Selling Previously Owned Clothing

Hi friends,

I hope you are all doing well on this fine day.  I would like your input into this little subject of selling used clothing.  I happened to visit a website yesterday and was quite surprised at how wrinkled a lot of the clothing appeared in its pictures.  I thought to myself "this isn't very appealing".  So I wanted to get your thoughts on the matter.  When shopping for previously owned clothing, do you pay more attention to the brand name, or the condition of the garment (i.e. the wrinkles)?

Since I sell gently used pre-owned clothing in my eBay store, I usually (admittedly not consistently) try to make them as appealing as possible.  Freshly laundered, pressed, and either hanging neatly or on a dress form or mannequin.  Please share your thoughts.

Blondie's Boutique Blog and eBay

Since I spend most of my energy dedicated to my eBay store/business.  My blog will now focus on helping others who want to do the same.  Whether you are a college student, stay at home mom (or dad), baby boomer.... or somewhere in between; you can increase your income by selling on the eBay platform.  After several years of trying this business and that business, I finally dedicated myself and my time to selling on eBay.  I've made a 5 year commitment (1 year down).  And I LOVE IT!  I encourage you to give it a try.  Watch Thrift Hunters on Spike Network for great ideas on what to thrift for if you don't have anything to sell.  But I'd bet everyone has a little bit of something they can sell.

In addition to selling on eBay, I am an eBay Education Specialist.  I offer structured classes through CISD Community Education in New Braunfels, Texas; and one on one instructions to individuals.

Since I work a full time job as well, my schedule is somewhat limited; but give me a shout and we will try to work something out.

Wishing you all much success,

How to Build your eBay Feedback Score Quickly

eBay feedback score is a very important part of your reputation as a buyer and a seller.  The higher the score, the better your reputation.  The only piece of advice I can give for building your feedback score quickly is simply to purchase low price items.  So, go for items priced between $.01 - $5.00; with or without delivery and you can typically build your score and reputation relatively quickly.  Be sure to leave your seller positive feedback; and if they fail to to the same quickly - just ask.

Happy buying and selling,
