Ebay Update 02-03-16

 

Wow, so, it’s been two months since I started this adventure.

We’ll start with what’s sold:

  • Lootcrate Tee-shirt
  • Precious Moments Boy with Manger
  • Vintage GI Joe accessories
  • Vintage Pebbles Doll
  • Vintage Military Action Figure
  • Precious Moments Blessed are the Peacemakers
  • Battlestar Galactica Range Sheets

Not bad, all in all. My friend who’s in on this little adventure has been helping me create listings. She listed a whole bunch of things for me. I went on a photo and descriptions binge to fill up our shared spreadsheet. I think the system’s starting to work. We’re still working out the kinks, but it’s working.

One of the above was sent to Greece. Seriously, set the shipping to calculated and sell world-wide. All you need to do is fill out a customs form which isn’t hard at all. The buyer was happy and I was happy too.

The Vintage Military Action Figure wasn’t actually a GI Joe. *sighs* I thought it might be, but a recognized expert (I recognized the email) dropped by to let me know that it wasn’t a GI Joe, so I dropped the price and it sold quickly. There’s always that little suspicion that you’ve been ripped on something like that, but I’d rather take that chance than to have a pissed off customer.

The Precious Moments are being sold for a friend and the supply is dwindling, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t enough stuff for the store. DAMN but there’s a lot of stuff left to sell. I’m clearing out a bunch of Lootcrate stuff right now because it’s stuff I didn’t really care about. And it lets me keep the pieces I want to keep.

The shop will be on vacation mode for a week while I’m unavailable this month, so we’ll see if it affects sales too much when we open it up again.

Until next month! Happy selling and buying!
