This is my first time ever selling something on ebay. My son is 5 years old, and I literally have every single piece of clothing he's ever had. So, I want to go and sale all the stuff that he no longer fits in. Do I seperate like all the 0-6 month, 6-12, 18-24, 3T, 4T stuff and sale it all together? Or do I sale each piece individually? Just a little advice would be great

I agree with the previous poster--things that are new with tags and really nice boutique items (even if they're gently used) should be listed separately. It's better to do large lots on regular clothing. Someone might not buy one used shirt for $2.00, but they might buy a lot of 5 for $2.00. Also, make sure you look everything over VERY carefully before listing it, and list ANY flaws. It's better to be careful up-front than to have to deal with an angry buyer.

I know this is an old post, but maybe this will help.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I list EVERYTHING for $.99. It saves on the listing fee, and I've found that objects tend to find their value. I've listed everything from craft fabric remnants to a 1 ounce gold piece (it sold for $630) all starting at 99 cents. About 10% of the time I've been somewhat disappointed because I felt that something should have sold for more, but most of the time I've been pleasantly surprised at how much some things do sell for. And if something just won't sell, even listing it at $.99 isn't going to make it sell.

Doing this may not be for everybody, but it has worked for me.
