Be it any social media circle, but Instagram by far is a double-edged sword for resellers. Sure, you know what to keep an eye out for at your local discount stores when you see pics on IG. In that regards, Instagram is your friend, giving you scouting information. But then Instagram can easily make you […]

My First Unpaid for eBay Transaction

It was bound to happen, but I got my first unpaid transaction on eBay. The buyer made an offer on youth soccer shoes, and I accepted. However, days went by without any payment, and eBay’s recommendation is don’t ship the product until payment is received. Luckily, eBay has everything covered. It was easy enough to […]

Dead Plantronics Backbeat Fit

Well, this ain’t good. I had been enjoying my Plantronics Backbeat Fit earphones during my runs, but now they don’t turn on. The battery will charge (the LED shows the charging progress), but pushing the power button does nothing. Sadly, this seems to be a recurring problems based on other complaints. I don’t remember exactly […]

Reselling Lessons Learned

Reselling and the Hawaiian High Cost of Shipping

The first lesson painfully learned for reselling in Hawaii is the high cost of shipping. Mailing a pair of shoes in-state costs around $8, but once that Pacific Ocean is crossed, another $10 is added on. And that makes a huge difference for eBay sales. Paying an additional $18 for shipping on top of the […]

Better in Person

Gotta file these kicks under “Better in Person.” I’m talking about the Under Armour Micro G Volt Low. When I saw these shoes, I had to pick them up since I couldn’t quickly identify them. And that camo-like colorway on that organic upper is super intriguing. After handling the Volt, you feel the old school, […]

Starbucks Haupia Nitro, a Hawaii Exclusive

The Starbucks Reserve Roastery location in the Waikiki Trade Center is the only place in all of America where you can order a Haupia Nitro. Yup, that’s a nitro cold brew infused with a coconut blended mixture. The walls of the special Reserve cup are lined with condensed milk (I think), and the finished drink […]

Ross Windward Mall?

Is the Dress for Less Store headed to Windward Mall? If so, the last of the OG malls would have a Ross location. First was Pearlridge then Kahala. The Ala Moana location was a recent addition, and 2018 could welcome the former Sports Authority space in Windward Mall.

Trying the eBay Thing

After watching one too many Hustler Hacks videos, I decided to give the “eBay thing” a try. And it’s a lot harder than initially thought and time consuming. It’s also fun and discouraging at the same time, full of potential and disappointment. Along with new items, I’m also selling off some of my shoe rotation […]
