£5,100 Sale! What do we get after fees?

10

We recently sold the highest value item of our 15 year reselling career.  Nic had purchased a job lot of vintage consoles, games and accessories and while researching prices in which to list everything, he came across this inconspicuous looking cartridge with a hand written label.  At first he dismissed it, assuming it had no value as it had lost it’s label, and someone had replaced it with their own.  He planned to bundle it along with an Atari console and some other lower value games.  However, his curiosity was triggered, he had never seen an Atari game called ‘Hard Head’ before, perhaps even without the label it would still hold some individual value.  Having done some further research he decided that perhaps this game was actually quite rare as there were no other ‘Hard Head’ Atari Cartridges currently listed or recently completed on eBay.  He decided then that he would put the game on auction with a Buy It Now of £100!

Using Coupon Apps To Save Money On Your Grocery Shop

2

You may have used in-store coupons and regular paper coupons from Newspapers and Magazines to save money on your weekly shop in the past and these have their place and serve their purpose.  Filed under ‘there is an app for everything’ the digital age brings with it Coupon Apps.

Each app promises you exclusive offers on branded products. These offers work sightly differently as you don’t produce your coupon at the till. Instead you pay for your shop as usual, then once home, you upload your receipt to show proof of purchase and the company will then refund that amount to you, either directly to your bank account or to your Paypal account.

I tried out 3 different apps: Continue reading

Packaging Clothing

I’m often asked what I use to package my clothing for dispatch and to show how I go about it.  So I’ve made a short video (below).

There is no right or wrong way to do this and I’m simply sharing how I do it.  I use a practical, no frills method, simply using Poly Mailers.  For larger, heavier bundles I would use a box.  Some people like to pre-wrap, or pre-bag the clothing before they go in to the Poly Mailer for extra protection, as I show in the video the Poly Mailers we use are very strong and other than the occasional use of reinforcement tape, I don’t double bag.
