Uggs on sale

Ugg boots are expensive. Typical Uggs will sell for $100 to $200 dollars at most of local malls, outlet stores or Amazon. Shoppers are willing to pay these prices because they're the hottest thing going in boots. In particular,  the high school and college kids can't seem to live without them. You may remember my previous experience with Uggs, when I fished my daughter's used pair from our trash can. She actually had the audacity to try to throw them away! While they were beat and worn, I still sold them on eBay for $32 bucks. Not bad for something that almost saw the landfill!

Uggs for cheap
Now that it's the Christmas shopping season, Uggs are even more sought after then ever. Used pairs of Uggs can fetch big cash dollars on eBay. I recently benefited from the Uggs craze. I bought these kid's Uggs at a yard sale, paying only five dollars for the pair. Can you believe that? I honestly can't understand how anyone could sell a perfectly good pair of Uggs at a yard sale for so cheap? Because the price was so low, I wondered if the boots were fake? Holding them in my hand, I closely examined them inside and out for any tell-tale signs of a counterfeit boot. Finally, I decided to just asked the women where she bought them? I explained to her that there were some counterfeits out there, so I just wanted to be sure. Mrs. Dude was with me that particular day and later told me she couldn't believe I asked the seller if they were real! I wasn't trying to insult the women. In this business you can't take any chances. The last thing I need is an eBay buyer whacking me with negative feedback because I sold them knock-off Uggs! Fortunately, the seller didn't get offended and reassured me they were genuine Uggs. She  explained further that she bought them for her daughter who had quickly grew out of them. This explained the excellent condition the boots were in. Now convinced the Uggs were real, I gladly handed the lady a five dollar bill.

As I said, Uggs are a hot seller on eBay. I knew the faster I got them on-line, the sooner I'd be paid. After a few photos showing the boot's upper, sole and inner liner, I posted my five buck Uggs on eBay. Just as I hoped, bidders went crazy for them. The Uggs topped out with a final auction bid price of $45 dollars. A good deal for the buyer and an even better deal for me!

If you are lucky enough to have a used pair of Uggs in the house, now is the best time to sell them. No matter what the condition-from brand new to old and worn, you will find an eBay buyer!

    1. Becky-As long as they do the job, right? I bet if you had those little Ugg labels and stuck them on the back of your Kmart boot, no one would know the difference!

      (In fact, your Kmart boots and the Uggs are probably made in the same factory in China!)
