Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Whether you’re just thinking about getting started on eBay or have been selling for years, you’ll find useful information, inspiration, and a way to connect with fellow eBay sellers.
I first got started on eBay in the fall of 2013. I was about to send in an Anthropologie dress that I no longer wore to an online consignment shop. I knew I’d only get 8 bucks or so for it, but that’s better than letting it hang in my closet forever, right? Before I bagged the dress up, I clicked on over to eBay and saw that I could get way more than that by selling it myself. A few moments later, I had the dress listed on a 7-day $0.99 auction (which–really–I don’t recommend, but I didn’t know what I was doing!). In the final moments of the auction, the price shot up from about $10 to about $35. I was shocked! After that, I went to the thrift store and bought a few items that I thought I could flip for a profit. (I still get warm fuzzies when I think about the Eileen Fisher organic cotton hoodie that sold for almost $80. Talk about beginners’ luck!) Since then, I’ve learned more and refined my strategy, but the basics are the same: Buy nice clothing at the thrift store for cheap and sell it on eBay for a profit.
Not to toot my own horn too much, but I’ve been doing pretty well. I am both a Powerseller and Top Rated Seller. You can check out my monthly income reports here. After reinvesting in more inventory, supplies, and equipment, I’ve used the money to pay down debt, save for a down-payment on a house, and splurge on fun stuff every now and then. I do this all while being a stay-at-home mom to mine and my husband’s two girls, which leaves me only a handful of hours per week to work on eBay.
I really enjoy what I do, and I would love to help you all when you need it, too! Please feel free to leave comments on the blog and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
