I really enjoy selling shoes on Ebay. I’ve sold quite a few this year. Here are the most recent ones I’ve sold:
I took a best offer of $50 plus shipping for these boots. Purchased for $2 dollars at a garage sale.
You can make a really nice chunk of change selling shoes on Ebay. Jay and Ryanne from Scavenger Life made money and bought a rental home from the proceeds of selling old shoes and clothes on Ebay. Miriam from Blue Frog Shoes on Ebay sells tons of shoes, upwards of $10K a month. I know she has more accounts, I’m only aware of this one. She also has a blog called The Ebay Life Blog, but it doesn’t seem to be working. She hasn’t posted much in the last year and I’m guessing she’s too busy to post now.
You can also pick shoes up pretty inexpensively at garage sales. Even our Goodwill is pretty good. Shoes are usually between $3.99 – $6.99. But I usually buy mine for either $1 or $2 tops at garage sales. All of the shoes pictured in this post were picked up for $2.
Shoes usually take a little more time to clean (especially sneakers). A good seller of sneakers is Meinard over at Thrift Store Reseller. He knows his sneakers!
I like to pick up shoes that are mint. Even so, it’s important to take good photos showing all angles of the shoes and any imperfections.
This was a pair that I also took a best offer of $50 for. Unfortunately, I had to refund the buyer because when I pulled them from storage (had them for about 6 months), I noticed that the leather was coming apart from one of the back straps. I have a shoe glue somewhere, so I will repair them and then resell. But it sucks having to give back $50.
Here are a couple more pairs that I’ve sold recently.
Took a bo of $24.99 plus shipping on the above.Took a bo of $28.99 plus shipping on these.
I had a large container of shoes and have only 2 pairs of the ones I’ve listed that haven’t sold. I know some people shy away from shoes, but really, they are a great item to resell.
You guys sell shoes? If not, how come?
