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!

Clue 1963 Listing

Clue - Old (1)
Clue - Old (2)
Clue - Old (3)

Clue is a classic board game that was originally released in the U.K. as Cluedo in 1949. Since that release, it has seen many versions and spin-offs come to life. This copy is the 1963 release and the third release from Parker Brothers in the United States. It’s the original murder mystery game and will never go out of style.

The biggest issue with selling these games is that they are fairly common, so the market is flooded with them. That said, if you price your game right and you have a pretty decent copy, they do sell.

This copy is in good condition. The box has some condition issues, including a taped up apron and corner and a tear in one side of the top box. The bottom box has two torn corners. An arrow was drawn on the inside of the top box. There is shelf wear.  The interior contents are in good condition. The cards do not look like they have been handled much. The contents are complete and include the game board, six colored tokens, six miniature weapons, one die, 21 cards, the solution cards envelope, and a pad of detective notes. It also comes complete with the original instructions (dated 1950, but these are the instructions that came with this game in that year.) The box also has the original insert in pretty good condition, a neat find as the art on it is fantastic!

The reason I haven’t sold it yet is more than likely my price point at $22.99 with free shipping. I know if I wait for the right person to come along who really wants a game with the original insert and barely used contents, I will get the price I am asking for. Selling board games is often about patience. That said, I do have best offer on the item, so I would take a few dollars less.

With this price point, I’m look at my pure profit to be about $9. I have free shipping on the item and it will cost about $10 to ship to most places. I put free shipping on this so I would be higher in the search listings.

Bargain Bandit Tuesday 1/8/2013

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!

You can view tonight’s Bargain Bandit episode here (or below). Please visit my channel and like and subscribe! You may leave me comments on my YouTube channel or here. Thanks for watching!

Many of you may already know me from my YouTube channel, and if you don’t, click here to be whisked away to a magical place where … ok it’s probably not that great, but click anyway.

If you don’t know me, I’m Staci and I go to yard sales, estate sales, and thrift stores and buy things that I can resell on eBay. I primarily specialize in board games, which are a great passion of mine. I do a YouTube show about my finds and how I’m making money. I have a Facebook page (clickie!) as well.

On YouTube, I have a few different shows that I do. First, every Tuesday, I publish a show called The Bargain Bandit. In this show, I have a few different segments. The first shows off recent sales and what kind of profit I’m making off items after all the fees and other costs are deducted. I then show off three things I recently picked up in my Top 3 favorite finds. I close it off with a Shout Out to a fellow you-tuber I learn things from.

I’ve just started a new show called On the Road with Staci. In this, I take the camera with me and video tape whatever I can while I’m out.

I also do a daily show with The Highland Picker called The Gal Picker Show, For Sale with Tracey and Staci. In this show, Tracey and I go over items we are putting up for sale on eBay. We also read comments and answer questions from our watches. This is a live show that airs at 11 AM Pacific/2 PM Eastern. Try to catch it if you can!

As to what this page is going to be, that’s still in the works. I’m going to try to blog along with my YouTube videos. If there is any questions or anything you would like me to do here, please let me know! This page also has some items for sale, but it’s not stuff I’m selling on eBay, so check it out if you want.
