eBay Sellers Speak to White House Staff about State of Small Business

January 25, 2024

This week, the Americas Government Relations team organized a roundtable conversation with six eBay sellers and members of the National Economic Council staff at the White House to talk about key policy issues impacting eBay and our seller community.

Mehdi Narimanian & Joy Woodruff of Sound of Tri-State, Yinka Ogunsunlade of Fashionably Legal, Rebecca Leigh of Textile Magic Collection, Robin Thomas of Books with Character, and Candace Fitzsimmons of NVA Fam talked with White House staff about how eBay is critical to their livelihood and is a partner in their success.

"It’s great whenever we’re able to highlight eBay sellers who have successfully grown their business — and even more exciting when we can do it at the White House."

-Cathy Foster, eBay Vice President, Global Government Relations & Public Policy 

The sellers were also profiled in local news stories in Philadelphia and Washington, DC.

We would like to thank these six sellers for taking time away from their small businesses to discuss policies that affect all US sellers on the eBay marketplace.
