I learn so much from you videos - Thank you for taking the time to share them with us!
thanks, glad you like them!
Come on guys... Please elaborate on what you look for when buying shoes because you sell a lot of them and I can't seem to sell any. This shoe learning curve is becoming too expensive. There has got to be certain brands, material, or a look that you typically always buy when you see them. And you're constantly selling Ferragamo's and I would not know how to spot 1 if I saw it unless it said the brand name. My shoe picking is about as bad as my clothing picking. I picked up what I thought was a nice vintage Wrangler shirt only to research it and find out it's on sale right now at Walmart for 15 bucks. I still plan to sell it for 20. But if you could shoe elaborate I'd appreciate it. And yes I've seen a lot of sold eBay shoes but its not like I can email the sellers and ask why they thought to buy it.
I mean this in the best possible way: sell stuff you know already. Clothes and shoes don't seem to be your strength.
http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?93058-How-do-you-tell-quality-shoes-from-cheap-shoesI really think that when buying shoes what you're likely to be able to find and flip varies pretty wildly from region to region. There is a blogger named Meinard who goes into huge detail about what types of sneakers and clothes to buy... you can check him out at thriftstorereseller.com -- he's in urban Hawai'i, so the majority of things he's selling aren't available in my little New England town, but depending on your location and level of interest you might find him super helpful. My first link (sorry, having trouble with cut and paste on the phone) is a thread about identifying nice quality shoes; there's a fair amount of snobbery and opinion there but also some good general remarks about what makes a quality shoe. Also, there are also some generally decent quality shoe brands such as, I don't know, Ecco, Clarks, Dansko, Birkenstock, that you might be able to find, again, depending on your area. Or maybe good quality boots like Red Wing are more prevalent. I think that even within the category of shoes there's going to be a subcategory of greater accessibility/interest to you and it makes sense to start there rather than to try to digest the whole world of shoes at once.
@Anon - just like anything with picking at sales, always look for quality. Check out this article on identifying high quality dress shoes: http://dealnews.com/features/How-to-Find-Mens-Dress-Shoes-That-Will-Last-for-Decades/1128295.html
You're right Jay their not my strength but hardly anything is until I sell a few and then it becomes a strength. Clothes and shoes are a good thing to know because their everywhere. It does me little good to know all about a type of item if I rarely find it. I just like learning more and more but can't afford the learning curve right now. I appreciate anyone who's willing to share their info as others have. It's very helpful and as a community when one grows we all grow.
as you see, i make a video every week showing you what we sell and for how much. in the last 6 months i show at least 1-2 pairs of shoes in each video. you can't afford the learning curve? you can't afford NOT to take the time to learn, that's the truth, any seller will tell you that.
That was a great article Brian--Anon I hope that you took the time to read it. Interestingly I had to pass on 2 pairs of Allen Edmonds dress shoes today because the toe boxes were weirdly distorted by the last guy to wear them--that is unfixable IMO. I also had to pass on some Corcoran boots because the heels were really run down. Anon, even if you know the brands to look for (I have only referenced men's shoes because I don't do women's) be sure and look at the condition--that is equally important.
deb truer valuesI like selling shoes because they do well, but I must say that they tend to take longer to sell than other items.....I have decided to sell only a couple of brands that move well for me, unless i get them REALLY cheap, like $2.00Birkenstock and Born go faster than others...also have done well with anything that looks Native American, using the key words powwow, rendezvous, mountain man--people go to these events like renaissance faires, and they look for costumes. Have sold these kinds of boots anywhere from cheap-$25.00-to $130--maybe 5-6 pairs in the last 6 months.Another brand that has done well for me is Cole Haan.....
Birkenstocks from the 80s & 90s are extremely hot/trendy right now, I believe they were featured by a fashion designer last fall... my wife is really into fashion and was so happy when she went to her parents' house and found her Birks from high school way in the back of her closet, otherwise she'd have had to shell out $100 for them used on eBay.
Shoes and what to buy... We went over to Virginia last weekend by the coast in a small college town. I have always been drawn to good leather from my equestrian days and am an old school prep, liking Bass, Berks, Dexter, Cole Haan, Minnetonka, etc.. I always wondered how Jay and Ryanne found so many good shoes. Well I purchased at least one bag full from every thrift I went to in Virginia. Many had been marked down several times. I would have never found that many in a month in Ohio. So it seems from my experience that Virginia is full of leather shoe lovers and very few Ebay sellers that are sourcing for them. My point is, it's not just what you know, but what is available in your area to source!
@anonymous, I say this in a kind way..........sometimes the learning curve in the ability to know good quality takes time,,,,,,,,,time well spent, you can look at photos all day long or have others try to explain what makes a good quality brand, but the best way is to go out to some expensive shops and pick up and handle real leather items, or expensive items......touch it. smell it, caress it.....really this is true. Quality will begin to speak to you and you can spot it a mile away......Now before you think I am someone who has learned to spot quality from purchasing expensive stuff, let me tell ya, I am probably the poorest person you know............but for years I have shopped secondhand, and I have seen lots of expensive stuff on the hangers in consignment shops, brand names I had only heard of.......seen them at yard sales is ritzy subdivisions, and over the years I learned how those quality items felt, how they were sewn, I began to notice the nice even stitches, or how the seams matched, how smooth and soft the material and the leather felt, (well gotta admit hubby is a leather crafter on that one)anyway learning to know what is quality sellers does take time........you can also check out the websites of expensive shops to learn what brand names carry those hefty price tags..........I just hope this in some way helps you to learn how to look for high quality items when you are out scavenging.Resell is a great thing, it is also a business of buying lots of duds, but that is how you learn, and I think for many of us who have been resellers years before online selling was even a thought, will tell you the same thing.........just like in brick and mortar shops or selling at flea markets online sellers have to take the time to educate themselves and become like a sponge to absorb what our potential customers will spend their hard earned money for.
Can I ask how you package the art that you sold on this video? I just bought a large framed print for the first time, and I'm not sure how to go about protecting it. I assume bubble wrap, since you have mentioned using lots of bubble wrap before! But, that would require a thicker box that I usually see. Suggestions!?
Click on playlists (right above where it says download all episodes. Under the How to Videos section there is a video of Ryanne packing a large framed piece of art.
Brassing Rubbing = $120!! We did these as part of an art project at school about 40 odd years ago in our local church. If only we knew we were creating such expensive works of art!! I clearly should have been hoarding from a very young age.The Farrow & Ball sample paints are around $7 each new. Much sought after along with Annie Sloan and Laura Ashley to use to paint up art frames and sell as shabby chic. See here; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/French-Vintage-Retro-Shabby-Chic-Photo-Picture-Frame-Blue-Collection-Set-/251943821409?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3aa905a061Ref to non paying bidders. I had someone trying to bid and my blocking requirements didn't allow her through. She messaged me twice insisting she was 100% good feedback and didn't understand that having 4 unpaid items in the last 6 months was what I'd blocked at. I had to stop further discussions in the end as it was getting a bit silly.
About the rubbing, LOL, (I am Sue too, btw) I remember when doing those rubbings were the rage in the 70's--no reason that they still couldn't be done today, the real value was in the framing and matting of the piece, that is what is expensive and not the "art" in this case, but I had to laugh a bit about it because I remember the fashion for doing it so well.
my grandma was really into doing the rubbings in the 60s-70s when her and my grandfather were stationed in UK. so many people were into it that the churches banned it and, from what my mom tells me, they made replicas in museums that people could do the rubbings from. so originals are worth a little to a lot depending on the quality. the one i sold was a cool image, but the rubbing was not of the highest quality. we've sold others before for about that much. the problem is that they are usually HUGE and tough to pack. i custom made a box for that one. but i'm glad it sold and is out of my storage!
jay just sent this to me too---https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brass_rubbing"Brass plaques are slowly but surely worn away by the rubbing process and in many cases creating rubbings is banned. Brass rubbing centres with replicas of original brass plaques have become a prime source for brass rubbings in the UK. Replicas are often not the same scale as the original."
A few weeks ago, someone noticed that I had a lot of records in my store (75-80) and asked how they sell... in general, I'll sell 1-2 per week. As mentioned, I never buy a record for much more than $1 and it has to be great to pay $2 for it - a relatively low risk investment that I list & forget and all of my records fit easily into one plastic tub standing up. Over the past week, I've sold Billy Joel Piano Man, Billy Joel Stranger, Credence Clearwater, U2 Unforgettable Fire, 1960s Dinsey Nutcracker Suite for $132 total (less than $5 COGS) plus a box of 1950s/60s jukebox 45s and a box of 100 1980s 45s for a total of $150 ($15 COGS). When looking for LPs there are things to take notice of:1) genre of music - I stick to 1960s/70s rock, pre-1960s jazz, and childrens (because usually children destroy records so if you find one in good condition it's rare)2) condition of cover/sleeve - some people like to frame their favorite covers, so one without rips, tears, discoloration, or damage will command a premium3) condition of vinyl - duh, if it's scratched you can't play it4) UPC barcodes - the first ever scanned UPC in the USA was in 1974 and they weren't required until the early 1980s. So, if you have a 1960s record with a barcode on the back of the sleeve, it's not an original pressing, but instead a reprint.5) Is there something special? Does it have poster inside, is it a gatefold cover, does it have the original picture inner sleeve, etc. All of this increases price.6) MFSL - a lot of classic albums have been re-released by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, who uses the original studio recording and remasters them - they are usually easy to spot in a pile of record because they have a bright yellow strip across the top of the sleeve that says "From the Original Master Recording". Audiophiles LOVE this and will pay top dollar for these recordings; I've only had one good one (Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon) and sold it for $75 with a torn cover. Good luck out there!
Thanks for this thorough dump of info. I always see records but am hesitant to buy. Every thrift store has boxes of them. Most seem to be easy listening, classical, or Christian/Gospel. I should spend more time digging,
As usual Brian thank you for your time and detailed info. I know it will help me for I see tons of records dumped at the weigh in pay. I remember a podcast forever ago talking about how hard it is to ship then without breakage. And what about heat? I'd be afraid they'd melt outside. Any suggestions on that?
Records scare me, record collectors tend to be super anal (I know, I used to be one!)
Oh yeah, you have to dig through 100x Christmas, Polka, Classical, Easy Listening, Disco records to find one gem - just like digging through the bins at the weigh & pay. All about the time/effort you put in.For storage, I just have a square Rubbermaid that I stand them up in (don't stack them on top of each other). I guess it depends where you store things on if they could melt - mine are in my basement so it's relatively cool.As for shipping, I'll put each in a polypropelene sleeve (http://www.ebay.com/itm/231632229263) and then in a LP box (http://www.ebay.com/itm/181100531502). I have never had a problem with damage by shipping this way and actual collectors love that I take that time. Combined it's about $1 worth of supplies used and I'll build that into my handling fee.
@Omfug X - I rarely have a pristine new in plastic record, so I simply describe it and take photos of the cover & sleeves and also a well lit close up of the vinyl grooves - to show that there are no major scratches. I was nervous about one buyer who asked 2364245123 questions before buying but he ended up loving the album!
Brian - I was the one who asked about your records a few weeks ago. Thanks for this extra info here.
Talk about nostalgia, here's an auction for all those Mad Men props. Wonder how successful it will be.http://auction.screenbid.com/view-auctions/catalog/id/38/
everything they bought on ebay!
Wonder if your lamp is on there?
i looked for it, but i couldn't see it. i will check again. i have acutally seen the same looking lamp in a couple other shows after that aired, so i wonder if it was bought by someone who just rented it to them.
Or one of the actors or crew took it home.
@Ryanne - a quick in-the-field test for crystal vs. glass is to flick the side with your finger or a fork/knife (like at a wedding)... if it has a low ringing that lasts a few seconds, it's crystal and the longer the ring lasts indicates more lead (and it's older); a quick "tink" means it's glass.And then there's this kid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lf5TDX2EnOU
yeah i found that kid right after i made the video clip and i tested the goblet and it was crystal. should have videoed the test, but i was pressed for time with my carrier on her way. this kid is awesome. "bubbles in the crystal diminish the value!" ha ha.
What an adorable clip. What a great education for a boy. He will be making money by selling on Ebay instead of selling drugs. Must have good parents, too, to enourage him in buying, selling and making videos. Funny thing: at first I thought the video was Brian!
deb truer values - Yes, I've seen this kid before, and shown his videos to my grandchildren. He is an inspiration, and quite the little entrepreneur!He has a lot of money making ideas for kids--like how to sell candy bars at school.
so cute! as much as i love having a childhood before internet 2.0, i think i could've been an awesome little middle school ebayer.
Love his video too :) My roommate sold candy in grade school 40 years ago. He was a pioneer in retail arbitrage ;) I wish I'd had ebay 35 years ago.
Always love seeing what has sold for you guys! You have such cool finds. Busy, busy week here. We have finally addressed our storage problem and are no longer living in a warehouse!
Cyndi, What did you do for your storage problem? Just curious. I use lots of bins in the basement, and have a couple of empty closets for dresses and blazers. Always curious about storage solutions.
Pat,We sealed off our garage, put in metal storage shelves and then have rubbermaid bins for inventory. I have been shocked by the amount of time is saved by having all of our inventory in one place. The time spent pulling inventory to ship has been reduced by at least 50%. Cyndi
Cyndi- congrats on the new storage system. Do you put all of your inventory in the garage? Is it climate controlled? I have a new storage shed that I plan to use a bin system with, but I'm concerned that some of the items will be affected by the extreme heat and cold (although not as extreme since I live in Texas :)).
Cyndi, That's awesome! And I bet it is improving your quality of life, as well !I have discovered that I create "bins of doom" by consolidating the last few items of a bin into another bin until now I have multiple bins of doom. If clutter represents "decisions delayed" these must be called "listings delayed"
That is awesome Cydi. and Pat I hear ya, I have created such a mess with my bins of doom that it has honestly hindered me in getting anything listed. I spend way to much time trying to get all this stuff organized and have just overwhelmed myself. I could have a store filled with a thousands items if I could learn to be better organized. Dang I have turned into a time sucking hoarder!! and that dont even sound good as I type it....anyway , hope all of ya'll have a great weekend.
The garage is attached to our house so there is some level of climate control. I don't worry about the cold so much as I was worried about the humidity in the summer. I got some moisture control packs that you simply place in an area and they suck up the humidity. We have a temperature gauge out there and so far so good!To everyone with unlisted piles. Start seeing those unlisted piles as piles of $20 bills. Would you leave a pile of $20 bills just sitting? Unlisted inventory is like giving money to the bank and saying, Here take this money, do with it whatever you want, and I may or may not ever come back for it. Back to work. Happy Friday everyone!
Cyndi, I love your analogy to $20 bills. Gosh, that's a motivator!! All day long I have been seeing those pikes of money, and it's giving me great incentive to kick it up a notch, and try to list faster.I am behind right now because I can shop so much faster than I can list. Consequently, this summer I have been on a shopping hiatus while I try to work down the piles and bins. I miss shopping but I never want to be this far in the hole ever again; it bites.
Love those crazy huge glasses, I've sold quite a few as well, usually get them for a quarter.I hope I don't sound like a know it all smarty pants but I was in the Air Force back in the seventies and those olive drab army/military shirts are also called fatigue uniforms along with the pants, maybe you knew that already, if not, another key word for you..
Steven, You are way too nice a guy to ever be a know it all smarty pants!
thank you, that is helpful!
Can anyone remind me of the link to the awesome charts for measuring clothes to post on your ebay listings? I thought I saved it but can't find it. Does anyone have advice on making a template so I can teach a friend how to list clothing items for me by just filling in the blanks? She finished helping go thru all my inventory and wants to do more, but isn't good at photos, and I don't feel comfortable trying to teach her how to list anything else. most items I think by the time I told her what to put in the listing I could do it faster myself. But if I had a simple template system that might be doable. Any advice?
Ryanne, can you provide the link to making a clickable link? I cannot seem to get it to work (and I don't see it in the resources tab).
I use Link Generator
i'm a nerd and i just type it manually. a href=, etc.
There's a band called 1023MB. They haven't had any gigs yet.#technerdjoke

Thank you so much Anne, Ryanne and Brian. That is exactly what I needed. I am so grateful for this blog and the kind contributors here.
AnnA you probably meant.
Yes, I am a horrible speller on my ipad. I need a real keyboard. Anna.
Are you kidding me? I just got a policy violation for keyword spamming and they edited my listing for me and kept the listing live. When I saw what item it was I thought I was getting flagged by comparing it to a cabbage patch doll but no, I got flagged for the words "boy girl" in my title. They say it's unrelated keywords. Compared it to "like new. It irks me because the doll could be either a boy or girl hence my words. Or for a young boy or girl to play with. I don't get this one at all.
interesting that they edited it rather than take it down. i think that's a good thing. before they would take it down and there was no way to edit the listing to fix and relist. it just completely disappeared like it never existed which was a pain.
Anne, I got one of those as well. I was selling a man's sweater where I had "Coogi-style" in the title for a different brand. They edited it out and kept the listing live. I guess that's a new thing they're trying to do.
I thought about it, and thought "how can I contribute to the group". I am sure most of this is common sense to a lot of us, but maybe not all. So hear it is.Things I wish I knew before I started.All that glitters is not gold. Just because it say 14k does not mean it is; invest in a high strength magnet (one you can carry with you, I use a carabiner to attach to my pants). Also a gold test kit, and learn how to use it.Tape and Bubble wrap are EXPENSIVE. Stop buying from Office Depot and find use Uline.A scavenger is nothing without a scale. Make sure to buy a mail scale. I bought one for $25 on amazon and works perfect. It paid for it self in a matter of days. Make friends. Like all businesses networking will only benefit. I made friends with my local mail lady (yes I still drop my packages off at the post office), and she saves all her bubble wrap and boxes for me and drops them off once a month.Don’t be a burnout. Picking is great, but you chose this life to have a life not a job. Make sure you have time for the more important things in life.“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”- Bruce Lee I love jewelry but in such a saturated market it is hard to sell standard gold necklaces. The just don’t sell for the money you think. Yes, a person may spend $300 on a small gold necklace at Helzburg, but eBayers are not those people. You can buy that same necklace for $30.7. Research!!! Just because people are asking for $200 doesn’t mean it is selling for more then $20.8. "You never find what you are looking for, but you always find something.” Diversify!!! Just like the stockmarket. Make sure you are not getting stuck in a niche hole. 9. A quality camera is a must. Leave the grainy pictures to the old maids selling one or two house hold items.10. Henry Ford was right. Set up a production line means of listing. Nothing is more valuable then time and you loose a lot doing one product at a time. Make a pile, clean, take pictures, list.
I look forward to seeing your videos every week cause you give me such insight as to what sells out there! I'm a new seller and just getting into buying for my store, so thank you!
thanks. i'm glad to hear it, i will keep making them!
These are really helpful, because there is always something surprising that I never would have thought to look for while picking. I had my mom watch the What Sells videos and she was floored! She went home and started digging through family members' basements and encouraging them to sell on eBay (or to let me do it for a split).
Nervous Nellie here. I know I'm being paranoid but I sold a concert shirt to a guy who said he was planning on wearing it to a concert on Friday. So far he's yet to leave me feedback and I fear he's just going to wear it to the show and then complain about it and want a return. It was an expensive shirt. Do I have any rights in the event this happens? On another nervous front I sold some high dollar bedding that I've also yet to get feedback from. Back in the day I would feel ok about it since most unhappy people would complain right away but now eBay makes them wait a few days before they can leave negative fb. High dollar sales make me nervous.
Hi Nervous Nellie--We have a 2-4% return rate no matter what we do. Most are on low dollar items which is why we try to avoid the lower end items if we can. If you've been selling for any length of time, trust the actual return numbers. I bet you have about the same return rate. You'll drive yourself crazy is you consistently worry over each transaction about something that hasnt even happened yet. Peace out, Chill Out Charlie.
Also important to note that you may never get feedback for your sales. Since eBay has allowed non-registered users to make purchases, my feedback rate is down to around 33% of all sales. If that's what you base things on, you're going to be nervous about 2 of every 3 transactions.
Ohmygoodness. Get a grip. Do you worry like that about everything? LOL you are going to have to get a "real" job to avoid ulcers. Seriously, why do you even care if you get FB? No FB is considered the same as five stars according to Griff at ebay. So I am thrilled to get no feedback any time enjoy ebay and don't take it too seriously. It isn't brain surgery. No one can destroy your business if you just do the best you can do and don't let the turkeys get you down. :-). And if you put a 20% restocking fee on returns you won't even care when they return things.
Geez Linda don't bite my head off please. I only want the fb as happy customer indicator so I know I won't be getting a 400 dollar return request. That's a lot of money for me.
Hi Nellie, well it was bound to happen to me sooner or later. I have been selling for about a year now and have not had even 1 complaint from customers. But then it happened. I sold a Patagonia shirt to a lady. Then I get a message from her. She starts out like this..."The shirt you sold me smells horrible!!!" She asks, what is the history of this shirt, where was it stored, what did you wash it in or spray on it to make smell so bad? I wrote back and told her I was sorry she had a problem with the shirt. I also told her I kept the shirt in a room that had a vanilla scented air freshener it it because I like that scent. I simply offered to gladly give her a complete refund if she wanted to sent it back to me. I also said if she wanted to keep the shirt I would give her half of her money back. I again apologized and asked how she would like to handle it. I never heard back from here and it's been over a week now. I don't know what to make of this, I guess she just likes to complain. My work area is in my basement hence the scented air freshener but I thought it would be better than maybe having clothes smell like a basement. I don't notice a basement like odor down here but then you can get nose blind sometimes. Does anyone else work and store items in their basement and how do you handle that problem. I have sold a lot of clothes and no one else has ever complained. So for now I guess I'll just keep doing what I have been doing.
Sorry, Nellie. I had no idea it was a $400 shirt! That's quite a sale. But if it sold once for that it will sell again. In fact, maybe you could get more? And be sure to add that 20% restocking fee.
I agree with Linda. No feedback is good.
I meant getting no feedback is good.
This seems like a dumb question but how are you shipping books? They sound cheap until I realize they never fit in my bubble envelopes and weight makes them heavy. If I do media I have to find a box which is tricky. I always good up on selling books.
my small books go into bubble mailers. but the bigger ones i usually just wrap a big cardboard box around it. make it stable and that's a good shell for media mail.
So you just make a box? That might be what I do then.
Hi Anon. I get boxes from my local grocery store from the "cheese" section. They are just the right size for books and are sturdy.
I have so much fun going through your stores, looking at all the newly listed items. It's always such random stuff that I get a lot of entertainment from looking at the items. It's so much fun, and I cannot even imagine where or how you find the sorts of things that you find, Jay and Ryanne!
This is an exciting upcoming estate sale. It's Maya Angelou's estate. She died last year. One of her most famous books was I know why the caged bird sings. She was also a professor at Wake Forest. I expect it to be crowded and the good thing is no matter what you buy you can say it was owned by Maya Angelou. Certainly doesn't hurt sales!
she's got some nice Vuitton luggage!
I've actually seen the outside of both of her houses and so I'm not sure which one the estate sale is going to be in. One house is smaller and that's where she had students over for classes and the other one is expensive and gated. After she died there were a lot of celebrities around her fancy house. Oprah was even there. I'm sure the best stuff has been removed for family or for a more expensive online auction. I've read comments on the auction site from people all over the US who plan on coming to the estate sale. It should be interesting to say the least. I was never a big Maya fan but understand her significance.
Yesterday I received a letter in the mail from a customer I sold a pair of shoes to back in January. The note is on the packing slip asking if I have any more in the same size and to email him. I just thought it strange that he sent a letter snail mail to ask me to email him when he could have contacted me through ebay. Not sure if I should email back, just ignore, or message through ebay. They were men's Black Skechers Shape Ups by the way I have sold a few of these and every time I see them and they are in good shape I'll buy.
Jamie - Maybe they were not sure what information they needed to send you from the packing slip so they just sent the whole slip. They could have scanned it and emailed it to you, but maybe they didn't know how. So, maybe they were just trying give as much information as they could in their own way.
If you have more of the item you want to sell, send him a message through eBay. I think there's still a generation that still writes letters and notes.
i had a guy a couple months ago call me just to tell me he liked the boots i sent. i was so confused. i was like, um is there a problem with your purchase? he's like, "no i love them!" i had to do a double take.
Ryanne, that happened to me this week, too! A man called me from another state to tell me his pkg had arrived safely and he was very happy with it! I was amazed by his kindness he said he sells on Ebay too and just wanted to let me know. And I got an email from another customer saying how thrilled she was and what a fantastic packing job I did. It felt surreal, in a wonderful way.

I'm new to discovering your what sells videos and as someone who likes to find the unique/quirky items, your videos are the most relatable to me out of other resellers videos which feature video games, electronics etc. Thank you again for bringing us such great material
Hi! I recently found you guys through reddit and I've been enjoying your What Sold on Ebay videos. I'm sad to see that your YouTube account is suspended and I hope it gets straightened out soon! Thanks for all the interesting content and information you share! =)
I don't understand how that can possibly happen!
