    There is no hiding the fact that Refinery29 is home to many an eBay addict. We are not in recovery. And we don't plan on entering any time soon. No, we all happily indulge each other's fashion fetishes with frequent Instant Message debates over an object's worthiness. And very often, those objects come from Linda's Stuff, a Pennsylvania-based seller with more than 75,000 incredible items up for grabs. The seller is Linda Lightman, a former lawyer who started her eBay empire by hawking her kids' video games. And, as the saying goes, the rest is history. Now, those video games have been replaced by labels like Proenza Schouler, Hermès, Dolce & Gabbana, Manolo Blahnik (she's got PILES of 'em!), not to mention, mountains of incredible vintage that thrift whores like us would—and do!—go nuts over. Linda's Stuff works mostly on consignment, and while she couldn't reveal many of the bold-faced names she works with, she was able to share that New York Housewife Jill Zarin is a client, and all her sales go to charity, which, of course, makes us like her even more. When we heard Ms. Lightman was the most profitable seller of fashion and accessories on eBay, like $12 million worth of profitable, we had to take a road trip to meet her, and see the Linda's Stuff warehouse for ourselves. Luckily, you get to come along, as we filmed our adventure.

The REAL List Of The Best Cities For Single Women

Why do the “Best Cities for Single Women” lists always put the availability of single men as their top deciding factor? Man-snagging isn't everyone's number-one priority, and don't even get us started on how unhelpful these lists are for queer gals. Then there's the fact that an overabundance of single men can often read
