We have seen a lot of wonderful tips being shared throughout the community, so I wanted to create a topic where I want everyone to share their top THREE tips they have when selling items.
Maybe it's a tip about photos, specific tips about what to put in descriptions, or maybe a tip on what to look for in a buyer.
Share your top 3 tips for selling below, and remember, only three!
SOOO agree! CLEAN YOUR ITEMS!
and TEST your items if electrical
I always cut the cord off vintage items that are "iffy" and tell the buyer it needs to be rewired. I do not want to be responsible for fires or electrocutions! This is a practice I have long practiced while selling on Ebay/Etsy.
REVEAL KNOWN ISSUES! Scratches, dings, damage, odor*, stains*
*(furniture-I hope you are not selling stained/smelly clothing!)
It is still so sad to see some of the poorly taken/ poorly staged photos. If you display it like a swap meet/garage sale/thrift store those are the prices you can expect as well as low offers. And if you only post ONE photo, with little to none description, expect a million questions.
