What Can You Buy for $1 and Sell for $99?

 


Hey!  It’s been a long time!  October and November were two of our biggest months ever.  We’ve been going out of town to source more valuable merchandise.  Totally worth it.  And we still have the day after Thanksgiving to look forward to.  50% off sales, here we come!  If you want to learn more about sourcing better merchandise, check out my latest eBay radio interview.

 

 

So what can you purchase for $1 and sell for $99?  A Laser Link NFE Golf Ball Measurer!  Yup, we sold one a few weeks ago.  We already received positive feedback from the buyer, so it’s a done deal!

I need to get going now, but I did want to remind all of you to listen to How I Built This, a podcast all about entrepreneurs who built amazing businesses.  I’ve listened to each and every episode!

Are You Fat?

Mufasa is.  Mufasa (our school’s fluffy mascot) really knows how to work a crowd.  As a result, he eats at about five times a day.  He could definitely stand to lose a few lbs.

 

I think he needs to start going with us to yard sales.  We’ve been seeing a lot of cat beds and scratching posts, and we recently picked up a vintage skinfold caliper.  Calipers measure body fat. They’re very useful if you’re trying to lose weight.

Although a completed listing search by brand made it seem like the caliper we found wasn’t worth much, Johnny insisted on buying it.  A more general search later revealed that these devices can be worth quite a bit of money.  We picked it up for $5 and sold it for $50. Not bad!

The Cat Is Out of the Bag … Kinda

So, I just finished watching the latest eBay for Business Facebook Live video.  Loved it!  During the video, Griff revealed that next year’s customer appreciation event will probably be in (drum roll, please) VEGAS!

 

Yes!  Tickets to Vegas are cheap, and hotel rooms can be very inexpensive.  (I do, however, recommend staying at the hotel at which the event takes place.  We loved the Venetian!)  I hope that eBay decides to go ahead with this plan.  We had such a good time at the last event.

 

Anyway, check out the video here.  It’s full of great info. During the live video, Joe Demarco of The Crazeenydriver Show reminded viewers that eBay will be hosting a webinar tomorrow all about the new “Returns Resolution Pilot.”  Click here to register!

A Band of Thieves Broke Into My Car and Stole My eBay Packages!

A few weeks ago, my neighbor knocked on my front door at about 10 in the morning.  He’d stopped by to inform me that I’d been robbed.

 

Yup.  That’s right.  A band of thieves had broken into the back of my open car and taken an armful of packages.  They thought they’d hit the jackpot, but they soon found out that they’d stolen a backseat full of used women’s shoes.  Luckily, these packages were all returns!  So hilarious!

 

After realizing that they’d been duped, the thieves threw the packages into the street.  That’s how my neighbor knew to contact me.  Oh!  The dangers of selling on eBay!

 

Before I go, I wanted to remind all of you to sign up for eBay’s “Attract Holiday Shoppers With Promoted Listings” webinar and to watch Crazeenydrivershow‘s latest episode. It’s all about increasing your eBay sales!  Finally, I am happy to announce that the holiday-themed shipping supplies have arrived! Click here to place your order!

 

That’s it for now. Don’t forget: If you’d like to win a 30-minute question-and-answer session with yours truly, post a “score” to the score board!  And if you’d like a free list of 10 items to sell on eBay, sign up for my blog!
