Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Program

    I don’t know about you but it feels like forever since I’ve posted some of my eBay sales.  I’ve had some great finds recently and  I’m excited to finally be able to share some of them with you.  But before I do, I just wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you who made the release of the Reseller Guide 5.0 such a huge success!!

    I’m very proud/excited/elated about all the new content I added, and all the positive feedback I received (from first-time readers as well as those who received their free update) made all those looooong hours in front of the computer time well spent!

    So again:  Thank you so much!!

    Making The Time

    Make TimeWhen it comes to reselling on eBay, a big part of being successful is just showing up at the thrift stores and giving yourself a chance.

    I know that we’re all very busy with our daily errands and, in my experience, it’s not about having the time to make these visits, it’s about MAKING THE TIME!

    Between answering questions, sending out free updates to previous owners, and all the twist and turns of the day, it suffices to say that I was extremely busy during the release of the updated guide.

    I could’ve easily just stopped going to the thrift store but I still made the time to visit a few stores each day and I was rewarded with some great finds!

    Thanks again for all your support and I hope you’re having a safe and exciting Halloween!

    Talk to you soon,

  1. Hi Meinard,
    I wondered if you have any secret techniques to cleaning the shoes you resale ? Do you mind sharing if you do ?

    1. Hi Bonnie,

      It’s no secret really. I use a shoe cleaner that you can purchase from Champs Sports and Footlocker, it costs about $5. The shoe cleaner comes with it’s own scrubber but I find that an old toothbrush works much better at removing the dirt and scuffs.

      Here’s a link to a post I wrote about how I clean my shoes and get them ready for the auction.

      I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions, thanks!


        1. Hi, I rarely use the sneaker cleaner to clean the inside of the shoes. I always stress in my auctions that the shoes are in “used-condition” so buyers are already expecting some flaws. I always try to get rid of any grass or rocks that I find and I dust off the insoles if they need it but, for the most part, the majority of cleaning is done on the outside of the shoe.


  2. Meinard,

    Great finds! I have sold a few shoes and I have a few shoes listed right now. I don’t clean them but in the comment above, you said you buy cleaner and make them look nice. Hmm, maybe I should start doing that :-). I don’t think I will ever find a pair of Lebron shoes because people know they are valuable!

    Well since it’s my first time here, I thought I would let you know that I also have a eBay blog. Sellonebayforprofit is my blog. Make sure to check me out.

    1. Hi Adley,

      I would recommend cleaning them if you have the time – the shoe cleaner is cheap and a cleaner looking shoe should attract more bids and buyers. And thanks for the link to your blog, I’ll be sure to check it out. Thanks!
