What Sold On eBay
On Monday, April 8, 2019, I sold FIVE items on eBay. You read that right, five items sold. For a Monday that is back into normal sales quantity territory, which hasn’t happened very often in 2019.
Churchill Downs 2000 Kentucky Derby Alumni Weekend Coffee Mug
1. I sold a Churchill Downs 2000 Kentucky Derby Alumni Weekend Coffee Mug via a 30% off sale and a 1% Promoted Listing.
I picked up multiples of these at a thrift store last year and have been selling them on eBay and in our antique mall showcase. This is actually the last one that I have right now, but I’ll store the listing for when I come across more.
Being 90 minutes away from Louisville I run across Kentucky Derby items almost as frequently as I do Indy 500 & Brickyard 400 items. The standard glasses don’t sell as well as the mugs do, which would be a simple matter of supply and demand.
VERDICT: Buy! They might not sell right away, but they will sell. While the race is less than a month away, these have sold all year long.
97th Indianapolis Indy 500 Hat
2. I sold a 97th Indianapolis Indy 500 Hat via a 50% off sale and a 1% Promoted Listing.
This was picked up at either a garage sale or thrift store and was listed in September 2018. While I do sell some Indy 500 items all year long, it picks up closer to May.
In one of my other lives, I cover the races in a media capacity and will pick up anything Indy 500 related that I see. If it doesn’t sell I’ll enjoy it myself. Nothing beats The Month of May in Indy!
VERDICT: Buy, but plan on it selling around race time.
Vintage Boy Scouts of America Hat
3. I sold a Vintage Boy Scouts of America Hat via a 50% off sale.
This was picked up at a thrift store and listed in March 2019. A hat that sells in under a month is a good hat to pick up any time you see one.
St. John’s Bay Blue Jean Denim Shorts
4. I sold a St. John’s Bay Blue Jean Denim Shorts via a 10% off sale, which is on top of the 50% price drop I made last week.
I made a mistake with shipping on this one and if I’m lucky I might break even. I need to write a blog post about this.
This was picked up at a thrift store and listed in January 2018. This was back when I was just starting to get an idea of clothing brands and I now know that this is a bad one to resell.
You should be aware that St John’s Bay is a JCPenney brand. Not to be confused with St John which is a higher end brand of designer clothing.
VERDICT: DO NOT BUY THIS!
Bimini Bay Button Down Fishing Shirt
5. I sold a Bimini Bay Button Down Fishing Shirt via a 10% off sale, which is also on top of the 50% price drop I made last week.
Again, another small sale, but it’s gone and I probably made a few dollars profit on it.
This was picked up at a thrift store and listed in October 2017. 18-months for a few dollars isn’t worth it. Ever.
I see a trend of not selling things with “Bay” in the brand name on eBay.
VERDICT: DO NOT BUY THIS!
