Enamored by a vintage sweater.
I bought this cute vintage sweater at the Salvation Army recently for resale. It was my size so I thought I would model it a little bit for the Ebay listing.
I flipped the image so that the front was readable since it would have been backwards as this pic was taken in a mirror.
But when I tried it on, I fell in love with it. It is adorable. I’m really into black and white and blue this year. And as soon as I tried it on I considered whether or not I wanted to sell it. I decided to go ahead and get it listed, but that I would list it high and still wear it. If it sells at that high price (I listed it at $59.99 or best offer), at least I got to wear it (since I’m selling it as pre-owned vintage).
Hubby was worried that I might spill something on it and stain it? If that happens, then I will just take down the listing. And if it does sell for what I’m asking or a decent price..I will let it go.
The most expensive vintage sweaters selling on Ebay.
This got me thinking about how much vintage sweaters are going for on Ebay. Especially the highest priced ones. And I wasn’t surprised to discover that they are Coogi sweaters. For those not familiar with Coogi, that is the brand of sweaters that Bill Cosby used to wear on his show. And they sell for really good money. You can see the completed sales on ebay HERE.
And the ones that sell for the most money right now is this one:
Animal themed vintage Coogi sweater.
Coogi sweaters are also popular for Halloween Costume ugly sweaters. Well, they don’t actually have to be exactly Coogi brand sweaters, but ones that look similar. I sold one a few years ago for about $40 right before Halloween.
Coogi sweaters are back!
Retro styles have been really popular in the last couple of years and in 2014 Coogi came back with an awesome redesign of their sweater. I could never spend $ on a new sweater, but if I saw this one at a thrift, I’d definitely pick it up for either resale or myself (especially being black and white).
Another sweater that sells for a good price.
Another great one to keep your eye out for resale inventory are Hilda sweaters. I sold this one back in 2014.
This sweater was purchased at a thrift store for $4.99. I accepted a best offer of $80 (shipped in legal flat rate envelope..$5.35 ish). Found this Men’s sweater in the women’s section.
The really interesting thing about Hilda sweaters is that this company went out of business over 20 years ago. The reason? Their sweaters were so well made that they lasted for over 20 years. Once you bought one, you had no need for another one.
You can also see the ones that have sold on Ebay HERE. Mine went for more because it was still new with tags.
I wish my Most blue sweater went for this kind of money. But it is pretty unique as I haven’t found another one quite like it. Will it sell? I wonder.
Do you sell sweaters on Ebay? What are your favorite brands?
