Score Board

Welcome to the “Score Board”!  The “Score Board” is a place where you can tell the world about your recent “scores”!  I hope that it will become an educational resource for eBay sellers.   Learn about what sells by checking the “Score Board” on a regular basis!


The more “scores” submitted, the better!  Here’s how it works:


1.  Enter your name, email, and website address (if you have one) below.


2. Send me a brief description of your recent “score” along with a picture of the item you sold.


3. Be sure to mention your userid and/or store name so that people can check out your other goodies. (Free advertising.  Yay!)


4. If possible, send me a link to the item.


Hope to hear from you soon!

    Bought this REI vintage sleeping bag for $10 and sold it for $75! People like to see how much loft sleeping bags have. That is why I took a pic with a tape measure!

    I buy bulk CDs and DVDs. Got a good deal on over 1000 CDs for about 3 cents each.

    Sold this one for $23.00 (over half of what I paid for the entire lot).

    What sells on eBay?

    Arita buttons! Beautiful Japanese porcelain, circa 1930’s imported to the US in the ’50’s, these buttons rocked on eBay! I had 6 of them and sold them for $232! I sold one in just 6 hours. Then had a set of 5 for $200 or best offer and blew that by counteroffering. Who wouldn’t take $175 for 5 buttons? My counter was declined. I learned a big lesson! Dickering is better done in person. Listing closed no sale. I relisted a set of 3 which auctioned for $102! And sold the other 2 for $40 each. I ended up selling the set of 5 for $182.
