Longview Woman Auctions Ebay Advertisement

A Longview woman is getting into advertising, in a unique way through Ebay. She's selling space on her house, car and even the clothes she wears, to the highest bidder. 25-year-old Teena Peck is a stay-at-home mother of two, and says she needed to earn some extra money. So, she decided to sell ad space, on her house, car and even herself.

"I just had to think of something unusual that no one else had done and I looked on Ebay and no one else had done this," Teena said.

Saying her home on FM 1844 is a prime traffic location, she's offering ad space on her home and car for 30 days. She's already gotten more than 1400 looks on the auction site.

"You just have to have a creative mind and you can sell it, you just have to think about it."

But Teena is not stopping at her property line.

"I'm going to be wearing either a shirt or pants with their advertisement on my clothing for 30 days everywhere I go."

Teena says she got the idea from seeing some of the bizarre things auctioned on Ebay.

"I just saw everyone selling their forehead and changing their name for money on Ebay, and I thought it was a great opportunity."

Teena says she'll use the money from the auction to pay bills and use in her children's college fund. The auction ends April 28th at 10 a.m.
