eBay Selling Tip of the Day: Learn to Love QVC and HSN

I love multitasking, and my newest multitasking routine involves folding laundry while watching QVC and / or HSN -- the home shopping channels.  QVC and HSN products can be hot sellers on eBay, and professional eBay sellers should be familiar with the products sold on these networks.

A while back, I was at the annual Elks Club yard sale, and a lady was selling a box full of Joan Rivers watches in excellent condition.  Joan is a QVC star, and I knew that ....but I didn't buy them.

When I got home, I looked them up.  I was quite disappointed to discover that they were definitely worth some cash.

Watching HSN and QVC has also made me aware of the fact some high-end designers have sold out and regularly hawk their fashions on television.  When I see clothing by these fashion icons at thrift shops and yard sales, I know not to spend too much since these designers have gone mainstream with some of their lines and are no longer selling their fashions exclusively at Niemans.

If you list in the clothing, shoes, and accessories category, watching a bit of QVC and HSN can definitely be good for business!

  1. Watching HSN and QVC is also good to see what some of the hot trends are.

    Regarding high-end designers going mainstream, a lot of eBay sellers go to Target when they're featuring a special collection from a designer, and buy pieces to resell at higher prices. People will actually go on eBay to buy what their local Target has run out.
