After a busy weekend of canning salsa, spaghetti and pizza sauce (over 50 jars!) I took off Monday to see if I could find some new things for my store.
I mentioned how prices are going up for me and where I would spend $1 (ONE!!!!) I now have to settle for 50% off. Which means pants are $4, shirts and other items are closer to $5 and a pant suit would be $10. Not terrible. But I feel like I have to shop so careful now. I'd hate to spend that money and get home to find pants had already been hemmed, or a stain somewhere. Missing buttons I can handle - but not fixable stuff? Nope!
I spent close to $100 on my experiment. Here what I found (that I have listed so far - still working on that) and I'll keep you updated with what I made from each item.
Ann Taylor Size 6 Red Plaid Silk Blouse (I love the French cuffs on this!)
(Now don't laugh - this brand sells well and I would totally wear this if I taught Kindergarten. Ok, maybe not - but I would love the woman who did wear it for my kids!)
SCORE!! I love it when I find this!
SOLD for $30.00
I'll have to post the rest of what I found later on when I get it listed. I'm hoping that I will break even or make some profit on this sooner than later! I felt a little sick spending that much money but then I did buy things I can list at higher prices - so maybe that is the trade off - right?
