heh, I still have a pair of those marc jacobs vans slip-ons lying around somewhere. also a pair of beat to shit sperry x modern amusement vans-like slip-ons from the same time period

Another interesting read. Always enjoy the comments as well, particularly when the author engages in them. @gettoasty Matrix reference made me lol.

on that note.  @nahneun cast youru doubts aside

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
having some doubts of my own now.    sometimes letting something sit in the back of your closet for a while allows you to look at it from a new perspective when you finally bring it back out.

you say, to the guy about to go play soccer:p

 

 

On another note, does anyone have experience with ordering from Bring on Rakuten?  This is the first seller I've dealt with that hasn't had prompt (or any) communication so far.  Noticed tonight that my card got charged 6 days later without ever having received the standard shipping quote emails, and no tracking info as of yet...

that's a tempting strategy, but I see a few problems:

 

1. it assumes any potential buyer is going to see the auction within the week or whatever timeframe you specify. I've had auctions where they get relisted 3-4 times with no bids but then all of a sudden someone snatches it up. so starting at a penny and only running it for one week runs the risk that it ends super low (see #2) as opposed to it not selling one week, but then fetching a decent price later on.

 

2. it assumes that everything will get bid up to at least enough that it isn't a complete waste of time to deal with. for instance, if something gets only one bid and ends for literally one cent plus shipping then just the amount of time you spend shipping it is costing you more that what you are getting.

 

3. it takes away your ability to suggest a value. I find sometimes overpricing things but accepting offers yields a higher price. For instance, I've priced things at around $60 and had offers of $45 by people who think they are getting a good deal when similar items at auction only get bid up to $20-30.

 

I would say if you're dealing with something in relatively decent/high demand where you know the bids will exceed at least $100, then your strategy is a good one. For anything less than that, maybe not. I've stopped bothering with sub-$100 stuff for the most part since it's frankly easier and less time consuming to just donate those items.

I gave up on selling everything myself and started sending clothes to a consignor. The convenience is awesome.

nicelynice only sells the highest quality, elusively rare, coveted fashiunz. Whatever he's selling, you want it, cause it's the good stuff.

online consignor, or a local shop? convenience is tempting but I imagine the % cut is decent
