July was a bit of a crazy month for me, and August promises to be even more so. Most importantly, we are supposed to get the keys to our new house this afternoon. YAY! I know that it will be the start of a ton of work, but it’s still exciting.
Sales seemed to pick up a bit for me in July, both in quantity and quality (some higher-priced items were selling). I sold a total of 88 items.
ALSO, I sold my first two items on Amazon! I found a steal of a deal on a brand new set of books that I had previously sold on eBay. I bought 4 sets for around $20/each, and two have already sold for $100 + shipping. I still haven’t ventured into FBA, I just shipped them out myself.
I set a low listing goal in July of 100 new items, which I was able to meet.
My family spent some time with my inlaws this last weekend, and I forgot my camera at their house. (!!!!) They are about a two hour drive away. My MIL is incredibly kind and immediately put it in the mail to me (without my even asking her to), but I feel like I’ve been scraping the bottom of the barrel as to what I have left to list that is already photographed. In a way, it’s good – some of these things have been languishing unlisted too long. On the other hand, I’m ready to photograph and list some new/different/fun items.
As I said before, this next month will be a bit crazy with moving and all. I am going to keep my listing goal low again at 100 new items.
I’ll share photos of the new digs soon. I’ll have a big storage room AND an office just for eBay. Hooray!
