It was another great week … the best so far! The weather must be warming up because dresses and swimsuits have been selling. I listed 52 new items at auction and relisted 18, for a total of 70 auctions this week. Lots of work, but it’s for sure: more listings equal more sales. Here are some of my top sellers:
FRESH PRODUCE Women's Cotton T-Shirt Shift Dress Size L ~ sold $10.51
JAMS WORLD Art Print Spaghetti Straps Dress Women's Sz L ~ sold $11.61
BEACH CABANA WOMEN’S BLUE GREEN SWIMSUIT SIZE L ~ sold $13.00
Chico's Travelers Brown Flare Hem Long Skirt Sz 2 Large ~ sold $16.00
TOMMY BAHAMA Men's Silk Blue Casual Resort Shirt Sz M ~ sold $16.51
Even though this Tommy Bahama shirt had a missing button, the shirt came with 2 extra buttons, so I was thrilled when it sold for $16.51. Unfortunately, when I was shipping it, I discovered a few small white spots on the back. I offered the buyer a full refund; but he was still interested in the shirt. In the end, he paid $2.00 (my cost) plus shipping for the shirt. He received the shirt, was happy with it, and still left me positive feedback!
ANN TAYLOR LOFT Women's Black Sleeveless Dress Size 10 ~ sold $21.75
ST JOHN COLLECTION Blue Black Tweed Boucle Skirt 4 ~ sold $30.99
ST JOHN COLLECTION Black & Cream Knit Skirt 4 ~ sold $46.00
… and my top seller of the week:
TOMMY BAHAMA Men's Silk Black Casual Resort Shirt XXL ~ sold $53.99
I totally scored when I found the St. John skirts and the one Tommy Bahama shirt at the thrift store! Of course, I can always count on Ann Taylor, Fresh Produce, Chico’s and Jams World for a good sale.
So, here’s my wild card of the week:
NEW FUBU Men's Black & Red Athletic Shoes Sz 13 M ~ sold $20.00
Someone gave these shoes to DH, but they’re not our style so neither one of my boys would wear them. I finally decided to sell them on eBay. Originally priced at $35.00 then reduced to $19.99, I listed them at $9.99, certain they would not sell on the first round. Was I wrong! They received a bid within 24 hours, and ended up selling for $20. Because they were free, that was 100% profit … ka-ching!
And, guess what? I found more St. John skirts and Tommy Bahama shirts this week at the thrift store. Not only that, but the 2-for-$1 special on women’s slacks was back this week … yahoo! And since dresses and skirts have been selling well, I stocked up on those as well. Will be listing them all this weekend …
Here’s how we did for Week #7:

Next week is looking to be another good week. I’m trying something different by listing a lot of my store inventory (non-clothing) as auctions. We’ll see how that works and where we go from there …
Store sales picked up a little this week, so my total online sales, including eBay store, were $612.29! Now THAT’S cash for trash!
