Selling Goodwill: Peter Russo and the Promotion of Australia-Japan Relations This video is really interesting. Check it out:

So basically, an Ebayer goes around to six Goodwill stores and buys a bunch of stuff. He claims that he will be able to sell everything on ebay for a $1000 profit. What I like about this video is that it gives me an idea of what kind of stuff I should be looking for at Goodwill. Here is a list of the items he bought:
-Golf polo t-shirts
-Talk Boy cassette player
-Ink cartridges
-Hair rollers
-Electric Scooter
-Camcorder
-Fabric Steamer
-Braun Shaver
-Conair Instant Heat
-Dreamcast Controller
-iFit training cards
-Headset
-Weight Watcher's book
-Baby monitor
-Graphing calculator
-Vintage typewriter
-Vintage Bike
-Work out shoes
-Box of tampons
I doubt that this guy actually was able to make a $1000 profit on all of this stuff, but it's still a pretty inspiring video if you ask me.
Peace,
Josh

Do hawkboss, overkill and bad vibes.

That's the way the "event" (Eeek) looks to me, after 4-5 workers (in group effort?) get fired for (right) dishonesty at an "as-is" Goodwill Industries Outlet ...
... and BTW, different day shifts (some had hours together, so on, so on) they all had too! Plus, what a winner way to kick off another new year!
These, as employees - they worked only at least a month or so, were to every...ft/resale companies) to their business-busy chain stores.
Calling their toll-free number or e-mailing them just tends to give opportunities to take what's given "out of context" for themselves, as such stands: not in focus to a complaint's meaning shows to be a challenge for them. :(
One figures the exact, lame and strange judgment call on their employees to guesstimate - whatever.

More small business advice

You are welcome! Yes, I still have the business but am in the process of closing it down this month. I had a 3 year lease and for the last year I have been trying to sell it while on a month-to-month. No takers at any price --- I even tried to GIVE it away to a couple of my very capable employees. They know better. The problem I have now is "what in the world do I do with all that "stuff"? I hav... become a medical aid --- which actually pays a living wage as opposed to me --
lots of stories like that over the years - I found out how much I liked helping people solve their problems. It was worth every penny I lost -
Thanks for the nice response - I hope you make a good decision. Try anything once is my motto - as long as you have a good "exit strategy"
Good Luck

Please Take Note Entrepreneurs

I saw a great idea, Goodwill sells clothing that cannot be sold by the pound and I read how some people are taking out short term leases(empty storefronts are plenty)and selling clothes for $1.00 each and they are reaping in profits!
