How to sell on eBay: specify color with Crayola crayon

I have been selling on eBay for over 18 years! In my experience, I have had a few returns for "Item does not match description" relating to the color of the item. Understandably, lighting and the graphics quality on a mobile device or computer may cause the color to vary slightly. I, personally, have had a difficult time photographing anything black - therefore, I don't typically pick up this color when #thrifting. 

To clear up some misinterpretation of color, I recently started taking pictures of odd colored items with the Crayola crayon that matched. I state in the item description that "the color of the item is most accurately represented by the Crayola crayon, color here. Crayon not included".

Mother - Daughter Garage sale haul $50 spent

My assistant (my daughter) and I went garage saling (is that a word?) and brought home this haul:

2 New Scrub shirts $2 ea
Disney Scrub shirt $2
1 NEW Banana Republic pleated skirt $4
Stuffed Winnie the Pooh Plush $1
New vintage Coca Cola mug .25
Vintage Granny Square quilt $2
Several NEW with tags clothing for Amazon FBA
Plus Size holiday themed clothing $4
Ugly Christmas sweater with cats all over it (may keep for myself) $1
Vera Bradley bag - retired pattern $4

2 Rarely worn LulaRoe shirts $8
2 NEW LulaRoe patterned skirts $8
The lady had several XXS & XS LulaRoe shirts for $5 each, but would not budge on the price regardless of the number I purchased. I have NEVER found a LulaRoe anything nor have I tried to resell that brand, so I cautiously only purchased two shirts.

Total spent just under $50.
Expect to make that back on just one of the LulaRoe skirts!

Time spent with my daughter: priceless!
