Recently, I was shopping at Goodwill when I ran across something that looked vaguely familiar. It was a size medium sweatshirt with a picture of a deer on it and for the life of me I couldn't figure out where I have seen it before. I know weird things sell on ebay, and I always think to myself, "If it is here at Goodwill, then that means someone has bought it in the past." Meaning, that if someone has bought it in the past, then there is a market for this item. I just need someone to buy it at the price I'm willing to sell it to them :). Anyway, I didn't want to waste to much time thinking about where I've seen this hideous sweatshirt, so I whipped out my smartphone to check ebay's completed listings. I wasn't too surprised when I saw that they were selling for good money (since I know this is a niche type of item), but after reading a few descriptions I quickly realized where I've seen this shirt and why it was so popular.
Boom, there it is. During the video "Thrift Shop", Macklmore is wearing this deer sweatshirt and has made this vintage look popular again. There are many sellers on ebay who have been successful selling this sweatshirt, and made me think, "How many deer sweatshirt are out there still?" After a quick search on google, it looks like this shirt is being nicknamed, "Macklemore Deer Sweater", (however the one I found was a sweatshirt), and there are many sellers on ebay and etsy who are benefiting from this trend.
Your title is very important when you are selling this shirt. You want to make sure that you are using keywords like, "Macklemore" or "Hipster". I don't know how long this trend will last, but for now, its fun to see these shirts that probably wouldn't have any life left in them. As Macklemore said in his song Thrift Shop, "One man's trash is another mans come up". So keep you eye out for these types of shirts, you never know what will bring you some money!
