Recently my wife and I were wandering around a pawn shop (as we're wont to do) and we came across an interesting display of plates! They were extremely beautiful but this beauty came at a steep price, $100 per plate or $500 for the set of six. Well out came our phones so we could check if anything similar has sold on eBay in the past couple months. Sure enough! A similar set of 6 had sold for (what appeared to be) $1,395 plus shipping! Now did we have $500 sitting around to spend on 6 plates? No, but if that could be translated into a quick $800 payoff then by George we could do it. Fortunately we didn't get quite swept up into our self-created hype and put in our due diligence before carrying the plates up to the register. Check out how we discovered the much less exciting amount the plates actually sold for...
Our sales are ramping up as Christmas approaches! You'll notice that the majority of our sales are higher in amount if not profit percentage. If just wasn't fitting with our schedule or desired life plan to ramp up our number of listings and sales. Quality over quantity! Lately we haven't been buying anything while thrifting unless we're pretty confident it can sell for $50+
So if you're into making money on eBay, check out some of these BOLOs for your own thrifting!
