Hi Steve – Do you do a video for any listing you think it will help, or do you have a minimum value? Recording and uploading one takes some time, but you did it for a $35 radio. Just wondering whether you consider that when deciding on doing a video or not.
This Christmas serving platter sold for $15, and I paid less than $1. The interesting thing about it was the message I received from the buyer: please pack this as if monkeys are going to have a party with an elephant… I live on steep switchback winding roads in Colorado you have to bubblewrap it over & over again & keep it away from the sides of the box. I get things smashed to pieces all the time use a big box with tons of padding good luck please believe me
I think maybe she has had some bad experiences with other eBay sellers? I received positive feedback with a message that it was packaged well.
I’ve been listing jewelry from my one commission. I still have a pile left of items I want to test to make sure they are real before I list. These are the one type of item that is giftable in my inventory, so I’ve selling quite a bit. This bracelet was pretty nice, and I probably sold it too low, but it was part of my 25% off sale plus a offer to watcher. It sold for $39 and was shipped to Israel.
I purchased a stereo a few years ago that sat in a death pile because I wanted to fix it. I finally decided that I didn’t have the time, so I separated out the speakers and stereo, and the speakers sold for $28. The total I paid was $4. Hopefully, the stereo sells soon.
I paid less than $1 for a vintage but newer Sony Walkman. Sold for $26. The buyer sent one of those messages “do not include the invoice and pack securely please”, so maybe a drop shipper?
I thought this was a very interesting buy. I was in Florida a few years ago and went to a flea market. This is a box of very old optical lenses I assume for making glasses. Purchased for $5 and sold on offer for $40. I was going to counteroffer for $50, but I was having dinner at my in-laws, and my SIL suggested just accepting it since it had sat for a few years with no interest. She’s not wrong.
I guess this is a BOLO. A set of vintage art lights sold for $36. They aren’t something I thought was a big deal. I got these for free from one of my parents’ friends.
A collection of vintage Snoopy items I received free from the same friend of my parents. Sold for best offer of $50 (I did counteroffer from $40 on this one. I guess my SIL wasn’t there to convince me otherwise).
A bracelet and necklace that I agreed to ship direct to Australia (using Pirate Ship simple export rates) for $48 plus $12 shipping. These are also from my one commission.
Lastly, my big sale on Etsy. This is one of two antique bourbon jugs I bought with about 150 whiskey pitchers and bottle at a live auction in Sept 2019. I paid around $29 for all of them, and I’ve used up my COGS on that a year or more ago. The first of these antique jugs sold on eBay for $90. This one sold for $106 with included shipping that came to about $8, so about $98 for the bottle.

Sharyn, I usually don’t take into consideration the asking price when determining to make a video although I probably wouldn’t make the effort on $20 or less. It’s more a matter of showing functionality.
The insertion of a video process is second nature to me now and takes very little time to record and upload.
