Yard Salers and eBayers: Issue 19! 3.19 – April 2005

Happy Spring, all!

It's been a busy time here in the Yardsalers household. We took a trip to California for the kids' Spring Break...we started in Southern California, near Escondido, then drove up to LA, then up the California coast to the San Francisco Bay area.

We took the kids to several theme parks, like Wild Animal Park in Escondido (an extension of the San Diego Zoo), Legoland, and Disneyland.

I must say, I was hoping that Disneyland in March would not be so crowded...the place was so packed that it was hard just to walk around from ride to ride, not just no fun to wait in those miserably long lines for the rides themselves. I guess quite a few school systems have Spring Break the same week.

I still wonder why Disneyland doesn't erect simple porticos or awnings to shade people waiting in those long lines on particularly hot days. That's a simple thing they could do to make the customer experience better. Maybe the long awnings would serve as a reminder of just how darn long their lines can get, and they don't want people to think of that. But still. Of course, this time we were not there in the heat of summer, but I've been to Disneyland and other theme parks in high summer before, and have sometimes taken to actually pouring bottled water on my head to cool off.

The kids had fun on the trip, but being the thrift store/antiques shop wonk that I am, if I had been alone for stretches of time, I would have liked to have ducked into those kinds of places along the way. As I recall, in Berkeley, which is of course a college town, there are many cool, funky used bookstores along Telegraph Ave. (and probably elsehwere too), which I could have haunted for hours and hours if left to my own devices.

Other thoughts brought on by the trip that might be relevant to those of us who sell things: Have you ever been thoroughly enjoying an experience, only to have one thing go wrong and mar your opinion of the business establishment? I refer to a certain luxurious hotel we stayed in that was right on the Southern California Coast...I won't name the town, because I think it's the only luxury hotel in this particular town.

The place was beautiful, right on the water, with an ocean view from every room, and complete with nice little balconies and a beautifully done continental breakfast in the morning in the lobby, with all sorts of bagels, pastries, fruit, and coffee (did I mention I'm a big breakfast person?).

Well, on our last evening there, we decided to order from the hotel's room service dinner menu, wanting to sample some of its many delicious-sounding offerings. Unfortunately, it was a very rainy night (it's been a very rainy season in Ca. this year), and everybody and their brother must have had the same idea to stay in and get room service.

The first thing that went wrong was that they called after a while to say they were out of the molten chocolate cake we'd ordered. Now, that's not so terribly bad, although we called pretty early, like around 5:15 pm, so that they would run out of something so early was not the best indication. (Not to mention I really like molten chocolate cake). OK, fine, so we switched the order the chocolate truffle cake instead.

OK, I got that they were in the weeds...I expected they'd be very busy and, say, room service might take longer than the 40-minute wait they indicated on their menu. But when an hour and a half rolled by and not a peep, we finally called down to the front desk. Now, part of the problem was the hotel seemed to have two different people answering the front desk phone that night, taking food orders...and they didn't seem to have a separate line for room service.

To her credit, the front desk person who answered the second time was very helpful and was surprised to hear we hadn't gotten our order yet, and said she would check on it right away. Said food finally arrived about ten minutes later, after close to two hours total, cold, and with not only the one switched cake wrong, but an extra cake we did not order....which wouldn't have been so bad, but they charged us for all three cakes.

When we called down again to say we'd gotten an extra cake we didn't want, this (different, first) front desk phone answerer denied we'd asked to make the switch that we'd made, sounding irritated...nor was there ever an offer to just suck up the cost of even one of the three cakes. And never did those two simple words "I'm sorry" cross any of their lips, even though the second desk person was nice about it.

Would it have been so hard to 1) simply say "I'm sorry," 2) not to tell us we had not ordered what we knew we had, especially when they had two different people taking phone orders and clearly not coordinating...what happened to "the customer is always right" anyway? And 3) could they simply have sucked up the cost of even one of the darn cakes, especially since two of them were wrong?

At this point, it stops being about the silly $6.50 or whatever the darn cake slice cost, but the principal of the thing. This is something I try to practice in my eBay business...even if I may not agree with a customer, or think they may have their facts wrong, if it's a small amount of money I'd rather just suck it up and leave the customer with a good overall feeling about the transaction. Is it worth getting bad feedback over $10-$20? I don't think so. And of course, we are all human and make mistakes, so if there's any doubt at all an error is not mine, I need to assume it was mine.

Some of you may disagree...if so, feel free to let me know.

Well. Having said that, I hope this doesn't come off as a snarky commentary about the trip to California. Overall, we were all struck by the many gorgeous undeveloped expanses of ocean-front land and rolling hills up the Pacific Coastal Highway. The Hearst Castle was trult a magnificent sight, and we found some towns that seemed to be undicovered little gems, including one called Cambria, just south of San Simeon and the Castle. It was quiet, full of funky shops and restaurants, and featured a beach where moonstones washed ashore in the morning, and you and your kids can have fun prospecting.

OK, let's move on to the rest of the newsletter. I'm going to touch on some of the other auction-oriented newsletters out there in this issue...I'm a big fan of these newsletters, and some of them have also been kind enough to mention Yardsalers. One such newsletter is Skip and Karen McGrath's Auction Seller's Resource, at http://www.auction-sellers-resource.com. This is one of the best resource sites around for auction sellers...in fact it bills itself as "The web site for Professional Auction Sellers." Find out why in the second article in this newsletter.

Finally, we'll talk a little about what to expect at eBay Live in 2005...Yardsalers again plans to attend, so if you are going, I hope to see you there...if not, I hope to bring as much of the show to you as possible via a blog and articles on my site.

Now, let’s get to the rest of the newsletter...

1) Dumpster Diving for Fun and Profit (or, Curbside Bonanzas: Have I Got a Tip for You)

I found about $200 worth of free stuff on the curb this weekend. Yep, just sitting there on the curb, free for the taking. I'm going to soon give you specifics as to what I found, and how you might find similar pickings. But first, I know you're wondering, how? (Or even, why?)

(You may recall that my husband joked a while back that one day my yard sale/estate sale/thrift store habit would lead to me dumpster diving. He said this tongue-in-cheek. Or I think he did.)

Well, I seem to be pushing the envelope. OK, so this piece in not about "dumpster diving" per se, because although I was foraging, I was foraging out of bags that had been set out on a curb. (I know, you're thinking "big difference.").

OK, let's get back to "how." How and why were several bags stuffed full of books, fabric, hats, sewing patterns, etc. etc. and so forth, sitting on the curb, free for the taking? A little thing known as "special pickup" day in our area. This is when the local goverment..be it city or county, depending, designates a day every so often (say every 6 months) that they will come by and pick up large disposable items.

OK, sure, sometimes the stuff is truly junk, and sometimes you may not want to go anywhere near it. But sometimes people put all kinds of perfectly good stuff out just because they don't want to deal with getting rid of it in other ways. And, as they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure.

In this case, I stumbled upon yardsaling gold: bags and bags of books, many in like-new condition, and some rare out-of-print specialty books that were worth about $70 combined.

Not bad for about a half hour's work, huh?

In fact, I just made $43.50 on just two of the books I listed from that curbside bonanza in the last few days. The two books were:
- "How to Grow More Vegetables: And Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops" ($12.50), and

-"Drawing Fashion" by Thames, W. ($31).

Both of these sold via amazon.com's "Marketplace," where it is relatively easy to list a book..and no photos are required. (They have stock photos in many cases, and where they do not, it's accepted to just list a book w/ no photo. In fact, I don't think you can even post a photo to amazon's marketplace, but I'll have to double-check on that).

Here are some of the other books I picked up here for free that day, with their amazon listing price:

- Colloquial Dutch: The Complete Course for Beginners (Colloquial Series) [Audio] ($23.95)

- May It Please the Court: 23 Live Recordings of Landmark Cases As Argued Before ($15.95)

- Language Success in German (Business Success Language) by Language Success... ($11.00)

- Fashion Drawing in Vogue by Packer, William ($32.00)

- London (Eyewitness Travel Guides) [Paperback] by Leapman, Michael; Scott... ($15.00)

...and here is another book I have listed, not from that curbside lot, but from a yard sale a while back; I picked it up for about $1:

How to Sell Yourself to Others by Wheeler, Elmer ($42.00)

I also have four books of paper dolls, each about fashion from different decades, starting with he 20s. I'll be listing them soon and will let you know how those do as well.

I'm not even including a whole bunch of new-condition Weight Watchers recipe and cooking books I picked up...that's because I may save those for myself.

So, for just the books listed above that were part of the curbside lot, that's $141.40 in potential sales, including $43.50 just for a few days sales.

But not everything from that lot was worth selling..I grabbed a few things I was not sure about, and after researching them on eBay, concluded they weren't worth selling and will donate them to charity.

These include:

- a Raggedy Andy doll, large, which I estimate to be worth only about $10;
- A Whoville-opoly game -- Monopoly based on the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Also only worth $9-$10.

There were also a whole bunch of sewing patterns, buttons, etc. but at that point I had grabbed so much stuff, and a few other people came over to forage, so I thought I'd leave the sewing stuff to others who might want or need it more.

How can you find similar bonanzas in your area? It starts with Google. Go to google.com, and do a search on your local area's government. In my case, the government was the City of Alexandria, so I put "alexandria va government" (sans the quote marks) into the search engine window. When I saw the Alexandria VA city government web site pop up in the results, I clicked on that, then followed it down to its link to the Transportation dept., where they had a link for Spring Cleanup. There, they have a map that listed which part of the city would have this annual pickup on which weekend.

(I'm not sure your local govt. will have such a pickup..some may simply require individuals to call in a special pickup request, and do only ad-hoc pickups. But it's worth looking into. You can also check local governments close to your own).

So happy curbside...er, diving...


New! A Market Report for Booksellers

What could be more important for booksellers than to know when to buy a book and when not to? Not anything I can think of. If you have a substantial amount of this kind of information in mind when you go to sales or can access it quickly (via a notebook or some sort of handheld device), great. There'll be no stopping you.

But there's information, and there's information. Some of it's necessarily more (or less) useful depending on how likely it is that you'll have the chance to put it in play. What good does it do you to know the title of an uncommon book that can be resold for $50? If it's uncommon, the chances of using this information are relatively slight, and whatever you invest in acquiring it may not be time or money well spent. Far better to invest in information that will have wider applicability. Far better to have knowledge of books that will sell for $50 and more and can actually be found at sales or other venues with some regularity for prices that will give you plenty of room to profit handsomely.

This is where BookThink's 50/50 comes in. 50/50 is a detailed market report that lists and annotate 50 books that typically sell for more than $50 online and - here's the best part - surface at sales and other venues with some regularity. This is information you can use and profit from often. Uncommon books will not be included.

Here's a sample of what you're likely to see in 50/50:


2-volumes. Unabridged. Originally issued in dark blue cloth with a 3-compartment box, the upper compartment housing a boxed magnifying glass that operatedlike a drawer. The magnifying glass was essential for reading microprint, a necessary evil in condensing what was originally a 10-volume set into 2. Beginning in the early 1970's, Book-of-the-Month-Club offered these dictionaries at deep discounts for new members. Many sold, and many are still out there. Values are understandably lower if the box and/or magnifying glass is missing, but final values at or near $100 are commonplace.

So, if you could use 50 of these every other month, then BookThink's 50/50 will bring them to you. As with BookThink's Gold Edition, BookThink's 50/50 is available for purchase either by annual subscription at $20 or individually at $10.

2) Auction Seller's Resource and Other Auction newsletters

I read many different internet newsletters about auctions, ebay selling, marketing, search engines, etc. Although we all only have a finite amount of time, I recommend you read or at least scan such resources regularly so you can stay on top of trends and technology and learn from others. With that in mind, I want to talk about a few other newsletters you may find helpful, assuming you are not already aware of them. (I'll be adding a comprehensive list to my yardsalers web site soon, but this short list will get you started).

Auction Sellers Resource

One such newsletter is the free monthly "eBay Seller's Newsletter," offered by the Auction Sellers Resource site...you can subscribe by going to http://www.auction-sellers-resource.com/newsletters/ and enter your email address into the "Subscribe" box at the lower right of the screen.

This month's newsletter, for example, includes:

- eBay Announces New Wholesale Portal for Powersellers
- Free Money From Selling Books In The Public Domain
- Fun-In-The-Sun eBay Boot Camp
- The Tax Man Cometh –City, Counties and the States Want To Pick Your Pockets
- Report on The Seller's Voice Experiment
- U-Ship Offers an Alternative To High-Priced Freight Shippers
- New Wholesale Sources For April

The Auction Sellers Resource site is also a treasure trove of information and resources, including helpful auction-related ebooks, a page of links to free resources such as a government auction guide, and a wholesale web search at http://www.auction-sellers-resource.com/gowholesale.shtml (you can also get to this particular wholesale search by simplying going to gowholesale.com

Skip and Karen McGrath, who run the Sellers Resource site, are super nice people who I've met in person at a previous eBay Live, and hope to see again at eBay Live this year.

More sites and their accompanying newsletters:


At auctionbytes.com This one is the biggie. It's full of super, free resources like a daily NewsFlash (news about what's going on in the online auction world), a biweekly Update newsletter, a bustling Forum, an auction calendar for what are the best days to sell, and more.

Of course, I've written several articles for AuctionBytes, so I'm a fan. It's run by Ina and David Steiner (another husband-and-wife team). They also offer "Snappy Auction Photos: The Online Auction Seller's Guide to Digital Photography," by David Steiner, along with other ebooks at http://www.auctionbytes.com/cab/pages/bookstore.

An especially helpful part of the site is "Cool Tools," where easy-to-read charts allow you to compare things like Auction Site Fees, Payment Services, and Auction Management Services, to name just a few.


Run by toy train expert Terry Gibbs, the site is chock-full of tips for acquiring and reselling items at a maximum profit. Terry offers a great ebook that shows you how to get a leg up on the competition at getting juicy finds at estate sales -- it's at iwantcollectibles.com/estate_sale.html

Look for a more comprehensive listing of other auction and related newsletters on the Yard Salera and eBayers web site soon.

3) Requests for eBay Live 2005?


I'm psyched about eBay Live being in Silicon Valley this year. Yes, eBay announced they would have this year's convention in their hometown of San Jose, CA. And I do plan to attend again this year.

YOu can read all about it at http://pages.ebay.com/ebaylive.

Here's some of what they say will be going on:

- Thursday evening Keynote speech by Meg Whitman, eBay President and CEO -Join Meg for an eBay business outlook and special 10th anniversary Community celebration.
# Repeats of popular classes-All the Community favorites are back, plus new classes to give you even more information and motivation.
# Special 10-year anniversary surprises-The 10th anniversary of the eBay Community is a big deal. There'll be special events throughout the Conference.
# eBay Campus Tours-90-minute tours to the eBay campus.

Will Pierre make another guest appearance? Will the eBay wedding dress guy model a new line of clothing? Will a gaggle of Googlers come crash the party?

Anything can happen. Any requests, questions, etc..please email me!

4) Reader Mail

I really enjoy your newsletter - just wish it came out more often. You do a dynamite job of covering useful topics.

The best item for me was a boat anchor. Now mind you, there was no boat, no rope, and no water. Just the boat anchor. And it was heavy - very heavy.

Now I thought the auction would be a real drag, leaving me up the creek without a paddle (and just the anchor). But once the bidding started, it was simply amazing.

I won't bore you with all the questions and jokes that rolled in during the 7 days of the listing. However, I will point out that my significant other ceased to give me a hard ime once the bidding passed $500.

The winner was all the way on the other coast and so excited to win it. I never did figure out the attraction of this thing. And don't they have anchors on that coast too?

Why buy from completely across the nation?

Packaging it was a real challenge since it was so big and so heavy. It cost a bundle to ship it too. The folks at UPS still kid me about it. But it was a good auction and everyone was happy.

Thanks again for the great newsletter.

Hi Mary Anne,

Thanks so much..so glad you like the newsletter..I really needed a compliment like that right now! I do hope to get it out more often in the future.

Love the anchor story (and your puns)...yes, I seem to recall grabbing a few anchor prices for one of my books and the old ones can be very valuable..I am curious as to how you came across this gem? Did you already own it, or buy it somewhere to resell?

Great story! Good luck in the next contest..:)

Thanks again, p>




I just found your newsletter (thanks to Skip McGrath). One word of note, though, when someone clicks on the link in Skip's newsletter it takes you to a blank page. Also, the "click here" link on your main page for your newsletter takes you to the same blank page.

Just thought I would share a few yard sale experiences with you.

I live in a relatively small town in SC called Aiken, SC -- a few weeks ago, I went to a yard sale and ran into Val and Dave of Junkin' fame on Turner South.

Two weeks ago, I bought some Premier Designs jewelry at a garage sale for less than 50 cents a piece. Doing some research today on ebay I found out that one of the exact pieces I got sold for $31.00 today.

The first time I ever went to a yard sale to buy things to sell on ebay I must have had beginners luck. I purchased a handmade Bert (as in Sesame Street) for a quarter and it sold for over $20. At the same sale, I also purchased a Disney 45 and storybook for a quarter that sold for $15.

I love to read about success stories like this, it is one way to learn. Thanks for your newsletter.

Julie ----------------

Hi Julie!

Glad to have you! So glad you found us. I'll have to thank Skip for the plug.

[The problem to the broken link was an html tag that was missing..it is fixed now and anyone should be able to access it now via either Skip's Auction Sellers News or via the Yardsalers main page, at www.aolmemorabilia.com/yab -- until it moves to its new domain name.]

Those are great stories...thanks! :) (Must be something about beginners' luck because I'm still trying to duplicate the beat-up Louis Vuitton duffle that I bought for $5 and resold for $75 years ago...) Old jewelry is something I am also attracted to and I think is ofen worth taking a chance on if the price is low enough.

Thanks so much..

Julia -------------

I am interested in receiving your newsletter titled "Yard Sales & eBayers". I currently frequent garage sales and antique stores but not sure just what to buy that might sell.

I am a two year veteran of eBay with 99.9% positive feedback of 919. I would love to be able to make my shopping profitable instead of just coming homewith items I don't really need. I had a garage sale last week and made $211.00 the first day and a total of $290.00 in two days. I would love to be able to purchase that much from other garage sales and then double or triple it by the next weekend on eBay.

Anyway... please add me to your newsletter list and I will be looking forward to reading it. Thank you!

Hi Madi,

Thanks! Glad to have you ! After receiving a lot of letters about how to scubscribe, I decided I need to make it more clear on the site and within the newsletters how to do so.. So I'll be adding that info prominently to the top of every newsletter from now on.

Subj: I must be nuts-I like to sew - ebay

Was reading over your info on selling on ebay. I do go to yard sales and household auctions but my main thing is sewing. I've been sewing for 30 years, mostly quilts but want to find a niche market for handmade items of some sort on ebay. The things I had in mind don't appear to be selling very well. Sure, I believe I could buy and resell things on ebay but that won't fulfill my desire to sew. I get a great deal of satisfaction from creating something from nothing. Why does it seem as if I'll have to look elsewhere than ebay? If I could hit the nail on the head, seems like I could have my satisfaction and some money too.

Have you ever had anyone ask a question similar to mine? Thanks for your time and I did sign up for the newsletter. ---

Hi Wanda,

Looks like I don't have my original reply to your email so I'm going to go on memory as to what I said for the benefit of my susbscribers (or maybe I'll even think of something better). That's great that you are into sewing...I envy that. I myself am thinking of learning how to use a sewing machine.

As to what would sell well...I do think there's a market for some handmade items but it depends on the items. Here's one idea for you to research it...do some eBay "Completed Item" searches using words like "handmade" or maybe even "boutique" or "craft"...see what comes up as the highest priced. (You can sort the search results by highest priced, lowest priced, etc.).

That may give you some ideas.

Here's one idea I had for a handmade item that might net me a good profit. I haven't had time to test it, so if u want to take the idea and run, be my guest! The other day I was doing some research on pillows that sold at high prices...I noticed some Versace pillows sold for very high amounts (for pillows!) consistently..like around $130 I think it was. I got the idea of buying some not-so-expensive Versace scarves on eBay (for like $30-40), then going to someplace like Wal-Mart and buying large inexpensive pillows, and then sewing the scarves on the pillows and selling those.

I'd have to look into any legal/VerO issues with doing this..I don't think there are but I'd want to be sure. I think if you're up front with the fact that the pillow itself is handmade, but the scarf is genuine, it's OK.

Another idea...in the Wall Street Journal the other day they had a piece about very expensive sandals (fancy brand names/designers, of course)...you would not believe what some of these jewel-bedecked sandals are selling for this season! Or maybe you would...lol. Anyway, I thought someone might be able to buy some decent, plain leather thongs and then take beads and stones and dress them up by sewing them on...you might be able to convince some sandal-lovers that they could get a beautiful sandal for a lot less than a designer version..but still make enuf to net a decent profit.

I'll keep my eye out for you...best of luck and please let me know how it goes!

Subject: my best buy


I wanted to let you know about my "Ebay blessing".

I was at a thrift store and found a red fox figurine by Royal Doulton for $2.99. I knew the item might be good because it was marked England. Doing my research on the item, I found it to worth some money.

I posted it once on ebay with a $300.00 reserve. The auction closed at $250.00.

I was ready to let the bidder know that I would take it, but my husband wanted me to repost it, so I did. The red fox brought in $450.00 and went to a buyer in England.

The reason I call this red fox my Ebay blessing is the proceeds bought my mom a refrigerator. Her refrigerator had quit in the summer and she did not have the funds to buy one. I went to her house after I received payment from the sale of the red fox and went refrigerator shopping. What a blessing!

Keep up the good work on your newsletter. I just found your web site thru another auction newsletter web site.

I do Ebay for the extra money to help out my family. It always seems like when there is a family need, some good item comes along and sells for a good amount to go to a good cause, my family.

Have a blessed day!


a link to my Ebay store http://stores.ebay.com/Joycies-Vintage-Jewelry

Hello Joyce,

What a wonderful find! Thanks so much for sharing that with me. (You can truly call that a "cool" find since it paid for a refrigerator..lol!).

I think you're on the right track with figurines, pottery/glass and such...especially if it is signed by renowned companies such as Royal Doulton..in fact I spotted a darling pink porcelain calf figurine this past weekend, and am now sorry I didn't snatch it up for the $10. Meantime, the two Murano glass-like objects I did buy turned out to have flaws on closer inspection..ugh!

Anyway, I hope you find many more such finds, and please share them with us if you can..and welcome to the newsletter.
