Forget iPads, diamond earrings and Furbys. The repricing specialists at Appeagle discovered that some of the hottest selling items are classics priced under $20 and they’re flying off the virtual shelves in record numbers.
Appeagle, monitors and adjust prices on over 12 million items being sold each day on such sites as Amazon, eBay and Buy.com. As such, they maintain a keen understanding of what’s hot and what’s not
Their findings prove that the newest and most expensive items are not always the biggest sellers and that classic items still matter; the following 5 revelations:
- Kids Still Care about Cartoons & Claymation Characters
Early holiday shopping saw a sharp rise in sales volume for the Original Christmas Classics Gift Set, a four DVD collection that includes: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas and A Year Without Santa Claus. Price $18.00
