I found this men’s gray long sleeve Nike element running shirt at Goodwill for $4.27 including tax. I knew this item would sell, but I didn’t realize how popular the Nike running line was. Since this item I have found many Nike running items and they continue to sell for great prices.
TIP: The Nike running tops and bottoms have reflectors on them, so I started taking pictures of each item with the flash off and the flash on so bidders can see the reflectors shine. I feel like since I started using the flash on these items I have been receiving higher bids.
I listed this item in a 7 day auction starting at $9.99 plus $6.99 shipping, I had 90 views, 5 bids, and it sold for a total of $22.50 including shipping.
$4.27 item cost

The total price to buy, sell, and ship my item was $10.68, it sold for $22.50, so I made $11.82. My son just expressed that he wants to play golf. After some research I found out that one of our local golf courses offers a Saturday morning golf clinic for kids. The clinic is an hour long and costs $10, so the profit from this item will pay for my son’s first golf lesson!
