A Trickle

I haven't been shopping really in two weeks.  Life has been crazy and I've been taking care of some health issues, getting ready for Christmas, etc.   I really don't sell that much in December so I just pray for an added bonus now and then to get me some extra mad money. 

These are a few of my fun sales from this month.  A few surprises for me, but I like that!
 Fiesta Toys Union Bear Soldier - I picked him up for $1 because I thought he was cute.  And in new condition!  I sold him in 2 days for $30.00
 Lands End new purple vest - sold for $30.00 as well.  I refunded the buyer $5 for shipping since she was only 1 state over and it was really cheap for me.  I try to do that if the amount is too much over, I think it's fair to do and I usually get return customers/stellar reviews that way!
Super ugly Lane Bryant jacket - sold for $20.

I had a great Guess jean jacket that also sold that day for $40.

Picked them both up for $1 each!
I feel a little badly about this sale.  I bought this talking Swiper and my daughter loved it.  She played with it for awhile and then I just kept finding it it random spots, not put away, mixed in with the boys toys, etc.  I helped her clean out her room earlier this month and threw up a listing.  It sold in 24 hours for $35.00  

Buh-bye Swiper.  Thanks for the fun 6 months you spent cluttering up our house.  

And remember Madeline?
 She sold this week for $70.00

I'm thinking I might have a good eye for plush!  It's a pain to store with a 4 year old daughter though, that's for sure.  She wants to keep everything!

 I finally sold this: 
 Bought for $2.50 at a yard sale in September.  Sold for $120.00

The best was selling my iphone 5.  I was a bit sad, we just purchased it for $400 and found out we needed to switch from Sprint to T-Mobile.  So I ended up with a Note 2, which I LOVE.  But I liked the iphone too.  Oh well.  We sold that for $625.  Of course I was a nervous wreck to mail it.  I shipped it Priority, with delivery/signature confirmation and insured.  

I got a message from the buyer the day after it was delivered asking for the tracking number.  I replied with it, asking "not sure if you still need this since I show it was delivered to you at 10:09 a.m. yesterday morning."  
HOPING that all is well.  They have not left any further messages or feedback so my money is just sitting there waiting until they do, or 2 weeks clears!

  1. Those are some awesome sales! I don't know what a "Swiper" is, but I love the story. I do the same with my kids. If something sits around the house too long and I think they won't use it much goes up on eBAy.

    We recently got a free copy of Disney's "Brave" DVD. I knew the kids would watch the movie once then the DVD would collect dust. So I sold it on eBay right from under their noses making $25 dollars! Still don't think they know the DVD is gone! Sometimes you have to be a realist with stuff, hee-hee!

    Great sales and blog....Dude! @
