Hubby and I were at an estate sale in the spring when I picked up this vintage brush and hand mirror.
I paid $20 for this thing. Gasp!!! I know it’s a lot, but I really, really loved it and felt someone else would too. I took a best offer of $60 plus shipping! 🙂
Same thing with this brass owl ruler. Bought this at another estate sale for $2 and took a best offer of $30 plus shipping. I tried cleaning it and even scratched it up a bit..but it still sold.
Both of the above items are things that my hubby would never even consider for resale..he would pass them right up or think they they are junk and no one would buy them. I love proving him wrong! 😉 He’s usually right about everything, so it feels good when I do. LOL
Same thing with these loveys too. He actually made fun of me for buying them. Sure these weren’t big sellers, but I paid $.49 each for them and it took just a couple of minutes to list (I too try to group things together…make a listing and then just duplicate and change a couple of keywords). I was actually nervous about buying that top one. It’s actually in not so great shape. It’s been washed a lot and repaired already. I made sure to point out all the flaws and it still sold. Someone was trying to replace a beloved lovey!!
It really is true that “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure!”. That’s the really cool thing about Ebay, there are so many unique items for sale and so many unique people to buy them. I’m glad we are all different and have different tastes and likes..that’s what makes it so interesting!
Have you guys purchased anything that your spouse/so made fun of and then sold for a nice profit? Do share!
Updated – Forgot to mention this Moses Basket that I bought and sold for $134. Again, it’s nothing my hubby would even glance at!
