answers for you, just posting my 2 cents.

    There’s a thing called an SSL certificate. Every eCommerce shop owner must pass stringent vetting.
    So, the “Shop owner went missing” scenario is IMPOSSIBLE now.

  5. JudyF :
    You must have purchased something off Ebay or Etsy.
    They are the WORST.
    It’s WAY better to buy from a Dependable Independent Business with it’s own website.
    ALSO : Set your browser to HTTPS Only.
    The days of giving the Little Guy a black eye are OVER.
