Best Brands and Prices.

In an effort to sell more and have more knowledge of what sells the best, I’ve made a spread sheet of my best Ebay clothing sells in the last few months.

I’m going to try to keep this up so I know what brand sell, how much they sell for, and what to look for, though I know the later changes with the seasons.


This might not make any more sense to you that the saying “A hill of beans!” But basically what it tells me is that my best sellers are Old Navy and Ann Taylor. These brands not only have sold more but also this means they are the easiest to continually get at the places I shop. Since starting this spreadsheet I’ve been trying to grab up more Old Navy because I’ve realized that sells really well for me. Other resellers have said that Chico sells super well for them and though I have no complaints, they tend to sit on my shelf for a period of time before they sell. (Although I’m going to be looking for Chico Platinum jean Capris, because those were popular!)

I also know American Eagle and Banana Republic sell well for me, but according to this sheet they don’t sell for enough to make it to the sheet! Nor are they as easy to find.

Plaid seems to do well also. I’m going to keep my eye out for name brand plaid, but I’ll be careful because of the weather changing and never having sold this time of year before I’m not sure what everything will be like!


  1. So..what are the average prices you pay for this stuff? Great idea on the spreadsheet. I have one going..but I don't update it like I should. I really want to branch more into clothing because they are an easy find and sell..but kids clothing seems to be more my nack rather then adult. But..I come across a ton of adult stuff..CHEAP.

  2. I can't wait to find out more about your kid stuff. I have a terrible time with kid's clothes except the occasional good buy that resells.
    Everything I buy is 99 cents each. So you can see how easy it is to make a profit. Our local thrift store has 99 cent clothes days 2 days a week. Which is wonderful cuz if I miss a day I can make it up later!

  3. Yep..that's a decent turnaround. We have a thrift store that does one day .99. I mostly shop our Goodwill outlet which is by the lb. LOVE IT! I have had great luck with kids stuff. I'm still learning brands many options. Hands down though..Gymboree and Gap are my top selling kids items. You find them for cheap..scoop them up.
