First and foremost, I will say that lately, my bread n' butter has been Pyrex, but mostly because it is easy to spot at most stores and I think it is so beautiful. Now I recognize I shouldn't be falling in love with my inventory, but stuff happens! I don't really like to look for clothes, but I picked up an older looking Nordstrom vest from the thrift last night, pictures to come. Lots of people are great with clothes, I think my eye for clothes would be limited to vintage things I think are cute, and just hope other people would agree!
Anyways, here were some really great answers people had, that I have had success with as well.
1. Mugs- They are usually cheap at the thrift, and there's usually lots to sift through!
|Fire King mug I sold recently, cute little design.|
|This is a mug by Taylor & Ng that I sold over the holidays.|
3. Full Pyrex sets- I have to admit, I am having trouble on ebay with single Pyrex pieces. I think it takes either having an ebay store (which I do not yet) or re-listing many times. Full sets however, are almost always a huge hit!
4. Purses- Some people do designer purses, but I am not sure how to verify authenticity with confidence, so I try to stay away from them. I do love stocking up on vintage purses, my bread n' butter of purses is always woven leather.
|This was also a really neat purse that got a lot of attention on Etsy. It sold during my Etsy promotion!|
|Rollers are a good seller, but make sure they work and are clean!|
|Everyone loves globes! I have been eyeballing one at the Goodwill, hoping it will go 50% off...|
|Cool, old boxes. This one was favorited a lot on Etsy and sold quickly|
|Vintage hardware gets a lot of attention on Etsy.|
So what about you all out there who I haven't heard from on Ebay Underground? What's your bread n' butter?!
