It does seem all good things come to an end, and this can include businesses. MyMugs.com, a maker of custom printed coffee mugs owned by a friend of mine, is closing. He has decided to leave the business, and has posted the assets of the business for sale on eBay. If you’re in the market for a dye sublimation convection oven, this is the auction for you!
Among the assets listed are the domain names for the business. The list includes the main name, mymugs.com, and a few dozen others related to the sale of custom coffee mugs to different audiences and different purposes. If you are in the mug business, these names could be for you. If you are a domainer or domain name investor, these names could be for you as well.
After he posted the list of names, we talked about how the auction will close and how much he will get for them. Like me, he started the auction at US$1.00 and will see how far it goes. As these names are being sold as a lot, someone may be interested in one or a few names and is bidding based on that. There is competition in the space of the custom mug business, ranging from small businesses to Walgreen’s stores selling custom photo mugs.
The auction closes on June 11, 2008 at about 9 pm PT. I’ll be watching this one, and perhaps even placing a few bids.Business • Domain Names • (5) Comments • Permalink
