This tip is a bit late today. I was at an estate sale at 6:30 a.m. in order to be first in the door. I was 14th in line but made it into the house with the first batch of shoppers. I spent 2 1/2 hours there and $860 on books. Thankfully they took credit cards and thankfully my business account has been building up with all the ReSelling that I have been doing lately. One book alone might sell for $150 so I think I did quite well. I'm completely exhausted but wanted to leave you with a ReSelling Tip for the weekend ahead.
This week I'm going to discuss shoes: The Dansko Clog.
Before I delve into shoes I wanted to introduce this weeks ReSelling Tip Post Sponsor:
Pardon My Past is a shop full of sweet vintage items. My favorite section is definitely the vintage books. You can also follow Pardon My Past on Facebook and get updates when new items are in the shop.

I love Dansko Clogs. I consider them my bread and butter finds for ReSelling on eBay. Once you have an eye for them you should be able to spot them a mile away. Lots of other brands are copying this style so make sure the shoes say Dansko on them.
The average sale for a pair of Dansko clogs for the last 90 days on eBay is $38. Dansko Professional Clogs are used by many professions but especially nurses and people that work in the food industry. I try to buy them for $10 and under. If they are a relatively new style and have something special like felt or embroidery such as the pair above, I may pay up to $20. I do usually try to check before I buy if they are priced that high. I prefer to quadruple my money. If I pay $10 for an item I'd love to get $40 for it. Each person will have their own math though for ReSelling.
I can find Dansko Clogs at yard sales, moving sales, thrift stores and even sometimes at consignment stores. I probably find around 5-7 pair a year. Be cautious about condition, I look for clogs that haven't had much use. The more an item is worn, the more I have to describe the flaws and I personally don't enjoy that side of listing.
Have a great thrifting weekend.
