Top eBay Sales: June 2016

June was a bit of a bummer when it came to our eBay sales.  We found some great new inventory and listed consistently but our sales were still in the toilet.  We did manage to scrape up some sales to share this month though so enjoy!

Item: Anarchic Leather Upper Vintage Gothic Punk Platfoom Oxfords – Men’s Sz 12
Paid Price: $10
Sale Price: $37
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: What can we say, ugly sells.    We planned to market these as clown shoes but a quick search showed that people actually wear these.  They ended up sitting in our storage unit for 6 months or so before selling.

Item: Vintage Blondo Faux Fur Ankle Boots  – Women’s 7.5 – 8
Paid Price: $2
Sale Price: $29.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​These shoes were terrible to have around.  With the slightest movement they would send clouds of fake hair everywhere.  We ended up putting them in a trash bag and setting them in the corner.  When they finally sold we just put the bag into a box and sent it on!

Item: Mountain Hardwear Two Tone Fleece Full Zip Jacket – Men’s Size Large
Paid Price: $8
Sale Price: $29.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​If you’ve read out list of 10 Outdoor Brands To Sell on eBay you’ll know that we love selling quality fleece jackets.  This one sold in less than a week.  Flips of this size are the bread and butter of eBay sales!

Item: Ted Baker Thick Full Zip Button Down Sweater Jacket – Size 7 Men’s XL
Paid Price: $10
Sale Price: $49.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​It was a wrench to let this sweater go.  Sometimes my wife and I simply walk down the aisles at thrift store and try to find things by feel.  This sweater was so thick and soft we had to check the brand!  I actually wore this sweater for a month or so before finally getting around to listing it on eBay.

Item: Pelle New York Milano Vintage Green Leather Bomber Jacket -Men’s Small 
Paid Price: $15
Sale Price: $69.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​Vintage leather sells well, colored leather sells well, combine the two and you have a knockout combination!  There were a few similar jackets on Etsy but none on eBay so we got to choose our price!

Item: Columbia Packable Rain Shell Jacket – Red & Black – Men’s Size XL
Paid Price: $4
Sale Price: $34.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​Packable jacket are always great sellers.  We typically avoid Columbia brand jackets as they don’t sell well but rain shells are something we’ll almost always pick up.

Item: Bulark Flame Resistant Protective Apparel Bomber Jacket – Men’s Size XL
Paid Price: $10
Sale Price: $49.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​There is a huge market for pre-owned construction and work attire.  Bulwark has been a particularly well selling brand that we find often.

Item: Eddie Bauer First Ascent 800 Fill Goose Down Packable Vest – Men’s XL – Logo
Paid Price: $23.11
Sale Price: $39.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​I actually bought this vest off of eBay for myself before finding the exact same vest in blue at a local thrift store.  I decided to keep the blue one so this on went back to eBay!  I took better pictures and sold on BIN rather than auction which meant I came out money ahead.

Item: Willis & Geiger Diaplex Heavy Winter Coat Sports Snow – Yellow – Men’s Size XL – RARE
Paid Price: $6
Sale Price: $154.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: ​This coat looked like a rumpled mess when we found it…which was great because someone would have certainly already snagged it otherwise!  Willis & Geiger pieces are rare finds but always sell well.  This one has some extensive staining so we felt better about sending it to auction and letting the market decide the price.  It ended with 2 bids.What have you sold this past month?
