Tips for eBay Sellers from a Hollywood Prop Master By Greg Holden AuctionBytes

Tips for eBay Sellers from a Hollywood Prop Master
By Greg Holden

Ever wonder where the producers of AMC's Mad Men get the vintage period pieces for the 1960's set? AuctionBytes
Contributing Editor Greg Holden went right to the source and spoke to
Hollywood Property Master Scott Buckwald, who's worked on the sets of
hit TV shows and the big screen. In part one, Scott shared some
behind-the-scenes stories (did you know an eBay seller played a part in
creating Mad Men character Betty Draper's wardrobe?). In today's
installment, Scott shares some tips on what eBay and online sellers can
do to attract professional buyers.

Last week, I wrote about Scott Buckwald, who works as a Property Master for movies and TV shows such as AMC's series
Mad Men. Scott has been buying online for years, both for his own
collecting and for objects that eventually appear on the big and small
screens. People turn to him all the time for advice. "When anyone among
my friends or family needs to find anything, I'm always the first one
they call," he laughs. "I've bought everything."


With that in mind, it was only natural to ask Buckwald for advice for online sellers. What are some things sellers can do to make their sales easier to find, and to make it more
likely that buyers will check out their listings and eventually buy
them? Scott shares some tips along with some things that turn off
buyers. He also weighs in on whether he thinks searching for props on
the Internet has become easier over time, and talks about the most
interesting thing he's hunted for as a Hollywood prop master!

Mint condition means mint!
"When I am doing props for a period show such as The Prestige (which was set in 1890s London, England) I have to find a lot of things online,"
Scott says. "The thing that turns me off the most is when an ad says
something is in "mint condition" and then the seller goes on to describe
problems with it. If it has two buttons missing or there's a scratch on
it, it's not in mint condition."
