What better way to start the weekend than with a giant, highly profitable score that included hundreds of limited edition collectibles, figurines, Funko Pops, Godard framed prints And two Godard Jazz Martini Sculptures! One of Which is signed by the man himself Michael Godard! All of it for one super low price of $475.00!
When everything is said and done the one autographed Godard sculpture should sell for around $1000. The other Godard sculpture should sell for close to $300. The additional hundreds of collectible sculptures, figures and toys are all going to be extras, one big fat giant bonus!
I know allot of resellers who almost exclusively depend on thrift shops like Goodwill and The Salvation Army for inventory. If this is you, you are selling yourself short! Don’t get me wrong, I love thrift store shopping and I do make many nice, profitable picks from thrift shops all the time. Though if your looking to really take things to the next level you have to start focusing your energy on other sources that hold much more potential for you. Estate sales, auctions, moving sales, liquidation sales and so on!
Just some friendly advice from someone who’s been there and done that. In fact in the beginning 95% of my merchandise and collectibles were coming from thrift stores. My online sales didn’t really take off until I started hitting auctions and liquidation sales. As a bonus with each auction, or estate sale purchase comes additional contacts, resources and suppliers to network with. You wont find that at your local thrift shop.
So most of this merchandise from this haul will be sold off on one of my Ebay accounts. I expect the Godard merchandise to sell relatively quickly. In fact I would be surprised if these sculptures did’t sell within a week or two of listing them. Godard’s a fairly popular guy and his work is very desirable.
In fact i believe the majority of these collectibles should sell within the first month, or two of being listed. If they don’t, no biggie either. I am confident that the majority worth listing will all sell eventually.
In addition to the valuable comes the invaluable! There are also quite a few pieces in this haul that I wont even bother listing. Those will be donated to Goodwill, or given to the our neighbors kids. This is also to be expected in a larger haul like this! Seems like most purchases I make there are always a few items that sell right away which cover my up front costs, plus a healthy profit. The remained of the lot is sold off incrementally, or stored away for listing at later date, or like I just mentioned disposed of. The last thing I want is a bunch of worthless shit laying around my place. So if it isn’t worth listing it needs to go!
Anyway, I am going to start posting regularly here detailing different aspects of making money online via reselling and also affiliate marketing. Seeings that this is not exactly a professional forum and more or less my personal blog I will also be posting allot of astrophotography, photography and other art that I do.
Peace out people and until next time!
