With a newfound access to a phone line and a laptop computer in May, 2000 I was able to locate oil lamp part wholesalers and began selling parts online through ebay. Subsequently I learned the basics of HTML and ooened my own website. Although it began as a supplemental income, it is now an entirely not-for-profit enterprise.
