Missoni for Target
Thank you for checking out my auction! I would like to turn these rainboots into a rainy day fund for my youngest child, who has just begun her freshman year of college.
I will be using the proceeds of this auction will pay my daughter's freshman year tuition to university. This is a retail sale. I am only stating what the profit from the sale will be used to do.
Boots are new in NEW IN BOX, and will be shipped within 24 hours of my receiving payment.
I thank you for taking the time to look at my auction and share it with others!
Payment will be required at time of auction closing. Buyer will be contacted privately.
Here is the full CNN MONEY interview:
Here are a few questions. Please let me know your thoughts.
Where and when did you get the boots and what gave you the idea to use them to get tuition money?
I purchased the rain boots from a local Target, which still had plenty of stock, towards the end of last week.
To the average American, a 400 point correction in the stock market looks like trouble in the market, but to the average millionaire stock market investor, that dip looks like a garage sale. It’s all in your perspective. I believe that I have ideas that outrun my counterparts, and this eBay listing is just such an idea: a business transaction with very little risk, but opportunity for big returns.
I’m studying from the materials of Peter Daniels and Bill Winston, and learning to dream big, to have a broader perspective about finances and risk, and to take action to make things happen. Missoni mania looked like the perfect opportunity for a miracle.
Do you expect the boots to sell for $31,000?
Absolutely, all things are possible. This is a business transaction and a statement about what I believe is truly important. Fashion week doesn’t generally have a great of an impact on my life, but the Target for Missoni boots will be a blessing when they sell.
What kind of feedback have you gotten so far?
The initial feedback was extremely negative and hateful, and included veiled threats, but for the most part the recent feedback has been positive and encouraging. There are a lot of people who are looking for good news, and a reason to hope. They’re cheering me on, and I’m grateful for the encouragement. Most people are looking for an opportunity to do good, I just created the circumstance for that opportunity to occur.
How many children do you have and had you saved for their college expenses?
We have two children, both adults. Our oldest decided not to go to college yet, and works full time. Our youngest took concurrent enrollment during her senior year and decided to pursue a degree. We have lived frugally and have some savings, but like most Americans, it’s just not enough to cover college, retirement, and life at this point.
What will you do if the boots don't sell?
The boots will definitely sell, there’s no question of that. I’ve had offers for them, but I’m sticking with my listing and believe it is an opportunity for a miracle.
