Dan Carlsen’s sharp idea

Best known for his knife and tool sharpening business, Dan Carlsen's branched out to cyberspace. 

The long time St. John resident started selling some of his unneeded stuff on eBay. Now he's doing it for other people, according to a profile of Carlsen published by the St. John Source.

InkOperating as the Coral Bay Market, he takes in items people want to sell, takes photographs, writes descriptions and posts them on the online auction service.  He charges a 15% commission.

Most of his current inventory of almost 300 items are books, CDs, and sports memorabilia.  The most expensive is a package of eight high-end color cartridges for a professional Epson printer (pictured at left).
