Out of Beacon’s Closet…. And into Yours

15 Oct

Please excuse my first foray into amateur video blogging (I’m used to working with the best equipment, but I used my old home DV camera and iMovie to make this one). But alas, an inside peek into Beacon’s Closet’s newest location–and its first in Manhattan. It’s one of the best “buy-sell-trade” stores in the city, in my opinion. The new outpost opened September 2 at 10 West 13th Street, and just happens to be surrounded by the best clientele for the store–students from Parsons, SVA, Pratt and NYU. Take a look…. and even find out the story behind the store, how the buyers decide what to buy and even a bit about the logo!

Before We Start…. The Virtues of eBay!

14 Jul

Welcome to Bloggains. I would say it’s a way of life. What I’m about to share with you each day is what I do in my own life, to make sure my nails are done, my refrigerator is stocked with good and healthy food and wine, etc., while still having money left over to enjoy the best city in the world and its surroundings. So here it goes.

What woman doesn’t like shoes, bags, clothes and accessories! I love them all. But while my closet is bursting, my wallet isn’t. I decided I needed to get rid of some things to reverse that situation. And while we can all justify keeping an item by telling ourselves it will come back in style, sometimes it’s just worth letting go. I used to try to sell my old clothes, shoes and bags first at consignment stores like INA, and then at places like Beacon’s Closet and Buffalo Exchange. But I realized you will never get the price you deserve, if anything at all; the latter two are getting very picky as they get more popular and only take items seasonally. Many moons ago, I sold stuff on eBay. Well, I decided it was time to do it again. And it’s going well. What I’m about to tell you I should charge money for, but that wouldn’t be fair.

Here’s a sampling of what I’ve sold so far (and then I’ll tell you how I did it): a Foley + Corrina Silk Trapeze Dress for $72.00 and Chloe Ballet Flats for $64.99.

  • First, see how similar items are selling and what price they’re selling for.
  • If it’s clothing, and you don’t have a form to photograph it on, take a picture of you wearing it (I’d crop your head off the picture, though). If you don’t have someone to take the picture, take it yourself. I used a $15 tripod I got at Target (a place I will mention a lot in this blog) and placed it in front of a mirror so I could frame myself in the display–these are talents you learn as a VJ (a one-man-band TV reporter).
  • Then, yes, you have to give your measurements in addition to the size so the buyer has a better idea of how it will fit on them.
  • With shoes, if you have the box and dust bag, include it in your pictures. Make sure you show the condition of the soles, and be honest about the condition of the shoes overall.
  • Find out how much it will cost to ship it before you list the item. I like Priority Mail because it takes the weighing out of the equation; flat-rate is the way to go.
  • I think it’s worth the $.45 to add three extra pictures.

EBay gets a 9% cut of your total sale, including shipping, and if you use PayPal (I highly recommend it), they charge a minimal fee too. But it’s worth it compared to what you would get from consignment or place that buys clothes.  If anyone’s interested, click here to see what I’m currently selling (less than three days left in some of the auctions as of today, so bid fast–yes, I’m shameless, but you could get a good deal buying on eBay too.)

Tomorrow: What I did with the money I made….
