Our store is still made of 75% clothing, but we are trying to source at least 50% hardgoods when we thrift - so the balance is slowly shifting!
This leaves us way more time than we used to have for focusing on other income projects and spending time together as a family. We are not to the point of actually having free time yet, but we’re on our way!
When we first started selling on eBay we joined several large Facebook groups that were dedicated to reselling (or so we thought). I commented on a few posts now and then and tried to be helpful but mostly just read and absorbed what other people were saying. One day, I ran across an awesome info-graphic about eBay that I decided to share on one of the largest groups. *BAM* I was instantly banned. It turns out that the purpose of the group was not to help sellers, it was to promote the group owners personal brand and her eBay courses. Since I shared something from a "competitor" I was banned. Other Facebook groups were the same story, this one was designed to sell a lady's mystery boxes, this one was just to push traffic to a resellers YouTube channel. So we moved on to try and find a tribe elsewhere.
We normally wouldn't get very excited by a Tommy jacket but this one was NWT and in an extremely good size! Most stores only carry up to a 3XL so, if you wear a larger size than that, it can be extremely difficult to find things that fit properly. Down jacket, huge size, mainstream brand, no brainer! It took 2 days to sell at this price

My wife and I are a young couple, still in school, and doing our best not only to make ends meet, but to excel! We feel like we have so much to offer and can kick this world's butt if we can just get on our feet. Join our journey!
