My Cruelty Free & Vegan Daily Go To’s

For some time I have been careful about the products I buy.  I have two main requirements – Paraben Free & Cruelty Free.  I became frustrated with the high street, who for many years did not offer these alternatives and instead filled their shelves with products heavily laden in chemicals and tested on animals.

Superdrug have finally bucked this trend.  I have been so happy to discover in recent months that not only are ALL their own products Cruelty Free, Vegan and BUAV approved, but they also stock affordable Vegan friendly brands such as GOSH Cosmetics and B (is for Beautiful).  Gone are the days of sourcing over priced imported or specialist brands online.

In this post I want to talk about some of the products purchased in Superdrug that I love and use on a regular basis. Continue reading

£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!

Selling Clothes on eBay: How to measure clothing

When listing your clothing items for sale on eBay using some simple measurements will a) help to sell the item and b) reduce the amount of returns you will get due to the item not fitting on receipt.  I made the mistake of thinking that women’s clothing didn’t need measuring, and the generic sizing label would be enough.  A few returns, and requests for sizing, later I quickly changed my mind on this. Every brand has slightly different sizing, despite the generic sizing given.  Without the luxury of trying an item of clothing on, extra measurements give a better idea of actual size and dimensions to fit the customer.
