What the eBay?!? Wednesday
Did you know that Dollar Tree stores started right here in Norfolk, Virginia? Check out their history here. I'd love to hear how common Dollar Tree is where you live, but here in it's home state there is one on every block it seems. I'm aware of Dollar Tree brands and its always surprises me to see them listed on eBay.
Dollar Tree does sell some surplus from closeouts, so every once in awhile you can find $8 sunscreen for a dollar, but much of what they sell is manufactured for them. If you see "Manufactured for Greenbrier International" it is made specifically for Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree is an "everything's $1" store.
One of the most popular Dollar Tree brands I see on eBay is "Royal Norfolk" a housewares (plates, mugs, knives) brand.
Check out these SOLD listings for Royal Norfolk by Greenbrier International..
What do you think? Were these people ROYALLY ripped off? Or does demand set the price here? Have you knowingly sold Dollar Tree or Dollar Store brands and made a decent profit? I'd love to hear about it!
After I posted this morning I went thrifting and low and behold what did I find? Some lime green Royal Norfolk bowls for $1.98 each!
