|This isn't even everything I got!|
The first sale we hit up was a church sale and it was "by donation" except it was kind of hilarious. In my opinion, "by donation" means that they will take pretty much what you offer for the items as this has been my experience in the past. These ladies thought their junk was super special because they were trying to haggle the offers! They told the lady in front of me that a $2 offer for 2 2lb. weights wasn't a fair offer and she should pay $3. She told them she didn't really need them so if they didn't take 2 she'd leave them. They took the 2.
I paid $7 for my junk which included:
|2 American Girl Doll Outfits - Hoping for $20-25 per outfit!|
|2 Build a Bear rabbits + 2 extra Outfits - Will list the outfits separately and then probably donate the rabbits.|
|A Bone China Starbucks mug from 2008 - will ask $30 for this!|
**Update** I listed the mug this morning for $39.99 OBO with free shipping and it sold 2 hours later for my full asking price! Love me a quick sale! It should only cost a few bucks to ship too so that is a great profit, my money from the entire day yard saling back and I haven't even listed everything else from the day yet! Whoop!
At the other sales I picked up some Thomas plush, more clothes for the fall consignment sale, some silver plated flatware, a Revere ware mini tea kettle, some pyrex, a pair of roller skates for Naomi, a DVD and a new cutting board for the condo as well. Like I said before, I can't believe I amost didn't go!
Sales last week were pretty good:
|Starbucks Ceramic Travel Mug - New condition - Sold for $31 with free shipping. I think I paid $1 for this at a garage sale.|
|Prana Capri Pants - Wore these for about 2 months and they were too big so I sold them for $16 with free shipping. I originally paid $8 for them for myself.|
The best sale I had were the above 3 mugs. Remember the Custard & Pupcake mug score from a couple months back? Well these are all from the same series, just not as rare as the puppy mug. I actually got the Strawberry Shortcake one a long time ago for $1 and Naomi was using it as her hot chocolate mug all winter since it wasn't worth much on its own on eBay.
I went to my local thrift to find a dress for my friends wedding a few weeks ago and couldn't resist checking out the other goodies and happend upon Apple Dumplin and Huckleberry Pie. There was also a Raspberry Tart but I left her behind because she was cracked. It wasn't til I got home that I realized I had paid $5 per mug, ouch! That is way more than I usually spend on a mug but they ended up selling a few days after being listed for $44.99 + $8 shipping!
I will always buy these little mugs when I see them, even Strawberry because I can save her til I have a set to sell.
I'm holding another garage sale this weekend, this time at my sister's house, since she's moving and has a ton to sell. I'm not hoping for a huge profit but hopefully I can unload some old inventory and be good and done with it all! I'll let you know how it goes.
Any big yard sale scores this past weekend?
