It just seems the days aren’t long enough. Between catching up on my listings and more car trouble, I just didn’t get a chance to post an update last week.
Well, the previous Week #9 was an awesome week, but Week #10 was not so great. I didn’t get a chance to post as many new listings for clothing and that made a huge difference. I had 108 auctions, but half were non-clothing items that had been in my store for awhile. Only 8 of these ended in sales for a whopping total of $31 … disappointing to say the least.
I did have a few clothing sales, but not any real major sales. Here are my two top sellers:
DIANE VON FURSTENBERG Women's Silk Navy Blue Blouse 3X ~ Sold $15.65
I paid $1.00 for it at a small church thrift store. Twice a month they have $12-a-bag sale, and you can really fit a lot of stuff in a bag.
NEW JACLYN SMITH Black Leather Lambskin Skirt Size 22W ~ Sold $21.00
Although this skirt is a Jaclyn Smith K-mart brand, it was really very nice. The picture is not great, but this skirt was brand new with its original tags, priced at $59.99. Someone got a very sweet deal!
And, just for show-and-tell, here’s a mug I sold at auction:
OTAGIRI SLEEPING KITTY CAT & YARN MUG JONAH'S WORKSHOP ~ Sold for $12.99
Last week, I wasn’t able to make it to Rag Day so I missed out on any great buys. Luckily, I still had enough inventory to list for this week. I haven’t found any more Tommy Bahama shirts or St. John knit skirts … but I keep hoping and looking!
The previous weekend was a great day for yard sales and I found some great stuff, which I posted about here. I’ve got a few items currently listed, and I still have some clothing items to list for next week. Maybe it’ll help bring those numbers up. Here’s how we did for Week #10:
|Auction Sales:||$201.76||Total: $3185.30|
|Cost of Goods:||$41.00||Total: $631.35|
|eBay & PP Fees:||$56.38||Total: $630.91|
|Total Net Profits:||$1923.04|
Online sales, including eBay store, totaled $239.44! Not every week can be great but THAT’S still cash for trash!
