Okay, so it’s really Thursday! Story of my life: always a day late and a dollar short …
Anyway, I have been pleasantly surprised this year that my June sales have been jumping. Last year, my June sales were miserable – the lowest month of the year. I usually have numerous sales when I do auctions, but most of these sales have been from my store.
Nothing really exciting, but here are some of my sales from the past couple weeks:
Folk Art Stoneware Pottery Coffee Mug with Mustache & Beard Face – paid $0.98 from SA – sold $19.58
I never realized these face mugs were good sellers. Some of the handcrafted stoneware mugs with the distorted ugly faces can go for up to $40-$50. I never picked them up cuz I thought they were so ugly that no one would buy them! This is definitely a BOLO item.
Mac Tonight Ronald McDonald House Mug Stoneware Advertising Fast Food 1997 – paid $1 from SA – sold $21.33
Vintage Russ Gonga Ape Monkey Thumb Sucking Sucker Plush Stuffed Doll 1977 – paid $1.50 from GW – sold $24.98
THE AMITYVILLE HORROR JAY ANSON 1977 BCE HC DJ w BRODART ARCHIVAL BOOK COVER – paid $0.10 from SA – sold $28.99
J McCall Blue Sky Clayworks Relief Decorated Floral Butterfly Shallow Bowl Plate – paid $2 at GS – sold $32.08
THEORY Women's Black Tweed Wool Blend Business Dress Slacks Pants Size 4 – paid $1 at SA – sold $27.49
I also made a sale on Etsy! I only have a handful of items listed but one of the items was this quilt top that I made a couple years ago:
QUILT Scrappy Millennium Star Nickel Quilt Top 62 x 62 NEW – sold $60
I really want to increase my Etsy store but just trying to find the time is a challenge. I just read on The Selling Sisters that Rachel was able to get her eBay inventory up to 1,150 listings! Wow! And wants to maintain her store at that level. That’s a whole lotta work. I tried listing 100 a week, but only got up to 75 … and that took ALL week. I probably shouldn’t watch TV when I list … I get easily distracted.
Hope your June sales have been good!
Happy eBaying and thrifting!
