Cash for Trash: March and April Sales

Woohoo, 6 sales for the past two months! I've been busy with DIY projects around the house, so no time to even think about eBay.  But still making some sales.  Here are my best 3 sales:

Snowy Owl Life-Like Large Plush Stuffed Bird Discovery Channel - Paid $1.21 @ GWO - Sold $24.99 - Net Margin 46%

Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Puppy Interactive Plush Dog Toy with Sounds - Paid $0.77 @ GWO - Sold $16.80 - Net Margin 39%

This puppy went to a buyer in Washington.  He said he bought it for his son who has special needs and loves the interaction.  The buyer asked me to contact him if I ever have more.  Not a big sale but thought I'd share another niche to consider: toys for children with special needs.

Music Man VHS - Paid $0.25 @ GS - Sold $17.93 on Amazon - Net Margin 43%
I don't know what possessed me to dabble in selling VHS tapes.  I suppose it was something I read in a blog or FB post.  I bought a dozen tapes at thrift stores and garage sales, picking those that were still sealed. This one and another tape made a few bucks, but the rest were losers. Let's just say, this venture was very short-lived!

We've been busy painting and sprucing up the old homestead.  And I am just thrilled to finally get new kitchen appliances.  The old ones were almost 20 years old and on their last leg.  Lots of work but what a difference these changes make. 

And, I am so very excited because I'll be visiting my DD and her family in Texas next month for DGD's high school graduation.  She's the oldest so one down and three more to go!

Well, that's it for now until the next time ...

Believe in yourself and prosper!
