Hello Father, it’s been over 3 weeks since my last confession, I mean blog post!!!  LOL

I wish I could post more often as I have a list mile long of this I’d like to write about, but I just don’t have the time.  I own a full time business, have 3 boys, a hubby, a household and a part-time Ebay business that I run.  I just don’t have the time.  Any spare time I have right now is spent sourcing for inventory, researching anything and everything about Ebay and Amazon sales and listing.

I had a goal to list 5 items a day, EVERY day, but that is just possible for me right now.  🙁

Have sales increased for you guys?  The 4th quarter (the busiest time in online sales) has started.  And I’m definitely seeing the increase in sales.  I wish I had all my inventory listed.  Unfortunately this is a busy time for Ebay sales and the busiest time for my other business as well.  Ha!

Okay, enough rambling…I’ll just share some of my recent sales.

Feel free to click on the photos to enlarge them.

You’ll notice some decent sales, except for the baby romper, which was listed way too long, isn’t an expensive brand and I just wanted to get rid of it..paid a buck, shipping $2, so still made out.  That was a purchase from March, I know better now what to source.

A couple of things I wanted to mention.  I’ve started sourcing for brand new inventory as well.  You’ll notice the Land’s end capes.  I bought those on clearance for $11.94 each..with free shipping.  I did the shopping right from my computer.  I bought 14 of them…wish I would have bought more…needed to sell 4.5 in order to make my money back and everything else was pure profit.  I just sold my last one today..

I subscribe to some coupon site and found out about the sale.  This kind of sourcing is the best bang for your buck.  It is basically 1 item with multiple quantities.  It would have taken me just as much time to list one of these as it did 14 of them.

Same thing with the Fisher Price NEW puppy.  I scored those at a thrift store..they were all brand new (without box), and priced at $3.99.  I bought 10 of them.  My cost $40.  I sold 3 of them in the last couple of days at $28.99 each.  I only needed to sell 2 to make my money back.

What’s selling well for you?  Do tell.  Let’s learn from each other!

Happy weekend and happy selling! 🙂

      1. Veronica, You’re welcome. It’s less work that way, but profits are higher. But it’s also harder to find these types of things. But it’s good to keep your eyes and ears open all the time.

        That’s awesome about the puppy! They sat with no sales for a couple of months and just now are starting to fly off the shelf. They are adorable!

        Thanks for your comment! 🙂

    1. Thanks Lorraine! I don’t want to brag or anything, just share and show what does well on ebay and what doesn’t. This is how I’ve learned. I have tons of people I follow on Favorite Sellers on Ebay (including you 😉 And a couple times a week I check their completeds..just to see what does well and what doesn’t. I need to keep my eyes peeled for religious stuff now! 😉

      I picked that Arabia pitcher up at a garage sale for $1. I had no idea of the value, but it looked like it might be worth something. It did fairly well, but I’ve seen other colors do better…I think the green maybe? Good thing for the BOLO list.

      Thanks so much for commenting!
