Formal dresses aren't usually a good seller on ebay, however, with the holidays approaching it appears some want to pick up designer evening wear at a resale price. This Women's Jones New York Size 10 Red Cocktail Dress sold for $14.99.
This Women's Dana Buckman Size 16 Black Silk Cocktail Dress sold for $24.99
This Women's NWT Nicole Miller Size 2 $275 Black Lace Dress sold for $26.00
This Women's Bebe Size S Sexy Black Dress sold for $36.00 (remember I said I was experimenting with this brand- so far all items have sold big)
This Diane Von Furstenberg Size 6 Silk Vittoriana Dress sold for $41.00 (if you aren't familiar with Diane Von Furstenberg, she was a guest judge on Project Runway, A highly acclaimed designer and is credited for creating the wrap dress in the 60's- find a vintage Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress and you've got a winner on ebay.) Don't get me wrong, dresses aren't the only thing selling on ebay. Here's some of my other top sellers this week...
Women's Eileen Fisher Size Petite Large Chocolate Brown Pants sold for $29.99
Women's Gap Size 20 Curvy Trouser Denim Jeans sold for $34.00- Trouser jeans are really in right now. Now you know I don't usually buy men's clothing for ebay, however these jeans were in the women's section. I thought they were cute, and for women, so I bought them for $1.00.
I wasn't familiar with the brand AG Adriano Goldschmied so I looked them up on ebay, under the completed listings. I discovered they are actually men's jeans and sell quite well. These came in as my top seller this week. Men's AG Size 34x32 Denim Jeans sold for $42.00. So why do I want to know what you would do with an extra $1,000. Because that's almost what I earned this WEEK on ebay. Completely and totally unexpected! I love the financial freedom ebay affords my family. I'll repeat my weekly advice: If you've ever thought of selling on ebay, start now. Sometimes I feel like an infomercial, but believe me I'm not receiving any type of compensation from ebay. I know these are hard economic times and I truly believe ebay is a nitch that not only isn't suffering from the economy, but is actually thriving, as more people are looking for a better deal then a department store. Here's my totals for the week:
Costs: 88.00(clothes), 120.02(ebay fees), 67.56 (paypal fees)
Total Profit: $697.87
It's not $1,000 pure profit, but who's complaining! Looks like a little early Christmas shopping for my family. So, Tomorrow is Goodwill's dollar day (If you're in a location that has dollar day) go pick up 20 items and give ebay a try. Your first 100 items are free to list each month so you've got nothing to loose. Okay change the channel now, I'm really am sounding like a commercial. Love, Kelly
