Hi everyone and welcome to the March 31, 2011 edition of my best thrift store finds of the week.  Each week I’ll post several pics of items that I’ve recently sold on eBay as well as share with you the profits that I’ve made for that item.  This post thread has quickly become my favorite and hopefully you’re starting to get some ideas of what brands and items to look for at your own thrift stores.

This week was really exciting for me because I forced myself to step out of my comfort zone and try to look for other products.  Those who’ve been following the previous finds of the week are aware that my reselling strategy is to look for sports products and shoes.  Although those two categories are still my best sellers, I know that thrift stores are full of other items that are great to resell.  The Nintendo jacket did well because I know there’s a nostalgia factor when it come sto “old-school” video games systems like Nintendo.  The Robert Graham shirts I found by accident.  I never heard of the brand before but I noticed that the tag was still attached to the purple shirt and it showed that the shirt retails for $158!  It was an easy purchase after that.  Take a look at my Tag…you’re it post to find out how sales tags have helped me find those great thrift store items to resell!

Good luck with the treasure-hunt!
