I'm Trying

I've been trying to post an update for weeks. First, we had Hurricane Matthew then Blogger decided to make my life miserable. I may have to find a new platform to use for my blog. Blogger is just impossible to use without the app.

I'm going to keep this short just in case I have problems. Here are items I've sold recently:

Hawaii Casuals by Stan Hicks 1950's Hawaiian Outfit 

                  Cost: $2.00.                    Sold: $240.00

This outfit was my best flip yet! I'd never heard of the brand before buying it but it looked old. I sold it to someone in Los Angeles so maybe it will be in a movie?
My advice: if you find an item you believe is old (like 70's and older) but have never heard of the brand, take a chance. People love vintage items and you may hit the jackpot on a valuable brand like I did.

Mo Betta Country Western Shirt 

Sold: $37.99

I have found and sold two Mo Betta shirts this month. $37.99 and $39.99 were the selling prices. They sell quickly as well. I'd look out for Mo Betta shirts! 

Diesel Safado Men's Jeans 

Sold: $41.99 

Michael Simon Womens Sweater 

Sold: $19.99

I have no clue why Michael Simon items are valuable. They are pretty ugly to me. I actually agreed to sell this sweater for a lower price, since the buyer agreed to buy other items. You can expect to make more off Michael Simon items. 

LL Bean Men's Heavy Jacket 

Sold: $40.00 

Sorry if the format is messed up or looks funky. I'm typing or should I say pecking this on my tablet.

Hurricane Matthew

Hello everybody! Sorry I have not written recently. Hurricane Matthew made a quick appearance on Thursday-Friday and that threw me off. Yet; IOS 10 is the real culprit. I updated my phone last week and the Blogger app won't work anymore. Anybody else have this issue? I'm trying to work on it. Thanks for your patience.

Been A Minute.......

It's been a minute since I've posted anything. As you can tell from the picture, life has been a little crazy. September was a strange month. It felt like I didn't hardly sell anything but I sold 81 items. Considering I always have 220 or less items listed, that's pretty good. My turnover is really high. August to January is the best part of the year on eBay and I'm excited for it. My profit from 2016 topped my profit from 2015 and we still have 3 more months! I'm saving for Buckeye's Heartworm treatment, my brother's birthday and wedding gifts and my Christmas shopping. I've almost got Buckeye's money saved. It's a work in progress. How was September for you? 

Here are some of my sales from the last week or so: 

       Miami Hurricanes Football Jersey 
                    Sold: $24.99 

       Paul Stuart Mens Corduroy Shirt 

                    Sold: $24.99 

       Hudson Skinny Ankle Black Jeans

                    Sold: $22.99 

         Givenchy Men's Wool Blazer 

                    Sold: $20.00

       Polo Sport Vintage Bear Polo Shirt 

                    Sold: $26.00 

If you haven't already check out my Polo Sport post. It's a great brand to buy and sell. 

       Ermenegildo Zegna 4 Tie Lot 

                    Sold: $27.99 

       Wrangler Vintage Western Shirt 

                    Sold: $35.00

                    Sold: $35.99 

         Minnetonka Men's Suede Vest 

                    Sold: $31.99 

* I have no clue why but I've been finding tons of quality Western items lately. Now I'm the least Western person you'd ever meet, but I'm going with it. If I'm finding good Western items, then I sell Western items. We don't get to be choosy in this profession. I recommend buying these Western items: 
Shirt with Pearl snaps, Wrangler shirts with Native American designs, chaps, and anything leather. * 

       Wallabies Australian Rugby Shirt 

                    Sold: $64.99 

I had never heard of Wallabies but the shirt appeared to be very high quality. I'll buy any Wallabies items in the future! 

          Kobe Bryant Vintage T-Shirt 

                    Sold: $19.99 

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and Peyton Manning retired this year. If you find an older item from each player buy it. Fans are looking for items from those players. 

      Harley Davidson Button Down Shirt 

                    Sold: $34.99 

Can't go wrong with Harley Davidson. Ever! 

         Tommy Hilfiger 90's T-Shirts 

                    Sold: $21.99 

I've sold 5 items already today. October is going to be a great month for all of us! Just pray it drops below 90 degrees for us sometime this month.
