We’re Estate Sale VIPs!

 

Just got back from an estate sale.  I’m happy to announce that we are estate sale VIPs!  Yup, we’re on a list.  One of the estate sale companies in town has been inviting us to attend its “preview” days.  Love it!

 

The sale we previewed today had at least 50 pairs of shoes. Check out these sequined heels.  Perfect for anyone planning on being Dorothy for Halloween!

Got Kites?

 

Ever sold a kite?  A few weeks ago, my cousin took this photo at a kite flying competition on the Oregon Coast.  Very nice! Every once in a while I see kites at yard sales.  I’ve never purchased one to resell, have you?  Click here to see the completed listings for kites.  Wow!  $725?

Wine Tasting + Thrifting = Awesome!

 

This weekend we went wine tasting. On the way back from the wineries, we stopped at a little thrift shop.  At the back of the store was a bookshelf on which stacks of brand new vintage H Bar C western shirts were organized.  Crazy!  We bought 4 of them for $10 each. We’re going to try to sell them in a lot for $150.  If that doesn’t work, we’ll sell them individually.  Click here to see the completed listings for H Bar C shirts.

 

In addition, I picked up my first Lisa Frank binder.  The owner of the shop actually gave it to me for free since we bought more than one shirt.  I’d like to thank Jason and the Thrifting Board for making me aware of this product!  Click here to see the completed listings for Lisa Frank products.

 

Before I go, I wanted to let all of you know that eBay just released a new commercial. I’ve already seen it several times. I really like it because it spreads the word that eBay is the place to buy new and used items.  It also reminds people that shopping on the site can save them money.

 

Good job, eBay!

eBay Will Be Offering Holiday-Themed eBay Shipping Supplies!

 

christmas

 

Believe it or not, I’m getting ready for the holidays!  Just picked up a bunch of brand new do-it-yourself men’s ugly Christmas ties.  We’ll see how that goes!

 

I might sell them in lots.  One issue with this product is that it comes in a box that could easily be damaged.  That means it needs to be shipped in a way that protects it from getting squashed.  That means it’s going to cost more to ship.

 

So I’m going to try to sell these ties in lots!  I haven’t had much luck buying new items to resell, but I’m not giving up!  (If anyone has any advice on how to market or ship this product, leave a comment!)

 

Speaking of holidays….

 

I was listening to eBay Radio yesterday, and Hal Lawton, eBay’s SVP of North America and a Top-Rated Seller, revealed that eBay will be offering holiday-themed shipping supplies.  Can’t wait!  (I wonder if eBay will offer holiday tape.) In addition to offering festive shipping supplies, eBay will be releasing a number of new commercials this holiday season.

 

That’s it for now.
