A woman has revealed how she scooped up over $9,000 worth of luxury designer goods after buying a lost cargo palette.
Ashley is a full-time mum and eBay seller, regularly buying back pallets and reselling them for a profit with the help of her husband TJ.
And their latest purchase saw the couple, who live in Utah, hit the jackpot by sharing the results on Asley’s YouTube channel. Hustle at home mom.
The mum-of-three bagged a palette of mysterious clothes, most new and some used for $786 at auction and was amazed at what was inside.
Speaking in the recent video, Ashley said: “I’m shaken, I think there are some real gems here guys, I’m so excited to unbox this.”
The designer’s contents alone were worth $9,176, including a Fear of God suede jacket costing around $3,932, a Chanel garment bag at $91, a Canada Goose jacket at $1,442, a Louis Vuitton sweater at $524 and a $916 Nike jacket.
Ashley says: “It was such an insane transport…we really couldn’t believe everything we were finding.
“I’ve done a lot of clearances, I’ve never had anything like this, in my five years of reselling I don’t think I’ve ever come across anything like this.
“It’s the least I’ve ever spent on a palette, it’s the least I’ve ever spent on clearance and I can’t believe this was all in it.
“It’s better than Christmas.”
Ashley acknowledged that designer products could also be replicas and she will go through the process of authenticating them and if she has any fakes she could end up losing money as they are non-refundable.
However, that wasn’t the case, with everything in the palette being professionally authenticated, although she admits it will be some time before she sees a profit.
“With a luxury like this, the downside is that it takes longer to sell, it’s a little harder to know what to do with it,” says Ashley.
“Super crazy that everything I got out of it was indeed authentic.”
