Well, I'm still selling but maybe not like a mad woman.
Cuz selling things makes me happy, not mad.
We sold the black futon/couch thing that was purchased from a student who was moving.
We paid $35 and we sold it for $60.
I grabbed this cute little wood coffee table down at Goodwill for $7.
The front legs were pretty scratched up so I priced it at $20.
I sold it a couple of days after posting it on Craigslist.
We also sold Josh's loft bed for $100 (had previously bought it at GW for $25) and a set of bunk beds that we were no longer using.
As for ebay, I sold about 100 items this month and it just keeps getting better and better.
Maybe because I am figuring out what I am doing?
Here are some highlights...
This beautiful yellow silk JCrew dress was purchased at GW for $6.
It was a formal style, which doesn't resell well, but JCrew is a pretty hot brand so I thought I would take a chance.
It sold for $29.99 which is what I listed it at.
I bought this cute girl's Gap denim skirt for $2.
I was going to give it to my 10 year old daughter for school but she didn't want it.
Apparently she had trouble walking in the long skirts.
So, I took it and listed it on ebay.
It sold for $20.51.
Chicos is another great brand which resells really well.
These black stretch Travelers style pants were purchased for $2.50.
They sold for $21.47.
They surprised me when they sold for $11.51.
I almost didn't buy it, even though it was only $3.
It was brand new with the button covers and a pin hanging on the front in bubble wrap and it was a plus size which is a plus (hee...hee...get it? Plus size being a plus. Ok, not funny? Guess you had to be there?)
Maybe because it wasn't something I would wear or because I didn't feel like it was exactly trendy but I hummed and hawed for awhile before putting it in my cart.
Even though I usually don't start my dresses under $10, I was concerned about this one so I started the listing at $7.
I had barely got it listed when it got it's first bid.
Color me shocked.
Color me very shocked when it sold, with multiple bids, for $28.
But I love it!
Anyway, my selling will have to slow down for awhile as canning season is in full swing.
Guess I should slow down on the buying as well right now.
But that is the fun part so we will see...
