My eBay store is everythingvintagesteph.com on eBay. I have almost 900 items listed. I started out selling vintage and antique items but now about 80% of my listings are clothing. It just works out better for me as far as consistent sales and easily found merchandise. This is a typical example of what I have listed. This is a used camo hoodie in like new condition. Bought for about 1.00. Listed for 17.00 (with free postage). from HANES.

How do I find the merchandise? Anyone can do what I do as long as you can travel to thrift stores and shopping malls! This little black dress from Express was found at the Goodwill clearance store where all the clothing is sold from bins for 79 cents a pound. I could go there any day of the week and find at least 50 pieces of clothing in a few hours. Bought for less than 1.00 and selling for 18.00. I include free postage with all items and mail first class or the 5.00 flat rate padded mail bag.

Along with the thrift shops, I also shop regular retail and outlet stores. It’s called “retail arbitrage.” I bought this Disney hoodie for 5.00. Regular price is 49.95. It’s in my eBay store for 25.00 and probably won’t last long!

 I was at Walmart last week and saw these skirts on clearance for 1.00! I bought 5 of them. They are all in the plus sizes which seem to sell very quickly. Regular price was 18.00 so someone is still getting a great bargain from me!

So if you are a thrifty shopper, just look around you for the bargains! If you are good at finding bargains for yourself, you can find even more bargains to sell for others. Just found this awesome Longaberger basket vest at the Goodwill clearance bins! A rare find!
