Top eBay Sales: July 2016

Sales are starting to pick up!  The good thing about running an eBay blog is that it keeps up accountable!  Even though the overall number of sales we down for us, we have some really great BOLOs to bring you guys this month!

Item: Rare Peter Pan 1911 Edition Book  – Peter & Wendy By James Matthew Barrie
Paid Price: $2
Sale Price: ​$199.95
Shipping: ​Buyer Paid
Notes: The sale of this book was adding insult to injury.  We really wanted to keep it, but ended up pricing it low because we needed the money at the end of the month.  Oh medical bills.  We actually found this book with a dozen other antique books, presumably donated by the same person.  We ended up buying 8 of them so stay tuned for the coming months….

tem: Boy Scout Official Switchback Uniform Pants – Men’s XXXL 50 x 32
Paid Price: $8
Sale Price: $39.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​This model of pants is actually discontinued by the Boy Scouts.  We found them on extreme closeout and bought 10 pair for $8 a pair.  They’ve been selling consistently for us all summer and we wish we would have purchased more!

Item: Vintage Harley Davidson Sonora Embroidered Black Leather Boots – Women’s Size 9
Paid Price: $10
Sale Price: $49.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​Harley Davidson is on of our favorite brands to resell!  We’ve seen vintage Harley shirts go for nearly $500!  These boots weren’t quite that exciting but they still sold for us in less than a week.

Item: Vintage 1960’s  Nissan Skyline SKP-12 Dynamic Stereo Headphones Cream
Paid Price: $1.50
Sale Price: $79.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​We weren’t sure about these or their value…but the price was right and they came in the original box.  There was only one similar pair on eBay so we undercut their price by $5 and let them sit.  They took about 5 months to sell.  We hope their new owner has a use for them!

Item: Ecco  Gore-Tex TRACK II – Waterproof Black Leather Boots – Men’s Size 11.5
Paid Price: $6
Sale Price: $59.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​If you ever see the name “Gore-Tex” on a pair of shoes (or anything else for that matter) be sure to look it up.  Ecco is a fabulous show brand and coupled with the Gore Tex construction we knew these would sell fast.

Item: Military Issue Black Leather Combat Boots – Men’s Size 10.5 Wide
Paid Price: $12
Sale Price: $49.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​Thrift stores love to price military gear high, but if you have a coupon or can find them on half off days, combat boots are great sellers.  This pair sold particularly fast because they were “Wide,” a difficult thing to find.  If you can find a military branch or era for the boots they’ll sell better.

Item: Cole Haan Howland Penny Loafers – Crocodile Print Calf Leather – Men’s 12 M
Paid Price: $10
Sale Price: $49.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​Cole Haan?  Penny Loafers?  Unusual leather?  Sign us up!  Anything unusual by Cole Haan sells very well.  We typically ignore their generic shoes but ones like these we can’t pass up.

Item: Vintage Susan Vale Hand Knitted Mohair Cardigan – Sheep Farm Scene 
Paid Price: $8
Sale Price: $49.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​This huge wooly sweater was one of my wife’s favorite finds of late.  It was so interesting that we almost stalked the buyer on Facebook to see who in the world would wear it…  The words “hand-knit, mohair, and wool” were all triggers as was the awesome subject material.

Item: Boreal Laser Rock Climbing Shoes – Fusion S-2 Rubber – Women’s Size 7
Paid Price: $6
Sale Price: $39.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​If you don’t know what they are, climbing shoes are easy to pass by.  They’re almost always squished and worn out looking.  We stuffed some newspaper in these and they sold within a month.  Brand is very very important so be sure to put in your due diligence.What did you sell this month?
