I know there have been some in the past.... just wondering if anyone has noticed any that are currently for sale (or will be in the near future)? I just didn't really know WHERE to look to find one, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have been playing with the idea of starting a website for listing WAHM businesses for sale, looking to buy requests, and inventory clearance. It seems that many are looking to buy and sell business and there really isn't a central place for them to go to meet up. I'm definitely going to hash out the details and get this thing going!

Your post is the kick in the rear I needed!

As far as businesses for sale, I believe BabyAnnouncements.net is looking for a new owner. Link: http://www.babyannouncements.net/generic.html?pid=162.

Oh... sewing, I think. Diapers, slings.... or jewelry. But I'm open to ANYTHING. Who knows... maybe I'd end up doing something I never would have thought of.

And thanks pease, that sounds like a great idea for a website...... and I'll check out that link too, thank you.

I was going to recommend www.diaperdecisions.com as well as they are a great resource for this. They have a businesses for sale listing under Business Tools at the bottom. Also www.purplepenguin.ca is for sale and I don't know if it's on the dd site.

Hope this helps!
