I buy most of my items for resale at Off 5th Avenue (Saks Fifth's outlet store) and Neiman-Marcus Last Call (NM's outlet store) here in Dallas. My best deal was a bulk buy from a guy on eBay of 25 Dunhill shirts. I asked if he had more and he said yes he had about 82 more assorted Dunhill clothing items. I negotiated a fixed price for each item, and bought them all. I easily doubled and tripled my money on those by selling half on eBay and half to an eBay buyer in California who inquired with me if *I* had more Dunhill, and he paid me three to four times what I paid for the items from the original guy. It was great fun and profit. I focus on NWT men's clothes that are only manufactured in European countries. That's my chosen niche. There may be better, more lucrative niches, but I'm happy with mine. By the way, always keep track of your returns on certain brands or specific types of items. Know what you can reasonably sell an item for BEFORE you buy it. For example, I'll go into Neiman-Marcus Last Call and see a Brioni dress shirt marked all the way down to $53. I *know* I can put that out on eBay and sell it for at least twice that much. And, in fact, that's what I just did this week -- the Brioni shirt sold for $123. Here's how I calculate my return: My Cost = $53 Sale Price = $123 ROI = 100 times (Sale Price - My Cost) divided by (My Cost) So, ROI = 100 * ($123 - $53) / $53 Or, ROI = 132% Of course, with fuel costs, eBay charges, PayPal charges, etc. my net ROI is less, but you get the general idea. But, note that I put $53 at risk and more than doubled my money. But, since I knew that I could reasonably get more than $53 for the particular Brioni shirt, it wasn't that much risk at all. Don't always believe that "to get a bigger reward, you have to take a greater risk". That's a bunch of bull, if you know what you are doing. In fact, I view risk as this: Risk = 1 / Knowledge The more you know about a particular investment or business, the less risk you are taking. It's when you don't know what you are doing that you are taking the biggest, most foolish risks and you will lose your shirt (no pun intended). When you start out, spend some time just watching auctions on eBay and noting on a pad of paper what brands and types of clothing are selling for. If you look closely on the search results pages, there is a "Completed Items" link that will show you what price similar items recently sold for. I watched NWT Zanella 100% wool slacks consistently selling for over $100. I made a note of that. When I stumbled across a whole rack of Zanellas for $49.95 each at Off Fifth Avenue, I bought them all, lock, stock and barrel, and gleefully more than doubled my money on all of them. Just watch the marketplace and see what it will bear for certain items. Make notes. Then, wait and watch for prices at your local outlet stores or consignment stores to fall to a very compelling level. Swoop in, buy 'em, and flip 'em. Then, do it again. Remember: if you double a $1 bill 20 times, you'll have more than $1 million. Try it. In my opinion, if you don't think you can at least double your money on a particular item, pass on that item. Your money is better invested elsewhere. After a while, you'll begin to see that, while doubling your money is nice, it all becomes a volume game to make it all worthwhile. Getting enough supply of good clothing at compellingly low prices becomes the biggest problem to solve. That's a problem I struggle with every week. Good luck to you. Logan.
