Crom, but that's an awesome haul, Wes. And only half of one day?
That tux should be worn be an executioner.

I came across these Tom James executive collection shirts and they still had the pins in them, brand new. 2 barrel and 1 french cuff. I had never heard of the brand, but I am in need of some new white shirts and they ended up fitting me like a fuggin' glove, so I am keeping these. I think they retail around $150 a piece.

JOE? That's the JC Penney's suit. All that stuff is licensed and bad? However, that Valentino DB is pretty cool.

Would be nearly impossible to lose money on for what I paid. I don't foresee much of a problem moving most of that on ebay.

And you're convinced that the 'things you would not have bought' simply will not sell on ebay, at any price?

Other than the dior ties, you can probably sell everything. Just not for margins that I would be happy with. I think some Valentino stuff may actually be worth money, but since I don't know the difference, I pass on it all. And actually, the burberrys jacket/pants you can probably trick someone into buying, but it's not the "good" stuff.

My main concern right now is selling accurately described quantity and acquiring some feedback. If I began by only listing the highest quality items, I have a feeling it would take me far too long to accumulate enough feedback to get things moving. I'd also suspect that there are plenty of buyers out there that will make no distinction between various lines within a brand - and are only looking for a name. However, I take my own opinion here with a grain of salt since I am new to this. As far as margins, it's going to vary between items, but I feel comfortable with what I paid. None of these were purchased from boutique thrift stores, all were from GW's, so it was a cheap haul.

I hope this doesn't set off another purity sub-thread, because that's not what I'm after. I think the point is that there isn't a need to post every single item you're going to sell on ebay. Compare, for example, what BP posts versus his ebay listings. Same for Cap. Post what is awesome, what you're really excited about, stuff (like RG anything) that will sell and is fun to look at even though we can't imagine why anyone would wear it, and we'll all chime in. Ultimately, post whatever you want to - but if you take up that much screen space/bandwidth with J.C. Penny licensed stuff, don't be surprised if people complain a little.

That's a lot of effort to essentially pay for feedback. And I'm not sure that the return on investment is there either. There's no feedback minimum to become a powerseller by the way, just a certain number of transactions/dollar sales.

I have a feeling this is very true.

The great thing about buying this stuff is you can see how well it does/doesn't sell and adjust your future purchases accordingly. When in doubt, use the ebay app on your phone in store. Take note of percent items sold, not just the final hammer price on the 1 in 100 that did sell.

Also, if you haven't already, subscribe to this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/309281/buying-and-selling-on-ebay-tips-tricks-problems-questions
Much better place for ebay talk.

^ Thanks VLSI. Also, I noticed you were in Raleigh (or at least "protecting" that territory). I don't know about the thrifting down there, never did much, but I sure do miss Cooper's BBQ downtown. Mmm.

Haven't been there, I just have to go to Raleigh for any decent thrift stores. I told you where I was when I PM'ed about the BB store a few weeks back smile.gif
