Cash for Trash Wednesday

EBay must be feeling the summer slump, too, because they had another 1-cent listing promo yesterday.  They don’t give much notice so the best I could do was take items out of my store and relist them at auction.  I did manage to list several new items, and I think in all I listed 60 items for 60 cents!  I made them 5-day auctions so they could end Sunday evening, a much better day for bids.

Last week was so-so for sales.  Better than it’s been but still feeling the summer slump.  Here are my best sellers:

CABi Women's White Stretch Long Sleeve Zipper Blouse M – sold $8.99 – paid $0.50


Dr Seuss Scrub Top Pediatrics Size Medium Excellent – sold $8.50 – paid $1


 TOMMY HILFIGER Women's Black Stretch Casual Skirt Sz 16 – sold $10.50 – paid $1


Catherine Coatney Goth Lolita Cosplay Sheer Satin Skirt – sold $19.03 – paid $1


REYN SPOONER DISNEY MICKEY MOUSE HAWAIIAN SHIRT MEN MED – sold $21.50 – paid $1


NORMA KAMALI Women's Stretch Knit Bubble Dress Sz S – sold $24.99 – paid $2


I also sold two more Hallmark ornaments from my store for $25.98:

HALLMARK ORNAMENT REEL FUN SANTA FISHING 1999



Hallmark HOME SWEET HOME PEANUTS SNOOPY 2008 NEW


Does this happen to anyone else?  For the past several years, I’ve noticed a certain phenomenon, like the Penguins ornament that sold 2 weeks ago and now this Snoopy ornament.  They have been in my store for over a year; then, bam, they sell within a week of each other.  Or, I will have a set of plates that have been sitting around for months; then, one plate sells and bam! within weeks, even days, the rest of the set sells – all to different buyers.  This happens a lot! Kinda weird, huh?

Sales for the week totaled $255.44.  Now THAT’S cash for trash!




UTILIKILT SURVIVAL Style Tan Men's Cotton Kilt 38 S – starting bid $160


I mentioned in last week’s Cash for Trash post that I bought 8 men’s kilts at the SA for $10.  Well, I listed them that Wednesday evening and the auctions are due to close later today.  All but one have bids, and I anticipate that all 8 will sell before the end of the day.  You can see my listings here.  Come back tomorrow to see how these ended!
Happy sales to you!
