Seems that June sales for many have been better this year than last. Hope that means even more sales in the coming months!
I made 36 sales last week, but not many were high sellers. Here are a few:
BAMBOO CAY Men's Light Green Embroidered Bamboo Resort Casual Shirt Sz L NWT NEW – paid $1.25 at Rummage – sold $39.99
I bought several men’s shirts for $0.80 to $1.25 at the church rummage sale I posted about here. I love rummage sales! One-stop shopping and prices are usually better than thrift stores. I’ve already sold 11 items to the tune of over $200! And I’m still listing items from this sale.
Peppercricket Farms Charles Wysocki's Peppercricket Grove Plate Antiques Quilts – paid $2.50 from GW – sold $32.15
I used to pick up collector plates if the price was right for reselling; but a few years back I stopped because they just weren’t selling. So when I ran across some Charles Wysocki plates at the GW, I hesitated buying them. I love these plates and I know there are many Wysocki fans.
I think there were about 8 plates, but I bought only three. I listed them at $23.99 with free shipping. I figured after shipping costs they would net about $15.00 each. Not only were they quick sellers, but this one sold to an international buyer. Yup, no free shipping! Wish I had bought all 8 of the Wysocki plates!
Remington Hot Rollers Tight Curlers H-1080I Pageant Prom 300 Watts (20) Wax Core – paid $4.99 at Savers – sold $32.84
I listed this hot roller set at a lower price because some of the rollers were damaged, although this didn’t affect its functionality. It sold within 3 days of listing and I’m thinking I should have listed it for more. Still glad for the sale!
Now that’s cash for trash!
Hard to believe that half a year has gone by! So how are my sales compared with last year? I wish I could say they were awesome, but the truth is that they’re about $800 less than what they were last year. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t been listing as much or because I haven’t run across any really big sellers, like the Pixar Disney Shirts. But I’m looking forward to the next half of 2012!
