Follow me on my day to day adventures of thrifting and selling on eBay. This blog will be a mix of my fun finds, super sales, and helpful hints. I hope to help you become a successful eBay seller along the way.
Phew. I'm still plowing through this stuff. I'm quite proud of the progress I've made. Usually I bring this stuff home and it just sits there for months. But I've gotten a LOT of it listed!
This batch is all shoes, so bear with me. I'll keep it brief :-)
Clarks. Boring. This is a bread and butter brand for me. Steady sellers but absolutely nothing to write home about.
I don't find Ariats too often, but when I do, they sell well. The insoles of these show a good bit of wear, but the leather polished up nicely and they are holding their shape well. Besides, they were the half-price color. I should be able to get $35ish for these.
I have a firm rule about Clarks. I refuse to buy any that are older than 4 years old. Did you know that the manufacture date is stamped inside Clarks? You'll see a 5-digit style number, followed by a xx/xx number. That's the month and year of manufacture. I have had to send out too many refunds for broken and dry-rotted shoes, so I stick with the newer ones. These were a year or two outside my rule. But they look like they've hardly been worn, so I took a chance on them.
These are Birkenstock Footprints mary janes. I've sold a few Birks in the past, but I've kind of quit buying them unless they are in great condition. I have never seen Birkenstock MJ's, and these are in like-new condition. The soles look as if they have never touched the ground. I am optimistic about these.
More Clarks. At least these are a little more interesting-looking...
These are Clarks too. But they are absolutely darling, so I bought them. Oh, and did I mention they are my size? ;-)
SAS sandals. I've mentioned SAS shoes often. Always buy them, if they're in good condition.
BOC (a division of Born) wedge sandals. These are a size 6. I try to avoid size 6, because I can't seem to sell that size for the life of me. But these are cute and look as if they have never been worn, so I got them. We'll see...
Vegan Danskos! Who knew such a thing even existed? Not me. The whites on these cleaned up very nicely with Goo Gone. I haven't researched them, but I expect them to do very well. They're in really great condition, and a little different than your typical Danskos.
Another cute-ish pair of Clarks. These feel buttery-soft, almost like nubuck, but not quite. I should maybe have listed them last week for back to school? I dunno. Do girls wear gold flowered flats to school these days?
