I never realized books sell...I saw a ton of old cookbooks and stuff at a yard sale the other day and didn't even glace at them. They were only $0.25 each too...I guess I thought they sell so cheaply, they'd never sell on Ebay. Now I'll definitely be scoping them out!!

Has anyone every had someone not be happy with shoes being sent in a polymailer? The lady left me positive feedback and didn't mention it (thank goodness), but she messaged me and said, "My only real issue was the packaging. I just couldn't believe the shoes came wrapped up taped in a plastic/wrapping paper. I wasn't expecting the original box or anything like that, but the packaging could have just been much better, especially when I did pay for a shipping and handling fee. Other than that the shoes are just as described. Thank you."

I had wrapped the shoes in brown paper individually so they wouldn't rub against each other, then put them in a polymailer, and taped the label on...She paid less than $3 for S&H, there's no way I could have shipped in a box for that cheap!

New onesie - I would still list it nwt and then state in the listing that it is part of a set. I like to make it very obvious with something like this:

NOTE *********THIS IS ORIGINALLY PART OF A 3 PIECE SET******

so it can't come back to bite me, or for example if it is NWT, but tag is ripped, price off etc. Just in case somebody wants it as a gift and not for personal use.

What kinda disney onesie? I do like those target ones like the monsters inc etc, those were so cute and a 3 piece set.

Scrubs - I totally passed up on some greys anatomy ones as I thought they weren't worth much at savers. Maybe I'll go check out my local GW later as they have a good selection of scrubs.

B's Mommy - nice score on the bag of toys!

So far sold about $50 of stuff overnight, 2 of which I listed last night(vera bradley bag and KVZ wallet) so far a good day Inspires me to list more....
Good thought listing price ripped off! I was going to list something nwt and didn't think of this!

Re: does anyone have a sucessful Ebay store?

I finally got 2 more feedback today (bringing my grand total to 4 since I've started selling) and one was a very enthusiastic "ok ". I guess the dress wasn't what she thought it would be? Oh well, it is still a positive and that is all I care about!

Re: does anyone have a sucessful Ebay store?




My load for $20! around 120 items Hightlights are: 3 lite brites, VS Pink and Angel bras (1 of each), name brand stuff, NWT stuff, Alice in Wonderland costume.....it was awful though! I thought DS4 was getting better and over it pretty much, but then he had diarrhea and threw up on the way home He's going to the dr @3. They were fussing at me on the phone about "when a baby that young has a fever, there's something wrong and they need to be seen right away." Well, they always told me if it was 101.5 or higher. His was 101.4 at it's highest (went down to 101.1 after I took his pj's off!) and it didn't even last 12 hours Wednesday....he's been fever free since after nap Wed! Hopefully we'll get it knocked out. He's not dehydrated or anything and has been eating fine, but it's the weekend and I'd rather get in now than the ER later!

Anway, I only sold 17.50 yesterday and 0000000 today!! Ahhh!! I'm starting a 15% sale in about a 1/2 hour on EVERYTHING listed just to try to move some stuff - I really don't want to pay a late fee on my electric Monday!

People leave weird fb - don't worry about it lol! I got this on a VS bra:
"It's pretty precious. Thank you."
and this on a pair of shoes:
"good shoes, fit fine." As if the fit had anything to do with me as a seller?? As long as they're positive, I don't stress!

Re: does anyone have a sucessful Ebay store?

I have a customer right now who bought a shirt, noticed a flaw I hadn't listed, left negative feedback without contacting me. *I* contacted him to get a return initiated, apologized etc waited a week for him to return it to me (too busy with work apparently), he didn't, emailed me and said it was too hard to get to the post office, he'd take a $10 partial refund instead and then would change feedback. Sent him a feedback change request 4 or 5 days ago, emailed to make sure he got it and nothing. I have a feeling I'm going to be stuck with that stupid negative. The requests are only good for 7 days aren't they? Doesn't ebay require you contact before leaving negative, will they remove it for me? or is that something they're going to start doing, thought I read that somewhere.

Picked up the lot of new VS stuff. I think I will do really well with it! The girl had even found a few more outfits to throw in. Man, she has a buying problem! It was all online purchase stuff, most still in bags and never tried on or anything.
