And the previous week:

Store Week May 2430, 2015

I was afraid I wouldn’t even make $100 bucks that week. Glad I got $162. 🙂

One of the things I wanted to bring up this time was needlepoint kits.  This one went to Australia.

We went to a community garage sale last year and one woman was selling tons of these needlepoints for $1.  I had asked her if I could get them for $.50 each if I bought all of them.  I bought about 15 of them for $.50 each.  Sold several of these already.  They may not be a quick sale, but they are all priced between $22.99 and $31.99 and they sell.  They are easy to store and ship and the COGS couldn’t be better.  I’m always looking for them.  Come to think of it.  I just sold another one of these with a winter scene to Australia a couple of weeks ago too.

Have you guys ever sold these?  Which ones do you pick up?

This week’s edition of Weirdbay

I didn’t know this, but you can buy voodoo spells on Ebay.  Perhaps there is one out there that will help me sell all of my inventory?  Just Kidding.  This kind of stuff actually freaks me out.

This person actually sells quite a lot of these things.  I checked her completeds and she’s sold 23 of these in the last couple of weeks.

Another weird thing on Ebay was brought to my attention by Chris from Flipping A Dollar.

He was doing some research on military pants and came across this seller:

That’s the great thing about Ebay..you can find a buyer for just about anything.  Some sellers are proud their items come from smoke free and pet free homes.  Others, like this one, are forth right and even show the cat that the cat hair on their clothes come from.  LOL

I love what they write in their listings:

Cat hair included at no extra charge!

One of our dogs is shedding quite a bit right now and it’s driving me crazy.  I’m finding here hair everwhere…and I’m sure a few have probably gotten stuck here or there too.  🙁  But I try my hardest to not include any dog hair when I’m shipping my items!

What’s new with you guys?  How are your sales?

  1. That cat is making my day! 🙂 Congrats on your sales! I sell needlepoint kits, too. I’ve found the most profitable ones to be anything Dimensions Gold and Bucilla Christmas Stocking Kits.

  2. A couple of years ago I bought a whole bunch of NOS pillowcase embroidery kits. They sold fairly well, but a few lingered. I haven’t been lucky enough to find needlepoint kits that are sealed, otherwise I’d buy them. As for the voodoo doll, well I bought a sage stick once to smudge my house and get rid of any unwanted spirits, so yeah, I guess there’s a market for everything. lol! And I had a cat when I was young that looked exactly like that one! Her name was Tiger. Hilarious listing photo!

    1. Lorraine, One of my dogs’ names is Tiger. He’s a miniature pinscher. A true tiger he is! 🙂 And I totally believe in spirits and ghosts, etc. Just am a scaredy cat about that kind of stuff.

  3. I buy needlepoint kits. I look for ones that are a low price and hopefully sealed. I’ve also sold two partially finished pieces recently for decent money and some vintage finished pieces.

    1. Hey Nancy. Good to know that partially finished ones sell to. I have to check into that. I’ve seen some finished one, but usually pass those up. Gotta do a bit more research there!

    1. Nice flip on that stocking. Those do sell really well. Hope to come across one of the Gold collections. Amazing resale on those! You just reminded me that I need to look down on the bottom shelves of the Christmas aisle…I usually just quickly scan that section. I’m still hoping to find some National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation hallmark ornaments. LOL

    1. I have two dogs and I should probably utilize this same strategy. LOL I’m find too many dog hairs getting stuck under my tape. It does drive me nuts! 🙂

  4. Hi there! I seemed to have been missing your postings again just recently.

    I have sold the needlework kits and they do well. However, recently I have been selling sewing patterns more easily. A friend passed a whole lot over to me to sell and give her the money for a favourite charity.

    I am still selling the vintage and not so vintage knitting patterns. These start to sell around October time and I add into the discription that it is never too early to start crafting for Christmas!

    1. I love how you include that in the description of your listing! You may want to put Christmas crafts into the title if there’s room?

      I am also seeing sewing patterns, but not sure I’ve ever seen knitting patterns. I just recently scored a whole bunch of needle point and latch hook kits at a garage sale. The asking price on them was $2 each. She was me glancing at them and said I could have them all for $.50 each. Score!!
