My plan is to cross-list items on Ebay and Etsy to get more eyes on them. Some of the resellers I follow say this works for them. We'll see. The only real hassle is to end the listing on the other site when an item sells.
So what tipped me over the edge? This item:
I found it at a thrift store today for $3. It is a doll from the '50s made with ladies' hankies. The label says it was "Designed and Create by Neiman-Marcus Packaging Staff." According to my research, these were made for women to put on their vanities. The only similar one I found was listed on Etsy for $125. Soon, there will be two!
Another first is that I listed some items on Amazon Merchant Fulfilled. I tried FBA about a year ago, but didn't like the idea of paying Amazon to store items. I don't plan to shop for new goods just to send in, but I do like the idea of selling books on the site.
Crossing my fingers that this experiment increases sales.
Happy thrifting. ~Lisa
