Remember that yard sale on my very own street that I was so excited about a few weeks back? If not you can re-live my "best yard sale of the season" post HERE!
Well I finally got my Toy Story original toy, Mr. Mike, listed last week! I listed him high at $109.99 with free shipping OBO. I immediately started getting offers in and they were low, like $50-$70 but I countered at $90 on a couple of them and one person took the bait! He sold for $90 + $20 shipping to Italy! Granted it ended up costing me $28.87 to ship it there because I didn't weigh it beforehand but I'm still very happy with my flip! If he'd have never been opened he'd have been worth about $200+... Now lets hope it gets there in one piece!
Toy Story toys are always a "Be on the Lookout" items. I have sold several items from Jessie dolls, Zurg, Potato Heads, Bullseye, etc and they ALWAYS give me a great profit! Mr. Mike is a definite BOLO and the other characters that are not as common in the movies are great because they tend to be more rare and worth substantially more!
I also sold these cuties last night for $9.99 with free shipping! They were in a grab bag of things at the thrift store that I paid $3 for. I have sold everything else in the bag already for a profit so these were all profit for me! Funny thing with these is that I got an email after they had sold from someone who wanted me to sell them to her for 1/2 price because her daughter liked them. I responded very nicely that they had sold already that evening for my full asking price. Some people are so strange!
