Got Vintage Pataloha?

It’s almost summer!  Can you believe it?  I’ve been wearing my sunglasses every day!

Speaking of summer…

 

Have you listed any “Aloha” or Hawaiian shirts lately?  Listing Hawaiian shirts can take some time, so it’s important to focus on shirts that are worth quite a bit of money.  We try to buy name brand or vintage shirts that are funky and photogenic.

 

One of my readers just posted a Pataloha score to the scoreboard.  (Pataloha is a line of Hawaiian shirts produced by Patagonia.)  Click here to read about the history of the Pataloha shirt.  Click here to check out the Pataloha shirt featured on the scoreboard!  (Don’t forget to post your latest finds!)

I’m Not a Top-Rated Seller… Are You?

 

A while back, we lost our Top-Rated Seller Status.  Dang!  I hate that!  According to eBay, we aren’t shipping quickly enough.  According to us, our carrier is still not scanning packages the way he should!  Luckily, we’re on track to get it back on May 20th!

FYI:  If you’d like to keep up on the Top-Rated Seller and Top-Rated Seller Plus requirements, click here.

 

Last weekend, Johnny found these cool Pyrex pieces.  I could easily sell them, but I’ve decided to keep them.  I discovered that this is the “Bar Code” pattern.  Click here to see the completed listings for this pattern. And if you want to see something really cool, search for “Moon Dot” pyrex. Oh my gosh! I want one….to sell!

What Sells on eBay? Rolodex

 

rolodexA few weeks ago, I was interviewed by the guys at So You Want to Sell on eBay!  Click here to check it out!

 

In other news….

 

This weekend, I went to a super funky estate sale.  The house in which the estate sale took place looked like something out of an episode of Columbo.  Fast forward 24 hours…  This morning, I was listening to the Scavenger Life podcast.  Jay and Ryanne were talking about the fact that Rolodex cards and files sell.  Darn!  I bet that estate sale had some!  The Rolodex cards pictured above sold for $78 including shipping!  Click here to see the completed listings for the term Rolodex.

Is Your Thrift Shop Charging $185 for Tory Burch Jackets?

Spent the weekend in San Luis Obispo. My thrift shop-loving, flea market-fanatic nephews were all excited to find some deals!  They are so hardcore.  It was noon, and they wanted to know if I could use a garage sale app to find any sales they may have missed that morning.  (I convinced them to go to Goodwill instead!)

On Sunday, we checked out the SLO flea market.  Here’s my flea market tip: Beware of hot products. No, I don’t mean hot as in stolen but hot as in temperature!  (Though you do have to be careful of the former at some flea markets.)

 

If the product you’re thinking about purchasing is held together by glue, and it has been sitting out in the sun a while, inspect it carefully.  Glue can get gooey when it’s hot.

 

Another seller who has been thrifting on the road is Jason T. Smith.  A few days ago, he posted a video of himself in New York City.  Even though NYC is one of the most expensive cities in the world, he’s been finding some good stuff.

 

On the other hand, one of the shops he visited was selling a used Tory Burch jacket for $185.  Ouch!  Click here to see the completed listings for used Tory Burch jackets.  A few of them sell for quite a bit, but the prices quickly dip.

 

If you’d like to watch Jason filming from NYC, click here!  Fun stuff!
