Please watch: "Finding Treasure At The Thrift Store To Resell Online!"
Went to a live auction yesterday. Auctioneer's wife was running the concession stand. Smoke show brunette rockin' the purple highlights. So Alli, it looks like you've started a thing in the reselling community!
I’m still part time making a few thousand a month. That 6 figures is sweet. So cool that it’s even possible. My wife is more willing to trust I’m not crazy when she sees other people doing it lol. Keep it up.
So you did a healthy potato cleanse for a week for your health - great. But ...... then you go and "celebrate" with a steak lol? You're just gonna put that weight right back on within the next week or two if you go back to the way you were eating before it (Standard American Diet). If you really want to be healthy and keep the weight off, give up ALL animal products and go plant-based. A good one (works for us) is by Dr. McDougall from his book, "The Starch Solution." Potatoes aren't terrible either - depends how you prepare them (definitely not fried). Best of luck in your sales this coming holiday weekend.
When you change how you originally said you would ship, do you ask/inform the buyer first? If someone's expecting it to come Priority Mail, and you ship it FedEx instead, does it ever get the buyer a little perturbed?
Yup...the British Premier League is the English league; most of the teams are in & around London. My hubby watches those soccer games most weekends. I like to root for the Arsenal team...and I'm pretty sure they always have those Fly Emirates shirts on.
Thank you again you guys continuing to give out free content to help out those just starting out. Within 3 weeks of starting I have turned $100 into $1000. This would not of been possible without your content and advice. Excited to see what the next month will hold, thank you again.
Hey guys, love the vids- keep up the great work! One question, you previosuly told me that you do 90% BIN, do you also include OBO and set a reserve price on that? Because I noticed that you say, "we only got $21.77 for this" etc.. Thanks! 🤙
As of today i am putting my toes into liquidation wholesaling. With purchase price, shipping and fees the pallet cost $330. Total retail price $1,600. If I do the listing correct it will resale for $1,000. My profit should be between $400 and $600. Love you guys!! Take care!!! Matt
good stuff. every vid i learn a lot. i work often so i can't watch ur vids immediately. because i don't have ample time ur vids don't show up in my notifications anymore. youtube algorithm needs improving. binge watch the 7 i missed tonight!!!
On the fabric with the little tag hole, sometimes you can move the fibers back into place with your fingernail and it'll be like the hole was never there. Wish it worked for active wear. Our Salvos staples the price tags on everything.
Mochi is just so huggable!!! And it looks like she loves the love too. :)
I just looked up your store and the majority of the stuff you guys sold, like almost everything, are new, wholesale items, any insight on where you guy find such items, would this be in the tutoring lessons you guys offer?
are you looking at public solds on ebay cause that'll only show our multi-quantity still active items, our single item sales get deleted. https://youtu.be/RLTlgjpjqqE - but yes, about 70% of our income is from wholesale and yes we show how to find those items in our mentoring :)
I have a question! So I'm not a pro at buying and reselling but I do quite a bit of it. Especially with the things I know a lot about. Like action figures and dolls. But I mainly buy packs of action figures and resell, as of right now just making enough to kinda pay for gas, pay bills just here and there, support my hobbies, lunch here and there. But for months they haven't had anything which was new to me. Today I asked what happened w the action figures/dolls and they said this girl, and pointed to the girl, hangs out there all day long, literally open to close, every SINGLE day they're open, and it's true because I've seen her, just never knew it was her, and she takes them as soon as they put them out, and resells them. Is this something you guys would make a complaint about? Or no? Like I see you guys go to stores all over town, not just one, shopping around for what? An hour, two hours, but you guys leave and are yet super successful. Me being a part time reseller it's hurting me lol and collector who kept some of the action figures lmao... Or would you guys just consider it a lost? Gracias!!!
How did your potato cleanse thingy work out? Did you pig out on burgers and fries? Maybe not fries...im sure Allison doesn't want to look at another potato. I cried for you guys!!😓
Ok..i just watched the end....LOL!
steaks look good!!!
Hugs thanks for the video!
🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔 COULDN'T FIND A STEAK EMOJI...
Have you guys ever looked in to using Pirate Ship? Takes a good amount off shipping vs. USPS pricing. Just a heads up for something to look in to. Love the videos and you guys give me the inspiration I need most days lol
Love you guys! Since watching Ralli Roots I've gotten the motivation to turn my part time reselling into my full time job! Work no longer feels like 'work' and feel so much better about my future! Hope to fly over to the US one day and meet you
RALLI ROOTS thanks for the reply! I'm in the UK near Norwich if you know where that is :) me and my girlfriend are coming over to Florida in November, I'm hoping to try visit some thrift shops whilst we're on holiday ha
Yassss!! SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT! 😂😂 you two are fucking awesome! I’m happy I’ve stumbled upon your channel! My boyfriend Ben and I have recently started reselling and your videos have really helped get us get started!
😢😢😢😢😢😢Dear Rallis Ebay has restricted my two account
one for selling antiques and the second for dropshipping
the account of antiques they left some auctions in current and they leave some listings but they remove some other listings
the second of dropshipping the removed all listings
i have called them this morning they promise me to resolve the problem within 48 hours
i still have hope that they will let me back to my business because it had become a full time job
keep inspiring me Dears
What’s the cost of your program guys, also in the video you shipped and Item FedEx and you said you could use smart post or home delivery which one did you use, some people say smart post of the problem .
For the item that you shipped Fedex, did you have it listed as Fedex in the listing? Or did you have it USPS but went Fedex anyways? I worry if I dont ship with the exact carrier I list that they will get mad.
No getting a LLC is not the only legal way to sell. As long as you pay your taxes on your earnings you don't need an LLC. I sell on eBay and we pay a tax professional to do our taxes. The form PayPal sends us just gets added in the pile of tax paperwork along with the expenses and my husband's w2
$6.99 is paying up??!! I wish that was our prices in thrift stores here in Hawaii. That would be a "steal" in most Goodwill and Savers. Most Polos are 8.99-12.99 and Tommy Bahamas are 9.99-14.99. Hawaii is not a paradise for us resellers.
Hi! I love your videos! Just curious as to why you guys don’t do a USPS pick up instead of taking your packages to the post office. Is it due to the amount of packages that you have? It just seems like it would save you some time to have them picked up. Can’t wait for the next video!
That was a great haul in today's video. Bulk shipping.....YES. We are still finding more great items at GW & Salvation. Found our first Untuckit this week along with more Peter Millars. May sales have been record breaking so far. You guys are great with your upbeat positive attitudes. Thanks for sharing your adventures. Mike
Ryan and Alli, love the amazing video and I feel your pain with trying to get to the post office😤😳. I’m not if you have been asked before but, I’m in need of Insurance to cover my Inventory and wondered who you used? My hot water heater crapped out on me and I came down to my garage to 1” of water. My inventory is in totes so I was extremely blessed not have damage. However, if there is a next time I might not fair so well. Absolutely love you guy’s and learn so much from you❤️🤗
This was a fun video! It made me think of a couple of questions too. First, I'm not having nearly as much luck with Orvis shirts as you seem to...I only pick them up if they're in excellent condition and I price them in the low 20s, with good pictures (I'm a photographer) and keywords. Anything in your experience that keeps them from selling?
Second, at what volume of sales would you say it's worth it to invest in a label printer?
Third, I see you like Guinness stuff - have you traveled to Ireland before? If not it's a must-see, beautiful place, and worth it to check out their tour in Dublin!
Also, I have to say thanks for all the great tips you've shared! Thanks to one of your garage sale videos, I just picked up a combo VCR/DVD player on Saturday for $3 at a garage sale and it sold the next day for about $65 shipped!
Keep being awesome. And after seeing this video I'm definitely grilling some steaks for dinner tonight...
Roy Meyer thanks so much for your support! So glad you still like our vids 😊 such great questions! Let me try to answer them one by one. With orvis stuff, long sleeves and button downs sell bettor for us. Polos we only get around $19 for. Definitely use keywords like “fishing” “hunting” “outdoor” “vented” those all help. Next, I would say it’s worth getting one from the beginning. A regular printer is gonna cost you more in the long run with ink and everything else. A good thermal printer is only about $100-160 and check offerup. You can probably find a used one on the low low ;) WE LOVE IRELAND! We went last year around this time actually. Spent a week out there. It was incredible. And you are most welcome! We make these vids to help people and it means a lot to us when we get positive feedback like that! Have a great week!!! Ralli
Y’all need a new profile picture on here! Ryan you’ve “grown up” and look so different now. Maybe all the working out haha. Allison looks almost exactly the same in the pic though. She doesn’t age! Lol
RALLI ROOTS Yes you are lucky! Y’all are so cute. One of my fave YouTube couples ❤️
Not old, just older haha. I understand though. I’m still in my 20’s too but sometimes I look in the mirror like “who is she?” I feel like I just graduated high school even though I DID NOT 😂
