I had a whopping 3 sales this week, which is better than last week so I can't complain. I ran a couple of auctions this week and they didn't do too bad.
I bought a few random grab bags of silverware at the thrift store a few weeks ago, there was one of these in each baggie. How come they can't match the set up? They want you to have to buy more to get what you want; its stupid in my opinion but whatever. I paid $10.00 for 5 baggies; this is the 1st lot out of the bags that has sold (4 pc National Dynasty Flatware) and it went for $10.50 + shipping. I also sold a bunch of the no name crap pieces in our garage sale a couple of weeks ago for $3 so I have already got my money back; everything else that sells will just be profit so I can't complain!
My daughter R.E.A.L.L.Y. wanted a Talking Jessie Doll a month or so back. My dad was in town and wanted to buy her a belated birthday gift so we went to Toys R Us and I cringed as I watched him pay FORTY DOLLARS for one for her. She adores her so its all worth it but as it always happens... Jessie turned up at Value Village exactly 2 weeks later and for $1.99. Ain't that the way?!
She sold this week at auction for $14.50 + 6.00 shipping. If she'd have had her hat I probably would have set a Buy It Now price of $25.00 but I'm happy with the end result of this auction! The buyer says they are paying tomorrow... fingers crossed!
I also had 3 great sales on Facebook and Craigslist this week making me another $60 in profit so all in all it was a great week but I have inventory coming out of my ears and I need it to get moving so I can make room for more, this is garage sale season after all!
