Weeks #15 and #16 began the next 3-month period of my Rag to Riches Challenge. The first 3 months of my challenge grossed almost $4,500 in sales! The summer months tend to be slow for eBay sales, with folks going on vacation and spending more time outdoors, but I hope to do as well if not better during this next 3-month period.
Here are my top sellers for the past 2 weeks. I paid $1.00 for the pants and between $2-$3 for the other items:
MOTHERHOOD Maternity Brown with Dots Sheer Dress Sz S – sold $16.00
MOTHERHOOD Maternity Red White Sleeveless Dress Sz M – sold $18.50
EDELWEISS Women's Black Wool Blend Ski Pants WITH Stirrups – sold $19.99
BRAND NEW CASUAL CORNER Women's Blue Silk LS Blouse Sz 14 – SOLD $20.00
Tommy Hilfiger Men's Cream Linen Drawstring Pants 44x30 – SOLD $31.00
BRAND NEW GAP White Lined Gore Flare Linen Skirt Sz 8 – sold $37.02
BRAND NEW QUACKER FACTORY Jacket Pink Butterfly Wreath Sz 3X – SOLD $41.00
In my last post, I showed you a couple of Reyn Spooner shirts I had up for auction. I shared the link for the listings and some of you already know how much these sold for. Here they are with Final Bid amount … Drum roll, pleeeze!!
REYN SPOONER DISNEY PIXAR CARS Men's Shirt Sz M – sold $66.72
REYN SPOONER DISNEY PIXAR RATATOUILLE Men's Shirt Sz M – sold $155.50!!
Holy smokes! I had no idea how collectible these shirts are. I was at my fave SA store and was already in line to pay when I spotted these shirts in the rack next to me. I paid $2.50 each, hoping to get $14-$20 each on eBay. Within hours of listing them, I knew I had a hot item.
My first clue was an email from someone who was willing to pay $50 for the Ratatouille shirt if I would end the auction early with Buy It Now. My policy is not to end auctions early, but $50 for a used shirt was tempting. My next clue was the shirt already had 3 bids within a few hours of listing it.
I discovered that Reyn Spooner no longer makes the Disney Pixar shirts, and there is a whole group of folks who are avid Disney Pixar fans willing to pay big bucks for these shirts! Definitely grab these if you find them!
Here’s the bottom line:
|Auction Sales #15 #16||$935.89||Total: $5483.09|
|Cost of Goods:||$106.58||Total: $989.30|
|eBay & PP Fees:||$217.90||Total: $996.82|
|Total Net Profits:||$3496.97|
I’ll continue my recap in future posts by discussing shipping, returns, feedback, customer service plus more. Hope you come back!
