Recently I came across a great new blog, "Goodwill Haunting". She highlights some of her great finds that have really been money makers for her. My husband and I have also come across some great finds too and we wanted to share them with you.
Buy It Now Price: $19.99 Sold: $19.99
Paid: .25 cents From Thrift Store
Ended: Sept 2011 Winner from Texas
Here is out first "Best Thing". It is a Hawaiian Shirt by "Paradise Found"The thrift store that we found this shirt has a "Fill A Bag for $5.00" every Wednesday and Friday. You can easily fill a grocery bag with at least 20 pieces of clothing. When you are just starting out trying to figure out what to sell on Ebay, you have to take a few risks. Paying a quarter for an item of clothing is definitely a small risk.
When we first listed this shirt, we put it at auction for $9.99 for seven days. It had a few hits but no serious bids. After researching what others were listing this particular brand for, we decided to put it in the Ebay store for $19.99 and the buyer pays shipping. It was pretty quiet for awhile. In fact, the same thrift store trip we also found a red "Paradise Found" Hawaiian Shirt .....
This particular brand of Hawaiian shirt was worn by Tom Selleck in Magnum P.I. Some of you may remember that T.V. show.
A little history about Paradise Found:
Time to hit the thrift stores again and look for more of these little beauties. Hope your thrifting adventures bring you much success!
