Top eBay Sales: February 2016

Another month of mediocre sales.  We hit our listing goals throughout the month but it didn’t quite do the trick in getting our sales up.  We did however have a few awesome sales that saved us from having a total abysmal month.  So of course, we had to bring you our top eBay sales as a blog post!  Check these out and be sure to put them on your BOLO List!

Item: Disney 50th Anniversary Leather Jacket With Patches – Men’s Size XXL
Paid Price: $25.00
Sale Price: 299.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: We found this beauty at a local mom and pop thrift store.  Luckily they didn’t know what they had and we picked it up for a song!  It had anniversary patches from every decade!  We though we high balled it a little but judging by how fast it sold we might have under priced it!

Item: Arcteryx Women’s Hooded Linen Pullover – Gray – Size Medium
Paid Price: $4.99
Sale Price: $34.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
If you even see from Arc’teryx, grab it!  It’s a high end outdoor brand and goes for great prices on eBay.  We’ve sold Arc’tery jackets with holes, with the zippers broken, etc.  This one was in good shape (not to mention super cute) so it sold within a week.  Just beware of Arctyx, the imitator brand….

Item: Holly Shaped Scrapbooking Paper Hole Punch
Paid Price: $0.40
Sale Price: $9.89
Shipping: Freeeee!
Notes: 
I think we’re finally almost out of these!  We bought about 40 of these from Savers for 12 bucks and listed them in October.  To our surprise…no one wanted them for Christmas.  In January however people started buying them right and left!  We sell several a week.  Flips like this are awesome.  We list it,  forget it, and make about $5 per sale.

Item: Vintage Hugo Boss 100% Wool 3 Piece Suit – 46R 36 x 30.5
Paid Price: $10.00
Sale Price: $99.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
We looked all over this suit for a size and coudn’t find it!  Eventually we made a guess based on our measurements and listed it.  Apparently the buyer didn’t have any problem finding the size because we got a message as soon as they opened it letting us know how off we were!  They requested a return but never followed through an shipped it.  No feedback though…. hmmm….

Item: ION Audio VCR 2 PC USB Converter Convert VHS Tape to Computer – Open Box
Paid Price: $6.00
Sale Price: $99.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
This one was snatched out from under the nose of another reseller.  His wife was running around in clothes and he was standing by electronics looking a little lost.  When I started perusing the section he watched me like a hawk.  There were two things in boxes and when I grabbed this one he snagged the other and put it in his cart!  Too bad for him it wasn’t worth beans.  This one on the other hand was the perfect mix of old and discontinued but not obsolete.  Somebody really wanted it though because they paid an arm and a leg to ship it overseas!

Item: Kuhl Women’s Floral Down Jacket – Blue – Size Small
Paid Price: $8.00
Sale Price: $59.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
This was a no-brainer buy and an easy flip.  Down is incredibly popular right now and this is a current model from Kuhl, a great outdoor brand.  We actually found this in another state while visiting my wife’s family and took pictures of it on the kitchen floor (hence not mannequin).  It sold by the time we got home!

Item: Authentic Lacoste Polo – Men’s Size 6 Large – Baby Blue
Paid Price: $4.99
Sale Price: $34.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
We can find at least one Lacoste polo almost every time we thrift.  We usually find that people try them on, find they’re sized oddly, and leave them in go-backs.  We’ve found half a dozen of them on the rack outside the dressing rooms.  Check there first!

Item: Montbell 800 Fill Power Packable Down Ultra Light Jacket – Men’s Size Large
Paid Price: $11.99
Sale Price: $89.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
Another no-brainer.  Current model from a well known outdoor brand.  Sold to Japan within a couple of days.

Item: Sol 100% Baby Alpaca Men’s Half Zip Cable Knit Sweater – Brown – Men’s XL – Peru
Paid Price: 
Sale Price: 
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
We’re not sure who came up with the idea of knitting a sweater from Baby Alpaca but it sure is nice and soft!  If you see anything from exotic fur or hair, it’s safe to assume it’s valuable.  We’ve sold alligator skin hats, camelhair jackets, ostrich leather shoes, and more!

Item: SunPak Auto 622 Pro-System Lot – SH-1 CG-10 NC 510 Treadlite II
Paid Price: 
Sale Price: 
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
This was one of those random boxes you find at a thrift store that you can’t really look through because the person who donated it covered the entire top with tape… We took out the garbage, tested it as well as we could, and listed it for less than it was worth.  All of these together let it sell within a week and give us rent money! 😀

Item: Vintage Team Suzuki Motocross Flat Track Jersey – Men’s Large
Paid Price: $4.00
Sale Price: $49.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes:
 We weren’t quite sure what this was but since it was niche vintage (motorcycles) we figured there was somebody out there who would pay dearly to have it.  It took about 4 months for that person to come along but the jersey rested comfortably in our storage unit during the interim…

Item: Womens Size 7 Ugg Deanna Boot Black Suede And Leather Strappy Buckle 1001791
Paid Price: 
Sale Price: 
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes:
 Our best tip for from this sale is this: find the model name of things you sell.  These boots sold quickly because we put the time into  learning the name: Deanna.  Buyers often find what they want on a store or website and then search for the same boots on eBay.  If you simply have they listed as “Black UGG Boots” most buyers won’t have the patience to sift through and find them.

Item: Willis & Geiger Hemmingway Safari Jacket – Olive Green – Men’s Size Large
Paid Price: $10
Sale Price: $199.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: 
Willis & Geiger is a maker of high end outdoor goods….at least they were.  They outfitted some of the most iconic expeditions in American history before selling out.  As such, their clothing items are now highly sought after and very valuable.  We priced this one in the middle of the pack and it took about 2 months to sell.
