How was your first attempt at dropshipping?

My first attempt at DropShipping was over 20 years ago back in 1997.

I would go to a store that sold handmade wooden statues and I would take pictures with my camera (smartphones didn’t have good cameras).

Then I would upload the pictures to eBay USA and try to sell the items for 2 or 3 times the price.

When someone would buy my item I would run back to the store and buy it, then ship it to the customer.

The reality is that every item was unique, and often I would get to the store and the item I wanted had been sold! lol

It took 10 more years until people started talking about it all over social media, and finally, some tools started to be developed.
