We live in the great Pacific Northwest, which I love, most of the time, except I have Seasonal Affective Disorder so by February I REALLY start to dread the dreary days. Luckily, even though its been pretty rainy we occasionally get a break and its now warm enough to at least go run around in the grass for a bit. Spring is here, and I'm excited for the next month or so. I want to get out in the garage to start painting furniture again and of course, more garage sales! I went to one this weekend that was inside, it was a fundraiser for my daughter's elementary school. We spent about $17 and got a few good things for resale, a game, a basket to use in my newborn photography, some clothes for Scooter here and a Little Tikes slide!
Sales the last couple of weeks have been pretty great. I have sold off all of the Little Einsteins toys I bought from Craigslist for a really great profit, looks like everything has been delivered according to tracking as well! I'll still keep the money in Paypal for another week just to make sure that I don't get any returns though. I'm still doing well with the quick flips and spring cleaning. This morning I was putting dishes away and noticed some crumbs in a drawer which spurred a 2 hour kitchen cleanout complete with purging of all the things that haven't been used in over 2 years. It feels sooooo good to get rid of some of the clutter around our little house!
Looks like around the blogosphere that sales have been pretty consistent with everyone so here's hoping we ALL have a great spring! I have another consignment sale this weekend (2 of 3 spring sales) and I'm hoping to make around $100-150, not much but I'm selling everything really cheap in hopes that I don't have to pick anything up afterward! I want to get all new items for my last sale in May from early season garage sales!
Remember my church sales finds from last week? A few things I bought that day have already sold! Whoop! I'll leave you with those sales for now, have a great week!
|Keen Gypsum Athletic Shoes with Box - Paid $3 at the church sale - sold within 2 days for $59.95. |
Makes a nice $35 profit after fees and shipping!
|New with Tags Laurel Burch Cat Print Canvas tote bag - Paid $6 at Value Village, sold the next morning with a best offer of $28 and already got a rave review on my feedback profile!|
This next item wasn't from last weekend's finds, but its another example of my non-main character BOLO list! He's from Lilo & Stitch but was not a main character. Therefore less sold originally, which means harder to find now and that equals more money!
|Jumba Plush Beanbag Toy from Disney Store - Paid less than $1 at a charity thrift store - Sold in its 2nd month to a doctor in Manhattan for $43! $30 profit after fees and shipping, he's small too, less than 8" tall!|
