We’ve been doing a lot of garage saling recently (and a little bit of thrift store shopping) and finding some cool stuff. I’m glad that my hubby likes to treasure hunt as much as I do..if only the kids did too. Sometimes we drag them with, and sometimes we leave them at home (how nice to have them at that age).
I’ve been real happy with some recent sales as most of them have been higher priced. I’m willing to spend a little more $ on some items for a better return.
This vintage bottle opener was $.10 in a bin with kitchen utensils at a thrift. Accepted BO of $34.99 (shipping was under $3).
This sweater was purchased at a thrift for $4.99. Accepted BO of $80 (shipped in legal flat rate envelope..$5.35 ish). Found this Men’s sweater in the women’s section. The really interesting thing about Hilda sweaters is that this company went out of business over 20 years ago. The reason? Their sweaters were so well made that they lasted for over 20 years. Once you bought one, you had no need for another one.
Purchased at a thrift for $10. Sold for $134.99. I had a best offer, but the buyer paid full price. Shipping was $29. This thing was huge! I would have asked a higher price, but there was a rip by the foot of the basket. Had it listed for only a few days before it sold.
These shoes were $10 at a garage sale, sold for $62.99 plus shipping. I’m starting to list more and more without bo price. These sold within 2 weeks. I wasn’t too familiar with this brand, but they were new and had a bag..gotta be worth some $, so I took a chance and was happy with my ROI (return on investment).
Bought for $10 at a local school’s toy consignment sale. Accepted bo of $35 plus shipping.
This is one of the ties that my son photographed for me. I’m slowly getting through the listings. This sold within a week at full asking price of $34.99, even though there was a bo on it. Someone wanted this bad. Shipping on ties is about $2.50 ish.
This month I’ve grossed almost $600. I’m so excited as I didn’t do much last year or the . beginning of this year. But I’m getting into it again! Thanks to all the inspirational blogs, podcasts and videos.
I know some people have been mentioning slow sales this month, mine have been really good (for me)..and I attribute it all to listing often. ABL (always be listing), as Jay and Ryanne of Ebay Scavengers always say!
What have been your best recent sales??
