I’ve been thinking about making this a weekly update for awhile now. Just for fun, here are my favorite five sales of the week, and favorite five newly listed (still for sale) items from this week.
Favorite Five Sales
Earlier in the week I thought about posting a complaint about the lack of sales – NONE for three days! Crickets all of Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. And then Wednesday rolled around and I had multiple sales, a couple more yesterday. Nothing so far today. All in all I’ve only had ten sales in the last week. Definitely the worst sales week since I opened my store almost two months ago. Boo. But, on to my favorites of the sales I did have!
This was the second time Kenny sold. This time he was actually paid for.

I got this guy as an “extra” in a plush bag at Value Village at the beginning of the year. (I bought the bag because I actually wanted whatever he was in the bag with – no longer remember what that might have been.) I thought he was cute, so gave him to my oldest on Valentine’s Day. He never gave him a second glance. What’s a mom to do? Sell him on eBay, of course.
|$14.99 – shipping|
The Walt Disney Song Book
I picked this book up at a yard sale for $1 a month or two ago. It is a book of sheet music.
|$27.99 – shipping|
Woolly Mammoth Plush
I generally steer clear of generic (non-character) plush, but I found this guy NWT at Value Village awhile back. I thought he was cute and different enough that I would give him a chance. (Probably paid 74 cents for him.)
|$16.49 – shipping|
I have found two copies of this book recently. This one is the nicer of the two, purchased at Value Village for 52 cents sometime in the last month. (For some crazy/odd/maddening reason, the first photo I take of the day on my new camera comes up with an error message, and it will NOT let me edit it. NO idea why. Super frustrating. And the reason you can see so much of my floor in the following photo.)

NOT YET PAID FOR
Favorite Five New Listings
Some of my favorites of my recently listed items. None of these have sold . . . yet.
This may never sell. Who is going to be looking for this? The tag says it is a SUVasaurus. But I thought it was funny, so I took a chance on it. Paid 74 cents for it at Value Village, and listed it just over a week ago.
Muppet Finger Puppets
Picked these up at a yard sale sometime this month. Paid maybe 50 cents for them? They are finger puppets. From Starbucks. Apparently these are two of a series of six.
Lilo & Stitch Potato Head Surf Board
I listed a few of the potato head accessories I bought in Florida. This one is my favorite because I couldn’t find any others listed. It is a potato head surf board. On a related note, there is apparently a “Surfing Spud” Potato Head that is very hard to find, and sells for a decent amount on eBay, should you ever come across one. (Completeds HERE.)
Wallace & Gromit Photograph Album
I think I paid a quarter (maybe 50 cents) for this a couple weeks ago at a Boy Scout rummage sale. It is a Wallace and Gromit photo album. As in, it will hold 30 of your photos. It appears to be new.
Star Wars Ewok Adventures DVD
Shhhh. Don’t tell my husband about this one. We’ve been talking about buying this movie recently. I came across it new for $15. I bought it. I looked up completeds. It’s out of print, so new copies are hard to come by. I listed ours high. Didn’t tell my husband I bought it. I figure I can sell this one and buy a used copy with the profits. Then it will be like we got the movie free!
And, just for fun, here is my current Facebook status, that I updated this evening:
