BETSEY JOHNSON Women's Beautiful Feminine Floral Print Sleeveless Long Dress LG NWT – paid $3 – sold $59.95
This Betsey Johnson dress is really beautiful (I know the picture kinda sucks). It’s so feminine in a retro style that reminds me of the 1940s. I was glad to get 20 times what I paid for it!
New York Designer Betsey Johnson has been “rocking” the fashion industry with her unique and original designs since the 1960's with her “frilly retro dresses and kooky-sexy separates”.
Reyn Spooner L.A. Dodgers Medium Blue Hawaiian Resort Shirt Men's Size L – paid $2 – sold $19.99
I love Hawaiian shirts. I don’t wear them nor do any of my guys, so what’s a girl to do? Sell them, of course! I started selling them years ago. I did a ton of research and gathered as much info as I could. Then, for one reason or another, I stopped selling shirts, which were the only clothing item I sold at that time. But after my success selling these Disney shirts, I knew it was time to revisit this niche. Stay tuned for a post on Hawaiian shirts …
McCall's 4041 Medieval Renaissance Gown and Headpiece Costume 14-20 NEW – paid $0.75 – sold $22.95
Patterns are another great niche for reselling. You can pick these up for under $1; and depending on the pattern, they resell for some great bucks. Of course, not all patterns are great sellers, but Vogue and costume patterns are good ones to look for. I prefer picking up new uncut patterns because I can be assured all the pieces are there; and they also get higher prices. Stayed tuned for a post on sewing patterns …
I haven’t been listing much so my sales have been rather quiet. I’ve been busy working on our taxes (boring) and haunting the thrift stores (exciting). Will be posting about a few of the great treasures I found.
Happy thrifting and selling!
Believe in yourself and prosper!
