Lands End Swimsuits and Listing Challenge
One of my best selling items this summer has been Lands End Swim Wear. Most of my items come from the Goodwill bin, so I rarely find a complete set. I actually prefer just finding tops. I usually only find the tops or one piece suits. Most have been selling between $15 and $20 with free shipping. The price may be slightly on the low end given the retail pricing and quality of Lands End, but they move quickly. Most items sell within 2 weeks, but I've only had 1 item not sell within the first 30 days. Listing the last few weeks has been slow for me. I have a backlog of items that need to be listed, plus I'm still trying to get out and find more goodies when I can. This week I decided to challenge myself to list 75 items (not counting relist). I only average around 100 items in my store, so this is a big listing challenge for myself. Originally I decided I would list 25 items on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but not sure that schedule will work out. Yesterday (Monday) I listed 15 items. I find more motivation to list when sales are rolling in. I had 3 yesterday, one which the lady ask me to cancel within an hour of purchase..blah! Here's to a new day, new sales, new listings. Anyone else have listing goals for the week?
