Never Let Personal Taste Get in the Way of Your Profits

Recently a close friend asked me to sell a pair of never-worn bell-bottom pants that she bought almost 40 years ago to wear to a pool party that she never attended. I perked up to this request, as bell bottoms were the thing to wear in the 70s, and I myself lived in bell bottoms back then. I replied to her request, “Let’s have a look; vintage clothing does sell.”

The Perfect Transaction

What is the perfect transaction? The customer sees an item or several items in my shop, they order and pay immediately, then I pack and mail the goods, refunding extra postage. They email or phone after receiving the items. Of course we all have had many perfect customers. They make selling online a pleasure.

Consider Flea Market Selling to Move Items

It happens to all of us who trade in “general line” collectibles and lower end antiques – at some point we realize we’ve amassed too many items that we don’t want to keep. Many are boxlot leftovers or victims of the struggling economy. Maybe some are years-ago purchases whose value has drastically plummeted, that we’ve been holding onto hoping for a rise from the ashes. They are not right for a tag sale and won’t work as individual auction consignments. Perhaps they haven’t sold in your online store or brick-and-mortar space, or you can’t auction them yourself online. At this point, you’re pushing yourself to do something before your family accuses you of being a hoarder!
