The Numbers: December 18-24, 2022
Happy Holidays everyone! It feel like the year has zipped by…but also that a million different things happened. As people who worked for themselves, the highs and lows are equally inevitable and important.
Good week for us on eBay. Our best sale for a Disneyland pin from the 1970-80s. Ryanne found it in a pile of junk. Sold for $125. Insane. We’re happy to add to someone’s collection.
On the forum, Mark has been talking about his plan to cross-list to multiple platforms including Etsy. According to him, Etsy has really grown and should have better sales. I’m still skeptical if sales will rise for the amount of extra time it takes to list in multiple places (even with the crosslisting fancy tools). But I’m always happy to be wrong. We barely have time to list on eBay.
It is interesting to see Youtube videos and Facebook groups centered around reselling. It’s definitely become a job/business that people can now choose since there’s a clear template to follow. People are so organized and logical. There’s 24-hour zoom hangouts where people list together and talk. Ultimately the fundamentals haven’t changed: always be listing + find a process you can live with day in and day out.
