    Thanks! I'm actually worried that the buyer may come back on me.

    The mannequin was another guy though, I just loved the hilarious frugality. 2ghetto2fail lol

    I guys, I have the option of picking up NWOT brioni ties from a liquidated (? english is not my first language, the store went out of business) for about 30€ per tie. Should I buy a lot of them ? Is there profit to be made ? I think they go for about 50€ or more on ebay...

    Thougts?

    FWIW you should be able to make your money back on that (if I'm remembering correctly you paid $50?). I've sold two Armani by Vestimenta womens pieces - a blazer and a weird single button peak lapel overcoat kind of thing - one went for $50 and the other for $72. Put it up as a BIN-OBO and let it ride.

    e: Is it NWT? If so then you should definitely be able to get your investment back, and probably a bit more.

    I hate to admit to this, but at one time I had zero feedback on ebay.

    Never a blouse for me, but I have bought at least 3 women's blazers without paying attention

    I've definitely done it on $1.49 day at GW several times. Quick check, "wow, no holes or stains. how'd this Filson shirt make it to $1.49 day?!" Get it home and think, "why is the chest darted out like that?" Still have it if someone wants a size L plaid Filson shirt for gf/wife/mom/sister/friend for a present.

    Great price for yourself ($41 US), but after you factor in eBay and paypal fees (and taxes if you run a eBay business), it may or may not be worth your time. If they have no tags, definitely not. If they do have tags and the ties are attractive patterns, you could do well with them if you're patient.

    guys, what page are the photography tips on? right now my images are pretty awful.

    im only using a nexus 5 camera atm, but if i improve the set up (buy a mannequin, etc.) i should be OK.

    The damn search tool won;t give me anything, but it is discussed about once every two weeks or so. Still trying to find the big one from several months back.
