Selling 130 items in 3 days on your own is NOT advisable my friends. Don’t be like me - perasan I have superpowers when obviously, I don’t! There were no secret hands, no wind beneath the wings, no underlying power – nehi nehi. What you will have though, are unsightly eyebags….and loads and loads of emails to reply! Hehe.
But despite all that, these past few days have been a great experience. I am definitely a sucker for good bargains and I get super excited when I see one. Now I can safely testify that being able to offer a good bargain and make people happy is almost as good a feeling – if not better!
There were some small gestures that count too (:
A customer gave me a little gift when picking up her order (thank you so much Beep!) and a few customers gave me tips on IT, post and delivery - very helpful bunch of people. Then of course there were free labors around i.e. my sisters who helped me with the orders and show their support by watching TV while I struggle with HTML -_-
My little cousins came all the way from Pahang for a weekend visit and obviously I haddd to exploit them too. (How else do you think I was able to sell at such low prices? Child labor, ma man!)
The highlight was when I got orders all the way from Sabah and Brunei - Excites me so much that my pre loved items will be traveling the milesss to their new owners (Should probably include a sleeping kit for their traveling comfort, hehe).
Some of you have queried if I will be selling more of my preloved items online, and the short answer to that is…yes, I will.
I stopped halfway last weekend because I was too exhausted to continue -__-
Having said that, I have no intention of setting up a blog shop – occasionally I will post new pre-loved items that will be on sale. It won’t be frequent or regular but you can subscribe for email updates and be notified accordingly – the wonders of technology!
My sister who just got back from UK for good wants to sell most of her Dorothy Perkins accessories – so I guess that will be next. I ran through some of her stuff and fell in love with most of her accessories so I grabbed them before any of you could! Hehe. The accessories will only be up next Friday because this weekend, I’m taking a break to attend the awesomest Malaysian FA Final - KELANTAN Vs TERENGGANU!
Time to roar my
