When I got there, I was surprised – and happy – to see the parking lot was relatively empty. I was also happy to know their price was still 69-cents a pound for non-clothing items. But when I walked in, I was disappointed to see that most of their bins were filled with clothes. I didn't expect to find much; but by the time I walked up to the cashier, I had a full cart of goodies.
I spotted this GI Joe missile launcher the moment it came rolling out in a bin. I thought I would have a fight on my hands, but everyone else was interested in shoes and purses. Unfortunately, the jeep that goes with it was in another bin that rolled out later, and someone else beat me to it. I’ll be listing this for $45 plus shipping.
This is an online picture of a CeCe Kent pet carrier that is just like one I picked up at the outlet. When I first picked it up, I thought it was a purse. Then I realized it was a pet carrier and thought I would keep it for Mimi, my little Chihuahua. When I remembered how much she hates the carrier we already have, I put it back. But it was a really nice quality suede bag and I thought it might be worth something. Looked it up on my Smartphone and discovered these retail new for over $400!! Holy cow, I almost tripped on my own 2 feet running back to grab it before it was gone.
Once I got home I researched it and found several online websites selling this very same bag for between $300-$500. Are these prices real or ridiculously over-blown? I only saw one used that sold on eBay for about $50 – blah! My bag is very clean and looks to be unused but it’s obviously pre-owned. I figure I paid about $1 for it, and I’m thinking I’ll list it for $200 with a Best Offer.
I found a few other things at the GWO:
- 6 pairs of shoes
- 3 jackets, including a vintage Levis Sherpa denim jacket
- 2 vintage Disney/Pixar sheets
- Some vintage dinnerware and few more odds-and-ends
I spent $82 and hope to turn that into $1100+ in revenue! I love the outlets!
