Sales have been lukewarm but steady this month. I’ve had just over 100 sales so far and looks like I’m not going to reach my monthly sales goal this month. I’m sure it’s because I haven’t been listing as much as I would like. Ya’ll know, the more you list, the more you sell.
But I did have some great sales with these western and flannel shirts I found at garage sales for only $1 each. These were all auction-style listings.
PENDLETON Virgin Wool Board Shirt RED PLAID Loop Collar USA MADE XL TALL – Paid $1 @ GS – Sold $33.00
PENDLETON Virgin Wool Board Shirt BLUE & RED PLAID Loop Collar USA MADE 2X TALL – Paid $1 @ GS – Sold $37.99
I always pick up Pendleton shirts when I find them, but ya really gotta check for holes in the wool fabric. These 2 Pendleton shirts were in great condition and were both a tall-and-big size. Too bad they weren’t vintage cuz those can bring in over $100!

Panhandle Slim Retro Western Shirt White w/ Brown Trim Turquoise-Button-Snap XL – paid $1 @ GS – sold $29.99
Vintage WRANGLER Western Southwestern Navajo Button Shirt Men's XL 17-17.5 NEW – Paid $1 @ GS – Sold $19.98
I also pick up most western shirts when I run across them cuz I know they’re a sure sale. Check out this list from Frank @ Fruzies; he has a great post on western shirts. I was really hoping the vintage Wrangler shirt would bring in a little more as it was brand new; but I’m thinking maybe the pink color was not so hot.
Well, I would say a return of $120.96 on a $4 investment ain’t chicken feed! So keep your eyes open for flannel and western shirts when you’re out thrifting or saling.
Speaking of western flannel shirts, here’s a great BOLO tip from Suzie Q., who left a comment about Arrow Chevella shadow plaid shirts.

Now that’s Cash for Trash!
