Best find last week: vintage pocket camp stove by Optiums Made in Sweden. Complete in box. Paid about $1.50 at Goodwill. Honestly, i just grabbed it. Didn’t even look it up. Just sold for $85. Took less than 24 hours to sell.
I’m worried about the glut of clothing sellers. These people will burn out. Brands come in & out of style. Prices go up & down. A really think a lot of the people who shop at the bins are getting lower quality items.
I basically pay myself a salary. I transfer the same amount every Sunday from PayPal into my personal checking account. I make sure I can pay my eBay fees (just keep reminding myself that the higher the number means the more stuff i sold). After that everything else goes back into the business for both supplies and inventory. I find it really important to budget how much i spend in inventory every week. Its ok to break it every once in a while; but, it is generally a helpful guideline.
