Sales have picked up a little as buyers scramble for last-minute holiday gifts and items. Ugly or not, sweaters continue to fly off the shelves.
I first read about the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” phenomena in January, so I bought holiday sweaters all year long. I then realized that any “ugly” sweater would also qualify as well as holiday sweatshirts and turtlenecks.
I think I’d collected about 20+/- when I started listing them in September. I was thrilled – and a little surprised – when they started selling. To date, I have sold about 40 sweaters. Not all are ugly, but I will usually list them as “ugly Christmas sweaters”.
Here are my top selling “uglies”:
These may or may not be the ugliest, but they were the highest sellers, selling between $25 to $40 each. I paid about $30 for the lot, and they sold for a total of $291.27. Sweaters are not usually part of the $2 Rag Day sales, so I have to wait for the 50%-off sale and pay little more than $2. Still, 10 times my investment is not bad.
When I started buying these sweaters, I wasn’t sure how well they would sell – after all, some were ugly! But I am definitely SOLD! Total amount of sales for all sweaters is almost $800!! Now that’s cash for trash!
Believe in yourself and prosper!
Happy thrifting and selling!
