Daily Sales: 5/26/2015


Sales haven’t been quite where we want over the past week or two so we put everything on 15% sale for 24 hours.  Several things sold during that time but unfortunately, they were things that probably would have sold anyway! haha
However, we’re not a fan of, “That sold so fast!  We should have asked for more!”  Unless we messed up and listed started something on a super low bid, we are just happy when things sell.


Item: Duluth Trading Windproof Fleece
Paid Price: $4.20
Sale Price: $27.62
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: This is such a nice jacket that I was almost sad that it sold!  Have you ever had an item that is nice that you’re bummed when you find out how little it’s worth?  To add insult to injury, this jacket sold when all our clothing was on 15% sale.  Oh well!  5 bucks is 5 bucks!  I’m just happy it’s sold, people who try to squeeze every penny out of something are never satisfied and often their item never sells.

Item: Handmade Patchwork Button Down
Paid Price: $3.50
Sale Price: $24.99
Shipping: Free!
Notes: As it was homemade this shirt had no size so I had to take careful measurements.  It took a little while to sell which was expected.  However, the secret to selling something like this is to market it right.  This shirt was marketed as “Patchwork Hippie Cruise-wear.”  Cruise-wear almost always sells well.

Item: Taupe Largo Sperry Top-Siders
Paid Price: $6.99
Sale Price: $25.49
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: Sperry’s in good condition do sell, however they usually end up sitting for months or you have to accept a low offer.  I was pleasantly surprised that these sold within a couple weeks of listing.  If you don’t have shoe forms….buy them.  Thrift them of course though…
