By the way, coats and jackets are very popular on eBay and there's one time of year when they are cheap, cheap, cheap!
This time of years is spring. In the spring, thrift shops have big sales. Sometimes jackets are 75% off ....or even a buck a piece! What brands sell well on eBay? Jackets made by North Face, Patagonia, and REI are always hot. Columbia is another brand to look out for --but Columbia jackets have a low resale value, so be sure not to pay too much for them. Remember: Just because a product sells for a lot in the stores doesn’t mean it’s worth much on eBay.
Another area of outerwear you might want to explore is leather jackets. I sold one a few months ago. It was a western-themed jacket made by Chicos, and it only cost me a few bucks. It was very nice and went for $46!
I’ve sold quite a few contemporary and vintage leather jackets over the years, and when it comes to leather, the funkier the better. For example,
last summer we went to a yard sale on a very, very hot day. All of a sudden, there it was -- the most amazing down jacket in North America. It was extremely puffy, and it was covered in plaid patches. It was amazing. According to the ladies hosting the sale, the owner of the jacket had purchased it on a trip to Alaska. It was the thickest jacket I'd ever seen and very versatile -- perfect for snowstorms or a night out on the town.
We bought it for a few dollars and were confident that we would eventually find that special someone who was looking for something truly unique. Because I didn’t recognize the brand, and I knew I would have to wait for the right buyer to come along, I listed it at a fixed price of $49.99 or best offer. It sat in my store for quite a while, but a few weeks ago I sold it for $35 -- not bad and we were happy to find it a good home.
Outerwear from the past is also fun to sell. Just because Nordstrom no longer carries ski jackets with elastic waistbands ala the ‘80s, doesn’t mean there aren’t people out there looking for them. Not too long ago I sold a vintage down jacket from North Face. I only paid $1 for the jacket. I recently sold it for $20 even though it had a stained collar.
One final tip I have is as follows: Be sure to have someone model any jacket you are trying to sell. There is no need to show the person's face, and try to avoid showing any body hair. People want to see a clean picture of the product being worn.
So if you're wondering what to sell on eBay, don't overlook outerwear! It's easy to find and relatively inexpensive to purchase.
