At the beginning of this year my goal was to reach 1000 listings in one year which would end at the end of December. Now I'm thinking it would be great to reach 1000 before then and take advantage of holiday shoppers. So my new goal is to try for 1000 by Oct 1st (ish). I just hit 800 so I have 200 to go in 3 months. Sounds doable but it took me 6 months to do 300 so I'm going to have to up my game. These slow sales will 'help'. Not that I hope for slow sales but I'm going to take advantage of the extra time and list more. So on to my best sales.
Harley Jacket. Paid $7 sold for $65 free shipping. This sat for quite a long time before someone finally purchased it. I took a Best Offer on it.
New Balance Shoes. Paid $9. Took Best Offer for $40 plus shipping. Bought these for myself but they didn't fit. Too wide.
Leaf Handkerchief. Paid .25. Sold for $19.99 free shipping. Isn't it pretty? I can't imagine blowing my nose with it. This was sitting unlisted forever with lots of other handkerchiefs I've bought. Finally listed most of them. Some in lots and a few singly. I've sold two lots and this single within a month. It pays to get that old unlisted inventory listed. Why oh why do I leave it sit?
My motto to myself this week was found in the comments on the Scavenger Life blog. Steven S. said
"I thinks it's best to keep your head down and shovel that pile of inventory into the eBay furnace, keep that fire burnin'." Wonderful image.
So if sales have been slow for you too this week, keep your head down and shovel!! Keep your chin up though, it'll get better.
