UTILIKILT WORKMAN Style Tan Men's Kilt 38 S – sold $222.50 – paid $1.25
A couple weeks ago I found these men’s kilts at the SA (read my previous post here). They were mixed in with the women’s skirts, and at first I also thought they were skirts. They were very heavy, and I thought maybe they were part of a costume.
I quickly pulled out my handy-dandy android smart phone and checked the Utilikilt website. Holy moly, these men’s kilts retail for $200-$300! And, there wasn’t just one, but eight of these. I paid $10 for the lot of 8 … or $1.25 for each!
When I got home, I checked the eBay listings. There were only a handful of active listings and most had bids. Good! Then I checked the completed listings. There were also a handful, but best of all? They had all sold! I knew then I had stumbled onto a “goldmine”.
I also discovered an upcoming event called The Burning Man. Excuse my ignorance about this event, but apparently kilts are popular among participants. This event takes place end of this month and is already sold out. So I knew I had to list my kilts pronto in case anyone attending was looking for a kilt.
The auctions ended last night and the GRAND TOTAL … drum roll please:
Yup, that’s over $1,000, folks, for a $10 purchase! They sold between $117.50 and $232.50 each. The two pictured above are the highest sellers.
AND, that’s not all: they are ALL PAID! Eight different buyers paid within 24 hours! I packed them up this morning and delivered them to the post office earlier today. How about that?!
Now, I wait and hope everyone’s happy with their purchase. I was very specific that there would be no returns on these, but ya never know.
This by far is my best flip ever … even better than the mother lode of vintage high school yearbooks that netted almost $300 (read my previous post here). Now I can pay my car registration! Yippee!
