Thrift Store Items You Can Resell on eBay (1/11/2014)

frustrated kobeWith the holiday season in the rear view mirror and daily life starting to (somewhat) get back to normal, it feels like a great time to get back into the groove of things and start sharing some of my thrift store finds.

I hope you took advantage of the holiday rush and you made some serious moves during that time.  I was definitely riding a nice wave of sales but, unfortunately, what goes up must eventually come down.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m comparing it to the rush of the holiday season but it sure feel like sales have slow down a little.  I’m still making daily trips to the post office but the eBay fishes aren’t biting like they used to.

Luckily, eBay just announced another promotion (200,000 free auction-listings from January 11-21) which will hopefully jump-start some sales again.  I’ve been thrifting like crazy the past two days and I’ve found some great stuff along the way.  I just about finished taking pictures and I’m just waiting for the promo to start so I can take advantage of the free listings.

In the mean time, it’s not all bad news – except for the Lakers losing YET another game by like 50 million points!  Take your time and get well Kobe; no point rushing back to this mess!  But I digress.

Like I said, it’s not all bad news on the eBay front.  I’ve still made some great sales and I’m confident that this upcoming promo is just what I need to get the bids rolling again.

Until next time, have a great weekend and good luck at the thrift stores!

  1. I dont do auctions very often since if it doesnt sell I have wasted my free insertion fees (I am always very close to the 500 listings per month and I dont like paying more than I have to) but I am very excited about the free auction with BIN promotion its how I prefer to sell clothes (and I have 4 tubs I have been waiting to list)…hopefully some will sell and give me room for yard sale season 😀

    1. It seems like this latest promo came at just the right time for both of us! I listed several new items yesterday and many of them already have watchers and bids, so I’m off to a good start. I hope you sell each and every one of your items – good luck!


  2. Oh Arc’teryx, I love finding that brand! Unfortunately my 3 boys in their 20’s love it too so they usually keep it and I don’t get to sell it. But at least it was at thrift store prices :)

    1. I don’t blame your boys for wanting to keep it, the quality of that brand is amazing! Lucky for me, there’s not really much use for a winter jacket here in Hawai’i so there’s no reason for me to keep it. Like you said though, it’s better to pay $6.99 for it at the thrift store than pay over $400 at retail price!
