Ebay Sales for the week April 19-25, 2015

Total Items in Store: 417
Items Sold: 23
Cost of Items Sold: $33
Total Sales: $527.44
Highest Price Sold: $54.95 (Vintage portable b&w TV)
Average Price Sold: $21.97
International Sales: 1 (GSP)
Returns: 0
Money Spent on New Inventory This Week: $12

The total sales do not include income from shipping.  I charge shipping on everything except for ties.  And I only sold 1, so minus $1.93  for that.

So the week prior was my first time hitting $400 in sales and this past week my first time hitting $500 in sales. Very exciting. I’m only at a little over 400 listings but am selling something every day.

Ebay has really bee rockin’ for me lately.  I hope it continues!

The world famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

wax museum tieThis tie was purchased by Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Las Vegas.  I wonder who’s going to be wearing it?  My hubby thinks it’s Obama.  Maybe it is, or perhaps they are getting ready for the 4th of July?  What do you think?

It would be fun to go there and see it worn by one of the wax figures.  LOL

I know some people have sold items to movie studios etc.  But I’m excited about this one.  LOL


soulThis week’s edition of Weirdbay has a lady selling her soul (upon her death) in order to raise $ for oral surgery.  Here’s what she writes in her listing:

Selling my Soul to pay my bills, have my nasal septum fixed and so I can get the VERY Expensive Oral Surgeries I’m in need of.

What you will receive is a signed contract stating once I die my Soul will be the property of you and you alone.
As you can see by my main picture I’m holding Holy Water in a Church so my Soul is pure….for now….lol
(I actually wanted to start my bidding at $60,000.00 which is what I really needed to start it at but eBay won’t allow it.)
I also have a gofundme page for anyone that would like to just help me with the Oral Surgeries. 

So how’s Ebay been treating you guys lately? It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend here in Chicago and I hope it’s great for you guys too!



  1. That’s really exciting about the tie!! I hope you’re able to find out what figure it ends up hanging on. Neat! As for selling ones’ soul? That’s just plain weird. I need oral surgery too, but I’m working by butt off to pay for it. They will give me a 10% discount if I pay in cash, so I’m saving up. Surgery is scheduled for June.

    1. Thanks Lorraine. It would be fun to figure out who it is. And I’m glad you’re not willing to sell your soul for all those dental fees you guys have got going on! 😉 LOL

      I haven’t seen a new post from you in a little bit..hope you are doing well!

  2. “$54.95 (Vintage portable b&w TV)”

    I just picked one of these up this weekend for $1! I don’t know if it works yet. I have to find a cable that will work with it. I’m worried I’ll have trouble selling mine for as high as yours. I haven’t listed it yet but it’s this exact model: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-Quasar-TV-Radio-Combo-Car-Adapter-Instructions-Portable-Black-White-XP1467WH-/321733952451?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ae8d683c3

    1. Mine is different than that one. It is about 1/4 of the size. It didn’t have the original cable, but did come with a universal adapter when I purchased it. I do really like vintage electronics. I just sold an old transistor radio yesterday for $30. Good luck with yours!

  3. Congrats on a great week. April was the worst month I’ve had in sales this year. I’m not sure what happened but I just didn’t get as many sales as I did the previous months of this year. I know May will be much better.

    1. Thanks Jason. Sorry to hear April was so bad for you. For me, I am listing more than I have in the past and find some higher priced items as well. I’m hoping for a new post in the next day or so, but last week was even better.
