I would vote no. Never seen Incotex made outside of Europe. Tags are made to look like Incotex.

@Letric I agree. Is that sold already? Just checked your listings for the size and didn't see it anywhere.

Hi All,

 

I'm getting ready to start listing some of my higher priced items. Generally my items are sub 100.

 

Are there any good guidelines to follow when selling things for $400 or $1000? These are clothing items.

 

Generally I fold nicely, add tissue paper, clear poly bag, and box/bag the item depending on weight.

 

What are other things to do to make for a good buyer experience and also to minimize any risk. At a certain point to you write an extra thank you note, throw in a free tie or two, anything else to make the sale a success all around?

 

Thanks for any tips anyone has. I'd love to get some of these high ticket items sold by the end of the year. Still working to reach my financial goals for the business, I just might make it with that Loro Piana...

Usually on items priced that high (ie >$500) I include free shipping/insurance - buyers seem to prefer that so it doesn't feel like a nickle and dime game since they're already spending good money to begin with. Generally I add a hand written thank you note for purchases beyond a certain dollar amount, depending on item (for example, had a tie go for $88 recently - definitely wrote a thank you there), or if a buyer is purchasing several items (or has a past track record of purchasing from me repeatedly).

What, no picture?

 

I wouldn't use HOT, unless you know people search that term. Better to put the character spaces into something more searchable:  So, sight unseen:

 

Vtg % mohair Highlands EXTRA hairy plush furry fluffy rainbow plaid scarf Scotland 60 x 12

 

Now, mohair (lopi wool, cashmere, angora) all make me itch so bad, I can't stand them.  As far as I'm concerned, one would HAVE to have a fetish or otherwise not perceive the million little sensations as unpleasant to wear any of them. For those who perceive that as pleasant, the more emphasis you throw on that aspect, the better.

 

I find sweaters sell better than scarves. I picked up an Icelandic lopi wool cardigan yesterday, handknit in Iceland. Icelandic sheep have a double coat: the dense underwool, and the long guard hairs, called 'tog'.  The tog creates a nimbus around the sweater, a dead air space (and if you don't believe me, try shaving one of your legs to the knee, and compare how much warmer the other feels when you just walk around) - so Lopi is purchased primarily for its warmth.Vintage mohair out of  Scotland was surely sold for its warmth for the same reason.  Now, what with the high-tech fibers and fabrics we have, one can stay warm without the hairiness, and I think *most* buyers of these fibers buy them for reasons other than warmth.  Except Lopi - I'm pretty sure that's nostalgia and tradition.  But the title tags will be the same.

Having had shaved legs in the past for both swimming and triathlon, I can endorse the point made by @Chotii...
