Here are some rules I follow as someone who does it as a hobby.
1. "Know what you dont know"
Study eBay / Saks for what sells and for how much. Dont be limited to this thread.
2. Know your avg tranaction cost/profit .
I want to make about 30-40$ per item. So, I will not buy anything that I cant sell for that much. Rember your profit is made in the purchase. (12.99 No, No)
3. Dont shop Labels
Yes, that DB 6X1 non-vented Armani looks nice... but will it sell? Holding costs should be taken into consideration.
Here are somethings I will not buy (for reselling) because eBay is flooded with them or not worth my time.
BB shits (except what chet metioned)
Ties (except Kiton, Tom Ford, Hermes)
Made in Italy tags ( if you dont know the maker pass)
Tags with Bespoke or Savile Row
Custom made shirts (Ascot Chang & Tom James)
Dirty Items (pee stains, yellow collar ect...)
Also, please do not list how much or where you purchased your items for.
Prices mysteriously go up on items at thrift stores when listed in this thread.
