Just 17 days to go and I think I’ll be all right. Although my Craigslist find was a huge help, I raided a TJ Max for safe measure. I picked up a few Young Justice figures, 2 Kups, and a Shoa Khan. I also picked up an eBay shipment of 9 Star Wars 12 inch Collector Series figures. I’m assuming that a little diversity should only help.
Lately, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into my pricing strategy. One aspect that’s been bothering me quite a bit is what made me think that I could sell a 25th Anniversary Lady Jae for $55? Why did I believe that although they sell for $65 on amazon, I’ll just happen to run into some obsessed Lady Jae fan who missed out on that figure and has been holding out, hoping to find deal for the last 5 years and my $10 discount is all it takes to push him over the edge.
All prices are coming down. No Marvel Universe will be priced over $25. The vast majority will be between $15- $20, G.I. Joes won’t be over $30, and my newly obtained Star Wars Collector Series figures shouldn’t be over $35.
Notice my constant use of 5 and 0? That’s also going to stop. I’ll just pick a number between 0-5 and end the price with that. Not on everything, but enough to break it up a bit. Maybe make me look a bit less like a dollar store.
I’ve also acquired a shelf that I plan on using for the back of my booth. It’s six feet tall, which should be beneficial. I plan on topping it with the Falcon/box, which I’m hoping will form of some sort of beacon for my booth.
Not much going on in my comic book department. I will do another run through of my keep boxes and hopefully move a few into the for sale boxes. I would like to have 4 short boxes of single issues and then spread my sets out across the table.
The only worry that I’m having at the moment is the requested donation of $100 worth of goods to be provided as giveaways. I feel like I should give stuff I can’t sell, but wonder if it would be an obvious jerk move. Maybe mix it 50/50 and throw in some of @christinemeh prints.
