What did we sell in 2020 Week 5 (January 27-Feb 2)?
ALL THE THINGS on Mercari!
1. I sold a Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Coffee Mug via an offer.
This is one of our replenishable wholesale purchases and something I’d keep for myself if it doesn’t sell (but they do). Because I might have my own collection of Nightmare Before Christmas mugs.
VERDICT: Obviously I buy them, but wholesale is a completely different animal from picking and retail arbitrage. Your margins are much slimmer. Also, if you’re not an incorporated business you’d probably run into issues getting a wholesale account with anyone.
2. I sold Agacci Women’s Sheer Swirl Pantyhose via Best Offer.
This was picked up at a thrift store and listed in March 2019. There are plenty more of these in stock, so I’ll probably be selling them for a while.
VERDICT: Buy if you can get them cheap because they don’t sell for much.
3. I sold a Vintage Puma Indiana Pacers NBA Pullover Vented Jacket via a 10% off sale after slashing the price in half.
This was listed in November 2017 and was picked up at a thrift store. 17 months to sell for peanuts spells a dud.
VERDICT: Run Away!!!
I listed 3 unique items on eBay, which was recapped in the listing post for April 10th. Wednesday is my sourcing day so any listing on a Wednesday is a bonus. Thursday & Friday will be all day listing days.
Stay tuned to the What I Listed category to see the progress.
