Keywords Never Hurt
If you know that you're going to be targeting a lot of competitive keyword
phrases on your website for search traffic, you'll want every advantage you can

to the proper pages, and get to work. For dynamically created pages through a

Suggestions from a successful vintage
Vintage items are still in great demand.
(Fact is, many people like the idea of having something that their neighbors
and friend can't get so easily!)
Sort your items according to general
categories. Further sorting can take place later during the valuation phase of
You should also now separate groups of
similar items into smaller categories. For example, divide jewelry into
narrower groups, such as pins, necklaces, bracelets, earrings

Where to sell your vintage items?
Keep in mind that Etsy charges $0.20 for
each item that you list--even if you're selling items in a big lot. For this
reason I don't suggest listing a higher quantity of items at Etsy. Don’t sell
any vintage items for under $20 there either. Etsy is best for homemade and not
vintage items. It's still an avenue that you should look into though. It is
more community driven than eBay and you could build up a greater clientele
Save large item lots and lower valued
items for eBay. You will be charged a percentage of your sale when you sell on
eBay but it is worth it for the exposure as well as their reliability. If you
ad a buy-it-now to your listing you will also be charged an insertion fee.
Note: If you don't already have a PayPal
account then sign up with them now! They are the leading online payment
processor and as such the majority of transactions on Etsy and eBay are done
through them. PayPal is critical to selling anything
Research your items. this will help you
determine a starting price. Check to see if your jewelry is signed. Even if
it's just costume jewelry, being signed makes it more valuable. People like to
know what they're buying!
Take a good picture of each item. You may
wish to take several pictures but keep in mind that eBay charges extra for
every photo you add. Listings without pictures will never sell for their
complete value. Sometimes they don't sell at all.
Make sure that you angle the camera right
and don't let the lighting wash out the details of you items. This is
especially important with jewelry. Make sure you have a presentable background
in your photos. My advice: use a pretty but simple (you don't want it to
detract from the item) tablecloth for the background. Remember, you may have
considered these items junk once but you want your potential buyers to think of
them as treasure!
Finally, when you describe your items be
sure to include every possible detail that makes your items more appealing.
If you're selling on eBay don't forget
that the design of your listing is important too! A friendly design appeals to
more buyers than a black and white page.
A quick search on Google will lead you to
hundreds of sites that offer free eBay templates. Like the tablecloth
background in the photos, I make sure to keep my listing templates pretty yet
simple. The Artois Project offers Free eBay Templates
Shipping doesn't have to be expensive. If
you are selling very small items then you should definitely invest in some
bubble mailers. You can buy a pack of 25 for less than $10. If you're selling
small items in lots or bigger items than you should use flat rate boxes by
USPS. If you go on their website you can order them for free! When you ship
your items in the smallest, and in my experience most used, flat rate box, then
its only $5.20 to send anywhere in the U.S.
One word of caution: a lot of sellers are
known to set their shipping and handling rates unrealistically high. Don't do
this. It deters buyers and you might not even sell your items. You could also
gain a bad reputation with buyers. This is especially bad when you're selling
in vintage categories, which often caters to small group of collectors who
frequently become repeat buyers. Offer free shipping (words that attract
buyers!) and make sure the auction price on eBay or listing price on Etsy more
than covers the shipping.
Don't forget to leave positive feedback
for your buyers and encourage them to do the same. The more you sell, the more
you become trusted in the vintage communities of eBay and Etsy!
