I decided to create a store to sell my non-consignable stuff and posted one auction as a trial run. I read almost this whole thread to see what key words were used. Built a lighting set up for photos similar to Wes's. Hopefully they are good. If not, not sure how to make them better.
My first thrift shoe purchase were j&m chukkas at goodwill that I bought for $3.40. Cleaned, applied leather lotion and polished..
Posted on a Friday morning at $25 with a BIN of $60. They sold yesterday for $67.
I felt good about this for my first thrift sale, but it makes me wonder why the first guy to bid $60 didn't hit the BIN button and end the auction.?
Is this common for items to go for more than the BIN price?
My other past sales were concert tickets I couldn't use and a couple items that didn't fit after I bought on eBay and I just was getting rid of them.
I've designed a different template using garagesale than the one on this auction that goes live tomorrow. Appreciate constructive feedback.
The pictures look very good, but why only 6? You get 12 free and the other 6 literally would take you less than a minute to shoot, the more the better for the higher end stuff. When I see items without a ton of pictures I assume that the lister is trying to minimize something. Check out Brian's listing when I see this, I assume I have seen the whole shoe. I would think it also makes it harder for returns.
