Eric Michael – Thrift Wars: A Battle-Tested Internet Business Plan
Thrift Wars is the first book to provide instruction on all aspects of building a successful online home business selling books, vintage collectibles and selling used clothes and other products on multiple internet platforms from the comfort of your own home.Complete primers on internet selling and retail arbitrage can cost up to $200. After all, why would a successful thrift shop reseller tell competitors instructions how to build profitable shop in their own niches for cheap? They wouldn’t, right?
Well, I have been a successful seller on Amazon, eBay and Etsy for years, but I have recently transitioned to providing help for aspiring online business owners, so I have no reservations about telling you exactly how to find the most profitable sales items at second hand stores and sell them online for high profit margins – for less than the cost of a cup of coffee. As soon as you sell one additional inventory item, this book pays for itself!
