Another week and another dollar earned! It’s great to see that sales have picked up and it really motivates me to list, list, and list. Here are a few of my best sellers from the past couple of weeks:
PHAT FARM SWEATSHIRT HOODY HOODIE Black with Blue Men's Size XL – paid $1.00 @ sa – sold $47.49
I found this great sweatshirt for $1 at the SA and listed it at $28.99 with free domestic shipping. It went to an international buyer who paid $18.50 for shipping. I love international buyers!
Brooks Brothers White Gray Striped Non Iron Cotton Mens Dress Shirt 17.5 – 35 – paid $2 @ SA – sold $34.99
I was happy to find this Brooks Brothers shirt at the SA after reading this post by Frank @ Fruzie’s Collectibles. It was a quick seller, too! Be sure to read Frank’s post about the top 6 selling brands of men’s shirts. Thanks, Frank!
JOS A BANKS Men's Bill Cosby Multicolor Long Sleeve Crewneck Sweater Sz XXL 2 XL – paid $1 @ sa – sold $28.99
And, thanks to Tristen @ The eBay Entrepreneur for the great tip on Bill Cosby sweaters. I knew about Coogi sweaters made famous by Bill Cosby. But I didn’t realize that other sweaters could also be called Bill Cosby sweaters. Tristen’s timing with this post couldn’t have been better as I had already bought the sweater; and because of Tristen’s post, I listed this as a Bill Cosby sweater with a higher fixed price. It sold within a few days!
VINTAGE PROCTOR SILEX 4-Slice Pastry Toaster T806W Chrome White NEW IN BOX – paid $4 @ gs – sold $75
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about my thrifty treasures which included this toaster. I am happy to say it sold for a whopping $75! Ka-ching!
Mervyn's California Mission Santa Ines LE Porcelain Midwest Canon Falls 1998 – paid $4.48 @ GW – sold $59.99
Hard to believe it was so long ago, but 3 years ago I wrote this post about a lot of Mervyn’s missions that I found at the GW. I kept those missions for a few months but eventually sold them on eBay. These are super hard to find, but a couple weeks ago I found this one at the GW. It was tucked, hidden, underneath a rack of shelves of knickknacks. I barely glimpsed the red box but knew immediately what it was. I’d sold my previous missions for $35, but listed this one at $60 since there are so few around. Check out my completed listing here.
Vintage 1900s Hand Quilted Finished QUILT Bed Size 84 x 85 – sold $155.95
I bought this vintage quilt YEARS ago at an estate sale. I don’t remember how much I paid for it, but I decided it was time to let it go to a new home. I have had this quilt listed since last year both on eBay and Etsy. I have no idea what it’s worth, but I started the listings at $195 – months later, still no sales. I lowered the price to $175 – months later, still no sales. Again, I dropped the price another $20 and voila! It finally sold. It now has a new home and I have $155.95 in my account.
Now that’s CASH FOR TRASH!
Happy saling and selling!
