Ariat is a western style company founded in 1990 that focuses on making high quality footwear and apparel for the world's top equestrian athletes. Ariat is committed to people who ride, ranch and work outdoors. It is a high quality American company, which creates high performance boots and apparel for athletes.
In terms of selling on eBay, boots are at the top of the Ariat food chain. Pre-owned Ariat boots can sell for well over $100 on eBay. Jackets, shirts and basically any Ariat item will sell on eBay. Here are some pre-owned completed Ariat listings:
Personally, I have bought and sold three Ariat items. I'd advise you to buy any reasonably priced Ariat item. Shirts for $5.00 or less is a great buy. Jackets $6.00 and under is also a great buy. I've never found a pair of Ariat boots, but would probably spend at least $25.00 on a pair in good condition. I haven't found a high priced Ariat item YET, but I'm always on the lookout. Here is what I have sold:
Ariat Men's 2XL button down shirt
Ariat Women's Fleece Small Jacket
Ariat Women's Pearl Snap Shirt
Arc'Teryx is an outdoor clothing and sporting good company founded in Canada in 1989. Arc'Teryx refers to the Archaeopteryx, the earliest known bird. The logo is based on the "Berlin Specimen" of the bird, the most complete skeleton to date (I know this isn't important to flipping, but I found it interesting. I'm a nerd). Arc'Teryx creates apparel associated with climbing, skiing, snowboarding, backpacking and hiking. They even produce equipment for the military and law enforcement; including the United States Marine Corps.
When flipping, ALWAYS look for Arc'Teryx jackets. Pre-owned jackets can sell for over $200 on eBay. Shirts and pants sell well also. Honestly, I'd buy any Arc'Teryx item unless the condition was awful or price is crazy. Here are a few pre-owned completed Arc'Teryx listings:
Personally, I've only bought and sold one Arc'Teryx item. Actually, I sold it yesterday after being listed for three weeks. Praying I find more soon!
Arc'Teryx and Ariat are almost automatic buys for me. The only way I wouldn't buy an item is if it's in horrible condition or if the price isn't right. Luckily, most thrift stores don't know either brand; so you can usually find the items cheap.
Has anyone sold Arc'Teryx or Ariat items? How have you done with them?
