Hi. Love watching your videos. I’m trying to clear the clutter from my house, but I have been inspired to do the reselling as I am not working full time at the moment. What is your eBay seller name so I can go check out your shop. Thanks.
Hi AppleJade 😊 I think eBay is great for clearing clutter and once you’ve done some of that then reselling will be the next step! I don’t give out my shop name publicly but with a bit of detective work you will be able to find it if you know how to find sold listings on eBay 😉
Definitely not looking for quick sales at least not yet. I haven’t listed the bag yet but I will aim high as that seems to be what everyone thinks. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and watch my video 😊
Hi chick, really enjoying your videos. I just quit my job to concentrate on my ebay. I had a surprise with one of my charity shop finds. Bought some barely used Frye ankle boots for £6 and found they are still retailing over £600 🤭.
Karin makesandresells Fisher Oh my God - the shoes!! I have so many pairs now 😂🙈 The children’s clothes was a bit of a punt simply because they cost me pennies. It will be interesting to see what happens with them.... Thanks for watching!!
Hi. Great video! Can you make video how you packing sold glasware becose Im scery to pock glass up. About children clothing im try first time ass well but i made next dress challange and list 3 of them for auction finish next sunday from 1£ and will see how its go. Have good week
You seem to have good charity shops near you. All the ones by us seem too expensive especially clothing items. I don’t have much luck with clothes unless it’s kids coats or boots, or women’s sportswear. I have sold a few vintage dresses. I love the vintage Mickey Mouse duvet set, I don’t think that will hang around for long. Always love your videos. Anne
Yes, I’m lucky to have a fairly cheap on in my town and then a super cheap one where my dad lives so I can combine a visit with some sourcing! Clothing is an odd one, I’m trying out all different items and brands just to see what I enjoy selling and what actually sells for the most profit - it’s early days for sure! So glad you like the videos x
Good shopping Mel. I haven't ventured into glassware as I am too scared it will break in the post. I haven't had much success with childrens items either, except for the high end expensive brands, but even then they took a LONG time to sell, and the return wasn't great. I find dresses and boots do best for me. BUT..... I am in Australia, and I know the fashion trends are quite different over here. Our style is a lot more casual than over there.
Yes, children’s items are a new one for me and am only giving it a go because I can pick them up for pennies. I’m not convinced it’s either lucrative or enjoyable but I am trying out pretty much every category on eBay 😂😂
Mel, those slippers are from the movie PLANES. Here's a link to some on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=DISNEY+STORE+PLANES+SLIPPERS+Avail+in+Sizes+Child+7-8%2C+9-10+%26+11-12+BNWT&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=DISNEY+STORE+PLANES+SLIPPERS+&_sacat=0
Hi Mel, you've got another fab load of stuff there. Your charity shops seem a lot cheaper than mine. But... I bit the bullet and bought 2 items to sell on. Like you I think I paid too much for them. The clothes in my local shops seem really dear. Keep it up and keep making videos as it has encouraged me to be more adventurous.
Thanks Mel, I've been selling my old tat for years (since 16 Sept 2003 😮), but with varying degrees of success. Watching videos like yours has given me some very much needed pointers and is making me really want to be a proper reseller 🤩 xx
Oh good, I’m glad you bought something! I think the only way to learn is to make mistakes and do you know what I’m discovering... If something is good quality and/or sought after sometimes it pays to pay up a bit. Don’t get too disheartened if the items don’t sell straight away. I only started getting semi-regular sales once I got to 100 listings. Try topping up with lots of things of your own that you’d like to get rid of so you can safely test the process and not lose anything. Good luck xxx
Fab haul again with lots of variety. The childrens bits, especially the Peppa T.shirt and Mothercare trousers could be saved and made into a bundle perhaps? I just remember selling off the twins clothes on ebay (many moons ago) and would do a bundle of says boys 6-12 months and girls 6-12 months. If you get the bits cheap enough you should get a good return. My bundles used to go for a fair bit at auction xxx
I would definitely agree with selling kids clothes in bundles. Whenever I’m buying kids clothes on eBay I look for bundles or sellers who are willing to combine postage on multiple items.
I also find that when I bundle up they sell quicker and for more.
I would up the coat. If it is in good condition with no fading, or bad signs of wear - definately try for a bit more £18.99 even. As I said their coats are not cheap and are getting more expensive actually. It is also very cute, with the ladybird theme so I think it will catch peoples eye xxx
Lisa Currie I think I’ve listed the Ladybird coat for £12 - do you think I should put it up. The duck down one had a broken zip which I didn’t check - not a great loss as it cost about 16p! The green Next skirt is listed too. Don’t worry about teaching me to suck eggs - that’s impossible at the moment as I know nothing about selling kids clothes! Will only buy bundle fodder from the cheapest of cheap charity shops 😁
Snazzy shoes Mel - 38 is a 5, 37 is a 4... very matchy matchy! Do check the gloves out because I sold one a few months back - its called a Baseball Mitt or Glove - make is important as if its leather its more dough..
This article has been motivated by a response I gave to a problem raised on an Oracle developer forum. Our requirement is to produce a report that details customer spending for each month of the year. Our database only records actual spend, so for any given month, data for dormant or idle customers will have to be generated.
First, well create a mock CUSTOMER_ORDERS table with sparse data to represent customer spending. To keep the example simple, well denormalise the customer name onto the orders table.
a sparse report.
With our customer orders data as sparse as it is, a monthly report for purchases by customer would look as follows.
adding the missing months.
We can see from the data that we are missing most months of the year for our two customers. Remember that our requirement is to show a report for every month in 2004 for every customer. First we will build a "time dimension" set (using subquery factoring) and outer join it to our orders table.
We can see that this hasnt quite worked. We have the zero sums and the year-months, but we are missing customer names. This is because we outer joined to CUSTOMER_ORDERS on the year-months, so any customer columns would show as NULL for deficient rows. Until PARTITION OUTER JOIN appeared in Oracle 10g, we couldnt "invent" data easily , though the next section shows that it is possible in prior versions.
data-densification without partition outer join.
