To all you amazing sellers…
First off, thank you for reading my profile and sending me all the thank you notes appreciating the tips I offered there for my own personal, 100% selfish standpoint. Many of you suggested I turn my shipping and prepping “manifesto” it into a blog post so here it goes…
I’m an extra-smelly shoe guy. When I open your package, I want to feel like I’m taking your shoes or boots straight off your tired, rank-nasty, putrid feet, rejoicing in the splendor of your foot odor that has likely caused you consternation, angst or outright embarrassment over the years.
Now that this curse is about to make you some money, let’s get down to business with a few tips that I hope will be helpful to both newbies and maybe even a seasoned pro or two.
If you plan to wear them for an extended period of time, then keep them sealed in ziplock bags as described below whenever they aren’t on your feet. This is also a good way to accelerate the ripening process rather than letting them air out overnight. It will also allow you to have a few pairs going at the same time.
Although vac sealers have always been the gold standard, it’s pretty easy to mimic one with regular ziplocks:
If you have a vac sealer, use it for everything you can that won’t poke a hole, the way sharp corners of well-worn heels often do as they bounce around the country. Sand those puppies down unless your buyer likes to bleed (no joke, some actually do). An average nail file will work for that but fine-grit sandpaper is faster and better.
Padded envelopes work well for flats, low heeled pumps and knee-highs, but anything heavier like clogs, boots or platform shoes should go in a box.
A short, casual note with your email or ATW name is welcome, but ginormous homemade pop-out cards with lipstick footprints, lip prints and heart stickers in perfume drenched envelopes with those disgusting “be mine” candies might be good for someone with a sissy fetish, but for me they are EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN!!
Lol...If I’m buying your room-clearing, foot-funked, nasty-ass shoes, the last thing I want is to smell 4-day old perfume and/or chow down on a Zagnut that’s been bunking with bodily fluids in a makeshift Petri dish for days on end!
(Although my wife does get quite a kick out of them) or fancy cards or anything beyond letting me know who sent them, and maybe a contact email. This might vary from buyer to buyer but IMHO, all that time you spent delicately wrapping them in tissue paper with bows, metallic heart stickers, glitter and actual, handwritten poems (in calligraphy) is time that would have been better spent shampooing your goldfish.
Okay, now although I have no specific expertise in the used adult items business, what I can offer you as a small business owner are a few tips that transcend most industries. Here’s what I’ve learned that I wish I knew when I was growing mine:
Thanks for reading this and hopefully it will lead to more money in your pocket and more stinky shoes on my face!
