One Percent, Offers and Organization

Less than one percent of what I source/buy to sell goes back to thrift. When I look critically at what I have to list for sale, sometimes the item gets the heave ho. 

Another low percent regarding reselling is my returns, less than one percent. I offer 60-day returns. As one reseller put it, "Who is going to return on day 59?" 

I also list nearly all of the listing on eBay with Best Offer. The buyer can make a Best Offer and I can choose to accept or not. There is also a feature to Send Offers to buyers. When a buyer shows interest, the seller is notified and can send eligible offers. I try to discount at least $5 or more on a send offer. 

Let's talk organization. I have a She Shed Trailer where nearly all of my sourced product resides. I buy lined baskets at thrift. Some use a bin method, where product is organized into bins. I believe some also use a UPC system, where items are scanned in and out. Mine are alphabetical by product. 

Ending this day's post with a recipe from The Escoffier Cook Book for:

Ox Tail a L'Avergnate

Section the tail and braise it in white wine. Prepare a garnish of rectangles of lean bacon, large chestnuts cooked in consomme and glazed, and small onions cooked in butter. Put the section of the tail in an earthenware cocotte with the garnish.

  1. I've done eBay re-selling. I'm a big Goodwill shopper. It can really get overwhelming. It looks like you're very organized. Good luck with your ongoing adventures!
