Sales are hopping! At the risk of totally jinxing myself, the last few days have been great. I had planned to get some listing done this morning but never got to it because I had so many items to get packaged up – a good problem to have. This is the first really good streak I’ve had this year, surpassing my loose goals of 5 sales (or $100+ in sales) per day.
Here are a few of my favorites from this week:
|Cleo Pinocchio Plush
Paid: $4 @ consignment sale, Sold: $29.95 (listed since October, 2014)
I listed a bunch of footie pajama lots in November (I’d guess at least 10 different lots, maybe more) and every single one of them has already sold. The ones below I took out of my youngest son’s dresser last week. He hasn’t been wearing them, is close to outgrowing them, and I figured I might as well get them listed before winter is over.
|8 Pairs of Carters Footie PJs, size 3T
Paid: $8ish total @ various yard sales, Sold: $34.95 (3 days after listing)
Costumes sell all year long! Whenever I find toddler-sized Old Navy costumes I always look them up. Some of them can sell for pretty good money. Baby sizes not as much (although there are always exceptions, like the cheeseburger costume I sold for $50 last October).
|Old Navy Chicken Costume, size 5T
Paid: $7? @ consignment sale, Sold: $44.95 (listed since October, 2014)
I bought this hat last summer at a friend’s yard sale. I go to enough yard sales that several times each summer I wind up at yard sales of people I know. I’m not a fan. Either I feel bad because they don’t have anything I want to buy (and I feel like I should buy something), or they know I resell, and I don’t want them feeling like I’m trying to make a buck off of them. Awkward.
|VTG Smokey the Bear Snapback Hat
Paid: $1 @ ys, Sold: $39.95 (listed since November, 2014)
More maternity clothes, no surprise. This particular skirt is an Australian brand.
|Ripe Maternity Jean Skirt
Paid: $1 @ consignment store, Sold: $27.95 (listed since September, 2014)
And an honorable mention too! I have had this hanging around for-ev-er and had been waffling between listing and redonating it for months (it’s from the ’80s and shows its age a bit).
|Snuffleupagus (Sesame Street) Christmas Stocking
Paid: $0.25? @ ys, Sold: $24.95 (5 days after listing)
