I'm always always on Craigslist. Craigseasy makes my life so much easier these days!
Last October I bought 2 wingback recliners for $30 ( for the set ) and they've been sitting in my shed as I debate whether to keep them. The problem is, I'm not satisfied with the "wings" on them. I need a more profound wing.
Soo I sold them for $110. Yes, an $80 profit.
I always always sell for profit, and you know, it works. It's all about doing this:
1.Use tags ( keywords ) the more the better, overdo it. For instance, My listing included words like: wingback, wing, winged, upholstered, fabric chairs, set, pair, blue, wood legs, armchairs, arm, chairs, old, vintage, antique, recliners.
2. Take GOOD pics. If there are any problems with your furniture, take pics of the problem spots. Do not take pics like this:
Bad Display: frumpy back pillows, ditch the beige pillows....I cant see what the frame looks like, what's with the curtain in the back?
Bad Lighting AND junk: What color is that? Is it wood? Is there glass? I cant see what it is beneath the clutter
Know what it's worth, and what's in style.( research other similiar listings and then put your price ) These people are out of touch with reality. They want $500 for the set.
