TM stands for trademark. You can only register for a trademark if your goods are sold outside of your own state which would be easy on eBay.

Hi. You can sell your items on EBay without opening a store, but I would assume you would be able to apply for a trade mark anyway?

Many businesses apply for trade marks before they start trading, or have customers.

Trademarks are established by use in commerce; in theory they shouldn't be granted without proof of that use. The alternative is to file an "intent to use" application, then file for an actual trademark.
