Siiiick. That’s been me for the better part of a week. Not terrible sick, just a whopper of a cold that left me feeling tired, cranky, achy, and unmotivated. I haven’t listed anything new in days. And my sales are starting to show it. (AND I am way, way, way, waaaaay behind on my listing goal for the month.)
I started feeling better last night, just in time to get some work done with my consignment inventory. Thank goodness I had already gotten a bunch of it done a couple weeks ago! I finished getting things organized today, and will drop off tomorrow. Pretty much everything I take is non-eBay-worthy-just-wanna-get-rid-of-it. I price it dirt cheap because I don’t want to see it again. I’ll be happy to clear a couple hundred dollars, which I plan to use to pay for my oldest’s birthday party that I just booked for next month.
Yay, Halloween! So many of the sales I have had are Halloween-related. I think I may sell more Halloween related items in September/October than I do Christmas-related in November/December. They’re just flying out the door. Here’s one of my favorites, because of where it’s going:
The message makes it sound like it was a rush, but it really wasn’t. It should have gotten there with several days to spare.
On a related note, a week or so before I sold this costume I actually noticed that if you have tickets to the Oct 31st “Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party” that you can flip them on eBay. Check out completeds HERE. The tickets for the 31st are sold out, so I can’t tell how much they were originally selling for, but other nights are still available and are selling for around $75 per ticket (+ park admission is my understanding). Not a cheap night for the family, but it sure sounds like tons of fun! And I guess buying directly from Disney is a bargain compared to the eBay prices on tickets for the 31st!
I’ll do a Halloween-related post at the end of the month that includes more of those sales. I love selling costumes! Anybody have a fun Halloween-related sale to share?
