Every week seems to be better than the one before! And it definitely helps to list more. I had 150 auctions listed, which ended with 63 sales! Eleven of those were non-clothing items but clothing has been selling like … well, hot cakes. Here are the best sellers:
APT 9 Women's Lined Full Skirt Spring Floral Print Sz 6 ~ sold $10.25
TOMMY HILFIGER Womens Denim Jeans Cropped Jacket Size L ~ sold $14.50
TOMMY BAHAMA Men's Silk Hawaiian Resort Shirt Size XL ~ sold $15.50
MOTHERHOOD Green & White Spaghetti Strap Dress Size S ~ sold $16.50
ST JOHN COUTURE Misses Sheer Print SS Blouse Size 4 ~ sold $20.49
MOTHERHOOD Maternity Black Linen Sleeveless Dress Size M ~ sold $21.00
EILEEN FISHER Misses Lilac 2-Pc Blouse Outfit Sz PS EUC ~ sold $21.75
MOTHERHOOD Maternity Green & Black SS Spring Dress Sz S ~ sold $25.89
Black LULULEMON ATHLETICA Zip-Front Jacket Sz M 8-10 ~ Sold $29.00
… and my top sellers of the week:
ST JOHN COLLECTION Womens Black Knit Skirt Sz 4 ~ Sold $36.00 and $50.50
The St. John items were great finds and are always top sellers, but the surprise is the Motherhood brand. I took a chance and bought five maternity dresses. Four of them have sold at over $10. Dresses and skirts continue to be popular sellers.
The local SA thrift store continues to have Rag Day Mondays so my cost for dresses, skirts, blouses and shirts is $2; and women’s slacks are 2-for-$1 … just 50 cents each! This really helps with my profit margin and why this works for me. I also include a $2 handling fee with the shipping cost. This helps cover fees and other expenses and is included in my weekly profits.
Here’s how we did this week:
|Auction Sales:||$752.04||Total: $2983.54|
|Cost of Goods:||$94.00||Total: $590.35|
|eBay & PP Fees:||$147.46||Total: $574.53|
|Total Net Profits:||$1818.66|
Today was 50%-off entire store at the SA. Cost of goods is a little higher so didn’t buy much. I did find out that the other thrift store had their $1-day yesterday … all clothing was $1 … boo hoo, I missed it!! They said they have no advance notice so it’s hit or miss. Hmmm? Something to look into …
Yard sales tomorrow with my BFF Viv … looking forward to finding some great treasures!
Online sales, including eBay store, totaled $801.25! Now THAT’S cash for trash!
