Got this from a relative who teaches in Las Cruces NM. It appears to be an online market for school supplies that tend to accumulate boundlessly in public school storage rooms around the world.
Relative did not know how Cheryl, who did not disclose her last name, got her email address. Probably just by trolling the internet and doing the email equivalent of junk mailing long lists of addresses that are free and easy to procure.
I’ve been teaching for 18 years and wanted a way for all educators to be able to buy and sell their no longer needed teaching supplies, so my husband and I created Hoot of Loot. If you have some unused teaching supplies, please list them on website developed by me and my husband which is at no cost to users who wish to exhange dated school materials.
This husband wife team appears to be making money on some type of unmentioned handling/transaction fee? Their cost for this enterprise appears to be nothing more than the time they are spending.
Please forward this email to other teachers that might have used supplies to sell. Maybe even your principal or superintendent that has closets full of unused material that could make some money for your school. Can you say potential exponential growth and endless scale as upside here? Also no downside if it flops. Very intelligent way to initiate a zero cost profitable enterprise. Let’s hope Cheryl and Dad pile up some loot in their volume based entrepreneurial foray.
