{OMG} It Sold!

I told you all I would update you if my little Custard & Pupcake mug ever sold. Well, I listed it last night at about 9pm for $119.99 with free shipping. Within 5 min I had a watcher and by an hour later I had 2 questions asking if I'd ship it to Japan. I went to bed hoping that maybe someone would buy it overnight. I don't usually mind shipping overseas but with such a fragile item and for such I high dollar amount I didn't want to have to because that's a lot of money I'd be losing out on if it either broke in transit or was lost at customs.

When I woke up this morning there were 7 watchers and an email from a gentleman in Texas asking if he could purchase it and pay me in 3 days when the EBay Bucks are released for use. I responded that I didn't mind and he bought it about 10 min later and told me that if for some reason the EBay Bucks aren't available in 3 days that he'll just pay with his bank account and that he really appreciated me being so flexible. I don't mind at all as long as buyers communicate with me if payments will be delayed and that I eventually get my money! I can wait 3 days for my hundred bucks!

I am so excited! I have been selling for about 4 years now and this is definitely one of the best flips I've done! Even with all the crazy fees & shipping I should still clear about $95 profit! Makes me wonder if I should have thrown it up there for $150 and let it ride! Oh well, best not to get greedy and be happy with what I did make. I wish all my thrifting trips turned out like yesterday though!

Only 1 garage sale today and it wasn't great. I picked up a Care Bear to try and sell and Naomi found a Stitch plush from Lilo & Stitch - her fav movie this week - got both for $1.
