Today is Tuesday and that means it’s time for my Bargain Bandit episode. Every week, I share information about some of my recent sales, show off some favorite picks, and shout out to fellow you-tubers I enjoy watching. I really enjoying doing these shows and would love to hear what other people think.

As promised in the episode, here’s a bonus item that I recently sold!

Bible 1971 (1) Bible 1971 (2) Bible 1971 (3) Bible 1971 (4) Bible 1971 (5) Bible 1971 (6)

Bibles don’t have to be 60 years old to sell well. This is a Living Bible, Red Letter Edition, Paraphrased that was released in 1983 by Tyndale House Publishers. It contains both the Old and New Testament. Some of the pages have slight creasing to them and the cover has a few marks. There is writing on the inside, in the form of an inscription.

I pick up bibles like this whenever I see them and they always sell. The worst the condition, though, the harder to sell. This one is in fairly good condition, but with the writing on it and the newness of the item, it did take a while to sell. I had it listed for $17.88 and took an offer of $15. I only paid $.50 for this bible. Media mail is super cheap so the shipping on this item is very low (and as a result, fees on shipping are low too, always a good thing.) My total profit on this item after everything was $11.96. Not too shabby!

Today is Tuesday and that means it’s time for my Bargain Bandit episode. Every week, I share information about some of my recent sales, show off some favorite picks, and shout out to fellow you-tubers I enjoy watching. I really enjoying doing these shows and would love to hear what other people think.

As promised in the episode, here’s a bonus item that I recently sold!

Belt Buckle

I’ve only ever bought one storage locker and in the locker, there were some interesting items. Most of the stuff I ended up selling at a yard sale (it was a lot of clothes and boots), but there were a few items I did think would be better for eBay. This was one of them and I’ve had it up a few months, but it finally sold, albeit not for much. It was a metal belt buckle with a small Iron Cross on it and shaped like a shooting flame.

We set this item’s cost at $1 (even though we’ve already more than made our money off that storage unit). We sold it for $6.99 plus shipping and our total profit after fees and shipping was $5.21. It was really cheap to ship!

How-To Wednesdays: eBay Shipping

10
by on January 2, 2013 at 10:44 pm

Every Wednesday, we’ll do a short how-to where we’ll tackle a topic in the reselling space and try to give clarity on it. eBay and other selling platforms, as well as picking itself, can be daunting. If you have a topic you would like to see in the How-To Wednesday topic, please leave comments and we will try to add it to the schedule. Thanks for reading!

usps-logoShipping through eBay is easy! I’ll say it again, shipping through eBay is easy! You only need a printer and half-sheet labels. If you don’t have half-sheet labels or would prefer to use plain paper, you can do that too! I do like the convenience of self-adhesing half-sheet labels. To make it easy, here’s a link to a listing on eBay that I buy labels from. You can get labels from this same vendor in differing amounts. The listing I linked is for 400 labels (200 sheets). You can start out with 100 sheets, or if you expect to do a lot of volume, you can buy them in even greater quantities. It’s free shipping, too!

Now that you have a printer and your paper or labels, what’s next?

When you set up a listing, you can choose from a variety of shipping methods. I prefer using calculated shipping, but it doesn’t really matter which method you use. Once the item has sold, you will have an option to ‘print shipping label’. When you click that, you will be taken to the shipping label screen. Here, you will have many options to choose from.

The first thing you will need to decide is if you want to use USPS or Fedex to ship. Recently, Fedex has become an option and in some cases, Fedex will be cheaper than even parcel post, and quicker too! If you choose Fedex, you will only need to put in the weight of the item and it will default to home delivery. The price is generally not cheaper unless you are shipping more than 4 lbs. At 4 lbs and above, depending on where the item is shipping to, Fedex may be a better option. The only downside is that you have to take it in to a Fedex drop facility, whereas with USPS, you can schedule a pickup if you know a day ahead of time you need them to come by.

If you decide to ship USPS, which will likely be the way you ship with most of your packages, you will need to know the weight of your item. If you are shipping internationally, first class, be sure to get the exact weight as first class international charges are based on a per ounce rate up to 4 pounds. For first class domestic, it’s only up to 13 ounces, but again on a per ounce weight. Shipping parcel post or Priority Mail via USPS is done per pound, so a package that is 2 pounds 1 ounce will be the same cost as a package that is 2 pounds 15 ounces. Keep that in mind when choosing your packing materials and box.

FedEx_Home_Delivery-logo-8753240591-seeklogo.comOnce you have put in the weight of your item and selected your shipping method, all you have to do is click either create label (Fedex) or Purchase Postage (USPS.) With USPS, if you are a new seller and are still in your holding period, where Paypal holds your money for a certain time, you will be given an option of paying later. This is great, since the money for the shipping won’t be taken out until the money you were paid actually clears. Otherwise, the payment for the shipping will be immediately removed from Paypal funds.

On the next screen, you will be given an option to print the label. Clicking that will bring up a window where you can adjust your margins, which is great if you are shipping smaller boxes. Otherwise, you just click print and voila, you have a label all ready to be affixed to your package.

In a future how-to, I will go over the different options for USPS shipping. I hope you found this helpful. Please comment and leave any questions you might have. Thanks for reading!

Games You Should Pick #5: Guess Who

14
by on December 31, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Hi everyone!

I thought since board games are my specialty, I would do a Game of the Week feature where I talk about a different board game and why you should be picking it up. We’ll call this feature Games You Should Pick. To make this interesting, I’m only going to talk about games I’ve actually managed to find and sell. There’s all kinds of games you should be looking out for, like Fireball Island and Dark Tower, but I haven’t managed to find either of those yet!

This week’s game is Guess Who.

Guess Who (1)

Guess Who? is a children’s game that originated across the sea in Great Britain in 1979. The first U.S. release was in 1982. It’s an incredibly popular and fun game that children of any age and even adults can enjoy playing. The objective is to figure out what the hidden card is by asking pointed questions, like does the person have red hair or do they have a mustache? Based on the answer, players flip down cards that couldn’t be the matching card. It’s 20 questions, portrait style.

Because of the popularity of these games, there are a lot of copies out there. However, as it’s primarily a children’s game, good copies are few and far between. Most are missing cards or have damage. Even ones that seem in great condition are often missing the scoring markers. If you do find a complete one, the year of release actually matters very little. This is one case where the older versions actually tend to under perform  compared to the ones from the 1990s. The pricing of this game can be all over the place, as well. At any given time, there can be about 150 copies of this game, in varying versions, up on eBay. Some people just want to sell theirs quickly, so they really undercut the price. But at the same time they are undercutting, people overcharging are selling their copies too. Because it’s a popular game, a lot of them do sell.

Another interesting thing is that because of its popularity, this game is one of those that comes in many themes. There’s a Star Wars theme, a Marvel theme, a Pokemon theme, and many more. The themed versions tend to not perform as well as the original versions, but they will still sell, so it’s worth picking up. There’s also an electronic version of Guess Who? that is not worth that much and does not sell well, so be sure you get those for very cheap.

I’ve sold three copies of Guess Who? in varying versions. The themed version of Guess Who? I’ve sold was a Littlest Pet Shop copy. I sold it with a Littlest Pet Shop Go Fish game as well, for $21.99 with free shipping. My profit on that one ended up being around 9 dollars ,and only because I did include a second themed game. Otherwise, it would have sold for less. The other two were non themed versions. They were the 2002 release (shown above) and the 1996 release (shown below.) I did better on the newer release, selling that one for $12.99 plus shipping and clearing about $10 profit. On the 1996 release, there were some pretty big condition issues, so I sold that one for $20.99 with shipping and made about $8 profit.

Highlighted eBay Post: Screaming Eagles

10
by on December 28, 2012 at 7:47 pm

In this weekly feature, which will be posted every Thursday, I will talk about a current listing of mine. I’ll explain why it’s a good pick-up and why it might still be for sale on eBay in an attempt to help other people understand the process of selling on eBay and the items I pick up. Please comment and let me know what you think!

Screaming Eagles eBay listing

Screaming Eagles Board Game (1) Screaming Eagles Board Game (2)

Screaming Eagles is an air combat game for 2-4 players. Play alone or as a team and be the first to shoot down all enemy aircraft. There are four squadrons to choose from: Eagle, Cobra, Stallion and Tiger, separated into two colors, blue and tan. It was released in 1987 by Milton Bradley.

This is one of those games that has fallen through the cracks for me. Once upon a time, I experimented with Good Until Cancelled, and this was one of the items I did that with. My advice: never do that! First, it apparently severely affects how the listing appears in the search results. And second, doing that could cause you to forget about the item and tweaking the listing is an important part of getting an item sold.

This copy of Screaming Eagles is in good condition. The box is in good condition, with no repairs or splits or tape marks. There is a dirt stain on the top left corner of the top of the box. There is visible shelf wear. The interior contents are in very good condition, but it is missing one blue peg, which is not a critical component to playing the game (there is a large supply of blue pegs.) The original instructions are included.

The reason this game has not sold yet is probably mostly due to the fact I had it as a Good Until Cancelled listing. I also had a very high price point with no ability to make offers. Even though on first look, this game appears to be highly collectible, the demand for it is actually very low, and there’s a pretty good supply of this game out there. Today, I cancelled the listing and re-listed it for a lower price point for 30 days fixed price, with the ability for buyers to make offers. Hopefully this will get it sold!

With this price point, I’m looking at a pure profit of $13-14 dollars. Unfortunately, shipping costs on this game are pretty high. It’s a 4 pound game, so the fees I’m going to have pay on shipping costs will amount to a few dollars. Regardless, it should still net me some decent money, although it may still take a while to sell.

UPDATE on last week’s Highlighted eBay Post: Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone Levitating Challenge

I’m 2 out of 3 now with selling my highlighted posts! The St. Louis-in-a-Box hasn’t sold yet, but the Harry Potter Levitating Challenge sold the day after I posted about it (on Friday). It sold for $10.99 plus shipping, so I’ll make a few dollars on it when all is said and done. Interestingly enough, the buyer didn’t pay for the Priority Mail shipping method on this one, so they didn’t need it for Christmas. It arrived the 27th via Parcel Post.

Games You Should Pick #4: The Stock Market Game

6
by on December 26, 2012 at 3:39 am

Hi everyone!

I thought since board games are my specialty, I would do a Game of the Week feature where I talk about a different board game and why you should be picking it up. We’ll call this feature Games You Should Pick. To make this interesting, I’m only going to talk about games I’ve actually managed to find and sell. There’s all kinds of games you should be looking out for, like Fireball Island and Dark Tower, but I haven’t managed to find either of those yet!

This week’s game is The Stock Market Game.

Stock Market Game (1)

Stock Market Game: The Aristocrat of Money Games is a family game for 2 to 8 players. The goal is to have the most capital by strategically buying and selling shares of stock at constantly changing prices. The first person to $100,000 wins the game. It was published by Western Publishing Company in 1968.

This game was a popular buy in its time. As such, there’s quite a few of them out there on the market, but many of them are not in the greatest of condition. It was not only popular to buy the year it was released, but it was played like crazy by those who got it. There were two other release years of this game. The 1963 version is actually worth less than this year’s, but there are fewer of the 1963 year out there, and if you can find one in great condition, it might be worth quite a bit. The 1981 release is worth about the same amount as the 1968 release.

I have sold two copies of the 1968 release of this game. The first one was in poor condition. It was well played with and the box has a lot of condition issues. I was able to sell it for $20 plus shipping.  The second one was in much better condition. The box had very few issues and the game did not appear to be handled very much. Because of the lack of condition issues, this one was a much better sale. I was able to sell it for $40 plus shipping. Also, because of the better condition, it sold much faster. This is the truth for any type of board game, the better the condition, the faster it will sell!
