Tips for selling ties:
1. Inspect the tie closely for stains. Unfortunately, ties are susceptible to stains from food and beverages.
2. Make sure the label is securely attached to the back.
3. Check for loose threads or unraveling.
4. If a very high end brand, make sure to authenticate. Neckties can be fake like designer handbags and jeans.
5. Consider selling in lots, and group together by brand for the best results.
