Thrift Store Item 2 Sell - LL Bean Flannel Lined Shirts

Here's another item that I have on my Thrift Store shopping list.


Here are the stats from my 90 day Terapeak Research

Avg Price: $20.19 / Sell Through % 91.53 / Total Listings 59

Now you won't become a Titanium Level Powerseller by listing one of these shirts, but it fits my goal of at least a $10.00 profit after all fees. Look at that sell through rate of 91.53%, that is as good as it gets.

Here is another LL Bean item to look for and I will have more to come in the future. LL Bean Hunting Boots Good Luck John Paul

Vintage Oakland Raiders / L.A. Kings Starter Hats & Jackets

I was watching a rerun of Married With Children this morning on TBS and Bud's character takes on the role of Grand Master B. He was wearing his Oakland Raiders Starter Jacket & Black Raiders snap back hat. As an eBay seller I was thinking to myself I wish I had those items to sell on eBay right now. Raiders & L.A. Kings gear which became popular with the rap group NWA in the late 80s (who always wore the black and silver colors of those sports teams) are excellent sellers on eBay.

Here are the last 90 days stats from Terapeak


Oakland Raiders Starter Jacket - Avg. Price $70.28

Oakland Raiders Starter Hat - Avg. Price $32.79

L.A. Kings Starter Jacket - Avg Price $71.70

L.A. Kings Starter Hat - Avg Price $40.81

The average Sell Through Rate for these keywords is over 70% which is excellent. Plus a lot of sellers add these keywords to other teams starter hats or jacket auctions to get more views because they know people are searching for these items. So that average price and sell through rate would be higher for these items.

So keep an eye out for these items at garage sales, thrift stores, etc.

Good Luck,

John Paul
