We continue to take in new submissions and sell on a daily basis.
Just yesterday I added the 467th item to the closet, but we only have 128 items for sale at present. As the summer riding season winds down, I'm seeing more stuff going out than coming in. For those who are not familiar with our Customer's Closet, please take this link for a quick overview
of how it works. And of course take any of the department links on our site to view the items presently for sale.
Surprisingly boots are the items that come and go quickly.
Just this week I added some more good boots from Sidi's warranty department.
Those always sell quickly. I wouldn't have guessed when I started the Closet, that boots would be the big movers.
I thought a lot of people would be hesitant about buying a used boot or shoe, but not so. Many of the boots are nearly new and when you are considering a heavy duty boot, some prior use can actually be better than new (considering the pain of breaking in).
ANYWAY, GO HERE TO SELL!A frequently asked question:
What if my item doesn't sell? Will you ship it back?
Yes, we will, but we try to prevent that request from arising. First, we screen all submissions to make sure sellers are asking a reasonable price for what they have. And then we encourage people to lower prices anytime they want. When a price is lowered it moves back up to the top of the list and says "REDUCED". But if all that fails, and a sellers wants his/her stuff back, we'll ship it to them,
but on the three occasions when that has happened, the seller was buying something from us and we simply added the item to their shipment (which saved us the expense of return shipping). I find most people aren't as concerned with price...
they just want to find a new home for their used gear and get some bucks in the process and they are willing to lower the price until gone. If you are that kind of person, then it will work great for you. But if you attempt to sell but want more than the market will bear, then it probably isn't right for you. After shipping expense and labor we don't make money on the closet... it is a customer service, and we want people to find it useful and interesting. But it is not for everybody.
