What Sold On eBay
From Friday through Wednesday, April 19-24, 2019, I sold eight items on eBay. Well, actually seven. One canceled because they didn’t read or look at photos first. Wednesday was actually our second official non-sales day of April. While sales are very slow right now, the items that we have sold in the last week have mostly been pretty good ones.
Antique Honey Amber Skull & Crossbones Poison Tinct. Iodine Bottle
I sold an Antique Honey Amber Skull & Crossbones Poison Tinct. Iodine Bottle via Best Offer and Promoted Listings.
This was listed on March 13, 2019, and purchased in an auction lot. Great quick sale.
Pendleton Women’s Malin Pants
I sold a Pendleton Women’s Malin Pants via Best Offer.
These were listed on August 8, 2018, and part of my brand new bulk clothing buys last year. Slow moving because I refuse to give away brand new clothing.
VERDICT: Personally I’m avoiding most clothing. If you like clothing they’ll eventually sell for a decent price.
New York Islanders Hat
I sold a New York Islanders Hat via Best Offer.
I have a few of these hats and they were listed on September 30, 2018, just in time for hockey season. Also part of my bulk clothing buys. Yet they are only selling now that it’s the second round of the playoffs and the Islanders are still playing. Go figure.
VERDICT: Buy if new. I love selling hats, but pro sports ones seem to be slow movers.
Small Classic Jewish Star of David Pendant Necklace
I sold a Small Classic Jewish Star of David Pendant Necklace via Best Offer.
This was stuck in an auction lot last year and I just got around to listing it on April 8th. Quick sale, but low dollar.
VERDICT: If you have them, list them. But if I were to buy them I’d have to get them cheap enough and be able to pick up a gross of them.
Ruidoso Downs New Mexico Rope Snapback Hat
I sold a Ruidoso Downs New Mexico Rope Snapback Hat at the full asking price.
This was picked up at a thrift store and listed last week. The hat has some cosmetic issues too which were noted in the listing. You can’t beat that.
VERDICT: Buy. Vintage hats are hot right now.
Slipknot Summers Last Stand Prepare for Hell 2015 Tour T-shirt
I sold a Slipknot Summers Last Stand Prepare for Hell 2015 Tour T-shirt via Best Offer.
This was picked up at a thrift store and listed in September 2017. I’m glad it’s gone.
VERDICT: Don’t Buy. More clothing and a long tail item. Stick to older concert tees if you’re going to buy them.
Tobin Stamped Embroidery Kit 17″ x 30″ Kitchen Towels
I sold yet another Tobin Kittens Kitchen Towels Stamped Embroidery Kit via Best Offer.
VERDICT: After months of being listed they’re finally selling.
2019 Q2W3 (Week 16) Sales Recap
Quantity wise we had our worst week in over a month. Overall #14 out of 16. Yes, it was that bad.
Dollar wise it ranks #4 out of 16. If only one number is going to be higher that’s the one I want it to be.
Weekly Listing Challenge for 2019 Q2 W4 (Week 17)
To avoid burnout I know that the 200-300 item listing weeks cannot be a regular thing. Ideally, I need to be at around 75-100 listings a week, but until I get the “death pile” under control I do need to push it a little.
That said, the magic number is 175 this week, with around 100 of those items be cross postings or moves.
