Tony's Tip Of The Week
Pokemon Plush Toys
Pokemon Plush Toys
This one is pretty specialized but well worth the research. How many times have you gone into a thrift store and saw that huge bin of plush, yeah you know the one, it's so overloaded you can't even see all of them. Well there is a huge following for Pokemon plush toys. Some are worth near the $200 dollar range. I have provided a link below so you can see the recent sold items on these to give you an idea of which ones to look for. Good Hunting !
Average Used Ebay Sold Price Between $50 to $200
Our Week ending March 26th, 2016
This week I have very much empathized with Admiral David Farragut during the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay who said Damn the Torpedoes Full Steam Ahead ! When sales are down and all seems like a losing battle you just have to batten down the hatches and keep on GOING !!!
And by george that is exactly what we are doing. Yes our week sucked and yeah it could have been better but we are in this for the long haul baby and retreat is not an option ! We managed to list 62 items this week despite the gloom of pitiful sales.
No amazon sales this week, that was harsh. Oh yeah we did have a single etsy sale for $15.00 that is not recorded on my numbers above so that would bring us to $530.00 for the week. You know, this is not an exact science and there is no real proven formula that anyone can just repeat.
Anything you can think of has the potential for greatness on ebay given the right buyer and circumstances. At the end of the week we were ready to crawl into a bottle of Jim Beam but we didn't which is good since we don't drink. We even considered selling diapers at one point, lol.
I think the best course of action that we can do or that you can do is just keep going with what is working for you. We sell clothes on a regular albeit shaky basis so I think we just need to stick to that for now. I did sell one book last week on ebay of all places. I had it listed for less on Amazon for longer and it just would not sell there so that was weird.
After talking to Nicole from the College Fund thrifter last week and now after selling a book I am thinking about books again. Nicole was talking about selling cookbooks and I see those all the time so I gotta put those back on my radar.
I hope your week was far better than ours but even if it wasn't don't let the gloom get you, JUST KEEP ON LISTING !!!! One thing is for sure, the sun is still gonna rise and the earth is gonna keep going round and round so don't sweat it.
