Default Cleaning and selling boots online.....

This past week I purchased a pair of Justin boots at a Yard Sale for $1.00

.....I sold them today for $60.00 on ebay.


I purchased a can of saddle soap and a shoe polishing kit. I decided that I was going to buy some old pairs of boots at Yard Sales and thrift stores and see how well they sold online. They do extremely well after I scrub em down and shine em up!

I have sold 6 pairs of boots over the past couple of weeks. I had $0.50 - $1.00 invested in each pair.......so I made MAJOR profits.

I know ebay kinda sucks, but it is a good way to turn a minimal investment into a decent profit.

Try this out........it will work for you!

Last year I picked up a pair of mickey mouse boots, the kind with an air bladder built into them, no holes, nice and warm, my size- $5 at a junk shop. They`re going for a hundred or more at an army PX, so i`ve been told. I aint sellin`. They are just the best in cold wet snowy conditions. I was given a very good pair of Timberland insulated boots last year too. I have seen el- cheapo moc toe wedge boots on ebay for over $300. I used to buy the exact same boots at Penney`s for about $30. You can`t find them these days. Waaaa!
