Top eBay Hardgoods Sales: May 2019

May was an absolute roller coaster of eBay sales.  At different times of the month, we were up 15% from last year or down 10%.  We had two $1,000 days and 1 day with absolutely no sales whatsoever.  Like, not a single one.  This hasn’t happened to us in years!  A quick call to eBay …

Top eBay Clothing Sales: April 2019

In addition to our normal sourcing, this month we decided to see if we could make $1,000 from online arbitrage.  While we (barely) failed, we did branch out a lot more that we normally do in our sourcing.  We have a pretty solid routine and get the majority of our inventory from 4 thrift stores …

Top eBay Hardgoods Sales: April 2019

Traditionally, this is the time of year that our sales start to slow.  The summer slump seems to start early for us, and we fight back by trying to ramp up our number of items before our sourcing budget starts to dwindle.  In the past, stocking up on hardgoods has been one of the best …

To eBay Clothing Sales: March 2019

March was a slow month for us.  We slowed down a bit on listing and didn’t buy any liquidation lots this month though, so we have no one to blame but ourselves.  While we’re still over the $10,000 a month mark (our lower limit), we have fallen back to around the point we were at …

Top eBay Hardgoods Sales: March 2019

We have spent the majority of March (and April so far) focusing on some other projects, so we have had to change the way that we do eBay a little bit. We are ever so slowly continuing to push our average sale price closer to $100. We’re just shy of $50 at the moment, but …

Top eBay Clothing Sales: February 2019

February was a stellar month for us.  People go crazy preparing for 4th quarter sales every year but some of our best sales are in Q1.  I would assume it’s because everyone is home and depressed with the post-holiday blues and want to drown their sadness with used goods from eBay!  Whatever the reason is, …

Top eBay Hardgoods Sales: February 2019

February wasn’t a super exciting month but our sales are continuing to climb.  We’re up 16% from where we were at this time last year which, when we’re already working as much as possible, just shows that we’ve gotten better at what we do! Bose sells…and thrift stores know it.  Every time I find Bose …

Top eBay Clothing Sales: January 2019

Although our new year didn’t start with a huge bang, it was a definite improvement over January 2018.  (In case you weren’t around, we had an unwarranted 3-day suspension on eBay that lasted from January 1st to the 3rd…) Sales were up around 10% from last year at this time, which is probably a testament …

Top eBay Hardgoods Sales: January 2019

We looked through our eBay Solds at the end of 2018 and did some heavy figuring.  What we found out was, while 2/3 of our store was made up of clothing, 2/3 of our sales were made up of hardgoods.  Our non-clothing items had twice the sell-through rate!  While hardgoods take more skill and are …
