A few recent finds...

Start with something I bought for myself. It was an "ethrift," though it was €40, so not that thrifty. First, the picture on the listing.




The measurements were spot on and it fits like a dream.

Fendi Parfums umbrella. Probably not worth much, but I wasn't going to walk by it.

I don't recognize this tag, does anyone? Is it just a generic "Made in England" tag?

I've picked up some ugly shoes, but these may take the cake. The woman thought I was joking when I brought them to the register and was going to put them back. Versace guys, do people actually collect something like this?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Vintage Nike and it has that "never-been-washed" tag look. Doubt it's a big collector item, but thought it was neat that it was made in the UK.

Cheers!

Sorry to go off topic, but if I print shipping labels through ebays site and I wanna use this printer, is there any kind of formatting I need to do first to get hem to print right, or does it just do it correctly as is?

That moment when you realise you are the same size as @HansderHund and you're in direct competition for European e-thrifts.

Don't worry, there are a couple of others that are in that size range as well. Think of it as glass half full...when one wants to dump something from their wardrobe, you know who can take first swing. happy.gif

Decided to venture out, worth picking up to flip?

Question: It looks like the label that these print out would be really small and (in my head) unable to print everything you'd need on a shipping label. Do you have to set something up in your computer or eBay settings to print address + bar code?

How long is a piece of string? What's your feeling about it when you think long and hard about it? If you're new to this game there's a lot of reading you can do beforehand such as reading the two huge thrift threads in their entirety. It might seem daunting but my god does it give you an idea of labels, what sells, tips and hints. If you're serious about doing this for a money making sideline then there's going to be a learning curve. That's a really decent start. Me? I used to push my daughter around the block twice every day as she wouldn't sleep. This happened for weeks and weeks and I would be glued to my phone in all weathers reading the threads.

Even if you bought it and tried to flip it you will have gone through an important stage and got a feel for the market. I'm no expert. Hopefully I've helped you a little. When I look at your pictures my internal thrift monologue is going...

Old label. Looks dated. Probably will take a while to flip. Pants probably have pleats. Maybe piss stains. Not a particularly desirable pattern. What's the price? Any moth holes? What's the cut like? Probably boxy as it's old fashioned although 2-button is a slight bonus. Dual vented? Probably not, so another negative there...not worth my time...

I won't bore you with more rambling. If it's cheap enough and in good condition why not pull the trigger, get it on eBay and watch. Welcome to #thriftlife (cringe).

I have the same printer and i love it. Install the software and set up your ebay shipping preference to use this printer and you should be fine.

 

Buy these generic labels at the same time cause you will need em and they are cheaper then buying Dymo inflated crap
