Yesterday I was at Goodwill with my sister when I noticed her looking through the men's shirts. She was pulling out the Hawaiian ones and looking at the tags. She doesn't resell and was looking to buy for herself. There is a group on FB that talks about Hawaiian shirts and tiki mugs all the time so I knew there was money to be made if I found the right one.
My sister walked up to me and said "Why can't these Hawaiian shirts actually be made in Hawaii?' I pulled one out, looked at the tag and said "This one is." It is by Royal Creations.
She asked me if I was going to buy it. It was $6.99 I told her if she wanted it and it fit her she could buy it. She tried it on and it fit her. She kept asking if I was sure I didn't want it. I told her I could probably make some money off of it but it wasn't a big deal. She felt bad and let me purchase it.
I looked it up on Ebay. Prices were all over the board ranging from $49.99 to $7.99 So how do I know if I have a $50 shirt verses a $8 shirt? I asked over on the FB group for help. I asked for keywords, pricing and how to determine if it was a men's or lady's shirt. I got one response telling me it was a men's shirt if the buttons were on the right side. The second response I got was " Based on what you learned here, what would you price it at?" Ok not helpful at all. I figured if they didn't want to help, I would figure it out myself. I message the person with the second response and he replied "We're not going to do the work for you". Ummm, I wasn't asking anyone to do the work for me. I just wanted some key words to help me sell the item for the most money.
So now dear readers, I turn to you. What would you price this shirt at? Is it a $8 shirt or is it a $50 shirt? I have no idea but maybe someone does who won't be rude about it. Thanks for any help.
