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
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!

How to improve eBay listings with a backdrop and dress form
Order your own:
👗 Dress Form
💡 Lighting Kit
A picture is worth a thousand words! This holds true when selling items online. The only thing between your items for sale and buyer is a computer screen or mobile phone. Taking great photos that represent the texture, color, etc of the item is key. I added a mini photo studio to my basement and have been retaking photos of stale merchandise in my eBay store, Piece of Scrap. I recently sold two of those items with photo retakes within a matter of days.
To create your own mini photo studio, simply purchase a backdrop, dress form and studio light. Visit How to add a photo backdrop to items selling on eBay for more information.
Here are just a couple of my improved photo retakes (before and after):

It's a girl! Meet Quinn, my new mannequin
Order the mannequin / dress form that I use.
When the mannequin you ordered finally arrives, you make an announcement, and give her a name! As mentioned in a previous post, How to add a photo backdrop to items selling on eBay , I am stepping up my photograph game when taking photos for items to sell on eBay.
Quinn is making her eBay debut ... just look at her in her very first eBay auction:
Pick up your very own "Quinn" on Amazon and let the celebration begin!
