Re: packaging for shipping

Been considering packing an insert with a discount code for the buyer's next purchase. The buyer could even pass the code along to his or her friends and it would be a great bit of viral marketing.

Re: Vintage Sources

Re: Champion t-shirts

Hey I am confounded by Champion gear. A couple years ago I noticed how much champion tag athletic shirts were selling for on the bay and i went nuts searching for them. The only success i had was with an 80's University of Miami jersey t-shirt. Unfortunately its before i started keeping good records...

Re: Vintage Sources

Well too bad you are located in Toronto Bubba, because I'd be interesting in browsing your wares. How much of whats contained in a 25,000 pound container actually sellable vintage as opposed to plain old rags? I know there is a grading process and would be interested in learning more about it. I loo...

Re: packaging for shipping

I had some 2"x4" stickers made up with my logo and a URL to my ebay seller page made up, and stick those on every package I send out. I hope at least it increases my rate of feedbacks. I think inserts are a waste and as a buyer can simply be annoying garbage.

Vintage Sources

I know us sellers like keep our secrets, but I'm going to ask anyway. As a small seller without a good consistent vintage connection, I'm always on the hustle for fresh vintage items to fill my inventory. Between thrift stores, estate sales, and flea markets I get by. I enjoy the variety of merchand...
