New Look for OLA coming soon!

Not only is going to be upgrading the category selection  from a 2-tier system to a new, improved 4-tier system…but OLA is going to be making changes to the penny-over auction.  It will be in the style of a buy it now.  This is going to make it so much easier for search engines like Google Search, MSN search and Yahoo to pick up.  This is great news for us all and we are looking forward to it with anticipation.

The majority of the changes are slated for late June, early July, but no exact date has been set.  As we all know, it takes a great deal of time for programmers to write code, and for all of the testing to be done and make sure things are working nice and smoothly.  So keep that in mind when you stop by and check us out.

Update on The Rummage Sale!! 

Here is a letter OLA itself received from a very happy buyer who made some purchases during our recent Rummage Sale Event that was organized by the sellers at

Posted today by our Customer Support and Forum Administrator, Renee:

 This was sent to Support and I thought it was worth sharing!For those that participated in the Rummage Sale:

Hi just wanted to let you know I purchased 9 items during rummage sale all sellers where so honest on their shipping charges!! Not like some other auction site(I wont tell you it was eBay ). I wish you could let them sellers know we appreciate their honesty. This speaks well of the folks using your site thank you, joey56

Thank You Joey!! We are all very happy that you are so pleased with your shopping experience at OLA!  It is so nice to hear such compliments!

In fact, there have been quite a few posts made in the last few days from people who had made purchases during the auction, and the majority is very clear in their satisfaction in their experiences.   I also had made some bids, and won items…some of which have already arrived and I am extremely happy with the outcome of this event.

We have discussed the potential of having more sales in the near future.  One suggestion was for a Christmas in July, however, with all of the upcoming changes, it has been decided to hold off until things have settled a bit.  I am sure that there will be various sellers that are having their own sales at various times.  I will let you know who and when as I hear of them.
