A Fun Month Ahead!

Well June was pretty busy for me, not just resale-wise, that part was actually pretty slow, but I did a lot of photo sessions for a lot of clients and that was great for business but my plan this year has been to take my kids to where I grew up in July and spend the entire month so I wanted to clear up any loose ends before we take off TODAY! This meant lots and lots and lots of editing time but it was all fun and I got it all done in time plus I had time to take my own son's two year photos as well! (Big pat on the back and sigh of relief for me for getting it all done!)

I cannot believe this little goofball is going to be two years old on Sunday; man how time flies sometimes!

On the resale end of things I'm looking forward to taking a break from listing for a month; this of course doesn't mean I won't be sourcing because I can't resist the thrifts and when I see a garage sale sign I go into convulsions if we drive past it! It's a sickness really. I plan on collecting and being picky with what I buy, then come home in August and get all of my fall/back to school items listed up!

Hubby will have to ship out anything that sells this month so while I hope things do continue to sell I hope it doesn't get too crazy for him. I have a hard time letting other people do things for me that I'm used to doing on my own all the time; I trust that he will take just as good of care of those sold items as I do but it always makes me nervous!

Sales were ho-hum for June. It started off painfully slow but then in the last few days of the month things picked up and I ended up with some decent totals and some fun finds too.

My hubs and I celebrated our 7th anniversary in June and my mom came over to sit with the kids overnight so we could go relive our kid-free days! This of course meant hitting up a couple garage sales kid-free too! It was late in the afternoon but we got to one charity yard sale and one church rummage sale that was actually closing when we got there. I was so surprised at the church sale to find my first Heath Ceramics plates! I couldn't believe they were still there for one and for the other it was 1/2 price on everything and I got all 3 of them for a whopping $2.00!  Hubs also did some wheeling and dealing and we picked up a box full of vintage blue mason jars for $20 which I cleaned up and flipped for $50 within a couple of days.

At that first sale the only thing I ended up grabbing were a bunch of loveys! Oh I do love the loveys! There were 3 Bunnies by the Bay, 1 Carters and 1 Blankets and Beyond all for $3! Two of them have already sold and my son has kind of adopted the Carters puppy so I think we'll keep him a while longer.

 I adore Bunnies by the Bay items. Their plush are so soft and cuddly, it's no wonder they are so expensive brand new! This guy sold for $18 with free shipping that cost me $2.

This guy sold for a whopping $25 with free shipping and fast too, I will definitely keep buying this brand if I see it! I think this guy might have been a hard to find one I only found one other in the completeds and so I listed him high with a best offer option. He sold for full price within a couple days.

I hope you all have a profitable and fun July! I may do a fun finds post if I get around to it at some point this month but otherwise I will see you all in August; time for summer vacation!

  1. That bunnies by the bay one is Adalyn's lovey! Those things are insanely expensive. She won't touch another one me I've tried. She sucks on his ears. Yuck!
