AMONG THE WEE FOREST FOLK, YOU’LL ALSO FIND GI JOE ON EBAY BURBANK, California—October 3, 2006: With eBay drop-off stores fast approaching popular culture, more and more individuals are unearthing rare and interesting items which find their way onto eBay.
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Christopher Matthew Spencer is not only an author on the subject with his book “The eBay Entrepreneur” (www.ebayentrepreneur.net) but has also mastered the art of selling for others. He operates an eight-year-old eBay drop-off store in Burbank, California and has listed over 180,000 items on the eBay marketplace.
Spencer’s business helps individuals and companies liberate excess items from storage and quite often he garners amazing prices for these items.
“A local resident was cleaning out the family garage and brought us 69 mint condition GI Joe toys. After the auctions ended, we sold all of them for the sum of $28,921.14 with one rare action figure alone fetching $2,950.51. The family had no idea of the value of these mint items and were actually considering tossing them out until they heard about our store,” comments Spencer.
“Another estate of ten tiny figurines—called Wee Forest Folk—brought in $12,766.80 in total bids. The rarest of them was an adorable mouse with glasses, which sold for $3,767.00. The client who brought these in for sale on eBay was quite speechless at the stratospheric prices they obtained on the eBay auctions.”
Many eBay drop-off stores are popping up all over the United States. Spencer says it is very convenient to use these services, but that it is also critical to check a company’s reputation before using them by reviewing their eBay feedback scores and asking for references.
