eBay-The fall selling season has arrived!

Yesterday, July 15th, was the unofficial start to the fall selling season on eBay! Yippee!! I'm am so ready for sales to pick back up. May and June are traditionally slow, so I hope no one has become discouraged. I sure have not. Now is the time to list and make $$$.

Be sure to read these two recent posts: The eBay Selling Coach wrote about using keywords in your title, how to look them up, etc. And eBay Mommy shared a link to a video about how to rise to the top of eBay's search page. I didn't watch the video. She said it's about 10 mintues long, but I think it might have been the one that bored me a few months ago. I'll give it a try again on Friday, before I do my listings. I'll be in the right frame of mind then. :)

Any eBay success stories? I'll share my best auction, if you do first! It's a good one, and you'll learn something about me.

My best auction was for a cell phone. I was up for a new one on my contract but mine still works perfect so I researched the best selling one. I got the new phone and sold it in 20 miniutes on ebay for just over $300! Yeah me!

Okay, so my best auction. This was the case $$$$ wise and excitment wise. Anyway, so I got to thinking about my vintage (1988) Corey O'Brien, Santa Cruz, Reaper deck (as in skateboard) and decided to research it on eBay. I saw them going for $500 used to $1300 still shrink wrapped. So, I ran to my mom's to dig it out of the closet, asap. It sold for $864.00!!!!!!

It was in AWESOME condition, I wasn't into the scabby knees part of skating and gave up real quick! I decided to just watch.

Dig into those closets people! My second "most exciting" auction was my vintage Dukes of Hazzard sheets. They went for $90. Who would have thought!

See, you learned some of the weird crap I have in my closets and a little bit more about me. :)
