6K+ items for less than $1 ea.
You'd probably have to rent storage space for a time.
It certainly isn't high end stuff but you could lot much of it up perhaps?

Seems like it would cut the hours you would need to spend in the thrift shops. You could full time list for like 3 months...

Tempting, but I need to get more experienced with eBay first. :-)

Absolutely not. I skimmed the list of brands and wouldn't buy any of them at any price (unless the RL was PL or BL, which I'm sure it is not). If you want to set up a booth at the local flea market, sure. For selling on ebay, no way.

Just had an interesting ebay experience. I sold an item about 2 months ago. About 5 weeks later I got very positive feedback on the item. Today I got it back from the post office, it was never picked up.  :puzzled:  Weird!!!! 

 

Several years ago I had a similar experience but this time the buyer did not post feedback. Item came back 2 months later, never heard from the buyer.

Has anybody have similar experiences?

lol yes.  My most recent was a few weeks back, I had an international purchase arrive back to me.  Unclaimed item.  Buyer never reached out, never heard a thing.  So resold it.

 

I've had more than a few of other crazy stories like this as well.

Only the occasional buyer who leaves positive feedback before I even ship the thing. And some time-travel mishaps, but that's for a different thread.

Have a German buyer who bought some shoes and doesn't want them delivered for a couple weeks...how do i wait to ship without taking a defect?  or am I better off just sending and hope it takes a couple weeks to get to Germany?

Ask them not to pay until ready for you to ship the item. Had a similar issue a couple years ago and ebay customer support said they couldn't do anything to help me.

Going down a slippery slope.  It was about 1 1/2 years ago I was posting clothes using my phone and the ebay mobile app on my bed, now it's:

I think it's an 11, the pimp I bought it off so he could make bail said it was his nicest jacket...he had 23 girls locking down the upper east side corners so I value his opinion as a man who knows his way around the ladies.

Wtf. I would ignore and block. You deal with enough wackadoos on ebay, no need to get into a discussion with one.

Welp he just won and paid. He's got 100% feedback on ~700 transactions. I'm not too worried. I almost feel bad for him though. Sounds like English isn't his first language and he's just looking for how to start dressing better or something. He did just buy a black suit coat orphan from me though so...
