Week #4 of my Rags To Riches Challenge, which I posted about last week, has come and gone. I worked hard to list 34 new items for auction. I also relisted 16 items that didn’t sell the previous week. Of these, 19 items sold … woo, hoo! Here are my top sellers:
COLUMBIA Black Waterproof Ski Pants Size Sm ~ $27.00
TOMMY BAHAMA Women's Size 8 Sleeveless Silk Shift Dress ~ $20.50
COOGI MISSEs Green 2-PIECE Tank Sweater Skirt Outfit XS ~ $14.99
This COOGI outfit was a “wild card”. I’d never heard of COOGI until I read a recent post by the Queen of Auctions. COOGI sweaters can go for a lot of money so I was hoping this outfit would get multiple bids; but am still happy it sold for 3X what I paid.
So here’s how we did this week:
|Auction Sales Week #4:||$242.15||Total: $744.07|
|Costs Week #4:||$76.30||Total: $262.39|
|Fees (eBay & Paypal):||OUCH!!||Total: $137.78|
|Total Net Profits:||$343.90|
Those fees take a BIG bite and sure do hurt! At this rate, I’ll never reach my goal of $4,000 by July 1 so I’m looking to sell on Craigslist. I’ve never sold or bought on CL and I’m a bit intimidated, but not enough to forgo trying it. I have a few items that I’ll be listing next week. Let’s see how that goes … wish me luck!
I know last week I said I’d be posting about a couple of tools I use to list and ship my items. Thought I’d get it done this week, but I had 3 days of jury duty. I’m glad to do my civic duty but it sure messed with my schedule. I’m just glad I was not selected to serve on a trial. So I should be able to get these posts done very soon. Please stay tuned!
Total online sales for this week, including eBay store, were $465.56! Now THAT’S cash for trash!
